And that’s a wrap! Back in the USA and traveling back home with our leftover inventory after VanCAF. Thanks everyone who came out to see our table. It’ll probably take me a few days to catch up on work after I get home, so if you’re waiting for a reply on anything I’d like to preemptively offer my apologies, and also my thanks for your patience! We introduced a lot of people to our books and sold some super rare out of print stuff, plus I even got to work with zhuchka (one of our editors and translators) in person for the first time! And I got to see a bunch of other online arts people in person, some for the first time, so I think it was all around a great festival and I’m grateful for the opportunity to exhibit even in spite of some of the surprise roadblocks that popped up along the way.
Our actual table is set up!! Note: Glaeolia 2 is SOLD OUT now. Also, toshoneko ‘s comics (we found a couple copies!) are nearly gone!!
Hallo~ We will be at Table B6 in the VanCAF Exhibition Hall this weekend! Please stop by — emuh & zhuchka will be running the table. I should have about 10-30 copies of the books in the second picture available for purchase, *maybe* a few others also , and hoping to sell out on everything! 🧊 Please remember to bring - and wear - an *N95 mask for the event as a covid precaution. We are also bringing some art prints and postcards (pictures 3,4,5, and 6) so please stop by to say hello and pick up some awesome new pieces! ✨ #glacierbaybooks #vancaf #indiecomics #manga #art
We will be debuting these two sublime new prints from ayumu_arisaka at #vancaf in Vancouver this weekend! We’ll also have copies of several of our comics at our table, which will be run by emuh and zhuchka. Stop by and pick up a book (and a print!) and say hi~ Masks are strongly recommended for this event due to the surge in covid, so please mask up. #indiecomics #manga #vancaf2022 #smallpresscomics #art
ANNOUNCEMENT📯📯📯 PREORDER ／ Red Riding Hoods Wolf Apprentice: Final Testament to the Moon volume 1 by Sayaka Mogi A5 | approx 100 pages | french flaps with foil spot covers | monochrome + color pages There used to be many werewolves, but now only few remain.. here is detailed the tragic fate of werewolf twins Skoll and Hati in this, the final testament to the moon. “I want to hurry and grow up…” The first volume of Sayaka Mogi’s ongoing series, this book introduces the werewolf twins who play an integral role in the story of the wolfkin tribe. This work both stands alone as an independent story and functions as a continuation of the Kodansha digital series Red Riding Hood’s Wolf Apprentice and the overarching world of Humans, Beastkin, and Hunters. Sayaka Mogi continually refines their line with the spinning of this new epic yarn of fantasy / adventure / drama. Note: To be clear, this is an independent story to the original Kodansha Red Riding Hood’s Wolf Apprentice series, and to our previous release of a side story set in this same world, False Stars. While this series will continue the overall story from RRHWA, it is a standalone title and no prior knowledge is required. The work is written such that new readers can enjoy it entirely without the context of the original short series Red Riding Hood’s Wolf Apprentice. Also Recommended: False Stars by Sayaka Mogi (published by Glacier Bay Books, 2021).
