If, however, you're local to the Boston area yourself, please consider patronizing one of our fantastic local comic shops - of which there are many. My own most local of shops, Hub Comics, just happens to be having an enormous sale this weekend. I'm not sure if they'll have the anthology in stock yet, but drop in anyway and pick up that graphic novel you've been meaning to add to your library! (I finally have copies of Maus, to my great relief. I don't think I've read it since high school!)
Seriously, they've had kind of a rough year, and they really deserve some support. Hub is one of the friendliest comic shops I've ever stepped into (which is saying something; I have a knack for finding good ones). They not only have a huge selection of quality sequential art; they're a community, well, hub (and practically my home not-so-far-away from home at this point). And they have an adorable dog. What more can you want?
Since I'm on the subject of selling you things ... I'm planning to have my first couple minicomics done and ready to go within about a month. I have a list of great stores I'm hoping to send them to, and I may start looking into conventions for next year(?!), but I'm pondering setting up an etsy store as well. None of the cartoonists I know personally use this method, but I've seen minis for sale there before. If anyone had thoughts (think this would/n't work? would/n't like the opportunity to give me money? etc), please share? ♥
Sorry for the huge artless post! The next one will at least include doodles or teaser panels, I promise.
