Comics Sherpa is a separate cartoon galaxy within the GoComics universe, where close to 200 independent cartoonists post their work. (To visit, click SHERPA on the green bar at the top of this page). In the thirteen years of Sherpa’s existence so far, over 1,000 different features have appeared. As the site’s Aide de Sherpa, I’ve heard from numerous creators over the past few months about books they have self-published, so today we are offering a Sherpa Book Giveaway of the six titles below. All except Dysconnected are signed by their creator. To enter, leave a comment on this blog post with your FIRST and LAST name. Limit one entry per person. This giveaway is limited to residents of the U.S. and Canada. The contest will end on Tuesday, September 20th, at 5 p.m., EST. The winners will be randomly selected, and announced on this blog that evening. BATCH REJECTION: New Century Modern by Garey Mckee This single-panel feature mimics the classic style of early to mid-20th century magazine cartoons while exploring the mundane, everyday foibles of 21st century technology. View strip here. 6 x 9, 152 pages, pb, b&w, Ten Spot Publishing. Available via Amazon. DYSCONNECTED: Isolated By Our Mobile Devices by Anton Scamvougeras In the future, the happiest, most content and satisfied people will be those of us who learn to best manage our relationships with our technology. This hefty and elegant collection, which combines Dysconnected art with quotes on the subject, was described by a Vancouver book critic thus: “Easily one of the best books of the year.” View strip here. 11 x 8 1/2, 160 pages, pb, b&w, AJKS Publishing. Available via Amazon. Website. GREEN PIECES: Green From the Pond Up by Drew Aquilina This eco-comic explores wetland life through the denizens of one particular pond. Iggy the claustrophobic turtle and his friends -- Radic, an annoying dragonfly; Cabby, an omnipotent techno-bullfrog; and Roc, a rogue raccoon -- have adventures that entertain, while the strip manages to convey a lot of interesting information about the lives of plants and animals. View strip here. 8 ½ x 11, 197 pages, pb, color throughout. Green Pieces Studio. Available via Amazon. Green Pieces Cartoon Studio. NEVER SETTLE FOR THE STATUS QUO: A Magnificatz Collection by Steve Ogden Magnificatz is about a longsuffering ingenious guy and his two precocious cat advisers. Steve Ogden’s beautiful art is well featured in this collection, which also includes a fascinating illustrated account of how the strip evolved over 25 years -- from Croker’s Gorge, to Silas & Max, to Doctor Magnifico, and, finally, to Magnificatz. Formerly on Sherpa, the strip now appears on GoComics. View strip here. 8x8, 126 pages, pb, color throughout, Wishtales Publishing. Available at http://wishtales.bigcartel.com/ Website. NO ORDINARY LIFE: Why is the Coffee Always Gone? by Justin Baglio “Simple. Fun. Amusing. Don’t overthink it!” suggests this full-color single panel's creator. “Just sit back with your favorite beverage and enjoy.” His takes on modern life have appeared on Sherpa for four years....
