Inbound: The Boston Comics Roundtable Anthology

The Boston Comics Roundtable, of which I am a member, has just released the first issue of its new anthology, Inbound. We debuted at MoCCA, where it sold very well, and the first issue is now available for online purchase.

Lending Can Openers, my collaboration with Steve Harrison, appears in this issue, along with another short piece Steve and I did, which has not been published online. Plus, lots of other cool folks.


Boston Comics Roundtable releases its first anthology

BOSTON, MA (JUNE 10, 2008) – The Boston Comics Roundtable is pleased to announce the release of its premiere publication, Inbound, a Boston Comics Anthology (#1). The 60-page book, the first of many installments to come, contains seven comics from Boston artists. Inbound #1 retails for $7.95 and will be available in retail locations throughout the Boston area and online at

The Boston Comics Roundtable (BCR) is the only organization of its kind in Boston. It was created in 2006 to unite Boston-based comics creators in the spirit of camaraderie and professional development. With a strong grassroots sprit, the group focuses on promoting local talent and supporting local business. Growing steadily since its inception, the group now includes about 25 artists and writers, with roots in both print and web comics.

Inbound #1 contains several stories from a number of creative individuals and writer/ artist teams, including Alexander Danner (author of Character Design for Graphic Novels) and a beautiful full-color cover from Shelli Paroline. The contents includes:

  • Lending Can Openers – Alexander Danner (writer) and Steve Harrison (artist)
  • The Ragbox, Ch. 1 – Dave Kender (writer) and Mark Hamilton (artist)
  • After the Plague – Ryan Wheeler (writer) and Braden Lamb (artist)
  • Deconstruction – Hyun Supul (writer & artist)
  • Body Blues – Jaime Garmendia (writer) and Justin Mattarocchia (artist)
  • The Daytime Sky – Susan Chasen (writer) and Dan Mazur (artist)

The inaugural issue of Inbound marks the start of an exciting new chapter for the BCR. Three times per year, Inbound will be delivering the best of Boston to comics readers everywhere.

Fans should expect issue #2 and #3 in the late summer and fall of this year. Issue #1 of Inbound is available now.

The Boston Comics Roundtable is an independent organization of comics creators in the Greater Boston area. The group meets weekly for workshopping, teaching, and social gathering. Meetings are open to the public. Information regarding publications, artist galleries, and meetings can be found at
