I’m extremely excited to share the cover of Frontier #5: Sam Alden!
This is the latest issue of our ongoing monograph series, and features a brand-new 36 page comic by our friend Sam Alden, a supremely talented cartoonist and storyteller in the midst of a remarkable and prolific year.
Sam’s issue will be printed on Risograph in two colors, and debuts next month at Small Press Expo on September 13, 2014. As with all issues of Frontier, subscribers will be receiving theirs in the mail (along with a little surprise again this time!).
'Screentime June/July' is a collection of Sam Alden's monochrome pixel drawings. A departure from his full-color pixel work, Screentime immerses itself completely in the instinctive musicality of Sam's imagery and arrangements, evoking emotional landscapes that resemble everything from the best of golden age adventure gaming to the quiet pleasures of pop song sublimity. But never fear, there's a story here as well, hidden deep beneath the veneer; with a little prodding, clicking around, patience, much is revealed.
