So I figured I'd make an official post about this. Snake Oil has been nominated in 3(!?) categories for the 2008 Ignatz Awards.  They are Promising New Talent, Outstanding Series,  and Outstanding Comic.  The ceremony happens saturday night at the Small Press Expo in Bethesda, MD.  I will be at the show tabling with my talented mates: Alex Kim(Wall City, Xeric), Sean Ford(Only Skin), and half of Joe Lambert(Turtle Keep it Steady).  We'll be right next to our friends at One Percent Press(as usual) at table G1.  We are pretty close to the main entrance, which is awesome!  I will have Snake Oil 1 and 2 for sale as well as a new mini(i hope)  I'll probably have some prints too.  Of course, we'll have copies of our anthology SUNDAYS 2 and a snazzy screenprinted bag if you buy one.

Remember kitty kats!  You can buy Snake Oil at the webstore on your right or in the real world at the following fine establishments:  Jim Hanley's Universe, Forbidden Planet, Chicago Comics, Quimby's, Comic Relief, Atomic Books, Heroes Are Hard To Find.

If you are a retailer or you would like your shop to carry Snake Oil Comics then please contact Tony Shenton for Wholesale:

Oh and my friend/housemate/fellow cartooner, Colleen Frakes, drew me this awesome fan art for my birthday.  Check it!
