Our own Dan Mazur is pleased to have written this press release for the new BCR anthology, In a Single Bound.
The Boston Comics Roundtable and Ninth Art Press announce a new anthology comic book:
IN A SINGLE BOUND: Superheroes for Greater Boston and Beyond
First there was Inbound, then Outbound, Hellbound and now… In a Single Bound, the Boston Comics Roundtable’s anthology dedicated to superhero stories set in (and around) Boston. Featuring all-original characters created by local artists and writers, In a Single Bound presents superheroes with an independent comics flavor, but suitable for readers of all ages. True to the eclectic spirit of the Roundtable – a collective of Boston-area cartoonists founded in 2006 – the eight stores in the collection cover a wide range of tones: from satire, to light-hearted adventure, to nostalgic elegy. With masks and capes and the Citgo sign!
The registration details for the MICE 2013 comics show are now up. Registration itself doesn’t open until April 14th, but you can read all about it here: http://www.micexpo.org.
Remember that MICE 2013 is a two-day show this time around. We’re really looking forward to it.

In case you’ve been living under some rock that doesn’t broadcast news about the underground comics scene (I know, what are the odds, right?), MICE 2012 is this weekend, September 29th. What is MICE, you ask? Why it’s the Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo, a huge event celebrating comics and the people that make them. MICE is a co-production of the Boston Comics Roundtable and the Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University.
Want to learn more about MICE from a trusted source. Then may we point you towards this huge article that the Boston Globe published all about MICE and the BCR.
Come to the show to meet nearly a hundred independent local comics creators, special guest stars Robert Sikoryak and Box Brown, and more.

Hellbound, a BCR-affiliated anthology of horror stories, is now accepting submissions for its third anthology. Details can be found on its website. This year’s theme: darkness. Line up those bottles of india ink and get to work. The deadline for finished stories of June 15, 2012.
We’d like to give a big thanks to BCR member Franklin Einspruch for putting this incredibly useful calendar. It compiles nearly all the notable comic book shows for 2012. Most are in the U.S., but a few international shows also get a mention.
Read the original post on (the shockingly-still-available-URL) comiccons.org, a site that Franklin set up. If you have another show you’d like to add, he urges you to contact him directly.
