Official Press Release
June 8th, 2004 (Amarillo, TX) — When established talents come together
with newcomers and unknowns, diversity is the name of the game. From tales
of unrequited love to comedy to science fiction and beyond, the 2004 issue
of the Cartoon Militia’s A UNITED FRONT anthology defines the word eclectic.
Scott Morse (SOULWIND, SOUTHPAW) brings us “Earl,” a bear whose adventures
will be appearing in a few other anthologies this year. Jim Mahfood (GRRL
SCOUTS, BAD IDEAS) comes at us with “Clumsy Assassin.” Steve Rolston
(POUNDED, QUEEN & COUNTRY) returns to the Militia with his first “Jack
Spade & Tony Two-Fist” strip in four years. Lindsay Satterlee and TEM team
up to illustrate S. Steven Struble’s “The Li’l Depressed Boy,” which makes
its fourth appearance in the anthology.
A UNITED FRONT 2004 features other stories by Jose Garibaldi (JINGLE BELLE:
DASH AWAY ALL, TEEN HEAVEN), Dave Crosland (HEAVEN LLC, BAD IDEAS), Debbie,
TEM, Corey Barba, Shane Hillman, Lindsay Satterlee, Espen Jorgensen, Erik
Rose, Zach Trover, Jamie McKelvie, and Knut André Solberg.
All this and a cover by alternative comics veteran and normalman creator,
“I’m just floored by the stories we’ve got this year. The quality goes up
with every issue. We’ve stormed the gates and staked our flag. Our
forward offensive keeps marching on,” said “The General,” the Cartoon
Militia’s publisher S. Steven Struble.
