A Little Not Your Style but there’s always hope
You seem to come highly recommended and I hope to have you represent my “handmade comic”, 10 Confessions & A Kiss.
I’m completely freelance and have been publishing comics for years. I have a slightly popular webcomic among other projects. However, I am seeking a slightly more traditional approach for 10 Confessions.
10 Confessions is a romantic comedy with some manga influences. It explores (and makes fun of) the main character’s quest to break a deadly curse with true love. I would gladly go into greater detail if you are interested.
I am best contacted by email.
I have a website: http://www.apocalypsewriters.com with links to my online an
Katrina, please contact me at my AOL address: shenton4sales. Tumblr mail gets low priority when I’m busy. -t.
I Taste Sound
I submitted links to my work last week, and imagine you see a lot of stuff come through, but one thing I wanted to mention that might be relevant, is that I have somewhat of a following. My webcomic itastesound.com gets about 2,000 hits a month, even though it’s been on hiatus since December and my Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/itastesounddotcom has 3,600 Likers. I think it’s a testament to the fact that my work resonates with people… I just need to get it in front of more of them.
As a reminder, here is a sampling of my books: http://www.flickr.com/photos/riley23/sets/72157633671582366/
Mike, I can barely answer all AOL mail, much less tumblr. Please contact me at my AOL address. Thanks. -Tony
Tony, any interested in selling these? Right now it is marked at 100 cents..I may mark it up to 200 cents. If so, I can just send some to you and you can place them and profit from them if they sell. Just to get a few into a cool NYC shop would be fun..
Send me your address again, please.
Greg, it’s best to contact me via my trusty AOL address. Thanks! Tony
Outlaw Efforts - graphic novel
Hi Tony, Ron Hill at JHU suggested I get in touch with you. JHU has agreed to carry my graphic novel, Outlaw Efforts, as well as Mission Comics and Art in SF. I am looking to add as many stores as possible. If you are interested in working with me please let me know. Thanks, Natalie Jacobson
Please contact me at my AOL address, thanks!
Hello my name is David McDonald. I am the creator of Plastic Robot a annual graphic novel, that I plan to release in February. I have already uploaded pages of the first story on tumblr and deviantart.
I would like to use your services in making this venture successful. Thank you for your time and patience.
Please get in touch with me via my AOL address, thanks!
Mr. Shenton,I was inquiring about consignment at JHU Comics in New York City recently and a gentleman (Nick, I believe) recommended I contact you. My name is C.Edwards and I am a cartoonist who has self-published 2 collections of my webcomic, “Abel Boddy” and will be releasing my 3rd book, a collection of my NSFW webcomic, “12-Inch Roommate” next month.
I am curious about your representation services and was hoping to get more detail as I plan on releasing a few more books over the next few years and would like to get them onto shop shelves.
Abel Boddy can be found here: www.abelboddy.com and it’s two collections, which I published last year, here: http://tinyurl.com/bjqn7k9.
I hope to hear from you.

Stumptown? Zinefest? NEW BOOKS?
Clients: I don’t know how many of you read facebook status posts anymore, BUT…
even though I am still struggling to promote and sell new MoCCA titles (and books that arrived previously and after… what was April anyway? Kill the Sales Rep with overwork month? Space out your releases better! Maybe there should be a central scheduling agency! Sheesh!) it seems that there are many of you with new books yet to come premiering at various other shows very soon. Please don’t forget to send me a copy and send the details/synopsis (or post to your web sites.)
This cover is for a Free Comic offered by Spark Plug Comic Books, Teenage Dinosaur, Jack Hayden (meathaus, snakebomb) and Floating World, called Master P’s Theater.
It will be sent out to coincide with Free Comic Book Day, and is available for postage costs alone. Order soon, and that would be media mail. Rates are a little higher than last year ($4 for 1-30, $10 for 100.) Miss whatever last day there is for media mail, and up to 50 will be $10.95 priority mail. Spark Plug will bill you.
Creators include:Tony Remple (cover), August Lipp (cover), interior stories by John Isaacson, Ryan Iverson, Alex Chiu, Jason JFish Fischer, Amriel Simpson, & Pat Keck
There is mature content. Don’t give this to kids.
Retailers who would like to order may contact my AOL address, shenton4sales. Please don’t order here, thanks. We also encourage you to order from Spark Plug and Jason JFish Fischer, who are my clients. Support alternative comics and their publishers!
John, are you recovered from the hurricane? Please send me an AOL note. -t
Bruce Simon gave me your name and suggested I show you these, as we’re seeking representation.
Two issues are currently in print and I’m almost done with the third. JGM Comics is planning to print a trade PB after four issues are finished. Diamond wouldn’t take them and we’re suffering from lack of exposure and distribution.
Here is a link to the book’s Facebook page.
Returning to comics
This has been answered via AOL and Mr. Noland has returned as a client. -Tony
I’m returning to publishing after a long sabbatical. You were always great getting me sales and I would love it if you’d rep me. Here is what I’m leading with. Both retail for 4.00
