HDE is proud to announce and debut:
THE VAGABONDS #5 by Josh Neufeld
[with Michael Keller, Adam Bessie, Martha Rosler, and Sari Wilson]
24-pages. Full color. $5
Josh Neufeld’s The Vagabonds #5 features a ten-year Hurricane Katrina anniversary update with the characters from A.D.: New Orleans After the Deluge. The story “Fare Game” (co-reported and co-written by Al Jazeera America’s Michael Keller) examines ride-sharing services like Uber and Lyft. This issue features two collaborations with writer Adam Bessie, who is bravely living with a cancer diagnosis. Both pieces explore the ways technology filters the experience of living with an illness. Other pieces in this issue include a rundown of the origins and meanings of emojis, a humorous take on steroids in Major League Baseball, the changing nature of Brooklyn, and a selection of one-page comics. Not bad for five bucks!
Gregory Benton will have two posters for sale: “Little Nemo in B+F Land” and “Pest Control,” both 18″x24″, $10 each.
Dean Haspiel will be promoting his upcoming digital comix series, THE RED HOOK, launching April 6th at LINE Webtoons. Please be sure to ask him all about it.
Benton’s SMOKE, the late Seth Kushner’s SCHMUCK (with various artists), and Haspiel’s BEEF WITH TOMATO, will be making their MoCCA debut.
