Revival House Press kindly sent Meathaus over a copy of one of their recent titles, Ted May’s collection of short pieces called Men’s Feelings. Publisher Dave Nuss included a letter that reads:
“Here’s the latest fun one from Revival House Press: Men’s Feelings by Ted May. It’s chock full of brilliant gags and vignettes, all crafted in that top-notch Ted May-style. Some are meant to tickle your funny bone while others were conceived to elicit a degree of poignance. It’s a bold work (i.m.h.o.) Enjoy!
Thanks Dave and Ted! This collection is fun to read. There are a lot of toilets and dumps and base, body-related issues in here. “Men’s Feelings” indeed. Check out Ted’s blog over here. Preview a color version of one of the comics in the book where it was published first over on Vice.
I’ll just get over that this is marketing that is totally nailing me straight in my “demo” and enjoy the fact that rad comics dudes and ladies are being paid to produce new work. It appears that Johnny Ryan is responsible for curating this crew, and it is hosted by Vice Magazine. It’s certainly not your average marketing campaign for your average big studio “children’s movie”. Usually you’re gonna want to keep children away from reading Vice magazine. See the blog here as they reveal new comics every few days and post interviews with the artists.
A list of the artists involved: Ben Jones, Benjamin Marra, Dan Zettwoch, Esther Pearl Watson, Frédéric Fleury, Hellen Jo, Jordan Crane, Josh Simmons, La Merde, Lisa Hanawalt, Mark Todd, Martin Ontiveros, Matt Furie, Matthew Thurber, Nick Gazin, Ray Sohn, Ron Rege Jr, Sakabashira, Sammy Harkham, Shintaro Kago, Skinner, Ted May, Tony Millionaire, Vanessa Davis.
UPDATE: Well they went and blew their wild load all at once and here is a PDF version of the insert that is being printed in VICE Magazine right here with all the artwork in it, checkitout.
