moronicabbage @ : The first issue of my mini comic, Crabdance issue 1: 'Loss in 2 dimensions', is out now!
If you would like a copy, just send a stamped, self-addressed envelope and £1.50 to: Crabdance, 40 Greenway, Crewe, Cheshire, ENGLAND, CW1 4JN.
Make the envelope A5 if you don't want your comic bending.
If anyone is in the Manchester area soon, I reccommend you go into Travelling man and buy a copy! It's on the counter, you can't miss it.
It's a short b/w tale of heartbreak, fans of Jeffrey brown, Craig Thompson, David b, Jason might be interested.

fodor @ : FREE DOCUMENTARY TONIGHT
non-comic related... but i thought i should post it anyways.
FREE TONIGHT (Wed Nov 30th) at GVSU at 7:30pm the documentary 'Dear Francis' will be screened in the Kirkhof Center (215/216) to take part of HIV/AIDS Awareness week.
This is a 63 minute film that I helped with the production of in Swaziland, Africa. I hope some of you can make it!
visit dearfrancis.org to view the trailer.
dvds will also be for sale and the a good portion of the dvd profits will go to help build 6 foster homes in Swaziland. or if you have your own idea about where else it can be screened let me know... we can set something up. it's been accepted into different festivals around the country so come one come all tonight.
Dear Francis puts a face to the AIDS pandemic as it chronicles the personal stories of two strangers and the Swazis they befriend. After the UN officially declared the small African kingdom of Swaziland to be the world's most HIV-infected nation, Lance and Kelly, two Texas college students with high ideals, great hopes, and a bit of naiveté, embark on a most unconventional AIDS prevention program. Developing relationships with their students, they discover that the causes of this plague are much more disturbing and complex than they could have ever imagined. Through this unique story and interviews with Swaziland's leading experts, the film highlights the hope of a nation's future against seemingly insurmountable odds... one life at a time.

mandapandarawks @ : Crit O RAMA
Check this guy out ya'll:
He's coming to GVSU and the UICA for Crit O Rama on March 23-25 (I'm pretty sure those are the dates. Don't quote me on it though.) I'm supposed to be one of the art students who hangs out with him and shows him around town when he's not critting or doing any talks, and since he's a comic artists, I figured that it might be cool to get SAS involved . . . I'll talk about it more tomorrow at the meeting. Lemme know if you guys got any ideas and stuff. I just think it's cool that we have the opportunity to meet a real life comic man.

profmetal @ : SAS 2 news and things
I mailed Troma entertainment an envelope with a letter, some sample art, and Book Book 1 today. The letter of course asks Lloyd Kaufman to come to GVSU. Plus I talked to Underground Film Organization who support us. Plus, we'll have some proffesor and we'll have WCKS' support as well. The program we hope will include a presentation on Troma films and independent art in general, perhaps show a Troma film in the theater area and then do a Q and A session. Otherwise, if we can't show a Troma film in the Kirkhof theater, Lloyd probably will do a presentation with Q and A as he has done at other book stores and universities.
In other news, Book Book 3 will come out soon. In two weeks, we want SAS 2 members to submit a drawing the size of a 3x5 note card to add to a collage for a silk screened t shirt. We will then have a silk screening party at my appartment, GVA Lake 6 and print them for members in the group and a few extras to try to sell at the Feb 10 and Feb 11 bake sale. At that bake sale we will have Book Book 3 to sell (plus 1 and 2) and a few t shirts to see if people will buy them. Also feel free to present and sell your individual art and other stuff at the bake sale. We should try to so we can print and get money for comic cons in Detroit and Chicago. Also, we probably will have a couple other movie nights and on April 23 (I think) we will have 24 comic making day.

profmetal @ : Lloyd Kaufman at GVSU?
Thanks to everyone who came yesterday Jan.15 to my and Zach's appartment for the wonderful Sequential Art Society event of watching every Planet of the Apes movie. It started at about 2:30 and ended at about 11:30. Brilliant! After a trip to the coffee shop, Zach, Joseph and I watched The Toxic Avenger Part II! Speaking of wich...
If you were at the last club meeting, you know that I suggested we try to contact Lloyd Kaufman, Troma Films president and creator of The Toxic Avenger, to come to GVSU to do a lecture on independent art and films. All we need is to meet some of his demands (not many) and get some cash from Student Senate (not hard) and we have a pretty damn neat guest speaking at GVSU! So I wrote him this email. Tell me watcha think.
Dear Troma Entertainment,
My name is Edwin Oslan and I am a student at Grand Valley State University located west of Grand Rapids, MI in a small town called Allendale. I am an active member of the GVSU comic book club, known better as the Sequential Art Society and would like to have Lloyd Kaufman come to our school and do a presentation on independent art and movies. Our organization prints our own comic books featuring the art of various talented and not so talented artists such as myself. We are completely independent. We raise our own money for printing using bake sales and we use guerilla tactics such as stealing paper from the computer lab.
Our organization feels that our ideas reflect the same independent "for the art" beliefs that Lloyd Kaufman believes when he works at Troma and would love to have him come to our school and do a presentation on the history of Troma films, talk about his two books and answer questions. We also have support from my other student-run organization, WCKS radio and another student organization which I am not part of called UFO (Underground Film Organization).
Please send a list of prices and needs for Lloyd to come to our university and in response, we will mail a letter with our comic and some other samples from our group.
We need Lloyd to talk at GVSU!
