Labor Day means Phoenix books in progress

If you’re paid any attention over the past few months, I was laying low on comics since the SPACE 2022 show in Columbus.

STRANGE TIMES #1 is Sold Out, still available digitally

Thanks in part to low print runs, high customer interest and USPS ineptitude (they lost 20% of my print run…sigh), Strange Times #1 is SOLD OUT for paper copies. At present, there are no plans to reprint the book. A major factor will be whether I choose to do comic shows like Columbus, Ohio’s S.P.A.C.E.Continue reading “STRANGE TIMES #1 is Sold Out, still available digitally”
