One of the funniest, most truthful, and hardest working cartoonists in the world today, Noah Van Sciver is a fountain of great comics, zines, graphic novels, and strips.
From his early Blammo anthologies to his weekly strips for Westword and his recent Fantagraphics books Saint Cole and Fante Bukowski, Van Sciver is taking alternative comics by storm with his often hilarious, sometimes heart-breaking, always character-driven stories about wasted youths, drunk wannabes, and Abraham Lincoln.
The Denver cartoonist recently began a residency at The College of Cartoon Studies in Vermont, and will make a trip down to Philly to join us for the Locust Moon Comics Festival.
Will Laren is an illustrator and zine maker living and working in Philadelphia. After graduating from MICA in 2012 he joined the art collective Space 1026 where he continues to work to this day. His work has been included in publications like Vice Magazine, Mother’s News, As You Were, Universal Slime, and Skate Jawn.
Aaron Lange’s comix and writing have appeared in Mineshaft Magazine and a bunch of other zines you’ve never heard of. They might have names like Bongo Fear, Sex Mutilator, or Mondo Napalm – but hey, even he can’t remember. In addition to contributing to the marginalized “small-press,” he’s also self-published his new comic ROMP and the long(ish) running, cult(ish) classic Razor Burn.
M. Jacob Alvarez is a cartoonist, comedian and chemical engineer (seriously dude, silly drawings and conspiracy theory jokes don’t pay many bills…).
