BEST BETS: "Jessica Jones," "Big Trouble/Escape from New York" & More October 2016 Highlights
The small publisher Koyama Press announced yesterday that they are making a selection of their works available digitally via the Sequential app, which is an iOS-only app that focuses on indy comics and graphic novels.
The initial lineup seems to all be older books, or at least, there don’t appear to be any from this year, but there are some solid titles here from well-regarded creators: Julia Wertz’s The Infinite Wait, Nathan Bulmer’s Eat More Bikes, Julie Delporte’s Journal. And this is just the start—more titles are on the way.
The books are on sale this weekend for half off the print price, so this is a good opportunity to check out some comics you may have missed—especially as some of them are out of print.
If I am grateful for nothing else, it’s that 2012 was the year I was introduced to the work of Nathan Bulmer, creator of the daily and often uproariously funny webcomic Eat More Bikes. That introduction is in large part due to Tucker Stone, who has been regularly featuring Bulmer’s comics in his weekly column, “Comics of the Weak.”
Bulmer celebrated the end of the year with the release of his new comic, naturally titled Eat More Bikes, from Koyama Press. I had the chance to chat with Bulmer about the new series, how he got into comics and the challenges of producing a daily comic.
Happy Veterans Day and welcome to What Are You Reading?, our weekly look at the comics, books and other things we’ve been perusing of late.
