July 5 – Blue Onion release party and art exhibit with Chris Cilla

Here it is, Chris Cilla’s long awaited follow-up to Labyrinthectomy/Luncheonette! Blue Onion chronicles our itinerant, titular hero as he traverses unique landscapes with his mind, meanwhile cultivating interesting specimens (chiefly, worms) for the sake of observation. All the while, intergalactic rock group, “Ghost Manor” forge ahead with their songwriting career in space. And a menacing alien lifeform descends upon earth and proceeds to wreak havoc, all in this fun, rollicking, rip-roarin’ yarn of a comic.

Join us for a release party on Thursday, July 5th with Chris Cilla, who will also have a selection of limited edition Sardine Can Press t-shirts for sale!
