Grass Valley, CA: Today, veteran comics critics Daniel Elkin, Alex Hoffman, Rob Clough, and Ryan Carey announced the formation of a new, non-profit publishing company, Fieldmouse Press, establishing a visionary, ambitious, and dedicated multi-venue publishing initiative within the burgeoning small press comics community. The company’s first publishing project, SOLRAD (www.solrad.co), will publish comics criticism, essays, interviews, and new comics as a part of a larger effort to serve the public good. SOLRAD will launch at the beginning of January 2020.
Fieldmouse Press will be operated by President Daniel Elkin, long-time publisher and editor at Your
Chicken Enemy, with Alex Hoffman, publisher of Sequential State serving as Secretary/Treasurer. Rob
Clough of High-Low Comics and Ryan Carey of Four Color Apocalypse round out the company's initial
board of directors. The aim of Fieldmouse Press is to emphasize its four pillars of "comics, critique,
community, and collaboration" by presenting challenging, unique, and diverse material to as wide an
audience as possible.
Of the press’ founding, Secretary/Treasurer Alex Hoffman said, “Our goal is to provide a space for
readers, artists, and the general public to explore the comic arts in the many forms they come in. As a
501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, our goal is to serve this community that we love and do something we
think hasn’t been possible before now. And as a nonprofit organization, we can take chances that other
Fieldmouse's first major publishing project will be a new website, SOLRAD (www.solrad.co), which will
be a comics journalism hub featuring all-new and original content ranging from comics criticism, original
comics, essays, interviews, and the promotion of small-press events and releases. Further publishing
projects will be announced in due course, and will likewise share in the company's expansive, inclusive,
and innovative vision.
