We’re very grateful to be a part of Lumpen Magazine‘s 2015 all-comics issue. The theme of the issue is “Radio” to commemorate WLPN Lumpen Radio’s launch to 105.5 FM in Chicago (www.lumpenradio.com). WLPN is a volunteer-run community radio station based in the Bridgeport neighborhood on the south side of Chicago. Logan and Edmar even give me a bit of airtime on their waves with The Butter Hours – a two-hour late-night music mix my good friend, Eric Streichert, and I do every first and third Tuesday of the month 10pm-12am CST (@TheButterHours). These are some really tuned-in community-minded cats running this weirdo media empire, and we’re really digging getting involved. You can order copies of the most current and back issues at www.lumpenmagazine.org.
The first published review of Esoteric Dialogue #1 has been posted on Comics Anonymous! G-Man’s write-up delves into the themes of the book as he sees them, and he gives an insightful overview of the story at hand. I gotta admit – you don’t always know how people will interpret a story like ED#1, but even if just a few people take away the kind of impression G-Man did, I’ll be a happy author. Read the article here.
From the review:
“Writer Scott Bufis & artist Matthew Salazar create a comic with a familiar style as the first few pages have a real R.Crumb/American Splendor feel to it and it tells a fairly important & unique story…..at least for a comic book. It centres around trying to reveal the truth about the world we live in and uses the comic book medium as a limitless choice to tell us exactly that.”
