Greetings Dieselfunkateers! Things are moving in The House of Diesel. We illustrate and write our books, we print and manufacture our books, and we DISTRIBUTE. It’s quite interesting. We’ve learned that there is a small, yet vibrant community of comic book creators who handle virtually every aspect of production. Ranging from the numerous ‘Zine’, ‘micro press’ to ‘indie press’ operations. You can see many of these creators by conventions such as Small Press Expo, SOLcon/CXC and the upcoming Schomburg Black Comic Book Day. In fact, young hotshot zine operator, Kat Fajardo…Kat was also gracious enough to produce an awesome gallery image in Matty’s Rocket: Book One. Not allowing the younglings to have that market totally to themselves, we also dig the work of Jaime Crespo , a seasoned pro who does great work at Corn Tortilla Press.
What’s the DEAL? The deal is that technology is allowing creators to GET. STUFF. OUT.
Which leads us to promising things on the horizon. Part of the Dieselfunk operation was spawned in part by the parentage of Jason and Kemi Reeves of 133Art. That group does the full monty, full color comics and graphic novels. When Dieselfunk grows up, it wants to be like 133art. We’ve seen it with our own eyes folks.
Founded and run by the The illustrious Imani Lateef, this cat has fostered a robust digital marketplace for all things Black, of Color, Female, Super, Scifi, Horror, and Comics. Most recently, Peep Game Comix has started a venture in conjunction with…yes, those folks again…133art, to start a Print-On-Demand operation. Their flagship book is FRIKIN David Crownson’s ‘Harriet Tubman: Demonslayer!’Thank goodness, Imani has graciously allowed Dieselfunk Studios to continue to offer Matty’s Rocket as part of the Peepgame Comix operation. You can get Matty’s Rocket issues 1, 2 and 3. Plus the NEW graphic novel collection ‘Matty’s Rocket: Book One. In both digital download and PRINT. So go to Peepgamecomix or Dieselfunk. It all comes back to US anyway!:-)
Quick Note: The DIESELFUNK SHOW Resumes in just a few Days!!!!
