First Order of Books In!

April 24 – Well, I didn’t foil a terrorist plot to derail a train in Ontario today — nor did I sternly warn North Korea to cease its reckless behavior. The big news in my world is that my very first shipment of political comic books came in the mail today.

Beginning in May, I will be tabling at a variety of cultural and political events to talk and sell political comics in Toronto. Why have I decided to launch as a distro? There are a couple of reasons… I love recommending books to folks, and I like being able to provide a way for me to pass on what I’ve read to others (the distro will include both new and used stuff), I think political comics are like most specialty comics: you can find a few at any given comic shop, but almost never a full and decent selection–I want to do this. And now for my favorite reason: activists, history buffs, and political junkies don’t go to comic shops. Comic book people go to comic shops. I want to bring political comics to folks who don’t think there’s anything for them in the medium.

If you’re in the Toronto area and have an event that you believe could benefit from such fine graphic literature, please drop me a line–thanks!
