It’s almost National Comic Book Day!

It’s almost National Comic Book Day! Here are a few amazing New England-based comic creators that we highly recommend.


Kurt Ankeny

Pleading with Stars

Pleading With Stars is a collection of stories about people interacting with each other, and the universe, and often finding that they themselves are smaller and yet more wondrous in comparison. From the mind and fingers of award-winning cartoonist Kurt Ankeny.

Pleading with Stars debuts at MICE October 19-20, 2019 at University Hall (1815 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge, MA).


Tony McMillen

Serious Creatures Issue 1 of 6, I was a teenage special FX wizard!

Meet Bobby Feckle, a teenage special effects wizard growing up alongside the movie industry of the 70s, 80s and 90s. Witness the glorious rise and even more fantastic fall of the practical effects industry through the eyes of the 14-year-old wunderkind who helped shaped both.

Serious Creatures is a love letter to monster movies, blockbusters, special effects and coming of age stories. It has the decades long scope of works like Goodfellas and Boogie Nights but also the in-over-his-head working kid charm of Almost Famous or...Doogie Howser, I guess?


Joe Haley, T.J. Dort

Underburbs Vol 4: Adventure Capital

A vampire girl from the monster world tries to take over the human world on Halloween night, and it’s up to a young witch –her newest recruit– to stop her!
