So this is a shot glass display storage case (from Michael’s) which perfectly fits the few small objects we’ve got hanging around, with ten slots to spare currently. It’s got a nice hinged glass front. The back was black and is now fitted out with cream paper. At any rate, it’s a useful object if it’s the kind of thing you might be in the market for.
Top row, two extraordinary amigurumi from the lovely MJ Armero, that David Lafuente hand delivered at a Spanish comic convention . A found Spider-Man and a bespoke ookpik from the adored needle-felting maniac Robyn Bremner.
Middle row: Next Wave heroclix including a custom Swiss Army Machine Man.
Bottom row: a set of 1973 Belvision Tintin figures bought about 20 years ago in Calgary.
Shot glass case. You could probably use one.
edited to add: the shelves are flat.
Thank you so much to everyone who supports small, weird books. We care, you care. It’s pretty damn awesome. Maybe we need a team name for small, weird book lovers. I don’t think “Uncanny Hobo Force” is taken but you might have another suggestion.
Thank you so much to everyone who supported our small, weird book. And thank you to the lunatic fringe who bought it in both formats.
your friends in comics,

Snipe, originally released as a book object in a very limited edition of 100, consists of two discrete stories. Snipe I follows a wildlife photographer lost in the woods while memories of his previous night’s fever dream gradually surface. Snipe II is a highly detailed and possibly fictionalized account of the life and career WWII’s most celebrated sniper, Finland’s Simo Häyhä. Where these stories intersect is in the territory of memory and inaccuracy, myth-building and psychosis.
This project is another point on the Immonens’ trajectory of continually exploring comics and experimental storytelling.

My name is Kevin, my wife is Kirsten and my son is Kevin Jr., but we call him KJ. When we found out we were pregnant with our second child, it was a given that she would have a “K” name, we just didn’t know what it would be. Months of debate raged back and forth, and nothing really seemed to…
Money raised for a good cause AND a happy baby? That is a successful day.

Style, genre, history and more will all be discussed in this special one-on-one exchange.
A swell fella at Acme Expo asked about the Doop dialogue. Here it is for anyone else who might be interested. As I said to him, there’s not too much to it but it would have been an even more confounding reading experience if there had been.
2 DOOP: Okay. Arrangements are made and we are ready to roll, amigo.
4 DOOP: That’s what my sources tell me.
6 DOOP: If this is about that time in Rangoon with the Wittgenstein quadruplets..
8 DOOP: Turned out great.
11 DOOP: I borrowed it. For arrangements.
10 DOOP: My friend!
14 DOOP: IRON FIST!
14 DOOP: CATCH.
8 DOOP: Don’t tell him you swallowed it.
13 DOOP: NO YOU GET OUT OF THE WAY!
1 DOOP: My friend. My old friend. I haven’t seen you since we were working for Fury together in Saigon.
3 DOOP: Another successful mission, no?
4 DOOP: Your white tights look nice.
