In 2012 and beyond, we’ll be releasing more titles by female creators than ever before, with titles from Donya Todd, Isabel Kreitz and Line Hoven on the way very soon. Stay tuned to our Facebook and Twitter accounts for more news about upcoming releases!
As tomorrow most of you will be eating cucumber sandwiches and drinking tea from Will & Kate cups at this hour – you get your Blank Slate news a day early.
As you probably know we’ll be at TCAF next weekend.
What you may not know is that we’ll be participating in the Comics, Manga & Co. – The New German Comics Culture presentation and exhibit on Thursday May 5th at the Toronto Reference Library.
You can get full details here- we will be making a quick presentation discussing the German comics that we have published, the ones debuting at TCAF as well as the ones that will be released later this year- talking a bit about the company in general and also making an announcement for a book that we’ve been working on since late last year. So if you’re in the area please join us! It should be a fantastic evening! We’re also really excited that Mawil will be present for this event and the weekend – as well as Joe Decie who will be attending for the release of The Accidental Salad.
Luchadoras has received it’s first review from Paul Gravett.
“Though much shorter at 97 ages, Luchadoras is a concise, focussed gem that deserves to sit up there alongside epics like Los Bros Hernandez’ Love & Rockets and Jessica Abel’s La Perdida as another empathic, perceptive portrayal of troubling aspects of contemporary Mexican society.”
You can read the entire review in his May Previews.
