Pulp Fiction Newsletter Week of 10/12/16

Hello everyone! Halloween is almost upon us and that means so is Comic Fest and Comikaze Expo! Be sure to bone up on the details below in the Upcoming Events section. So as not to conflict with Comic Fest, the Culver City Comic Jam has been bumped up to Sat, Oct 22.

Both stores are getting a big restock on trading post books so be sure to get in here early before all the good stuff finds a home!

From time to time I like to promote various projects from the Pulp Fiction community (including my own, sue me!). I’ve added a little section below called Community Spotlight where I’ll continue to highlight that stuff as it comes along. Please take a look to support our peeps!

Lastly, I’d like to make a gentle reminder to our DC customers that many of your books are still coming out bi-weekly and can start piling up really quickly. If you’re pulling more than a few DC books try to keep it in mind. See you at the bottom…
