New Graphic Novel Day: December 30

Diamond Distribution is taking this week off, which means no new comics tomorrow (except for Blackest Night #6 and Siege #0, which were shipped last week and embargoed until now). That severely cuts down on the number of new graphic novels that comics stores will have available.

Some stores have figured out a way around that though. As I mentioned some weeks ago, Jess Hickman and I will be appearing at Source Comics and Games as part of their Mini Indy-Con tomorrow night from 5:00 - 9:00 pm. A bunch of other local creators will be there too and the Source's new comics rack will be full of independent books.



One of the ones I'm most looking forward to getting is Mike Bullock and Michael Metcalf's Timothy and the Transgalactic Towel. I mentioned it on Robot 6 as a book I was looking forward to (a kid has a Hawaiian beach towel that takes him to outer space and gets him involved in an intergalactic war), but I've never gotten around to picking it up. I'm planning to use this off-week to correct that, especially since Mike Bullock will be one of the people attending the Indy-Con event.

Here are some more details, including the complete guest list and a ton of the indy comics that'll be available that day (for some reason, Cownt Tales didn't make it onto the list, but it'll definitely be there). If you live in the Twin Cities, I hope you'll come by, say hello, and pick up something new and cool.
