One of the most exciting new packages debuting at the MoCCA festival in April will be pood – an oversize newspaper anthology featuring some of today’s hottest alternative comics creators! Kevin Mutch and Alex Rader of Blurred Books have combined forces with Geoff Grogan of “Look Out! Monsters” to form BIG IF COMICS and to bring together an exciting array of talent in pood – a giant new package that lets each cartoonist strut their stuff!
Among the cutting-edge creators in the first issue of BIG IF COMICS’ pood: Joe Infurnari, Jim Rugg and Brian Maruca, Hans Rickheit, Connor Willumsen, Sara Edward-Corbett, Chris Capuozzo, Adam McGovern and Paolo Leandri, Lance Hansen, Andres Vera Martinez, Fintan Taite, Henrik Rehr, Bishakh Som, Mark Sunshine, Tobias Tak, Geoff Grogan and Kevin Mutch.
pood is a 16-page comics section in full color (and black and white) printed on newsprint, with a page size (17? x 22 ¾”!) that just may make it the biggest comics package on Earth! (or at least New Jersey). pood is BIG, COLORFUL, EXCITING comics in a beautiful broadsheet newspaper – right out of the Golden Age of Sunday Comics! pood has it all: sci-fi, Western adventure, bizarre drama, slapstick comedy and more! Each creator (or team) has turned their enormous page into a big, beautiful work of art!
pood offers a daring new (and old!) format for alternative comics, unlike anything on the store shelves today – and it’s a steal at $4.00! (Look for pood at the Blurred Books table at MoCCA!)
Following its debut at MoCCA, pood will be listed under the BIG IF COMICS imprint in the May 2010 Previews for comics shipping to stores in July 2010. pood will be published quarterly thereafter.
