Operation Comic Shop Canvas:


So, this past weekend my friends Seth and Dan and myself hit the major comic shops in Chicago, so we could get some copies of the books on the shelves. It went very well. Everyone we met was very friendly and very helpful. We chatted about joys and pitfalls of self-publishing, what works and what doesn’t, and got some tips on talking to stores in general.

A big shoutout the following shops:
