A Place for Comics & Art
Emporium Purgatorio supports Art, Thought, and even the good old-fashioned enjoyment of a well-executed Comic.
If you dip your toe in, be ready to go swimming, whatever might be lurking below the surface…
Who is Emporium Purgatorio?
Emporium Purgatorio (EmpPurg) is the Shop side as well as the creative outlet for our Indie Comic obsession.
EmpPurg seeks to promote Art for Art’s sake, with an absolute moral compass focused on the Artists and the passions their comics, writing, and music represent.
How does the Comic & Art Shop work?
Emporium Purgatorio is seeking to grow a community focused on trulysupporting Indie Artists & Projects. We believe that ‘just adding’ an Artist’s comic or print next to a sea of others does no service to the Artist or the Reader.
We will also be continuously adding to our Alan Moore Comics & Art collection. These are from Personal Collections. Many being Artist’s Proofs and truly unique. All being works of art in their own right.
All systems are a go, go, go! Emporium Purgatorio is actively seeking/promoting Indie Comics, Indie Artists, and those that may have something to SAY through their art about our current climate of…well, of needing a ‘Mandrillifesto‘.
All characters are real. No names will be changed to protect anyone. Oh, and when I took 20 things and added another 3 from a friend, well wouldn’t you know! Magical!
Please, VOICES ARE NEEDED! Jump in on our comments, Artist’s Job Board, send an article or a revue. Make a comic. Sell your work here with no strings attached. Write a poem. Tell us to fuck off. *to be honest, this last one wouldn’t feel very good, but we support your right to give us the bird. we’re fans of aviary anyways.

Al Davison & Rees Finlay in Conversation on ‘The Declaration of Independents’ Podcast #7
“In the second and final part of our epic interview with comics legend Al Davison, we follow his career from the 90’s to the present day. Discussing his latest foray into autobio comics, Muscle Memory, along with the tough subject of discrimination and prejudice in society, and how it is portrayed in the media. As well we delve into his gothic romance ‘Future Echoes’ and his segment in JH Williams III anthology ‘WHERE WE LIVE’, in aid of the heartbreaking tragedy in Las Vegas in 2017.” ~ RF
