VAULT SALE – Nathan Fox’s “The Lost Scenes” comics

TinyTown_CoverAround 2009, the Turner Classic Movies channel had an online comics series called “The Lost Scenes” that would accompany the movies they aired on TCM Underground. You know, they showed those campy old horror movies, cult classics, black comedies, etc. The comics were supposed to depict fictional scenes from the film found on the cutting room floor or made up off-camera antics. They had a whole series and Nathan Fox did several for them, as did Peter Bagge, Evan Dorkin and more.Blood-Freaks_Cover_1

For this Vault Sale, we are listing three complete Lost Scene comics from Nathan for the movies Mark of the Vampire, Tiny Town and Blood Freak. Each comic will be sold as a set containing the full comic (3 pages each) for one price. The pieces will be available until Friday, March 13th. Appropriate, no? Visit the OOSA Store to buy them before they’re gone!

The Year Behind/The Year Ahead

Dang! We did a lot this year. We brought Nathan Fox and Chris Visions on to the crew, we had a museum exhibit featuring all of the OOSA artists with over 50 pieces of art, released the kaBOOMbox Vol. 1 anthology with Brand New Nostalgia, opened the OOSA Print shop and started the monthly Guest Artist feature, went to some great shows, celebrated our 3rd anniversary, and overall, had a great year. Thanks to you all for sticking around and checking us out. Every purchase, word of support and interaction, whether online or in person at a show, is greatly appreciated.

So what’s in store for next year? Well, we’re going to continue featuring monthly Guest Artists in the print shop. So in addition to the great guests like Natalie Andrewson, Richie Pope and Jim Rugg we’ve featured in the past, our upcoming schedule is full of fantastic artists with Ron Wimberly, Heather Mahler, Conor Nolan, Tony Millionaire, Sail, Phil Noto, Brandon Graham, Tula Lotay and Aaron Conley lined up to take us through September of 2015. You can still get Eric Bonhomme’s print until the end of December, so don’t let it pass you by.

The OOSA artists will be firing on all cylinders next year, too, with everyone having books out from major publishers. Andrew MacLean will have his graphic novel ApocalyptiGirl published by Dark Horse in May, Alexis Ziritt will have his comic Space Riders published by Black Mask Studio with co-creator Fabian Rangel Jr. starting in March, Liz Suburbia will have her debut comic Sacred Heart published by Fantagraphics sometime in the Fall of 2015, Greg Ruth will have INDEH published by Hachette Books, Logan Faerber will be illustrating his first published comic with BOOM! Studios, Paul Maybury will have Valhalla Mad with Image, Toby Cypress will have his art book released, and Chris Visions, Nathan Fox and Ming Doyle will continue to knock out great comics as well. 2015 will definitely be a banner year for OOSA.

As for me, I’ll probably hang back a bit. I don’t have any plans to add any more artist to the collective. I think OOSA is in a good place right now, so I’m just going to let it do it’s thing. I’m mostly looking forward to seeing what the OOSA artists accomplish in the coming year and I hope you’ll continue to stick around to see what we’re up to.

November’s Featured Guest Artist: Jim Rugg

jim-rugg-street-angel-cover

I really respect Jim Rugg, so it’s a real treat that he’s doing a print for us as a featured Guest Artist in the OOSA Print Shop. In case you didn’t know, Jim Rugg makes comics, books, drawings, illustrations, and designs. His books and comics include Street Angel, Afrodisiac, the PLAIN Janes, Rambo 3.5, Notebook Drawings, and Supermag. He has exhibited drawings at iam8bit, Gallery1988, Mondo, and the Society of Illustrators. Honors include an Ignatz Award, The Pittsburgh Foundation’s Investing in Professional Artists grant, and AIGA’s 50 Books/50 Covers selection for best-designed books. He teaches classes in the MFA Visual Narrative program at the School of Visual Arts and co-hosts BoingBoing.net’s Tell Me Something I Don’t Know podcast. In short, Jim knows comics and illustration backwards and forwards AND he’s a super nice fella’ to boot.

Jim’s print for the Print Shop is a full color giclee print on 11 x 14 inch archival 265 gsm 100% cotton paper and will be a timed and numbered edition. What does all of that mean? Well, 1) the print will be super nice, and 2) the print edition will only be open during the month of November. After the month ends and the edition closes, the prints will be numbered based on how many were purchased.

The print will be revealed on November 1st when its made available for sale in the OOSA Store, but here is an initial concept sketch (below) to give you an idea of what Jim whipped up. Be sure to follow OOSA on Twitter, Tumblr or Facebook to get notified when the print goes live.
