Creator Spotlight – Maryland Indie Comic Publisher PLB Comics

PLB Comics BannerThe Creator Spotlight proudly welcomes PLB Comics, an Indie Comic Publisher from Maryland’s Eastern Shore. So, in their own words let’s take a look at what PLB Comics is all about.

PLB Comics - FallFirst of all I’d like to thank Nick Davis for the opportunity for me to talk about PLB Comics with all of you. I’m James Dufendach, Editor/Letterer/PR & Marketing/Grunt labor, and am one-third of the core PLB creative team. We are an independent publisher located on the Eastern Shore of MD, and we specialize in grittier titles, think cable TV after 9pm.

Our current main line titles include The Fall: Vengeance & Justice of which we just published the fifth issue, and Gideon and Sebastian: Predators & Prey whose third issue is currently in development. PLB also does a yearly Halloween special which features anthology style tales of terror. Continue reading

Tristan the Teddy Bear encounters the Creature from the Black Lagoon at the Baltimore Book Festival.

Last weekend Tristan and I had an adventure at the Baltimore Book Festival in the new addition to this celebration of the written word in the Charm City Comics Pavilion hosted by Third Eye Comics and Th3rd World Studios. I wasn’t too sure what to expect as last years adventure at the BBF didn’t go too well for me, this year though was completely different, I had a total blast and my kids came along with me to see what Tristan and I get up too – highlights after the jump.

A most interesting and delightful Annapolis Book Festival – Thank you Key School & Third Eye Comics


Tristan meets Clifford the Big Red Dog at Annapolis Book Festival

sm-comickeyToday I attended the Annapolis Book Festival at the Key School as a Guest of Third Eye Comics who were running the Comic Key & Artist Alley.  In short it was a little like a mini-mini-con held on the school grounds and was a fun, relaxing experience.

The smaller events give me a wonderful opportunity to talk about my work and really interact with Comic fans at a more personal level, talking about experiences, my work, my art, what projects I am working on next and generally enjoying the show without any real pressure. If you’ve never attended the Annapolis Book Festival at the Key School then I highly recommend this event and you should check it out next year. For me this was very good show and I am energized for next weekend’s Awesome Con.


Baltimore Book Fest…. Well… Kinda didn’t work out so well…

This weekend I was at the Baltimore Book Festival, a special event for all things wordy and it nice to see a festival dedicated to the written word. I had a table in the Authors Tent and for my entire assigned day I sadly struck out, I guess the mojo just wasn’t with me and the Teddy Bear Tales, Wonder Tales and Exposition all batted below average – we got totally destroyed by a series of Pop-up books. You can’t always have a successful show… Anyhow, enjoy the pictures and thank you to my wife Jean, and my girl Chris for coming along and keeping me company… On to the next show!
