spx-logoEvery summer the gang at the 8th Wonder Press orbital satellite hits to road to bring fine comics to conventions around the country.  There’s always been one show that’s been a little elusive for us, though: the Small Press Expo in Bethesda, MD.  We’re all really excited that this year we’ve made it into the line-up!  This year’s guests include amazing talents like Dan Clowes, Trina Robbins, Jeffrey Brown, Tom Gauld, and….well, let’s just say it’s rarified company to be in.

This is our first East Coast show, and we’re really excited to get a chance to meet a whole new group of fans (particularly INDIE comic fans).  If you’re going to be at the show September 17-18, please be sure to come by and say hi.  And if you’re not already planning to be there, it’s not too late to make plans.  SEE YOU AT THE SPX!

This Weekend: Cowtown Comics Fest

Posted: November 20, 2014 in Conventions

Cowtown Comics FestAfter a couple years absent, this weekend marks the return of the Cowtown Comics Fest.  This is exciting news for us, because it’s the first time CCF has happened since we started publishing.  It’s a wonderful celebration of indie comics, and is totally 100% free for attendees.  Guests will include Uncanny Adventures contributor Mister V (Arborcides) as well as Stan (The Wang) Yan, John (King Cat) Porcellino, and Noah (The Hypo) Van Sciver.  If you’re in Denver this weekend and love comics, you can’t go wrong.

Quick, what’s the best way to close out your summer?

Spend it at Salt Lake Comic Con!Salt Lake Comic Con 2014

8th Wonder Press is pleased to announce we’ll be returning to Utah for the 2nd annual Salt Lake Comic Con, September 4-6!  We had a wonderful time last year, meeting some of the greatest fans in the Western U.S., and we couldn’t be happier to come back and see everyone again.

Uncanny Adventures - Science vs Mad Science Front CoverWhat’s new this year?  Well, for starters we’ve got a brand new anthology, featuring 18 amazing stories by comics’ up-and-coming indies creators.  This year we’ve done a Science/Mad Science theme and wrapped it up with a great cover by Ryan (Comic Book Comics, Action Philosophers) Dunlavey!  This year’s book is bigger, better, and more scientific than anything we’ve ever published!

What’s old?  We’ve only got a couple boxes left of last year’s Uncanny Adventures anthology, and we’ll be bringing them with us.  If you snag both books, we’ll even cut you a pretty great deal on the set.  (And don’t tell the boss, but a couple will be signed by cover artist Ethan (Axe Cop) Nicolle!)  What else?  We’ll be back with our Draw Your Own Comics book, which Salt Lake sold us out of last year!  And as always, if you catch our Editor-in-Chief, he’ll be (poorly) drawing cats as superheroes all weekend long.

Just look for 8th Wonder Press under the giant Tri-Bear-A-Clawps banner!

As we’ve been equal parts promising and threatening, last month was our big debut at Denver Comic Con.  We came armed with plenty of copies of our Draw Your Own Comics book and Uncanny Adventures, our first anthology.  Meanwhile, Denver came prepared with 61,000 (!!!) comic fans, making it one of the United States’ largest comic conventions in only its second year.

(We’ll have plenty more pictures to come, but we wanted to share some fun pics from the con before too much time had passed!)

We sold plenty of books, but most importantly we met some terrific fans and pros out there (not to mention several of the anthology creators we’d never met in person yet)!  If you were there and stopped by to say hi, thank you so much!  It was great to meet each and every one of you.  And if you didn’t have a chance to make it to Denver we’re still lining up convention appearances for the rest of the year.
