Somebody must have tricked me into thinking comics was a good career choice cause I’m back with another disgusting, crude, and deprived round of everybody’s favorite fuck-ups and retards. That’s right guys and gals, its Ugly People number 2! Now I know you must be thinking to yourself, “Why on earth would I ever spend my hard earned money on that piece of shit comic, when I could be spending it on video games and ramen noodles?” Well the answer is very clear: I WANT YOUR MONEY! Seriously man, making comics isn’t cheap. I’ve got to pay for materials, the copying, the staples, and the envelopes to mail this shit out. So how about you give me a freaking chance and spend the money it took you half an hour to earn on something I spent months making!
I guess maybe I should talk about the content or something. Well let’s see. Big Daddy Bacon is in it. There some crap about him being broke and having to work as a bounty hunter to pay off his debt. Really the best part of that story is the beginning where there’s a naked girl. Then there’s a Jerkface story called 4 months, but Jerkface isn’t really in it. It’s more about a comic book page and a to-do-list yelling about if they have genitals, or the best way to draw people being punched. Oh and then there is this thing at the end where I tried to be clever and do a cooking show style comic where you make everything in a coffee machine. So like I was saying: GIVE ME YOUR MONEY!

I only have 12 copies of Ugly People number one left. Rather than try and push to sell them all I’m just going to give the last ones away. So if you haven’t gotten a copy yet just email your home address at itszackempire@gmail.com and I’ll send one out to you. I might be nice and throw something extra in there for you, but there are no grantees.
And hey, don’t forget I’ve got another comic and some original art for sale. Do me a solid and buy some of it so I can buy some goddamn food!

Sparkplug Comics [11 Sep 2011|12:23pm]

mardoucomics
Dylan Williams, the artist and publisher behind Sparkplug Comics, was an amazing supporter of mini-comics. He died this weekend after a struggle with cancer aged 39. Any support you could give by supporting Sparkplug Comics or any of the ongoing auctions of comic art currently ongoing would really help. This is so sad. Personally I discovered so many amazing comics artists through Dylan including meeting my husband whose first book was published by Sparkplug. The tribute on the Comics Reporter is here and this is the link to Sparkplug's store.

comics for sale! [21 Jul 2011|02:01pm]

zack_empire
hey check it out i've got two awesome for sale!

Photobucket

the first is ugly people number one, the first issue of my ongoing series! It’s a humor book, and the humor is very low brow. That is just the kind of sense of humor i have. It features the debates of some of my regular characters such as Jerkface, who is featured in three stories. Each one has him dealing with his own short comings and lack of self-control. Then there is Big Daddy Bacon, a weight lifting bouncer at a strip club, who looks just like, you guessed it, bacon! He finds himself dealing with some female troubles. Lastly there is Pizza, who deals out his own special brand of justice against the Pleasure Pizza cooperate headquarters. It is 32 pages for three dollars and one dollars for shipping.

Photobucket

Because you demanded it, or I wanted to do it, whatever the case maybe, Jerkface gets featured in his own one-shot comic! That’s right people, your favorite ass obsessed neurotic would be comic artist is spot lighted in his own series! And man oh man is he put through the ringer in this one! He’s got some serious hours to put in at the old drawing board, if he can just stop playing video games, and with himself! Lloyd Rivers makes his first appearance and it’s a dozy! When he and Jerkface hit the town the only thing Lloyd has in mind is senseless violence! It all goes well until they have a run it with the one and only Big Daddy Bacon! Last, but not least, Jerkface decides that the only way to get some work done is with help of a to-do list! But when Jerkface blows the to-do list off it comes after him hard! Can our hero defeat the ultimate symbol of productivity, while doing nothing at the same time? You’ll have to read it to find out! Its 36 hilarious pages of ridiculous bad taste for only 3, that’s right, just 3 dollars! Don’t miss out, because you’ll be sorry!

if your intrested in buying them, or seeing more samples check out my blog at itszackempire.blogspot.com!

well i finally got everything worked out will paypal! it only took me bitching and complaining to the paypal hotline everyday, and yelling at every person who worked at the bank! but it was all worth it cause now you can buy my comic with just the touch of a button.

