Pre-Order Jim Shepard: Negotiate Nothing
Nix Comics is happy to announce Bela Koe-Krompecher’s follow up to 2014’s “Do You Remember Rock and Roll Record stores” which will feature his memories of his friend, DIY music pioneer and cult favorite Jim Shepard. Jim began producing and distributing self recorded tapes and records in the late 70s and continued through the late 90s both with his solo efforts and with bands such as Vertical Slit, V-3, and Ego Summit. "Jim Shepard: Negotiate Nothing" is the story of a Columbus, OH music legend as seen by Bela and placed within the context of the 90s alternative music scene with featured text taken directly from Bela's memoir blog.
Jim Shepard Negotiate Nothing will be a 20 page comic-zine written by Bela Koe-Krompecher with illustrations by Andy Bennett. It will be released at the Small Press and Alternative Comics Expo in Columbus on July 18th-19th. You may pre-order your copy now for $5 with no shipping charge.

Do You Remember Rock 'N Roll Record Stores
Adapted from a true to life story about meeting The Ramones by Bela Koe-Krompecher from his popular blog about the Columbus punk and indie rock scene of the 90s. Do You Remember Rock N Roll Record Stores is a story about the punk and indie rock scene of the 90s, from the record stores to the seedy bars. It harkens back to a day before celebrity culture made our idols unapproachable caricatures. On the edges, this comic is about a couple of goofy record store kids meeting the Ramones, at its core this comic is about a part of our past culture that is sorely missed.
