HOLD ONTO SOME BUTTS-AS YOU WERE #3!

As You Were #3 is debuting at Emerald City Comic Con this weekend and we are pleased as punch! And only in-person (like this weekend in Seattle) are we slinging the mother fucking "our printer can’t follow fucking directions" white-cover-stock variant covers (shown to the right looking rather grey)! We have 20 grey ones, so exclusive you truly won’t notice the difference.

These won’t be available for mail-order or anywhere else for a couple weeks, more news on those shortly cause we’re gonna tell you all about it in the next week or two, if you’re not stoked, you’re wrong.

This one is so overflowing with great stories that it actually has A SPINE!? Yes, As You Were has graduated from zine to book. Convenient 4 quick access in your local zine libraries and comic-shops (a big list of who carries `em available soon!)  

Thanx to everyone who made As You Were such a success. If you submitted, drew, wrote, delegated and especially bought one and supported this project we love you. Come see us at ECCC and get a hand slap. <3<3<3<3<3

I’m in this! Go buy it!

WHAT IS THIS FRESH HELL? AS YOU WERE VARIANT COVERS.
As You Were #1 is back in print! Just for fun we made 300 with maroon cover-ink instead of black. Only available in person, like at the Emerald City Comic Con this weekend (or events coming up like APE, Punk Bowling, Portland Zine Symposium, San Diego ComicCon, SF Zine Fest, and maybe Plan It X Fest, or trade for cookies at our basement bad-idea office zone for all I care).
Only 300 in the ding dong world. You can mail-order the regular cover one again too or wait until next week for As You Were #3 which is sweeter than the honey of an albino bumble bee.

UK zine folk/punx - I have some copies of The Copyscams 10” (zine themed pop-punk, think J Church, Discount, etc). If anyone wants any then get in touch or visit my etsy shop to buy one directly - https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/183764766/the-copy-scams-copy-destroy-10-vinyl?ref=shop_home_active_4

This 10” record has 7 pop-punk songs about zines, a zine filled with lyrics, stories, lists, and more. Plus, a download code to get the album digitally that includes Copy Scam Live At Leeds (Zine Fest).

Read more zines indeed, picked up this lad at Sheffield Zine Fest last weekend. Great as ever, so glad Emma is making stuff again. More!

I was at the Sheffield Zine Festival on Saturday, it was a lot of fun.  Sat behind my stall, I set myself a challenge of documenting the day in a comic, but with no pencils and erasers - just straight pen to paper.  I actually found it really liberating to not obsess over mistakes and also, not have the option of erasing them.  The event lasted from 11am - 6pm and I managed to bang out 8 a5 pages in between socializing and selling stuff.

P.S.  For those that are interested - I used a rotring art pen and a copic marker on to the cheapest a5 hardback sketchbook I could find (£1 from Wilkinsons).

Private commission for someone I finished up last night.  The brief consisted of a black and white drawing of their daughter with &#8216;flowers, plants, leaves and shit&#8217;, so I went down the well trodden Alphonse Mucha route!

I&#8217;ve been a little quiet on here recently, i&#8217;ve been trying to knuckle down and get the next Rum Lad zine finished up.  I was hoping to get it done before the Sheffield zinefest this Saturday, but moving house last weekend has set me waaay back.  On the bright-side, I no longer have to worry about my books and clothes being covered in damp and even mould thanks to the old house!
