Pulp Fiction Newsletter Week of 6/7/17

Hello everyone!  What’d y’all think of Wonder Woman! I think that “No Man’s Land” sequence is an all-timer. We have three deals of the week for you! Donny Cates continues to bring the fire after God Country and Redneck with Babyteeth, Cullen Bunn and Jack Cole deliver another unsettling horror book (I really enjoyed this one!), and Howard Chaykin…has a thing he’s doing too. Also, Iceman gets the spotlight, Master Race FINALLY concludes, and Darth Vader returns to an ongoing series.

On the trade side, we have a reprint of a Frank Miller book that will remind you he used to be “transgressive” in the best ways (how is transgressive not a word?), more Kung Fu, and another Spidy omnibus.

Last very important note: the Culver City store is having problems with its internet this week, and while they’re doing their best to get it fixed, it would be a good idea to bring cash with you on Wednesday.

See you at the bottom…

Making Comics Class
Saturday June 10th from 12PM – 3PM

The class runs for 12 weeks and costs $350. The class is open to writers and artists and runs for ten sessions. Writers learn the ins and outs of comic scriptwriting, visual storytelling, how to find and work with an artist, and much more. Artists learn sequential storytelling skills, page design, and best practices for drawing, inking, and completing comics pages. Artists work on and finish an eight to ten-page short comics story. Writers complete a 15-page script for a short complete story. Everyone learns together and from each other as well as from my instruction and examples. Warning: you may be forced to read good comics.

The class is taught by long-time comics editor and writer Jim Higgins. Jim is a former DC Comics editor, small publisher, screenwriter, freelance comics editor, and comics consultant.  He’s been teaching in art colleges for almost 20 years (The School of Visual Arts, CalArts, Otis College of Art and Design, UCLA Extension, and more).  Jim’s show, Crafting Comics with Jim Higgins, appears on Nerdist’s subscription-based online network Alpha (www.projectalpha.com).
