New Ling minis at Wizard World Philly

June 15th, 2009 by E.J. Barnes · No Comments

If you missed Tales of the Ling Master artist E. J. Barnes’s table at MoCCA ArtFest earlier this month, E. J. will be returning to Wizard World Philadelphia during Father’s Day weekend, 19–21 June, at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in downtown Philadelphia.  You can find her in Artists’ Alley all three days, starting midafternoon Friday (the show starts at 12 but due to transportation connections, E. J. will almost certainly not be there before 2pm.)

E. J. has two new Ling Master publications, collecting a total of 6 “Blaster” Al Ackerman stories, including reprints of 3 stories originally printed as one-shots, now with updated art.  The new, 28-page digest-sized minis, Blaster Al Ackerman’s Tales of the Ling Master #1 and Blaster Al Ackerman’s Tales of the Ling Master #2, which premièred at the 2009 MoCCA ArtFest, will be just a few of the items that are new since E. J.’s last visit to Wizard World Philly in 2007.

If you miss E. J. at the show, these comics and other goodies are now available on E. J.’s website at www.ejbarnes.com.  You can purchase them online using PayPal, or visit any of the fine comic and book shops that currently carry E. J.’s comics, which are distributed by Trees & Hills in New England, and Tony Shenton elsewhere in the USA.

Comics & Shop update - E.J. Barnes & Some Jams

June 8th, 2007 by Colin Tedford · 1 Comment

Two comics by E.J. Barnes are now available through Trees & Hills Comix Distro:

Tales Of The Ling Master Preview #1: The Bread-Doll Fancier and Tales Of The Ling Master Preview #3: The Squid Boys Of Terra Haute - both adaptations of the stories of “Blaster” Al Ackerman.

Trees & Hills will have a table (S32, upstairs) at the MoCCA Art Festival in NYC June 23-24 and E.J. Barnes will be there, too, selling comics from her own table!

E.J. also organizes the monthly Pioneer Valley Comic & Cartoon Schmooze in western MA (email art at ejbarnes dot com for more info) - you can see a small jam from last month’s Schmooze as well as a couple other jams that happened in western MA in the Comics section.
