Here's that spiel one more time,

What are pick-up artists really like?

Cartoonist David Blumenstein wanted to know. In signing up for a free seminar with International Pick-up artist(PUA) Instructor Julien Blanc, David found himself witness to one of the most successful anti-PUA campaigns launched by the feminist community, a campaign that rallied behind the catch-cry #takedownjulienblanc.

This playfully drawn true account of one evening introduces you to the people on both sides of the protest line.

David Blumenstein is an award-winning cartoonist who has drawn comics for Guardian Australia, Crikey, Junkee and Australian MAD Magazine. He and his cartoonist wife, Sarah, are co-founders of Squishface Studio, an open comic artists' studio in Brunswick, Victoria which you can visit most days of the week, and which holds events and classes for kids and adults.

SPX 2014 Debut: The Fuglies

The Fuglies:

"A pair of genetically enhanced girls go on a rampage of murder and cannabilistic mayhem while being chased by the authorities through a wilderness populated by savage genetic freaks & horrific mutations. "

Steve Carter and Antoinette Rydyr as the collective S.C.A.R. have produced some of the most powerful Horror and Sci-fi comics to come out of Australia. Drawing inspiration from the themes and art of 50's and 60's genre comics and then taking it up several notches, The Fuglies is the perfect example of Steve and Antoinette's modern blend of hardcore Horror and Sci-Fi.

The Fuglies will be available at SPX in September and elsewhere soon after.

Pick up 104 pages of full colour S.C.A.R. in the Savage Bitch collection available now from Te Pikitia Press Store.
