Hellbound Editors Make Books!

Joel Christian Gill’s Strange Fruit, Volume 1: Uncelebrated Narratives from Black History was released - to much acclaim - on June 3rd. Gill is currently touring book stores, radio stations, and online television shows promoting his recent release, which chronicles nine peoples’ tales of obscure, but important triumphs in the civil rights struggle. If you have yet to catch Gill at an appearance - at which he discusses his research, process, and the lives of characters featured within - you can find him at an event near you here. Joel got started Hellbound back in 2010 with the now sold out Hellbound I.

  • There’s also been buzz about Jesse Lonergan’s All Star, since its debut at the Society of Illustrators MoCCA Festival this past April.  Lonergan’s coming of age tale of a high school baseball star, set in 1990’s Vermont, is about so much more than baseball, offering valuable and universal insights into the trials and tribulations that pave the road to adulthood. Back on 2011 Jesse spearheaded the amazing Hellbound II: Box Full of Evil.

  • Jerel Dye, along with a veritable who’s who of cartooning, will pay to tribute to the legacy of Winsor McCay in upcoming and exciting Locust Moon Press anthology, Little Nemo: Dream Another Dream. Set to release in fall of 2014, the anthology will be comprised of original works inspired by McCay’s highly celebrated Little Nemo in Slumberland strip, which ran from October 1905 to December 1926. You can get in on the action and score some very cool swag by contributing to the ongoing Kickstarter campaign here. With Kimball Anderson Jerel kept evil in check with Hellbound III: Darkness.

  • And co-founder of the Boston Comics Roundtable and Hellbound I, contributor Dan Mazur and Publisher of Hellbound II (The Regular Edition) in collaboration with Alexander Danner, have put together a crash course in comics! Comics: A Global History, 1968 to the Present, is just that, a comprehensive chronicle of the evolution of the comics medium that traverses five decades and the world over. Expertly assembling a menagerie of samples spanning the myriad of comics genres and sub-genres, Mazur and Danner reconcile the most popular and the most esoteric works into a broader context. Released in June, in English, as well as Spanish and Portuguese, this book might very well introduce even an expert to a new favorite!
