Annapolis Valley Zine Library

Okay here is something I've been thinking about since moving out east 3 years ago. I am a big supporter of the Roberts Street Social Centre which houses The Anchor Zine Archive. I love what those people do. However, it is in Halifax and I am in Wolfville, which is an hour away in the scenic Annapolis Valley. So I have decided to take a corner of my own library, here at Conundrum Towers, and devote it to a branch of the zine library out here. So far it is only my own personal collection which consists of chapbooks, mini-comics, zines, and art...

DCAF wrapup

This weekend was the very first Dartmouth Comic Art Festival and I believe there will be more due to its success. Many comic enthusiasts came out to Alderney Landing to check out the scene. The space was ideal, I had a delicious fish and chips restaurant inches away and the ferry came and went outside the window. Claire Seringhaus (aka Alfred E Newman) hung out and charmed the Dartmouthians (Darties?). Sold some books. Bought a shirt. Thanks to Cal and Strange Adventures for being the catalyst to make all this a reality. I hope to see this as...

Sappyfest!

Sappyfest!

Since moving to the Maritimes Sappyfest in Sackville NB has become a regular summer event for me. This year was more subdued, however, since I just went for the Saturday to sell at the zine fair in the Legion Hall. No less awesome though. Wandered a bit and soaked up the vibe but didn't really see any bands. Here is a picture of lovely Sackville: I drove up with Claire Seringhaus to launch her new book of Dada-esque drawings The Blaring House. What a hilarious book! The room was abuzz. Or was that the heat? Reconnected with lots of folks,...
