Help a Starving to Death Artist


(Click to make WAY BIGGER)


I’m cutting it pretty close with my rent right now, and might not be able to pay my student loans this coming month, so until June 1st I’m selling any of my originals (which I know are unusual) for only $10 plus S+H.  So help a brotha out and get some art for crazy cheap!  Other deals will follow as well.


If you are interested, email me: momoftheyear@gmail.com



I am also selling The Life and Times of Eric Gunose for the very reduced price of $8 with free shipping!!!  I can guarantee I won’t be selling it for this cheap again and it’s very likely it will sell out because I don’t have many copies left, so get one while you can for cheap!  This deal runs out June 1st and after that it’s $10 plus shipping ($15).


You can only get this deal by emailing me: momoftheyear@gmail.com



I am also selling these screenprints which are normally $30 for half off. 


So that’s $15 and if you’re in the U.S. I’ll throw in free shipping!! (shipping for canada $1, everywhere else $2)


Help me pay my rent and get a rare emo sludge/suffer vacation print for cheap!


To take advantage of this deal email me: momoftheyear@gmail.com

CCC at Osaka Zine Fair

At FLOAT

Last Saturday I boarded a subterranean elevator, crawled through an undersea tunnel, and emerged into the afternoon light at FLOAT, the live music space in Nishikujo hosting this year's Osaka Zine Fair.

Mika and Anna did a great job organizing the show. It was exciting to see so many people in this "scene" all at one place (I mean, I had never been to something like this before in Osaka). There were several workshops, including a "Lynda Barry" workshop (no, she was not present) and a kids' activity called "Walking With Bear." Homemade snacks were on sale in the front. It was nice to relax by the river adjacent to the building. Beautiful day, too.

Hanging out on the river

There were a lot of people with different kinds of work. Not so many comics. A lot of nice Riso printing. I found out about a popular Risograph print shop in the area called Retro Jam Printing, that specializes in zines, flyers, and posters! Also, can you believe: there was another American guy who went to MICA at the same time as me! I used to see this guy around the Brown Center all the time. Small world, right? Sam is also currently in the JET program, in Nara.

I debuted SF Supplementary File #1, but didn't make a lot of sales until Sayaka showed up in the end & started chatting up the passersby. We went home and spent the money on pizza and read zines on the kitchen floor:

My haul

Finally, this is a giant bear head! Over and out! (P.S. Thanks to Victoria Long for the photos here -& see you next time you're in town, I hope!)

SF Supplementary File #1 available ONLINE and IN PRINT

SF Supplementary File #1

The comics community has been abuzz in recent weeks following the release of SF #1, CCC's new adventure series about a boy caught up in the galactic war between the Space Pirates who killed his parents, and the team of Scientist Fighters who invite him to join the Space Fleet.

TCAF was a big success for SF, but we're even more excited that Ryan Cecil Smith released the first in a brand new line of minicomics that will explore back-stories and sub-plots in the SF universe. This new miniseries is called SF Supplementary Files.

SF Supplementary File #1 is a 12-page coming-of-age tale about Gorum, the rugged outdoorsman of the Space Fleet Scientific Foundation Special Forces. Where is he from? What sparked his interest in science? How did he become so tough and rugged? What is his dark past?

The answers are available to everyone in the blogosphere, because the whole issue is available ONLINE! Check it out! Come back... we'll wait. Loved it? We knew it! Lucky for you, you can order your own physical copy of SFSF #1. It's just 2 dollars, so grab it before the limited edition of 100 copies quickly sells out.








Ryan Cecil Smith has been writing, drawing, and publishing comics in America, Europe, and Japan for 8 years. He is a founding member of the art blog and comics anthology Closed Caption Comics, now in its 9th issue.
