Upcoming Event: Fluke!

Wow, this year is flying! It's a month until an awesome one day show in Athens, Georgia: FLUKE! There's so much to love about this show, from the 40 Watt Club to the show's organizers, Robert Newsome and Patrick Dean, to Athens itself.  It's a great day for mini-comics and indie artists as well as their fans.  If you're in the area (and the area, I mean the South), you owe it to your mini-comic loving self to stop by and treat yourself to all the goodness of FLUKE.  

In addition to the show, I'll looking forward to a lunch trip to The Grit, which is one of my favorite vegetarian restaurants.  I'm convinced that the small Golden Bowl I got last time was an entire block of tofu!  The Grit's tofu is amazingly good and I was sad I couldn't eat the whole thing.  

Sketch Charlotte will be out in force bringing a piece of home to Athens starting with Henry Eudy.  Henry is debuting a new mini called Death Pinata about a deadly paper pony filled with skeletons. He's also planning on using his great Animal Alphabet and AlphaBeasts drawings in some form and I can't wait to see what he brings to the table. 

Sharing a table with the famous Mr. Eudy, will be Heroes' own creative director and colorful fellow, Rico Renzi. Rico is being rather elusive about the wares traveling to Athens with him, but I'm sure we see something pretty and pink on his table.

Last, but anything but last, Bridgit Scheide will have her brand new Brother Nash Mega Issue#1, Sketch Charlotte anthologies, prints, and stuff! :) I don't know about you, but I do so love stuff! She may also have a lovely table-mate in the shape of Herc Petmezas.  

Also representing Charlotte will be our very own local celebrity, Dustin Harbin. Dusty is sure to have his Diary Comics and lots of awesome prints in his wooden con box.  Stop by and ask him about the children's book he's currently working on. 

Moving outside of Charlotte, but still firmly in North Carolina, Ssalefish's own Adam Casey, will be making the trek from Winston-Salem this year and he has some big plans to stock his table: DRAC-DRAC-DRAC-DRAC-DRACULA: a mini containing Dracula stories, REAL LIVE BLEEDING FOREHEADS AND BROKEN WRESTLING RINGS: Portraits of professional wrestlers and HAHA: a collection of gag cartoons.  Just look for the beard and it will lead you to Adam.

Moving to NC adjacent artists, J. Chris Campbell, of lovely Greenville, SC will be in attendance with lots of neat comics and comic related items, including a new Neatobot featuring Orson Spinwell who has appeared in the Indie Spinner Rack Anthologies, his "Across the Universe" poster FLUKE version and some Neatobot buttons.

FLUKE takes place on April 21 in Athens, Georgia at the 40 Watt Club (located at 285 West Washington Street  Athens, GA 30601) from 11am to 6pm.  Only $2 gets you into a world of pure comic imagination. 

We hope to see you there!
