Newsletter 11/10/14

Hello everyone! It’s a good week to make your way into the store because we’re doing another deal of the week triple-header for new comics! Drifter #1, Kitchen #1, and Deep State #1 are all $1.99 this week. See below in the featured section for descriptions. It’s a great opportunity to try something new. I haven’t had a chance to read Kitchen or Deep State yet, but Drifter is awesome. It’s from the same creative team that did Viking, a wonderful, underrated book. It’s a sci-fi western of sorts, so those enjoying Copperhead should get on it.

Some of them are monstrous beyond reason. And most of the time, they go as expected and the public is never the wiser. Most of the time.
