The news about San Diego Comic Con is coming in faster than the Flash these days, and our buddies over at Cardboard Spaceship booth #5638 have a deluge of amazing exclusives lined up.

We might as well cut to the chase since our attention spans are short, and as we type this 47.3 more SDCC news items just got announced!

Up first are two exclusive colorways Scribe‘s Scrimshaw Mattenoots! Scribe being a local fan favorite at the con and the much-loved Scrimshaw coming back will make this a whale of an exclusive. (I had to, I really did)

Now one thing we can always count on at SDCC are the amazing shirt designs, and Lightsleepers brought their A game with these two.

Before Thanos can get his big hands on the gauntlet, our boys over at Steamer Lane tossed up the Infinity Shaka!

Who cares if it is North, South, East, or West because The Metal face will give you his very best!
No Doom here!

Mourning Apparitions

With new work from Kathie Olivas,
Lana Crooks, and Michele Lynch

Stranger Factory is excited to announce our July exhibit, Mourning Apparitions. With new works from Kathie Olivas, Lana Crooks, and Michele Lynch, the exhibition will embody ghostly projections through expressions of longing, loss, and grief as well as the playful nature of the spirits that stay behind.
KOpressKathie Olivas, co-owner of Stranger Factory, is known worldwide for her mixed media band of misfit children. We can expect to see approximately 15 original 3-D sculpts and some paintings from Olivas for Mourning Apparitions. The Misery Children will be portraying an often unspoken side of mourning: the hallucinations and hauntings that may result from a grief that is inadequately expressed or a ghost that doesn’t yet know how to let go of the bereaved.
LCpressChicago-based, Lana Crooks, is best known for her soft specimen-style sculpture. For Crooks, Mourning Apparitions is an opportunity to honor the realm of ghostly apparitions which pair well with her iconic, vintage style. We can expect to see 15-20 textile sculpts, elegantly displayed in shadow boxes, miniature museum cases, and bell jars.

MpressFigurative pop-surrealist, Michele Lynch, will also be exploring the land of ghostly hauntings with her Steampunk Souls. We are anticipating approximately 15 original 3-D sculpted figures and we might even see a few paintings from Lynch for Mourning Apparitions.

The opening reception is Friday, July 3rd from 6 – 9 pm at Stranger Factory. Kathie Olivas and Lana crooks will be in attendance. The Mourning Apparitions exhibition will be on display until August 2nd.
