sanveerbindra said: Any plans to release collections of Frontier and Thickness? The individual issues are impossible to find in my country and far too expensive to import. Trade collections are usually easier to find locally.

Thanks for the interest!  It can be a hassle to get US indie releases overseas, I wish there was a more cost-effective way!  I do ship anywhere worldwide and happy to bundle orders!  Just contact me via the site and we can talk about that: Youth in Decline: Contact Us.

I’m not planning to collect the Frontier issues together — I originally had considered it, as a “Yearbook” anthology like the Rookie approach? — but decided that the volumes don’t make a lot of sense together given the very different printing approaches and production.

That said, I AM planning a Thickness anthology (along with Michael DeForge, my co-editor) that will also have about 50 pages of new comics. We’re mulling now over releasing it this November or for early next Spring — is dependent on a few other projects.  I’ll be updating this site as soon as it is finalized!!  Thanks again

More exciting news from Youth in Decline HQ!

We also this week received proofs from our printer for "RAV 1ST COLLECTION" by Mickey ZacchilliThis is a massive 276 tome, collecting the first 5 issues of RAV.

"RAV is an action-adventure romance drone comic that has been likened to such epic works as Alice In Wonderland and Ulysses. 

Follow Juice, Sally, The Snake Prince, a mystery cat and other bizarre friends as they navigate an esoteric whirlwind of dorks, punks, passive-aggression, kisses, weird basements, and bad breakfast spots.”

The book debuts at Small Press Expo on September 13 in Bethesda, MD. It will be hitting shops and be available online through Youth in Decline soon after!

The book is 88 pages, softcover, and debuting at Small Press Expo on September 13 in Bethesda, MD. It will be hitting shops and be available online through Youth in Decline soon after!

"Babies, babies, babies! We are back after a week off and boy are we refreshed and ready to get into it with our incredible guest, artist and doll-face Nick Sumida!! He&#8217;s here to talk to us about the eroticism of 1990s movies which ties in very nicely with our exhaustive list of paraphilias!"
This was such a delightful interview, and Lisa and Nick give a sweet shout out to me, my wife, and our &#8220;coffee enema-themed wedding&#8221; LOL

Beautiful original pages from our friend (and Frontier logo designer), Jillian Tamaki! I had the pleasure of seeing her pencil some of these pages at a retreat in Fall 2012 <3

jilliantamaki:

I had to take some photos of some This One Summer original pages so I thought I’d share them here.

A little status update on the book: the book is available in FrenchItalian, and, soon, Spanish! And you can read the New York Times review here.

Thanks again so much to everyone who has come out to our events, including the recent signing in LA. It means a lot. <3
