Crust Dog #4 is available nowwww
Picking up right where #3 left off, this issue finds Ray and Chelsea fleeing town in a boxcar and beginning to retrace the steps that led them to where they are now. Meanwhile, a remorseful cop deals with his post-raid angst and Handlebar gets a taste of feral life. 40 pages, $3!
This could be you, if you come to the Pioneer Valley Zine Fest/Ladyfest tomorrow in Amherst, MA, where I’ll have TWO brand new things to sell you: CRUST DOG #4, hot off the press and not available anywhere else at the moment, and the incredible first issue of AS YOU WERE, featuring me and a gaggle of punk comics luminaries. See ya there…?
Another rough sketch from Crust Dog #4…coming along!
More pencils from Crust Dog #4, which’ll be debuting at Pioneer Valley Zine Fest!
Some pencils from Crust Dog #4. Trains!
A page from Crust Dog #4, in the works.
(Yes, I posted this the other day but had to fix something on it so here it is again!)
Happy new year everybody! Thanks to everybody who ordered comics, stopped by and chatted at my table at a show, wrote me an email, or reblogged something I posted up here. I think you’re going to like what I’ve got cooking for 2013. Here’s a little sketch of the two stars of the upcoming Crust Dog #4 (who first showed up last issue)…look for more soon! Thanks again!
Crust Dog #3 is ready to go. 40 pages of what I think is my best comic-making ever. It’s kind of a departure from the first two issues…but I am so proud and excited for people to read it.
This issue introduces two new characters, and returns to two old ones…it also goes deeper with the themes that the first two issues brought up in a not-so-serious way: the complexities of wildness and domesticity, isolation and love. The punk rock satire is gone…the focus is shifting to the world of underground activism and the complicated lives of the people involved. In some ways this issue is table-setting for the next few, but I think it stands on its own too. I’m really happy where this whole project is going…it feels like it’s getting a life of its own.
If you want one, paypal $4 to anthonywsorge at gmail.com …or you can come see me on the road next month: Richmond Zine Fest, Philly Zine Fest, and Paint & Pixel in Northampton, MA.
We are beyond stoked to be carrying Crust Dog #2 in our catalog! In the first issue of Anthony Sorge’s killer comic, a crusty punk dude stumbles his way through life without much regard to his faithful pup, Handlebar. The end is a massive Sixth Sense-ian surprise and well-worth picking up a copy…
I love Microcosm. I could ramble about this forever but I’ll leave it at that. I love everything those folks are about, and I’m so proud that they are such big fans of my humble little comic. Buy stuff from them. Lots of stuff.
Now that work has started up again, production at Crust Dog HQ has slowed to a near-halt…I’m lucky if I can pencil one or two pages a day. Today was pretty awesome, though: I woke up at normal work-time, and managed to bang out five pages by mid-morning, leaving the rest of the day to hang out and relax.
Pencilling is the most time-consuming part of comics-making for me. Since my drawing skills aren’t quite where I’d like them to be, I often find myself spending a half hour or forty-five minutes trying to make a hand come close to being passably OK, or figuring out exactly how a dog’s back legs bend in a certain pose. Now that I’m getting toward the end, I find myself rushing a bit though…this page was done pretty quickly, as you might be able to tell. Luckily, since my pencils do most of the heavy lifting, inking goes by fairly quickly, so I’m optimistic I can still get #3 done for Richmond Zine Fest on October 6. This is page 26…ten more pages of roughs to go, and then it’s home stretch time!
