Check out the new web-comic! Follow it at webtoons – but don’t Google the title (some really “adult” stuff will pop up … clear your search history!)

And the Winner is …

30 Jan

A couple weeks ago we asked what you would like to see as the next 1134 web-comic. After going through the responses here on the website, on Facebook, and to our post on Instagram, well, it was nearly even.

Since both ideas (Shifty Elephant and Pussies of Tomorrow) seem to have some support, we will do both. One will be a web-comic that will start running here, at 1134 Comix, soon. The other will be made into a one-off print comic that will be scheduled for later this year / next spring. We haven’t yet decided which will be which, but that choice will be finalized soon.

In other news:

The Adventures of Blakbone and Other Short Stories has gone into the printing process. It might still be a couple more weeks to go over the proof and make any adjustments. We will be making an official announcement soon in regard to the release date.

Also, the long awaited update to our web-comic platform is still on the agenda. There’s a lot in the works here and we can’t wait to see it all through!

In the meantime, grab a copy of Gestalt from our online store!

What do you Think?

11 Jan

As we dot our Is and cross our Ts in preparation to send The Adventures of Blakbone and Other Stories to the printer, we’ve been brainstorming the next web-comic. We’ve come up with two ideas that we like. The working titles are, Pussies of Tomorrow and Shifty Elephant. This is were you come in.

What would you rather see become the next 1134 web-comic?

A) Pussies of Tomorrow

This web-comic would follow a group of spacefaring cats. They would go on adventures full of zaniness and enough cat themed jokes to make you puke.

Or,

B) Shifty Elephant

This web-comic would be a detective story featuring, you guessed it, a shifty elephant. It would follow (for the most part) a standard detective noir  story structure and would definitely make use of as many tropes as possible.

As we work on the next chapter of Blakbone (The Outer Space Adventures of Blakbone), we will be checking our responses to this poll here and on social media. We hope to have the next Blakbone story out by summer time; after which we plan to start the next web-comic series.

So, coming up at 1134 Comix:

  1. The Adventures of Blakbone and Other Stories (the official, final release date will be announced this month!)
  2. The Outer Space Adventures of Blakbone (Planning to release the full story in print by summer ’18)
  3. Either Shifty Elephant, or Pussies of Tomorrow (web-comic to start by Summer ’18

Note: Character designs are not final

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

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.

Making Books!

29 Jun

Hello everybody!

We’ve been super busy at 1134 Comix / Press making books–we love it! Bree has been hard at work making the most awesome handmade journals. I’ve begun the arduous process of creating a graphic novel while furiously drawing the remainder of the current Blakbone story arc (which will be collected into a TPB in the fall).

We’re really excited about all the things we’re doing with 1134 Press and 1134 Comix! And there’s so much more we have in the works that I didn’t mention above. You can help us keep this book making train on the tracks by visiting our Gofundme page. It’s a great way to get a copy of 1134 Press’s first book, Gestalt, and it’s the only way to get yourself written into the next story arc of the Blakbone web-comic (which will eventually be bound in print as well).

Thanks!

Here’s some art I’ve been working on for the graphic novel

You can see some upcoming Blakbone pages in there as well …

And here are just a few of those handmade journals mentioned above:

Look for these coming soon to our store, on Etsy, and wherever we’re able to set up a book selling table!

Thanks again everybody, and check back soon for more updates about 1134 Press and more of the ongoing Blakbone story
