MACE in SF – May 7
Check, check. Anyone out there? I haven’t updated this in literal years. Not that I think anyone looked at it to begin with but maybe there are readers of mine out there who don’t have instagram and get all their Rodeo Comics news the old-fashioned way: my website. So for those desktop web surfers IContinue reading “MACE in SF – May 7”

I’ll be at this mini-show with a quality line-up of vendors in Columbus, Ohio on Labor Day 2021. Come say hi if you’re in the area. I’ll have copies of Rodeo for sale.
Rodeo Etc Patreon
I surrendered to the future and started a Patreon. The pandemic isn’t going anywhere, and I’m unemployed, so I was just leaving money on the table by not making one. Subscriber’s to my patreon will receive a quarterly newsletter filled with comics and writings and bonus stuff like minicomics and pins and whatnot. I’m alsoContinue reading “Rodeo Etc Patreon”

Banana Pudding Milkshake
I was recently on an episode of the very funny (and informative) comics podcast Gutter Boys. The hosts, Cam del Rosario and JB Roe, are incredibly talented cartoonists in their own rights who also happen to make great podcast hosts, and it was really fun to shoot the shit and talk shop for 90 minutes.Continue reading “Banana Pudding Milkshake”
Wimp Digest – “Josh”
Enjoy this free short comic I made, from the out-of-print zine Wimp Digest by Josh Pettinger and I.
Rodeo #2 received a glowing review from the internet’s most prolific comics critic, Ryan Carey, over at his essential blog Four Color Apocalypse. I will now shamelessly share two very flattering paragraphs from it: The larger physical dimensions of the book likewise give Salazar’s cartooning a bit more real estate to spread out in, andContinue reading “Long Haul”
After printing delays (I was initially sent comics that were warped by humidity — long story), all orders are now shipping. Thanks for your patience and sorry for the delay! Enjoy!
Liberated by insignificance
Comics are hard to make. Any cartoonist who is worth their salt will tell you that. Even the cartoonists who make it look easy, effortless, fluid — they struggle and wrestle over every panel. If they don’t, they’re either a certified genius or they’re operating at only a quarter of their abilities. What makes aContinue reading “Liberated by insignificance”
Live Area 002
Over a year ago I wrote two reviews about old comics I picked up from the cheap bins and planned to write another review or two, but instead let it languish in my drafts until now. The thought process behind putting them up now is, “why not?” Without further fanfare: Barbarienne #1, #3-5 by MartinContinue reading “Live Area 002”
