Cover, July 13: “Excelsior!”
Thanks, Alex, for including me alongside these creators. For those of you who remember the series I produce with Monica, I promise there’s more Raised By Squirrels in the works. New Mexico has such a amazing, vibrant and friendly comics scene—I encourage anyone interested in independent comics and making them to follow 7000 BC, which offers resources and advice for creators, as well as opportunities to just hang out with others making comics.
And beyond the great people mentioned in the article, check out the work of other locals making comics and supporting the community, including Jamie Chase, Christian Beranek, Skylar Patridge, Willow Tomeo and Enrique “SYKRYK” Martinez (I’m sure I’m leaving someone out).

Editor’s note: John Stege has been writing about opera since Mozart was a pup, and he’s been in the SFR family since 1986.
News, July 1: “Press Protection Affirmed”
So a journalist uncovered this alleged crime. I wonder what hasn’t been uncovered. Boy oh boy, I sure would like to know. Legislators: some are just like mobsters. Well, the real good part is you can’t hide anything from the man upstairs!
