    About Dan Mazur:
    Mazur wears many hats in the Boston comics community. He’s the creative force behind Ninth Art Press, the “unofficial publishing arm” of the Boston Comics Roundtable, co-director of M.I.C.E.

    Boston Comics Roundtable Debuts Spellbound Anthology at Boston Comic Con 2015

    BCR-spellbound-frontcover_newPress Release:

    Boston Comics Roundtable (BCR)’s new anthology Spellbound, the latest installment in their active tradition of collected work, presents an anthology that delves into city life through the lens of urban fantasy. This collection contains over a dozen stories by Boston-area, independent comic creators that challenge the way we view the world by adding a dash of the supernatural. Visually diverse, these tales reveal the magic in both the extraordinary and the mundane, putting a spin on reality.

    The volume includes the work of Dan Mazur, author of Comics: A Global History, Colonial Comics editor and contributor J.L. Bell, and Emmy Award winning graphic designer Anthony Lathrop, to name but a few. With narratives exploring a host of topics from the struggle of wielding new powers, to the dark rites of Patriots fans, to the larger-than-life musings of inanimate objects, and finally getting to the bottom of where that Boston accent comes from, among others, the novel takes our city and pulls it through the looking glass to examine what it means to be a Bostonian. Officially debuting on July 31 at Boston Comic Con, Spellbound will also be available at select local comics shops and conventions. In addition, a book launch party will be taking place on July 18 at the Boston Comics Workspace located at 561 Windsor Street, Studio 306, Somerville, Mass. RSVP for the launch party on Facebook!

Clem, Patrick Flaherty, Mehitabel Glenhaber, Levon Gyulkhasyan, Paul Hanna, Youngjin Hur, Patrick Jordan, Anthony Lathrop, Dan Mazur, Greg Moutafis, John Quirk, Roho, Catalina Rufin, and Adam Tutkus.

    Final Hellbound Volume Debuts at MICE 2014

    hbvPress Release:

    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 FlahertyE.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.

    MA – Comics: A Global History Signing

    cghDan Mazur and Alexander Danner appear at Harvard Book Store on Friday June 13, 2014 at 7:00 PM!

    Press Release:

    Harvard Book Store welcomes co-founder of the Boston Comics Roundtable DAN MAZUR and ALEXANDER DANNER, teacher of the course “Writing the Graphic Novel” at Emerson College, for a discussion of their book Comics: A Global History, 1968 to the Present.

    Comics, manga, bandes dessinées, fumetti, tebeo, historietas… no matter the name, they have been a powerful medium across four continents for decades. This is the history of comics around the world from the late 1960s to the dawn of the 21st century.

    Comics is a richly illustrated narrative of extraordinary scope. Examples from all over the world include everything from Crumb and Kirby to RAW; from Metal Hurlant to Marjane Satrapi to nouvelle manga; from both the American mainstream and underground to the evolving and influential British scene. The images here are bright and colorful, dark and brooding, arresting and pleasant, all at the same time. An unprecedented collection includes around 260 expertly chosen illustrations, many reproduced in full-page format for more sophisticated analysis.

    The authors, two uniquely positioned and knowledgeable authorities, are the first to write a broadly comprehensive history of this most accessible, democratic, and occasionally subversive modern popular art form, displaying an intimate familiarity with schools and styles, writers, artists, and companies across countries and generations. In showing us both post-apocalyptic dreamscapes and portraits of the everyday, Comics looks at this thirty-plus year period through a very unique lens.
