Time for another tantalizing peek at one of the stories from the upcoming SubCultures anthology: this time by the great Cara Bean (another brilliant cartoonist from the - ahem - Boston area).  Cara has crafted a comic to remind us that we humans are not the only species with culture — and subcultures!

"We worry about finishing all the coursework with which we’ve foolishly burdened ourselves, we obsess over where this clearly ill-advised relationship is headed. Even I, no fan of college kids even when I was one, and never the sort of student who could complain about a B, found myself…

"The notions that our relationships can head somewhere, that our lives can be controlled, and that we can attain perfection, are encouraged by our society’s consumerist attitude. After working towards and attaining fictional goals like grades, graduations, and quotas, we hope to gain all…

Jason and Cara's prose-and-comics impressions of Providence’s inaugural RIPExpo, where a punk spirit flourished in stately establishment digs (and where they found more great comics than Po the cat knows what to do with).

In her first diary comic chronicling her coming year at the Sequential Artists Workshop in Florida, Cara Bean sits down for a wide-ranging interview with a passing squirrel.

I communicate with you through squirrels. Let’s keep in touch.

cash-money-cartoons said: Thanks Cara for the Gremlins Movie Incident ! It's really well done ! I'll pass it on to P-Dogz next time I see her.. -Geoff

That is wonderful. My interaction with you was one of my highlights at RIPE. Thank you

My next zine, coming this fall, is a little anthology called PRATFALLa new collection of stories by some of my favorite alt-cartoonists recalling true painful and/or humiliating accidents & injuries they have suffered. These two previews capture those fateful moments before the pratfall happens - when you think to yourself, with dreadful clarity: “oh SHIT.” First we have young John Porcellino on his skateboard and then there’s young Cara Bean on a ski lift. Both stories remind me well of why I have (A) never skateboarded and (B) never gone skiing. (Then again I do ride my bike in busy traffic so whaddo I know.) Ordering information coming soon!

More previews and more artists here, here and here

Aww.
