It’s time for a news round-up!
We’re excited and honoured to announce the acquisition of publishing rights to forthcoming Wheetago War graphic novel ROTH, from bestselling and award winning indigenous author Richard Van Camp (Moccasin Square Gardens, The Lesser Blessed), collaborating with acclaimed illustrator Christopher Shy (Dead Space, I Sleep in Stone). ROTH unleashes the unique terror of the Wheetago, as glimpsed in several of Richard’s published short stories. We can’t wait to get his timely apocalyptic tale into the hands of readers.
Our upcoming anthology, Alberta Comics: Home, is also open for submissions! We’re seeking stories from Alberta-based creators about characters who relate strongly to their space, their base, or their roots. Be it positive or negative, our homes help create us, and these last few years of distancing, cohorts and quarantines have likely made that even clearer. You can find out more information about the project, and about how to submit, here.
And finally, we will be rolling up to CALGARY EXPO: LIMITED EDITION from September 10th to 12th, featuring creator guests Ryan Danny Owen, Kyle Simmers, Shea Proulx, Chase Kantor, Spencer Estabrooks, and Alexander Finbow. We can’t wait to see you there!
