Official Press Release
The Boston Comics Roundtable has returned with their latest collection of comics in Inbound 5: The Food Issue. This 176-page trade paperback is their biggest volume ever, featuring 26 brand new stories from dozens of contributors. (View book cover and samples at www.bostoncomicsroundtable.com/inbound-5.)
The best and the brightest comics creators from the greater Boston area explore our delectable and complex relationship with food. Where does it come from, and what are we willing to do to get it? From the mythological to the historical, the personal to the fantastical - the range of genres is matched by an equally broad range of graphic styles that exemplifies the fun and creativity of today's independent comics.
Inbound 5 follows on the heels of the Roundtable's extremely successful Inbound 4: A Comic Book History of Boston, which was praised as a "Standout Comic" by Boston Magazine. The Comics Journal described it as "a kaleidoscopic and quirky examination of history... [and] a formidable display of democratic representation that squares nicely with the organization's goals."
Inbound 5 makes a perfect gift for comics lovers, foodies, and anyone passionate about the culinary arts. It's available online at the Boston Comics Roundtable website and at many Boston-area comic shops and locally-owned bookstores, including Million Year Picnic, Harvard Book Store, New England Comics, Brookline Booksmith, Comicazi, Hub Comics, and Comicopia.
Contributors to Inbound 5 include: E.J. Barnes, Eric Boeker, Jerel Dye, Franklin Einspruch, Patrick Flaherty, Bob Flynn, Joel Christian Gill, Andrew Greenstone, Danny Gonzalez, Raul Gonzalez, Beth Hetland, Erik Heumiller, Allie Kleber, Braden D. Lamb, Cathy Leamy, Jackie Lee, Jesse Lonergan, Dan Mazur, Mar-T Moyer, Line O, David Ortega, Shelli Paroline, Adrian Rodriguez, Roho, Aya Rothwell, Katherine Roy, Adam Syzm, Laura Terry, Jason Viola, Rebecca Viola, Katherine Waddell, Ryan Wheeler, and Andy Wong.
