New Comics Day: Farel Dalrymple's POP GUN WAR sequel


Pop Gun War: Chain Letter © Copyright 2009 – Farel Dalrymple

We’re very proud to present the yet-to-be published sequel to Farel Dalrymple’s Pop Gun War.  Farel recently collaborated with writer, Jonathan Lethem, on one of last year’s best comics, Omega the Unknown, and was also a founder of the influential Meathaus collective.  He’s currently working on The Wrenchies, his first original graphic novel with First Second.  He’s happy to finally share this unseen work with readers.  Expect new installments at least once a week over the next couple months.  Farel will self publish the first half of Pop Gun War: Chain Letter as a handmade zine to debut at next month’s Stumptown Comics Fest (April 18-19) in Portland, OR.

  4. YEAH!!! Farel is one of my favorite all-time comics artists. Pop Gun War collected is a prized possession that I often purchase for the good-hearted, intelligent people in my life. I can’t wait to read the follow-up. Feels like I’ve been waiting forever. Thanks for this Arthur.
