"Dash Shaw, it’s fair to say, is something of a genius." –Chris Ware
Praise for Shaw’s previous book
“New School is about art, about the art that’s in the book itself…There’s stuff going on at other levels, the intuitive, the level of the unconscious, the subconscious I guess you could say…This book is just fascinating…[A] masterful, gorgeous and defiantly odd work that demands close attention—and richly rewards it.” –NPR’s “Best Books of 2013”

I’m extremely excited to share the cover of Frontier #5: Sam Alden!
This is the latest issue of our ongoing monograph series, and features a brand-new 36 page comic by our friend Sam Alden, a supremely talented cartoonist and storyteller in the midst of a remarkable and prolific year.
Sam’s issue will be printed on Risograph in two colors, and debuts next month at Small Press Expo on September 13, 2014. As with all issues of Frontier, subscribers will be receiving theirs in the mail (along with a little surprise again this time!).
More details on the book and pre-ordering options will be added in the coming weeks to the Frontier #5: Sam Alden listing on the Youth in Decline site.
You can now pre-order Lapsos at Gatosaurio (shipping late September). This hard cover compilation book will be published by C’est Bon Kultur (Sweden) and will be debuting at the Helsinki Comics Festival. Includes the original series (now in english!) plus over 40 pages of new content! Interiors will be printed blue and neon red, with 10 full colour inserts.
Lapsos is a psychedelic, science fiction epic starring a couple of friends who encounter themselves messed up in between Mexico City and other dimensions. Their unexpected adventures help them discover that somehow, everything in this universe is connected, …But how does that even work?
Some nice words about Lapsos:
“Estrada’s art has a wild exterior to it, but I’ve always been struck by the strong storytelling and humane characters that are the anchor of her art.” —Austin English, editor of Domino Books
"Estrada couples a hallucinogenic story structure with goofball humor and some of the most satisfying new linework in comics." —Edie Fake, creator of Gaylord Phoenix
