We just got a big order from Midtown Comics late last night. I'm still reeling a bit. Since April, we've been getting these orders and reorders from Midtown, Comic Relief and Jim Hanley's Universe which have just been amazing. And a bit scary. It's one thing for a store to take a chance on you (a saintly thing, in my book), but it's a whole other kettle of fish to sell enough of those books to require reorders.

Also, I'm a little embarassed that I didn't realize there were two Midtown Comics, Times Sq AND Grand Central. I've been to the Times Sq., but not the GC. I'll have to check that one out some time.


Speaking of comics, I'm hoping to do some scans of MoCCA books tonight so that I can write a little about the ones that struck me. One I read last night was 72-pages long, densely panelled and 7 x 8.5. And I couldn't put the damn thing down.


Speaking of speaking of comics, Ed Cunard interviews AdHouse Books' Chris Pitzer. Good interview and the official announcement that AdHouse will be publishing the new Dawso book. This thing has been in the works for forever, and I'm glad that it's found a home at a good house. I'm not sure when Dawso made the deal, everytime I saw him his 'new voice' was surrounded by admirers and people wanting to touch him like he was the Ayatollah. The interview also adresses some stuff of conventional interest, and whatnots.


Speaking of houses, that guy with thumbs who lives in mine might be interested in Ellen Forney's big new book from Fantagraphics, I Love Led Zeppelin. It will look good with the Eternals he's rushing out to buy.


Speaking of Led Zeppelin, I'm thinking about returning to the land of the ice and snow, during these eternally sweltering hot days. Especially today, this longest of days. Right after we fill that order.

You b crazy. There ARE the good aspects, but I need my Mr. Freeze suit to properly appreciate them.

I'm in love with the long skirts, though. Wimmins are less self-concious and just let them fly up over their heads. It's funny + pervy =

I figured you'd get Eternals, but thought I'd warn you 'bout the Zep for the Jillz.

Picked up Mome, Casanova, Monster AND Death Note. Whadda country!
