Just a quick post as we continue to cool down and wipe off the excess passion produced from our most successful convention yet.
I will attempt to post day by day reviews over the next week, but for now I just wanted to thank all of you, our loyal romantics, for helping to spread the love.
Special shout out to our new friend, loyal fan, and spiritual advisor...
"The Space Pope" for making another appearance at our table. He discovered our love last year and is eternally in our debt. He helped repay that debt by blessing this years fans after purchase. Gracias Padre.
The staff of HMLC will again be manhandling a table at the 2008 San Diego Comicon. We will be greeting our adoring and ravenous fans from Thursday morning to Sunday evening. Rumor has it that we will be breaking new records in excitement and passion levels, so stop by... unless you have something against love!
Buenos Noches Amigos! And check out how large our library is getting!
Just in time for the big show, the latest offering from our merry band of Artist, Hooligans and Lovers has Arrived!
We received our shipment this past weekend, and we are now officially available, and INTERNATIONALLY as well! No, mi amigos, not because you can purchase the book in the homeland of Mexico, but in choice spots across Europe too (courtesy of Diamond Comic Distributors).
Coming in at a lean 48 pages, the book looks awesome! And not just because of our beautifully painted cover by Paul Wee. Although Paul, you really kicked ass this time around. Interior story and art was provided by these passionate individuals:
Chris Bennett Rudi Berden "Angry Bob" Bowen Liz Climo Rodney Clouden Louie Del Carmen John & Leigh Fountain Shawn Murray Rafael Navarro Shannon O'Connor
Ira Sherak Ethan Spaulding Cesar Spinoza Anthony Vukojevich
Kudos and Kisses to you all.
Let me say that this issue has it all. New characters and some of your returning favorites featuring:
the return of Samurai Slug Paco Chupa & Goat Pacho Clokey and many more!
And if the usual assortment of stories wasn't enough, this edition contains a bonus feature. For all you sleepwalking fans who need your fix, a brand new SONAMBULO story by our own Rafael Navarro! The only Sonambulo story to be published this year. Wow! How can you say no to that?
So if you can't make it to the San Diego Comic Con next week (we will be located in the Small Press Area table N8) go to your local Comic Shop to grab a copy. If they don't already carry our "Passion on the Pages" demand that they order it for you.
Buenos Dias one and all, and welcome to Senor Ira's Inaugural Post! I will keep this short and sweet because it is early for me.
Now this post is VERY LATE considering the subject matter it contains, but I vowed to talk about this chapter in HMLC history so here it is.
Back in April, HMLC Lover and creator of "Sonambulo", Rafael Navarro took a pile of books to the 3rd Annual New York Comic Convention. He had a table and did some true representin' for Mexican Lovers and Artists everywhere.
Being that NY is my home town, Lady J and myself just happened to be visiting at the time of the convention, so we worked the table with Rafael on Sunday, April 20. This was a new crowd for us, but their hearts were just as big, as they opened them (and there wallets) and welcomed literary passion in. Below you shall find some snapshots of ourselves and new fans.
Even true patriots like Captain American go south of the border for some Love.
