Here are some preview pages from the upcoming "LOUD COMIX #4" by Jamie Vayda (available for pre-order NOW at Birdcage Bottom Books!)

This fourth installment of autobiographical & fictional stories penned by various (mostly Southern) punk rock musicians, stand-up comedians, tattoo artists & other assorted riff-raff features tales by Jack Grisham (T.S.O.L.), Sonny Joe Harlan (Murder Junkies), Joel Rivers (Before I Hang), Alan King (Hellstomper), Gary Wrong (Wizzard Sleeve), Frankie Nowhere (Eastside Suicides), Erika Lane (The Stovebolts) and Jeff Clayton (ANTiSEEN)!

These tales of debauchery are then transformed into comics by the sure hand of Jamie Vayda (The Stovebolts). Comparisons have been made to William Faulkner on a bender, Flannery O’Connor, Tennessee Williams on meth, Carson McCullers and underground cartoonists like Johnny Ryan & Peter Bagge.

Liz Prince’s “I Swallowed The Key To My Heart #2”

Continuing the story that began in issue 1, “I Swallowed the Key to My Heart #2” finds Liz forging new relationships while severely damaging the one(s) she already has. How will Liz tell Craig about Paul? I mean, he can’t get upset because they have an understanding… right? For “mature audiences only”, which is to say that I don’t want to get sued by your mom if you’re still in high school and aren’t allowed to read things with sexual content.

The answers to these age-old questions, and more, can be found within the pages of what will be the first of a series of comics about heartache and bad decisions.

Hazel Newlevant’s “People of Coloring Book”

Who are these people, and what are they famous for? (If you don’t know, ask your parents or teachers.) Now you can make them any color you want! People of Coloring Book is a sincere joke, spoofing the well-intentioned yet hopelessly misguided children’s books of yore and the collective awkwardness of our “colorblind” society. Its covert aim is to make you think about the role race plays in identity, but the answers are left for you to color in.

8.5 x 11″, 16 pages. $6. 
Stapled. Color cover with b&w interior.
