Now Thru December 12: Gaiman Collectibles Giveaway with Purchases $10 and Up

Gaiman Goodies Giveaway

November Purchases Rewarded With Gaiman Rarities

From now through December 12th (shipping in time for Christmas in the US), or until supplies are exhausted (so don’t wait):



* Any SpiderBaby Store purchase of $10 or more is graced with a complimentary copy of the rare Neil Gaiman 1999 collectible Gods & Tulips!

This August 1999 saddle-stitched comics-format booklet sports a lovely color cover by Michael William Kaluta; its publisher (Westhampton House) originally priced it at $3.00/$4.40 Canada, but it’s yours for FREE with every SpiderBaby order of $10 or more.

Gods & Tulips features two essays and the transcription of a speech by Neil Gaiman: “Good Comics And Why You Should Sell Them,” “On Signings” (with illustrations by Chester Brown), and Neil‘s famous PRO/Con speech “Writing” (illustrations by Rembrandt van Rijn).

It’s a lovely, essential Gaiman archival publication, and we hope you’ll enjoy it.

___

* Any SpiderBaby Store purchase of $25 or more is rewarded with a complimentary copy of the rare 1991 Neil Gaiman & Michael Zulli collectible Sweeney Todd—the long-sought-after, hard-to-find Taboo 6 preorder Penny Dreadful!

Given the size (6″ x 9″) and format of the Penny Dreadful, this means we can ship your free copy at no extra cost in any single item or combination order. This includes any product from the store—anything—including the prints, too, since I can safely, without damaging either the print or the Penny Dreadful, carefully roll the Dreadful up into the poster tube.

and please do alert all Neil Gaiman and Michael Zulli fans about this special Holiday shopping season offer!

**PLEASE NOTE for orders outside the US: If you opt for the cheapest shipping option, I am NOT responsible for losses in the mail and that WILL delay foreign arrivals to weeks, if not a month or more, after it leaves the US. International Flat Rate Priority Mail is the most secure & timely option!**

Here’s just a sample—a partial page, mind you—of what’s inside the Taboo Sweeney Todd Penny Dreadful:

If you order $50 or more in SpiderBaby Store purchases, you receive both collectibles, FREE.

There’s no need to do anything, save place your order.

Any order of $10 or more instantly receives Gods & Tulips; any order of $25 or more is packaged with a copy of the Sweeney Todd Penny Dreadful.

Any order of $50 or more is immediately packaged with both rare Gaiman collectibles.

It’s that simple.

But once they’re gone, they’re gone. I found a limited, perfect-condition backstock of both of these publications in the SpiderBaby Archives—but they’ll be gone soon!

As always, thanks for your patronage, interest, and (via your purchases) support. As I dive into renewed work on Tyrant® in 2012 and 2013, the Spiderbaby Store will help fund my ongoing work on that project… and for that, my undying thanks.

Wampum Physics is Here to be Heard!

Tune Into Wampum Physics

First CD from my son Daniel Bissette & his pal Alex Hiam Now On Sale!

Alex Hiam, at left; Daniel Bissette, at right; Wampum Physics cover photograph ©2011 Ezra Distler.

Wampum Physics (2012) is Daniel Bissette and Alex Hiam, “born and raised gents from the land of Brattleboro, VT” and this is their first album—and (exclusively from the SpiderBaby Store) it comes with a lyrics sheet and Daniel Bissette‘s signed 8-page minicomic Counterfeit Comics (2010)!

Please note: The audiocassette and the CD have identical contents.

Wampum Physics (2012) is the first album from Daniel Bissette and Alex Hiam, featuring 11 tracks and sold & shipped (exclusively from the SpiderBaby Store) with a lyric sheet and Daniel‘s hand-manufactured Counterfeit Comics (2010), hand-signed by Daniel.


* What’s Daniel’s comix work like?

I’ve posted some preview art (the cover, an illo, and the opening four panels of “Big Fan”) above, at left, and below.

Counterfeit Comics is a black-and-white eight-pager (5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″) Daniel created during the summer of 2010, when he was really getting into Mike McMillan‘s underground comix work (Terminal Comics, 1971, etc.).

It features illustrations, the one-pagers “Alibis” and “Joke,” and the two-page strip “Big Fan.”

(Note from proud poppa Bissette: I’ve been a big fan of McMillan‘s comix since I first laid eyes on one of his Yellow Dog strips back when I was still in high school. I love McMillan, and I sure love Dan‘s comix, too!)

* What’s the music like?

The original label (Feeding Tube Records) identified Wampum Physics as “Electronic” genre, “Abstract, Synth-pop” style, to which I say, “if you say so.”

It’s unlike anything I’ve savored in a long time, and there’s a few tracks I just love and play over and over again—sign of a good album, in my book.

The album was recorded in Brattleboro, VT and Grafton, VT in the spring and summer of 2011. All songs are by Daniel and Alex, save for their cover of “Gypsy” by Fleetwood Mac. Jeremy Latch also plays on the album and co-wrote “Linda’s Redlight District,” which was also co-authored by Sam Phillips, who also plays on “Bolivia”; and Zach Phillips plays on “I Drew a Picture of Me.” Also note that Maia Bissette sings on “MBTA” (see below).