Photobucket








its 28 pages, with 24 pages of comics. it's legal digest size, which is the size i think all my comics will be. i work big so it's easier to make a book this size. i really feel like this book was a HUGE turing point for me, it terms of how i do comics, and what i draw comics about.

Photobucket

Photobucketout. this is the frist comic i've done that i feel really proud of. plus it's the best looking comic i've had printed. some of the other comics i've done where poorly printed, but this one looks super! oh it's 3.00 bucks, plus 1.00 dollar shipping. trust me it is so worth it!

I really enjoy writing journal comics, here is one that I wrote a while ago showing a Sunday in Glasgow. I'm still learning when it comes to setting out comics and such so any critique would be appreciated!
Anyone have any favourite journal comics out there?

Will the real Jess Fink please stand up? [18 Mar 2011|02:50pm]

losttoy
Jess Fink is an artist who got her start drawing mini-comic and web comics. Her comic "Chester 500" will be collected by Top Shelf in May. Most people know Jess Fink through her T-Shirt designs that are constantly being ripped off ...

Sickened by the fact that another person stealing and making money off of Jessica Fink's genius I started thinking. With the other companies stole her work, when they have gotten enough hate mail and Cease and Desist messages sent to them, they stop selling the rip-off shirts. This person on Esty gets a twisted kick out of it. While the shirts have been taken off by Esty staff, Tyneshia Buie is getting turned on by all the attention and promises more to come.

So what can a guy like me do to help? Report the shop to Esty like everybody else has already done? Find her home address and leave a dead fish on the porch? Start up yet another meme on livejournal so we can all show our support of Jess by making our own Fink-offs?

Sale at Black Light Diner distro! [14 Mar 2011|07:57pm]

themachinestops


I'm trying to downsize Black Light Diner distro in preparation for a move to a smaller apartment, so I am having a sale! For every four zines or other items ordered, get an additional zine (priced at $3.00 or less) free! Just put the name of the zine you want in the comments section of the checkout form. Don't worry about shipping. Sale runs until the end of March or until I remember to take this down.

I also noticed that Canadian readers were sometimes overpaying for postage, so there is now a cheaper Canada/Mexico shipping tier. Yay for finally figuring out Paypal shopping carts three years into running the distro. :)

Thanks for reading,
Erica

black light diner distro, february 2011 update [24 Feb 2011|10:24pm]

themachinestops
Hey, just a friendly notice about the new zines available at Black Light Diner distro!!



ROOTS OF HOPE #3 (Portland, OR)
Korinna's second Latin America travel zine starts off with a visually stunning cover. Seriously, my jaw dropped when I saw it: every issue comes with a different glossy photograph with hand-written titles. This fat, text-heavy zine chronicles Korinna's travels through Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru. A stop in Bogota finds her searching for a Colombian boyfriend, and ending up discussing plastic surgery with Australians (I didn't know this, but Cali, Colombia is the plastic surgery capital of the world). In Ecuador, she has a life-changing experience on a commune and befriends a Finnish girl who will become her traveling partner for much of the rest of the zine. Korinna also discusses the widespread use of cocaine in South America, and the ways in which imperialism fuel the drug culture there as much as here. Pictures of street art and cityscapes accompany and enhance the stories, giving them depth. An epic zine for anyone who is interested in Latin American politics, travel, or mature analyses of anarchism. $3.50, quarter sized, 82 pages.

more under cut!Collapse )

Also, I will be closing the distro to online orders after this summer. I don't really like the day to day work of coding a website, dealing with Paypal shopping carts, or any of the various other fiddly things that go into running a zine distro with an online store. I will continue to run the distro as a table-only venture. So if you don't live in the eastern US and want some zines from me, make sure to order!

Thanks for reading,
Erica
