September 13 & 14, 2014

I am extremely excited for this weekend at SPX, the biggest show to date for Youth in Decline! Jane and I are both coming out to work the show, and we’re lucky enough to share our table with my buddy Jillian Tamaki. We’re located at TABLE J5, next to Michael DeForge and the Study Group table.

At the 2014 show we are planning to debut the following books:

  • RAV 1ST COLLECTION by Mickey Zacchilli: RAV 1st collection will collect the first five issues of RAV, Mickey Zacchilli’s mysterious, hilarious, and romantic (!?) adventure comic + bonus materials.
  • Snackies by Nick Sumida: A collection of Nick Sumida’s daring and hilarious comic series, “Snackies” - including the first two minicomics and more than 20 pages of new strips! Two-color offset.
  • Frontier #5: Sam Alden: Our fifth issue of Frontier will feature a brand new comic from this rising cartoonist wunderkind. 36 pages, Risograph-printed.

TO NOTE: We only will have 50 advance copies of RAV 1ST COLLECTION and 100 advance copies of Snackies on hand, so please don’t dawdle if you’re excited about these books!  The rest arrive from overseas in the coming 1-2 weeks!

In addition, we’ll have copies of our previous titles, including Frontier #4: Ping Zhu, Frontier #3: Sascha Hommer, Frontier #2: Hellen Jo, and our science fiction short story collection, Love Songs for Monsters by Anthony Ha.

ALSO!~ We will be hosting signings on Saturday for all three of the debuts, so please come get your books signed by the artists:

Saturday, September 13:

  • 1pm - 2pm: Mickey Zacchilli
  • 3pm - 4pm: Sam Alden!
  • 5pm - 6pm: Nick Sumida!

See you guys at SPX!!!!!


The first reviewer has weighed in on our Fall 2014 books — RAV 1ST COLLECTION by Mickey Zacchilli was “eye-opening” and Snackies by Nick Sumida called “gripping” —!??


If you know me, then you know how life affirming it is to see a tiny baby hand clutching my book.  Yay, first review!

You can now read a 12 page preview of Snackies and PRE-ORDER a copy over at the Youth in Decline site.  The book will be debuting on September 13-14 at the Small Press Expo, and then shipping to stores and online orders at the end of September.

If you’re attending SPX this year, please stop by the Youth in Decline table and say hey!  Along with the Snackies collection, I’ll likely have a new print or sketch zine (or, maybe BOTH)


This has been a very exciting week over at Youth in Decline HQ!

We have just received proofs from our printer for "Snackies" by Nick Sumida! This is the hilarious debut collection of work by Nick Sumida, which features his self-published minis as well as a ton of new comics!

Lisa Hanawalt said, “Nick Sumida is a great humorist: silly, maudlin, a little psychotic!”

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!

Pretty stoked right now

Do you work primarily on tablet? I love your line work!


Thanks!  Since moving to LA in January, all of my work has been drawn on a Cintiq tablet (I have a 22HD model).  Prior to that, all of my work was drawn with a pentel brush pen and colored in photoshop. Both ways have their benefits!  

SNACKIES is off to the printers now, and here’s the cover. 88 pages, 2-color interiors, debuting at SPX from Youth In Decline!
