Pussies of Tomorrow: The Conclusion (Last Page!)

17 Sep

PofT_Conclusion_pg_15_SMALL.jpg

Well, it’s a day late … but here it is! This post marks the end of the story for Pussies of Tomorrow, but it’s not the end-all-be-all. There is a high likelihood that this story will be re-released in some way in the future; it might be a print book, a digital download, or some other form. What ever we determine is the best way to have the entire story, in sequence, available for people to read with ease. We’ll post about that when the time comes.

In other news, News from the Crypt is still ongoing. It will continue as a web-comic, and if you’ve been following the posts here, you already know that we plan to produce more animated videos based on the News from the Crypt comic.

Aside from the web-comics, we will continue to post news and updates regarding to our other projects here as well. On that note, there will be a new book of fiction by Bryonna Jay released through 1134 Press in late spring. 2020–this is the main project for 1134 at the moment, and it will be a great book! In the meantime, follow 1134 Press on Instagram for cool handmade journaling videos, and on Etsy to purchase 1134 Press’s journals.

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.

1134 Press: Updates

20 Jun

Hello everybody,

As some of you might have heard, we’ve started a new site called 1134 Press! It is the home to our online store where you can get copies of our books. We’ve just added a new book and updated our listings, so you should go check it out!

http://www.1134press.com

Also, grab a copy of Gestalt today!

GestaltFrontCover

“Gestalt” is a collection of fiction that walks right up to the edge of reality. Between these covers are ten fictions, peppered with gritty, visceral art pages, that explore the nature of being. Halfway through the book you will find a short sequential art story, “Clawing at my Skin”; is it a dream, or is it a nightmare?

Check back here soon for more updates about 1134 Press, our growing inventory of books, and a call for submissions that will be coming shortly!
