I’m doing a *— GIVEAWAY —* since my bastard book child Ojitos Borrosos is turning 2 years old! This book compiles the “best of” my short comics from 2008 to 2012, and was nominated in 2012 for the Ignatz awards “Best Artist” and “Best Collection”. According to Edie Fake it’s “A simply killer collection of Inés Estrada’s amazing comics - charmed and pervy and smart and totally unpredictable….I can’t say enough good things about these except that you will love them.”

I’m picking one person who will receive a free copy of the book + 2 of my sticker packs. The only rule is to reblog this whole post once! If you cut out the text or reblog more than once you’re out. I’ll announce the winner on April 18.
Thank you and good luck!

Lots of goodies going up daily on the fantastic Instagram of our favorite French publisher, Le Lezard Noir

Man, these Le Lezard Noir French editions of Maruo and Hanawa are mind blowingly beautiful. Why can’t someone release an English edition of these books like this?

Hey Oilers,
See this lovely machine? That is Oily’s new (used) Risograph. I had to plunk down a hefty chunk of change to get it. Last week, the old risograph malfunctioned and it was beyond my know-how to get it back up and running (if anyone wants a GR 2700 for parts get at me). So luckily there was a machine for sale a couple hours away and I jumped on it. Why am I annoying you with this? Well, this really ate into Oily’s budget for the rest of the year so, so I have decided to keep the subscription offer open until the end of July. Since I have had to push back printing since my old machine broke, I have more time to let more people in. I didn’t hit my goal of 200 subscribers this time out. Currently, we have about 150. If I can get 50 more, I would be a happy camper. Maybe I didn’t push this subscription campaign as hard as I could or maybe you all are just sick of Oily. I don’t know. So yeah, if you want to subscribe to some cool comic books, now is the time. Get 5 comics in the mail every month. Quality shit. Some names I of cartoonists, I have coming down the pike are: Leslie Stein, Sam Gaskin, Melissa Mendes, me, Michel Fiffe (interview zine), Ben Urkowitz, Darryl Seitchik, and more.
Thanks for reading. I never take your support for granted.
