CURLS STUDIO IS COMING TO SPX THIS WEEKEND!

That’s right, the Curls Studio multimedia creator team of Carolyn Belefski and Joe Carabeo are returning to the biggest, independent, self publishing, creator owned, comic book convention in the country, the SMALL PRESS EXPO! This historic show is where the who’s who of the independent comic books creator world come together every year, and this year they are celebrating their 20th anniversary, and Curls Studio is super excited to be there armed with new work. And maybe a teaser of a teaser of a new book project that hasn’t been officially been announced yet. We always gotta have some sort of surprise. Check out a panel from the newest Black Magic Tales story from Magic Bullet #9 illustrated by Carolyn Belefski and written by Joe Carabeo, as well as the cover to Animal Chronicals #2. Both of which will be at SPX

I’m excited! I think this is the best Magic Bullet yet! And I’m not just saying that cause I have a Black Magic Tales story titled “The Old Gang” and is illustrated by the amazing cartoonist Carolyn Belefski and is the very first ever full colored Black Magic Tales story. It’s also the closing story to Magic Bullet #9. No, I’m not just saying that. I’m also saying its the biggest Magic Bullet to date. Carolyn Belefski put together another amazing issue.- Joe Carabeo
