Sorry for the late notice folks, but if you can make it out tomorrow night you should. Friday, Nov. 16, from 6-9 I am signing and having a release party for my new book, Big Plans, The Collected Mini-Comics and More. If you can't make it but would like to order the book you can buy it directly from my publisher Bridge City Comics or our friends at Buy

In addition to signing I will have original artwork from the book for sale. Yes, I've postponed this long enough, but I should have it all available here at the party. Stop on by and say hello.

The Collected Mini-Comics and More

Color cover/BW interiors

Laugh-out-loud funny, chilling, and meditative, Big Plans collects Aron Nels Steinke's most intimate and relatable stories. With a unique sense of timing, these are incredibly readable comics that are hard to put down. Stories ranging from fear of terrorism, alcoholism, and a shooting at the mall, to a behind the curtain's look at the Academy Awards, Big Plans stands out as one of the most compelling works to come out of the modern DIY movement.

BIG PLANS: The Collected Mini-Comics and More collects Big Plans #1 - #5 and stories from Papercutter #9, Nerd Burglar, Song-Zine and Runner Runner.

Steinke’s work has a heartfelt touch that makes what could have been a collection of mundane stories a hilarious and endearing triumph… Entertaining to read over and over again.” Graphic Novel Reporter

"...Get acquainted with one of the best young underground cartoonists on the scene." The Onion’s A.V. Club

“…Sometimes there is a six panel grid, sometimes four panels per spread, sometimes the spread is one big panel. All are smooth transitions. Aron is someone who is very, very comfortable with the way that he sets up his “reveals” and his punchlines and gags. This is excellent cartooning. Excellent cartooning that is well written.” Frank Santoro, The Comics Journal

Short Run and BCGF plus two new books!

Good news everyone. If you’re in the Seattle area come check out this year’s Short Run small press festival. This Saturday at the Vera Project. I will have two new books: Mr. Wolf, my first year teaching elementary school. I folded and stapled these books myself, people. Second is my 360-page collection of my mini-comics, Big Plans, and other short stories, including my story of paranoia and paranormal activity from Papercutter # 9 (Published by Bridge City Comics).

Also, next weekend I will be in Brooklyn for the BCGF. I have heard so many good things about both festivals and excited that I can finally be there. If you’re around come and say hello. I’ll even have Mr. Wolf buttons for sale.
