The Boston Comics Roundtable, in conjunction with River Bird Comics, is pleased to announce the publication of Hellbound V: End of Comics. Aptly themed, this will be the final installment in a series of original horror comics anthologies from some of Boston’s most celebrated creators. No fear or phobia will be left unprovoked.
Debuting on October 4th at the fifth annual Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo (MICE), Hellbound V will also be available at select local comics shops and conventions. This limited edition, 9 by 5 inch, two-tone Risograph printed run, geared toward “Mature Readers”, will feature seven stories and two fold-out pages, boasting a roster of familiar names and new contributors, alike.
Hellbound series creator Roho will resume his role as designer and publisher. Stephen Cartisano, who has had a hand in every Hellbound release since the New England Art Award nominated Volume II: Box of Evil, returns as Editor. Returning contributors include Dan Mazur (Comics: A Global History), Ellen T. Crenshaw (Nobodies Volume II, Womanthology), Alison Burke and Tara Harris (A.R.R.O.), Patrick Flaherty, E.J. Barnes (Tales of the Ling, An Invitation to the World of Luisa Felix), and Clayton McCormack (Dead Meat, Heavy Metal Magazine). Joining them for the first time on this volume are Gary Bonesteel (Killer Ink Comics), Ben Doane (Subcultures), and Brenton Barnes (Bartkira, Mister Reusch’s Black and White Illustration Book).
The Hellbound series has received much critical acclaim, having grown “increasingly stylish in presentation,” according to Rob Clough of High-Low. Katy England, of The Maine Edge, deemed Volume IV: GULP! to be “well worth adding to any collection,” while Brigid Alverson of Robot 6 marveled at the “impressive craftsmanship” contained within its pages.
Featuring illustrations by Dan Moynihan (Nickelodeon Magazine, Heeby Jeeby Comix), and up and comer Jerel Dye (Little Nemo: Dream Another Dream, Pigs Might Fly), Hellbound V: End of Comics promises to end the series with a bang… and perhaps some whimpering, too.
Comic Art House takes New York Comic Con by storm! All artists will have original art for sale and prints! Most artists will be accepting commissions on site! You can find our very talented artists all in one place!

Gene Luen Yang appears at Bookshop Santa Cruz on Monday September 29, 2014 at 6:30 pm!
In the golden ago of comics in the 1940s, a legend was born: the Green Turtle. But this mysterious masked crusader was hiding something more than your run-of-the-mill secret identity—The Green Turtle was the first Asian American superhero. The original Green Turtle comic only had a short run, but now Gene Luen Yang has revived the character, creating an origin story for a forgotten hero.
Hank just wants to enjoy his quiet life running the family grocery store with his father, but his mother wants him to become a superhero, and to clean up their Chinatown neighborhood! With artwork by Sonny Liew, this dazzling, funny comics adventure for teens is a new spin on the long, rich tradition of American comics lore.
Gene Luen Yang is best known for his popular comic adaptation of Avatar: The Last Airbender; the graphic novel diptych Boxers & Saints, a narrative of China’s Boxer Rebellion; and graphic novel American Born Chinese, which is now in print in over ten languages and was a National Book Award finalist and winner of the Printz Award. American Born Chinese was celebrated as a unique presence in comic and graphic novels, a voice of Asian American youth struggling with fitting into America culture, a bold expression about Yang’s perspective on the Asian-American experience (especially for kids) and his understanding of his own ethnic heritage. Yang was also awarded the San Francisco Chronicle’s Best Book of the Year and The Chinese American Librarians Association Best Book Award.
He lives in Oakland, California. We’re pleased to welcome Yang for a reading, discussion, and signing.
