Tankadere 2014!

Happy New Year everyone, and my apologies for the extended silence. In the past few months we’ve been busy!

A short comic called The Discovery has been released, with art by longtime contributor Sean P. Corwin and writing by Rhiannon Rasmussen-Silverstein. It is currently only available at conventions.

Tankadere 4’s release date has been moved back from Spring 2014 to Summer 2014 for various reasons, the main one being that we are dedicated to publishing the best anthology that we possibly can. Many fantastic stories and artists are lined up for this volume already, so trust me when I say it is going to be fantastic! If you’re interested in contributing, there’s still time, so feel free to shoot a line to us at tanka at crabtankink dot com before the end of February.

We’ve also got a chapbook by the internationally published fantasy author Kate Elliott up in our store, a illustrated epilogue to her Spiritwalker trilogy called The Secret Journal of Beatrice Hassi Barahal, with art by the mega-talented painter Julie Dillon.

Our current confirmed convention lineup for 2014 is:
Emerald City Comicon, March 28th-30th
Jet City Comic Show, Nov. 8th

Open for Submissions: Power Drive A

This is not a Crab Tank publication, but it’s one that we’re totally psyched about.

This is for all of you Power Rangers, Kamen Rider, GaoGaiGar, Kikaida, Gundam, giant robot or no-limits  crimefighting spandex superhero team fans.