Here’s the Wampum Physics video for “Linda’s Redlight District” (2011)…

Also, Daniel‘s sister (my daughter) Maia Rose Bissette sings on one cut in the album, and she posted that tune as a sample online;

 “Wampum Physics is the collaboration of my brother, Daniel Bissette, together with his dear friend and fellow musician Alex. This album pushes the boundaries of contemporary underground music with poetic humor and sincere exploration. Because the duo works with various contributing musicians as well as on their own, each song is a unique experience. My brother asked me to record vocals on this track. I think it sounds pretty swell. 😉 …”

* PS: If you’d rather just own the original limited audiocassette edition of Wampum Physics, and forget about the cool comic-combo pack with the bonus free lyric sheet,

We won’t be offended, honest.

* PPS: For more of Daniel‘s comix and zine work,

* PPPS: Alex is also, as Daniel puts it, “.. tech savvy and working with micro controllers and writing code. He attends marlboro college and has a job building machines that help new and old technology communicate on the space station.”

Learn Your A-B-Cs with “An Alphabet of Zombies” by Father-Son Team Stephen R. and Daniel Bissette & Oily Comics Creator Chuck Forsman!

An Alphabet of Zombies - Print-Stephen R. Bissette, Daniel Bissette, and Charles Forsman
An Alphabet of Zombies – Print

Brand-New For Halloween 2012!

Continuing our line of all-new full-color prints, we offer “An Alphabet of Zombies™” for zombie-lovers, zombie-haters, and just-plain-zombies everywhere.

This is a unique print designed in the fashion of 20th Century elementary school educational “learn the alphabet” wall charts, intended to be read aloud for optimum amusement. Or it can just lay there on your wall, quietly, awaiting the unwary wandering eye to happen upon it…

This full-color limited-edition print (only 200 available) is the first print collaboration of the father-and-son team of Stephen R. Bissette and Daniel Bissette, with outstanding digital production and eye-popping color by Charles Forsman, renowned creator of Snake Oil, The End of the Fucking World, and more, including the phenomenal mini-comics distribution collective.

The print has been signed in this limited first edition by all three creators—Stephen, Daniel, & Chuck—and it makes a rare and wonderful frame-ready wall adornment—and you can get it now, while supplies last,

or you can place your order with the Oily Comics collective (and order their other great prints and/or comics while you do so)

 

Either means of ordering means you’re supporting the creators with your purchase; choose your zombie poison, and enjoy the undead life!

Don’t miss this glorious new edition, revised, improved, and in full-color—don’t dawdle, supplies are very limited!

Cobalt-60™ by Vaughn Bodé, Mark Bodé, and Larry Todd; Limited Quantities!

SpiderBaby Warehouse Find!

A very limited quantity of fine-to-mint quality copies of the long out-of-print, definitive Cobalt-60™ collected edition turned up, and I’m offering them for sale until they’re out of stock.

This is the original 1984 trade paperback edition (72 pages) from Donning/Starblaze/Whitford Press, which Mark Bodé estimates sold 25,000 copies in its day. It contains the complete Vaughn Bodé black-and-white classic “Cobalt-60,” which Vaughn originally published in Shangri L’ Affairs #73 (June, 1968) and in Witzend #7 (October, 1968); I first read it in his later 1970s underground comix reprint.

This edition also features the initial installment of the full-color sequel by Mark Bodé and Larry Todd, who also collaborated on the painted cover art. Mark and Larry continued and completed the adventure in the 1990s for Tundra Publishing Ltd.—I do not have copies of that series to offer.

All in all, this is a rare and worthwhile addition to any graphic novel collection—and you can get it now, while supplies last,

 Here’s a peek at the opening pages, just to whet your appetite. NOTE: the shot-from-original-art reprint pages in the 1984 volume do not sport the gray zipatone shading (the following pages are scanned from Witzend #7):



Cobalt-60™ and ©1968, 2012 Vaughn Bodé, Barbara Bodé, and Mark Bodé; reprinted for preview, archival, and educational purposes only.

A few additional tidbits to share:

* If Cobalt-60™ looks oddly familiar, it’s in part because Ralph Bakshi‘s animated feature Wizards (1977) essentially ripped-off the look (but not the character) for the film and its world-famous one-sheet and promo illustration by William Stout.

* For more info on Cobalt-60™, check out the following:

  • The official Vaughn Bodé, Barbara Bodé, and Mark Bodé archival and licensing website and pages, managed and updated by my friend Mark, including a full publishing and licensing history of the character.
  • The Wikipedia Cobalt-60™ page, offering a proper introduction to the comic, character, and his legacy.
  • The latest on the proposed movie adaptation, most recently cited by director Zack Snyder as one of his future projects.
  • Whatever happens, now is the time to snap up an affordable copy of this gem. Don’t dawdle, supplies are very limited! One to a customer, please.

    More on Tom De Haven and Freaks’ Amour:

    A mysterious explosion erupts in a blighted patch of urban New Jersey; subsequently, a vast mutation of multiple species occurs, including the sterilization of normal human beings, the transformation of goldfish eggs into a potent hallucinagenic, and emergence of an erratic, unexpected freak population that is quickly segregated to Freaktown. In a world in which the Normals can no longer enjoy sex—only the freaks can, scraping out livings starring in traveling stage sex shows—freak fraternal twins Charles (aka Grinner) and his brother Alan (aka Flourface) seek fame, fortune, love, and survival in a brutal new world.

    —this incredible novel has had a lasting cultural impact despite its fringe publishing history, spawning unauthorized adaptations like Stephen Sayadian akaRinse Dream“‘s XXX cult feature Café Flesh (1982),

    Well, here’s a new dose of Freaks’ Amour, fresh from the SpiderBaby Store!
