Among the terrific creators
in this latest anthology are:
Frazer Irving, Britain’s National Comics Award-winning artist currently working on
Marvel’s new Inhumans miniseries Silent War,
depicts the violent mayhem involved in 24 Hour Comics Day, which he
participated in at Comic-Kazi in Alberta.
Jeremy Bear, who participated at home in California,
brings us “Cubicle”. It’s a dramatic tale of a man struggling with an odd
conspiracy – or is he?
Tita Larasati lets us in on her life as a foreign student in The Netherlands in
“Transition”, drawn at the Lambiek comicstore in Amsterdam.
Spooky Doll Kids creator Roseline
Lau, working at the Artrage event in Fremantle, Australia,

Hard Out Here for a Sea Monster”.
Bravo displays an action tale in “Ruins”, crafted at Hairy
Tarantula West in Toronto.

too-long absence with a tale drawn at The Comic Bug in Manhattan Beach, California.

dragons, and a handsome prince.
Rob Osborne, the graphic novelist behind 1000
Steps to World Domination and Sunset
City for Active Senior Living, introduces the star of his next
graphic novel in “The Old Man and the Pants”, drawn at Austin Books in Austin,
And if you don’t want to
wade through all thousand pages of Ju Hui Judy Han’s
PhD thesis in cultural geography, you can read her 24 page comics version of
it, created at Elfsar Comics & Toys in Vancouver.
