New Stuff This Week

With C2E2 last week we were too busy to post new stuff, as the gentleman below would agree. Ah, theĀ  lonely lifeĀ  of a super hero.

So here’s the new stuff post this week but a day early, because we won’t have time to post it tomorrow. Lucky you! The weekly Top 10 posts will resume as usual on Tuesday.

But first, here’s some news:

Chicago Zine Fest started today! How exciting! Be here at Quimby’s tonight, Fri 3/25 9pm, 1854 W. North Ave for ZINESTER KARAOKE…And the winner of the Long Arm Stapler Award will be announced!
