It’s Pronounced Eleven-Thirty-Four: Who We Are

13 Aug

If you type 1134 in a calculator and turn it upside down, what does it spell?

1134 Press is an independent publisher and bookmaker based in Baltimore founded by G.J Sieck (a comic artist, writer, and metal head) and myself, Bryonna Jay (writer, book artist, and #carefreeblackgirl). We joined forces through our love for writing, books, and an affinity for outsider-hood, weirdness, and the strange.

We are nerds, skeptics, and we make free web-comics too! We also make handmade journals, available on Etsy and in our store.

Earlier this summer 2017 we published our first book, Gestalt by G.J. Sieck, a collection of short stories and sequential art. Give it a read, it’s a trip.

Here at 1134 Press we are coffee lovers, night owls, and…

We’ve been hard at work creating content and hand crafting products, and we want to take you all on for a ride as we continue to grow as a press and artists. Follow this blog for updates on what’s new with 1134 Press, bookmaking tutorials, calls for submissions, and other 1134 shenanigans.

1134 Press: Campaign

7 Jun

Good afternoon everybody,

Last month we launched our new site, 1134 Press. We have a lot of big plans for that project. With that in mind, and considering some financial realities, we’ve started a GoFundMe campaign as a way to jumpstart this project.

Please follow the link to help us out – we’re also offering some pretty great rewards for your donations!

Thanks!

It’s Been A Long Time

13 Apr

Hello,

It’s been a long time since the last comic has been posted to the site. Sorry about that. Blakbone will continue were it left off (at some point in the not too distant future). That said, there are some pretty big things in the works at 1134 Comix!

First, we’ve finally locked in our very own domain name. Now, we’re simply 1134comix.com–we’re on our way to the big leagues now!

Also in the works, is what will be our sister site. Here you will find all the goofy web-comics that have always lived on this site. The new site will be something altogether different. We will be focusing on print editions of fiction, graphic novels and comics (at some point), and we would love to publish some interesting poetry as well. We hope to publish work that fits with the essence of 1134 Comix. What we’re most excited about is a plan to publish a yearly anthology. More will be revealed about all of this over the next number of months.

1134 Comix will also be getting some help moving forward. Hello, also unpaid partner in online publishing. You will all be experiencing her contribution sometime this summer.

The last bit of news, for now, is that we will be releasing our very first, full length, book of fiction next month. This book features sequential art, mind bending flash fiction, hauntingly gritty art pages, and a number of short stories that walk right up to the edge of reality. Look out for Gestalt, coming in May!

So, stick around for an all new era of 1134 Comix!

1134 Comix

Sorry I missed yesterday’s Sunday Comic. Grad school has a way of consuming all of your time…
Instead of a comic, check out this drawing. It kind of goes with the fiction story posted last week.

Have a great week!
