black light diner distro, february update 2009

Hey everyone, just wanted to show you some of the comics and zines that have been recently added to Black Light Diner Distro!

Leann’s travel diary documents her journey to Chicago in January 2007 to take a writing class with cartoonist Lynda Barry (one of my favorites, too). On the way, she celebrates Xmas with family, bonds with her sister, explores art galleries, and trawls the Windy City. The drawings are filled with a certain rough naivete, not unlike those of Ms. Barry herself. Includes a Chicago travel guide for vegans and art lovers.

FATAL//ROMANTIC (Pittsburgh, PA)
This anthology contains seven short comic stories by artist and writer Soren Lundi, spanning time periods and mythologies, featuring mad princes, immortal wooden dolls, and chainsmoking androids.

This issue of Matthew Reidsma’s daily diary comic strip covers July 2008 and part of August. Both the concept and execution remind me of James Kochalka’s American Elf, and since Kochalka is possibly my favorite cartoonist that is high praise indeed. This is a neat little look into a month of someone else’s life.

What if the rapture happened… and you weren’t totally sure you’d accepted Jesus into your heart? Matthew Reidsma’s cute cartoons provide a sharp contrast to a tale of childhood religious indoctrination.

HUNK & BIRD #1 (Amherst, MA)
Bird (Leann from “Eighteen Long Days”) and her partner Hunk team up to bring you hourly comics, an abortive salvia divinorum experience, and caricatures galore.

Interested? Visit the site to order, or send any questions to blacklightdiner at gmail dot com. Thanks for reading!

P.S. Anyone interested in a flyer exchange? I can place your flyers around the Pittsburgh, PA area record stores, comic shops, etc if you'll do the same for me. Email me!
