FACES OF MATH, Noah Van Sciver Poster
After many requests, we’ve printed up this great one-pager from Noah’s sketchbooks. It’s 11×17, so it fits into a cheap frame, easy. It’s digitally printed, so if you spill something on it, you won’t feel like you just destroyed a work of art.
And, it’s a great poster. We only printed up 50 of ‘em, so get ‘em while they’re still available — $6 and they come rolled in their own tube. Fancy!
If you haven’t checked out the two volumes of sketchbooks put out by the great folks at Tinto Press, you should — you get pick up both volumes for $25, I believe.

LA-based cartoonist & sign painter Joseph Remnant’s Blindspot is yet another incredible one man anthology. With four stories told over 32 pages, this is an incredible comic, and, let’s be honest, where else can you pay $1.25 for a great story?
And he delivers it all — there are really hilarious moments in this comic, tragic & scary moments, and truly inspiring and uplifting moments. It’s hard to pack this much of a wallop into a single issue comic, but Remnant pulls it off. Do yourself a favor, and buy this one.
ST. COLE, pt. 1
In St. Cole, Noah tells the tale of Joe, an everyman schlub with a girlfriend and a baby, working a crummy pizza job. Joe drinks a little too much for his own good, and over the course of a week, Joe systematically (though, seemingly not purposefully) destroys his life.
St. Cole, pt 1. is the first 40 pages of the story, covering Saturday and Sunday. We’ve printed up a scant 250 copies of this comic, only available from Noah, our bricks-n-mortar shop, or here.
We’re not going to reprint this in this form, so once they’re gone, they’re gone for good, so grab one now!
For the last seven years, Noah Van Sciver has been honing his storytelling and draftsmanship in the pages of Blammo, his one-man anthology. Issue #8 of the series delivers eight wonderful pieces in forty pages, showing yet again that the pamphlet comic is still a critical tool in the medium of comic art.
Aside from Blammo stalwarts ‘Chicken Strips’ and ‘Punks vs. Lizards’, this issue contains a wonderful broken heart/ghost story, a Grimm Brothers fairytale, a dream comic and a little bit of surreal goodness.
Whattya waitin’ for, kid? BUY IT!
THE FRANTASTIC FOUR
The fifth publication from the mighty Kilgore Empire comes from 2011 Xeric Award winner Sam Spina.
Sam has been impressing the heck out of folks with his daily comic diary (collected in the self published Spinadoodles vols 1 & 2), his mini comics about everything from his grandma to his love of fire as a child, and the aforementioned Xeric funded Fight.
He’s an impressive young man, and we’re really excited to publish his latest, The Frantstic Four. Get it while supplies last!
The latest installment from Ignatz-nominated independent comic legend Noah Van Sciver.
What he lacks in awards, fame and credibility, he makes up for with heart. Also some of the tightest line work and best storytelling in this generation of cartoonists.
So, read Blammo by the cartoonist who Zak Sally said, ‘will bury us all!’
Noah has been self publishing Blammo for a number of years, and with issue #6, we’re pleased to take the publishing load off his back to let him focus on what he does best — make amazing comics.
Noah’s work has been seen in Mome, The Comics Journal, and the Denver Westword where he publishes the weekly ‘Four Questions’ feature.
This issue clocks in at 32 pages, and includes the Ignatz-nominated story ‘Abbey’s Road’, which as also a selection for the ‘Best Comics of 2010′ collection.
For four bucks, you can’t lose.
Each quarter, Kilgore Books & Comics will be printing up a little zine that includes interviews, sketchbook pages, and random ephemera. Each issue is $3.75, ppd.
KBC #1: Jan-March 2010
Check out the issue that Crumb said was “almost completely unreadable from front to back…it was just lame“.

KBC #2: April-June 2010
The imminently more readable second issue. Interviews with Ian MacKaye & Adrian Tomine, sketchbook pages from Lonnie Allen, Lilli Carre, John Porcellino, & Noah Van Sciver. Seriously, a much better issue. Each issue comes with an actual item found in a book at KBC. Cover by John P.
