Comic Foundry Party a Success!
The new issue isn’t on stands until next week, but we still had a lot of fun last night! There was a fantastic turnout last night at the Comic Foundry release party and we easily ran out of the 100 comp copies we brought for the guests. I want to thank everyone who came out last night, including our friends at Barnes and Noble, The Beat, The CBLDF, CMJ Magazine, Complex Magazine, Comixology.com, Condenast, The Daily Crosshatch, DC Comics, In Style Magazine, iVillage, Men’s Health Magazine, Mens.style.com, Neilalien.com, The NY Times, Occasional Superheroine, Publisher’s Weekly Rocketship, TV Guide, US Weekly, Virgin Comics, Wizard Magazine, Zuda. Also in attendance were creators Fred Chao, Nikki Cook, David Gallaher, Dan Goldman, Andy MacDonald, Ben McCool, Yuko Shimizu, Ben Trinh and plenty of other incredibly awesome people that I can’t quite remember right now.
Also, a photo from the party is the Photo of the Day in Publisher’s Weekly Newsletter. Thanks for the support everyone! We got a great response and the most common thing I heard all evening was, “Hey, this looks like a real magazine!” Here are some photos from the night — hopefully I can get some captions up soon. Enjoy! And thanks again for coming!Party, Blog | 2 Comments »

Comic Foundry Issue 2 Pushed Back One Week
Due to an unfortunate printing mishap, Comic Foundry is getting pushed back one week from March 19th to March 26th. I know you’re all very disappointed (I know I am), but fear not — the good news is that we’ll be having another party in conjunction with the new issue release. We’ll have the full details next week, but New Yorkers should save Thursday, March 27th on their iphones. There will be drinks, games and giveaways.Posted by Tim Leong on March 13th, 2008 filed in Party, Blog |

Comic Artists at American Illustration + Photography Party
Last night was the annual American Illustration and American Photography party and it was just as fun as years past. Food, booze, dancing, networking, not to mention two walls filled with award-winning photographs and illustrations (two of which I art-directed, thank you very much). There were also several comic artists there — those rare few who make the crossover between editorial illustrator and comic artist — including James Jean, Koren Shadmi, Nathan Fox and Ward Sutton.Posted by Tim Leong on November 9th, 2007 filed in Magazines, Party, Blog |
James mentioned a few interesting tidbits:
1) That as much as he loves it, issue 6 will be his last cover of Gerard Way’s Umbrella Academy comic.
2) He just did a mural for the Prada store in Soho. Watch out Paul Pope and your Diesel prints! You’re not the only comic artist that can do clothing stores.

Comics Events in NYC
9/8 BRIAN WOOD, MF GRIMM AND RON WIMBERLY AT ROCKETSHIPPosted by Tim Leong on September 5th, 2007 filed in Party, Blog |
Saturday, September 8th, at 8 pm, BRIAN WOOD will be signing the highly anticipated DMZ volume III, and musician/writer PERCY CAREY (aka M.F. GRIMM) will be signing his debut graphic memoir SENTENCES, along with artist RON WIMBERLY!
DMZ kicks ass, obviously, and if you haven’t picked up Sentences, you should. While you’re at it go listen to Grimm’s last album, American Hunger. It’s three discs of great lyrics and ill beats.
Party Was a Success!
(Photo swiped from Calvin Reid and Publisher’s Weekly)
Thanks for all of you that came out. And if you didn’t, you missed a helluva time. It was definitely one for the record books. All of our 50 gift bags were gone within the first hour and people just kept on coming in.
We had guests from DC Comics, Men’s Health magazine, In Style magazine, TV Guide, Entertainment Weekly, The New York Times, T: The New York Times Style Magazine, Complex magazine, Midtown Comics, CondeNast, XXL magazine, iStyle magazine, Wizard magazine, Publisher’s Weekly, DNR news, the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund and tons of other cool places.
We had writers, artists, editors, readers, bloggers — I’m not going to try and call out specific people because 1) there’s too many and 2) I’ll definitely forget someone. Needless to say, the part was a definite hit and I appreciate everyone coming out.
And of course - a big, big round of applause for Laura Hudson, who organized the soiree and bought me a quesadilla. Thanks!Posted by Tim Leong on August 30th, 2007 filed in Party, Blog |
