I can’t wait for this to come back.

Dear Gentlemen of Comics...Can We Talk?

tessfowler:

Laying my sword down for a second. You’re safe here. I’m not going to hack you to pieces. For the moment, at least. (See? That’s a joke. I’m normal just like you. I make jokes too.) But I warn you, this is probably not something you want to hear. Don’t…

Beth's Digital Yard Sale - Books!

girladactyl:

Hello! I’m FINALLY done with the list of 300+ books that Brandon and I need to get rid of before we move. So we’re having a Digital Yard Sale about it!

The Rules of the Digital Yard Sale are as follows:

1) Claim books for yourself. It’s in a Google Doc and the sheet is editable—we’re on the honor system so don’t be a jerk and steal people’s already claimed books.

2) Teachers who want books for their classroom can have them for free (though if you’re really far away I may need like $5 for shipping… fair?)

3) If you’re local (NYC) and can come pick books up: $2/PB $4/HC

4) If you’re not local I’m happy to mail the books to you for $4/PB $6/HC

5) If you’re gonna buy more than one book I’m happy to work out a deal. Just claim them and message me and we’ll talk.

6) If you’re not picking them up/bringing cash to my house you can pay me through PayPal. Please make a note of what and where I’m sending.

There are three categories: Comics, Ficton, and Non-Fiction/Textbooks/Other. Scroll down to see them all. Comics and Non-Fiction are sorted by Title. Fiction is grouped loosely by author/series.

Finally, due to the nature of my job, some of these books may be things that some of you have worked on or books that I was given. Please do not take it personally if I’m giving it away. I purged about 70% of my collection, leaving behind books that I mostly have already read and enjoyed and know that I reasonably won’t read again soon (and when I’m ready to I can get another copy). There’s nothing like the prospect of lugging all of one’s books across country to make one very practical about what to keep and what to pass on to another lucky reader.

Have at it, book people!

Self-reblogging for the morning crowd! Books super cheap! Indie comics, mainstream comics, fantasy, sci-fi, ARCs, YA, memoirs, reference, romance, full series!

spx:

Speaking of new books at SPX, have you checked out the ever expanding SPX 2014 Debut Book List at spxpo.com?

And maybe open up the exhibitors list as well - time to start making real deal plans.  This is a marathon, not a sprint.

We’re closing in on 150 new books at this year’s show, still with several weeks to go!  Need to add you debut?  Do it here.

Am I lusting after this necklace because it looks like it should be from straight out of Emma Rios&#8217; Pretty Deadly art? No, YOU shut up!

Sound Off

kellysue:

#CarolCorps in Southern California — can you sound off for me?  I might need a favor.  I think I have a rough idea of who’s in the area, but a roll call would help.  

Let’s see. How shall we do this?  I don’t know where the “allow replies” box went, so reblog with a comment, I guess?  And if others could just signal boost, that would be great.  

Well I’m in NYC now but depending on WHEN you need a favor I’m moving to LA in just under 4 weeks (which is terrifying so also PS any other LA Carol Corp members any advice?)
