Curls Studio Presents Carnival Anthology

I am extremely excited to announce that the Curls Studio Carnival Anthology will be premiering at Small Press Expo 2010 this weekend.

Check out the mini site to pre-order and look at contributor bios:

The idea came to me in the fall of 2009. The goal was to publish a book featuring the work of people I had met at comic conventions or people I admired. With the carnival theme in mind, I contacted everyone I wanted to contribute and asked them to contribute a two-page story with a beginning, middle and end. The book represents overall diversity in the comics format and shows what fantastic storytelling can be done with a minimal amount of pages.

The book is dedicated to showcasing how each of us tell our stories and our individual artistic styles. Sample the taste of 14 different writers and artists as we take you on an eclectic journey. Check out the amazing team roster below. I am so excited to have all these talented people contribute to the anthology.

The book is $4 with shipping to any location in the USA and $5 International. Books will not ship until after the premiere at SPX (look for Table H3 to purchase in person).
