We are back!

I really wish I didn’t have to ever post a “we’re back” announcement on the Radiator Comics website, but here we are! After the whirlwind of a festival CAKE was in June, we almost immediately started packing our bags to move to sunny (and hot and humid) Miami, Florida! And just as we were unpacking our boxes, and getting Radiator back up and running, we had to load up our car, and head north to avoid the historic hurricane Irma! Miami and our tiny corner of it fared very well, and our thoughts are with people in Houston and especially Puerto Rico and other Caribbean Islands hit hard by hurricanes Harvey, Irma, José and Maria.

We are really happy to be back doing what we love to do, spreading the word about fantastic self-published comics like Isabella Rotman’s latest minicomic, Long Black Veil! Based on a folk song from the 60’s, Isabella has recruited singer/songwriter Jenny Owen Youngs to help put her own unique spin on the murder ballad. Of course it’s a great little nugget from Isabella, and it’s enhanced by an accompanying cover of the song by Jenny, which can be heard/seen on her website here.

The Small Press Expo was last weekend, which marked the start of a busy season for us! Continue reading

Launch Party tonight!

Hey everyone!

Radiator is skipping a week posting new titles in order to prepare for tonight’s launch party, at which we’ll celebrate Radiator’s start a month ago.

If you’re in Chicago, we’d love to see you at the Chicago Publishers Resource Center (858 N Ashland Avenue). The event starts at 7pm, and will last a couple hours. It’s free to attend, so bring friends! Here’s the facebook event, so you can show all your friends you’re super cool & attending the party.

Marian Runk, author of The Magic Hedge will be both presenting some comics and gracing us with a song or two! Caroline Picard, who draws the Chronicles of Fortune series will be reading a selection of her comics! Neil will say some words about Radiator.

We’ll also have Radiator Comics bookmarks & postcards for you to take, and a display of the titles Radiator carries, which you can read & enjoy. And of course, we’ll have snacks and drinks for you. Come by, say hi!

Next Tuesday, we’ll have new comics that feature crows, bugs, cryptids, wolves, rats, and wiener dogs!
