Indie Comic Book Week
In October, I alerted you to this:
Diamond Comics Distributors isn’t shipping any new books the week of Dec 30th — which means that comic shops will have no new offerings that week. A grass-roots group has seized this as an opportunity for independent comics artists to fill that space on comic shelves with independent offerings. To that end they’ve created the Indy Comic Book Week Web site. On the site, they’re listing creator resources as well as participating retail shops. So far, eight retailers are participating (roughly 20 shops) including virtually all the big shops in Dallas, along with others in North Carolina and Michigan. And the list keeps growing. On the blog they’re allowing any independent creator putting a book on comic shelves that day to promote their book by putting up previews and information on which shops they will distribute their comics to.
If you are a participant, feel free to break the traditional no-plug rule and post below what you contributed and where we might find it.
