Uncivilized Books to publish Sam Alden’s “Hawaii 1997″

One of the “It” cartoonists at this year’s SPX was definitely Sam Alden, who took home the Most Promising New Talent Ignatz, and was generally mentioned by many people as a cartoonist to watch. While he’s yet to team-up with a “home” publisher, Uncivilized Books will be the first to put out an Alden collection. Tom Kaczynski announced that next year he’ll put out a book pairing Alden’s “Hawaii 1997″ with a new story in a “flipbook” format.

Originally released on the web, “Hawaii 1997″ is the story of a young boy’s beach encounter with a mysterious girl who introduces him to the wider joys and sorrows of life.
