‘Snooker’ Now For Sale Online

snooker

Snooker, a 64-page full-color compilation of many of my best minicomics, anthology contributions, one-pages, superhero pinups and other miscellanea is now available for sale directly from IndyPlanet.com for $10.00 plus shipping.  I noticed that the site requires you to create an account to place an order–an irritating and unnecessary practice that I find really annoying–so if you don’t already deal with IndyPlanet already or you just don’t want the hassle of creating an account, please just email me at the address in the masthead image up top and I’ll send you one directly if you can pay via Paypal.

    Ah! Did you have this at the show? I didn’t see it!

  2. Ben says:

    I did, in fact. Although, given the seating arrangement, I’d probably have to be transparent for you to have seen it from your table!

  3. Chris S says:

    Gah! I can’t believe it. When you said that you didn’t have any new books… I mean, I know it’s not “new” per se, but I doubt I have much of what’s inside.

    Make sure I buy one next time I see you, ’cause I’m foolish and likely won’t remember.

    Why the title “Snooker”? :)

  5. Ben says:

    Alan, SNOOKER is a half-baked reference to Dan Clowes’s series EIGHTBALL (both being billiard games), the idea being that, like EIGHTBALL, SNOOKER is a “one man anthology.” (And not, of course, that I’m anywhere near the league of Dan Clowes as a cartoonist!)

    Hi Ben, I hope you can help me out here. This is an old post of yours that I’ve just stumbled upon. I was googling up ka-blam when your post came up in the search. And I recognized the cover of your book, Snooker, from some samples brought into a comic book class I took at School of Visual Arts in NYC by my teacher years ago. I’d really like to get a copy, by apparently ka-blam doesn’t publish it anymore. Used the link you have in your post, and it said it couldn’t be found. Is it possible I could still buy a copy from you? I want to print a book of my own using the same specs, and I want to see the quality of their work and yours as well. Please contact me at neilsanzari326@gmail.com? I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you.
