56-PAGE .pdf BOOK
A group of diverse cartoonists have thrown their energy into telling timely, personal stories in a new benefit anthology, PANDEMIX: Quarantine Comics in the Age of ‘Rona.
The 56-page full-color digital anthology is curated by Emmy- and Ringo Award-winning cartoonist Dean Haspiel. PANDEMIX includes recent work by 19 artists and writers, most of whom live in New York, which has been particularly devastated by the coronavirus.
Comics include “Supply Chain Superhero,” an insightful portrait by Josh Neufeld (A.D.: New Orleans After the Deluge); “Skin Hunger,” an exploration of the loss of touch by Kristen Radtke (Imagine Wanting Only This); the pop culture-infused “Iterations of the Apocalypse” by writer Jeffrey Burandt and artist Christa Cassano (Ghetto Klown); “We Are All Doomed,” an unsettling elevator tale illustrated by George O’Connor (the Olympians series); and “The Currency of Community,” a poignant story featuring Dean Haspiel’s award-winning Brooklyn superhero, The Red Hook.
Other contributors include Owen Brozman, J.J. Colagrande, Marguerite Dabaie, Jen Ferguson, N. Steven Harris, Ellen Lindner, Whitney Matheson, Morgan Pielli, Dave Proch, Joan Reilly, Frank Reynoso, and Peter Rostovsky.
Edited by Dean Haspiel and Whitney Matheson, the anthology features stunning cover art by Peter Rostovsky and a Star Wars-inspired back cover by Mike Cavallaro (Nico Bravo).
