3. MoCCA debuts: Secret Acres releases I WILL BITE YOU by Joe Lambert

This one gets its own post because it might just be the book of the show:

Secret Acres especially pleased to finally release I Will Bite You! and Other Stories, the years-long delayed book debut of Joseph Lambert. We can say that the wait was entirely due to Joe’s ruthless perfectionism, the best proof of which is in the book you now have in hand. I Will Bite You! will be in stores this month, following its launch at the 2011 Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art Festival in New York City.

Jason Lutes, author of Berlin and Jar of Fools writes:

“This book will punch, kick and bite its way from your brain to your heart and back again, leaving you dazed and dumfounded in its wake.”

One of the Comics Reporter’s five most anticipated books of the year, I Will Bite You! includes the Best American Comics selection, “Turtle Keep it Steady,” and several new stories, presented in gorgeous two color and full color pages. An economy of line and sophisticated, unusual narrative mark the inimitable style of an artist many have been watching with interest.

As Jim Rugg, Ignatz Award winning and Glyph Award nominated co-creator of Afrodisiac and Street Angel says:
“I Will Bite You! and Other Stories signals the arrival of Joe Lambert’s whimsical, lively, beautiful and thoughtful voice to comics.”

Joseph Lambert is a graduate of the Center for Cartoon Studies. He lives in Vermont with his wife and dog. His comic “Turtle Keep it Steady!” was published in Houghton Mifflin’s The Best American Comics 2008, for which he also designed the endpapers. His illustrations have appeared in Business Week, Popular Mechanics, 7Days, The Comics Journal and many other publications. Look for more of Joesph’s work at submarinesubmarine.com.

“Kids” is an anthology of comics by some amazing people, all having to do in some way with children or childhood. We, the editors, (Jose-Luis and Melissa) have been thinking a lot about kids lately, and how we’re not kids anymore, and how maybe now we’re supposed to be grown-ups, so we decided to put this together.


Robyn Chapman

Editor and publisher Robyn Chapman is pleased to announce the debut of the new anthology This Isn’t Working: Comics About Ex-Boyfriends.  Six cartoonists share their personal stories about this sensitive subject.  Chapman has created a handsome, yet economical, showcase for their work. This Isn’t Working is the debut book from Chapman’s new minicomics publishing house, Paper Rocket.

Chapman selected 6 talented cartoonists to tackle this subject:

Cara Bean
Robyn Chapman
Caitlin Plovnick
Liz  Prince
Jen Vaughn
This Isn’t Working can be purchased for $3 at the MoCCA Festival. Look for this debut book at the AWP table (M6).
