Can’t stand the suspense? Don’t want to wait until July to read New School? Well, actually, you don’t have to. While we sold out of all the copies of New School that were air-freighted to us direct from the Chinese printer and arrived in time for Dash’s store signing, we have three copies remaining from an errant box of New School that showed up after the fact, and which may be purchased here: http://www.copaceticcomics.com/comics/new-school
Dan Zettwoch is in the house! The new issue of Redbird – #2 – is a real treat. Don’t miss it. Available here: http://www.copaceticcomics.com/comics/redbird-2
We have a feeling that there are a few of you out there who don’t yet know that Kevin Huizenga has released a new comic book – The Half Men - and/or that it is now in stock at Copacetic. The Half Men includes his previously published contributions to NoBrow #6 (“Second Attempt”) and Kramers Ergot #8 (“The Half Men”, in which he “covers” – i.e., redraws/reinterprets – a story of the same name that originally appeared in Mysteries of Unexplored Worlds #8, originally published in 1956) as well as the new work “Bona, chapter 1”, which is a redrawing of the first 16 pages of Kona #1, originally published in 1962. See old comics in a new way. 33 pages of comics in all! And, as you can see by the photo, Copacetic has also received a restock of some of Kevin H.’s earlier self published comics. Don’t snooze on these…
This Saturday, May 18, from 6:00pm to 9:00pm, at Copacetic HQ, it’s the Official Release Party for Jeremy Baum’s MEMORY Anthology.

I like the purple Cadillac against the green sky. He also nailed the orangish-red of that era. Thanks, Derek!
Sales rep specializing in direct sales of small press comics into comic shops and related stores….
At Drawing Power, the name Tony Shenton came up as the “go-to guy” for self-publishing comics artists looking for a way to get their work presented to the network of “indy-friendly” comics shops in North America. To make life easy for anyone interested in getting in touch with him, here is his Tumblr, where he has in turn made it easy to get up to speed by supplying a number of info pages; of special interest to those seeking his services as a sales rep, are the pages, BEFORE YOU MAIL OR UPS to me…READ THIS! , Ask me anything & Let’s see your comics!
Fair warning: Tony certainly doesn’t agree to rep everyone who submits, so no one should be operating under the illusion that all they have to do is send something to him and they are on their way to fame and fortune, but he is generally good about providing feedback and encouraging artistic and professional growth. And anyone he does agree to rep can be sure that their work will be presented to all the stores that might have an interest. So, if you want to get your work out there, talk to Tony!
“Mystery Object” a new comic by Tom Scioli
New series from Tom Scioli: Mystery Object! Starts here, new installment every Wednesday, on AmBarb.com.
Tales of Wonder has begun to provide complete scans of “forgotten gems”, including this one of True Life Secrets #23, published by Charlton in 1954. Their interface for reading the stories in this issue is pretty abysmal, but they have provided super high-resolution scans of each page (each requiring two clicks to get to, and then two clicks to get back, and then two clicks to get to the next, etc.), so click through to dig in! Just be prepared for a lot of back-and-forth…
