Introducing Wm Brian MacLean, #RIND CONTRIBUTOR, Creator of “Never Trust A Junkie”


Newly politicized in 2010 by the G20 fiasco in Toronto, Wm Brian MacLean launched OpinioNation, an unfunny and little-read editorial strip. It ran for 2+ years, mostly online. In years prior, Brian had made farcical comics about alt-dimension Sea Monkeys, smutty corrugated boxes, finding one’s keys in one’s vagina, and the like. But editorializing on everything he resented about society took a personal toll. That strip was shuttered on the eve of 2012 as he launched Distractionism, a return to lighthearted storytelling. Rock Is Not Dead is an opportunity for Brian to revisit political criticism by recontextualizing anti-drug war lyrics as anti-tarsands and anti-surveillance state imagery. His work can be read in Beyond Anthology, Chilly Tales, Steampunk Originals vol 2 and various zines, as well as at roostertree.com. Brian is @roostertree on Twitter.

Crowd Funding ≠ Money for Nothing!

Hey all…We are more than halfway towards our first crowd funding milestone and 11th Dimension Press wants to take this opportunity to thank our supporters and remind everyone else that we are NOT looking for free money!  Think of it as an advance purchase…

To give everyone an idea of what you can purchase in advance of the ROCK IS NOT DEAD releases we’ve worked up a few mock images.  Keep in mind the real thing is likely to look different, but for the time being, here’s what you can get if you support our ongoing crowd funding campaign:
