Nostalgia & Comics needs you!

leave a comment »


Richard Cowdry (of Bedsit Journal fame) writes about Birmingham’s Nostalgia & Comics and their push for more small press submissions.

This is great news, as decent shops that are welcoming to, and actually engaging with small press and indy creators are not only rare, but can have a hugely beneficial effect on the scene and artform. One word of encouragement, one extra comic sold, can make all the difference to someone who is just testing the waters… or to seasoned self-publishers for that matter.

I was in Nostalgia & Comics just the other day and picked up a bunch of cool new books, and a very pleasant experience it was too.
