Eel Mansions Update No. 24578

In case you weren't able to pick up Eel Mansions #3 when it debuted at this year's monstrous SPX Festival, you can now order it from Uncivilized Books, or demand your local store get with the times and start stocking it. Also, Uncivilized Books is now offering a subscription in case you can't keep up.

The last of the crazy festival deadline oriented issues of Eel Mansions (#4) will drop in November for the Brooklyn Comics Arts Fest. Things start to pick up now that I'm done with all the setup stuff. Below is a page from #4. Breakfast- Janet style!

Eel Mansions No.2 Now Available For Pre-order (MEOW!)

AH! Finally!
Here's the official Uncivilized Books press release:

Eel Mansions 2 by Derek Van Gieson is coming! Here are the details:

Issue number two features the further noir happenings of semi-retired demonic cultist Armistead Fowler, Tales of Abstraction House, The Negative Orphans, Janet and Frank, Doomin’, Record Store Guys, Secret Agent Types, and the Lizard Lords.

PLUS we take things into 2nd gear with Buffalo Ruffs, The Death of Jazz, Anthony Hopkins vs. Dennis Hopper, Post Punk, Nub Nub’s Bar and Grill, along with a few random head scratchers.

The 2nd issue is even thicker than the first! If you have the first issue already (and if you don’t there’s a nice deal on the site if you would like to order both) you know how chock full of stuff it was (and if you don’t believe us, check out this intense roundtable sparked by the first issue!). We will be debuting at the Autoptic Festival in August. In the meantime, you can pre-order the book from us here.

A Vintage Janet Moment

Found this while digging around for some material for an upcoming Paper Darts Magazine comics exhibition. This won't be in it, but I found it appropriate to sneak in here. Pre-order info for Eel Mansions No.2 coming soon.....

Eel Mansions No. 2 Update & Rough Publishing Schedule

Aye, it was a cruel and nasty winter that just passed us by here in Minneapolis, BUT it is over and the plants are in the ground and the rent still manages to get paid, so yeah, everything is dandy. Last night I finished drawing another 38 page issue of Eel Mansions and now just comes the editing, scanning, and dot tones part to get it ready for the Autopic Fest in August. I know, that's way the hell in the future but the good news is that I'll have my groove going and a shorter issue No. 3 will be ready in time for SPX in September. And then No. 4 in November. So yes, lots of drawing between now and then plus a major exhibition of new art next spring/early summer. This is a BUSY summer for sure. I dig. Just gotta get that cd player component workin' again. Don't worry, the vinyl still gets a workout. Music is very important in the creation phase. Anyways, here's an uncorrected Doomin' page from No. 2. Enjoy.
