If you’re traveling around near the O’Hare branch of the blue line today, make a quick detour at the California Stop. There’s a dude painting a dystopian comic strip on the building across the street on California. I should have gotten his name, that would have made this blog post a lot more interesting. Maybe some sort of link…yeah, that would have been nice. A photo, too. Oh well.

Hallelujah! We got new tracts by Jack T. Chick in today. If those tiny nuggets of salvation are too light a meal for your heavenly appetite, consider the Crusader’s Comics series; we have all 18 volumes! Amen!
Grant Reynolds has been making and self-publishing comics for the better part of his life. By the time you see him at this event he will have turned thirty years old only a few weeks prior. You might wanna wish him a happy birthday (belated) when you see him sitting at the table signing copies of his new book published by Top Shelf entitled Comic Diorama, or even ask how his summer was. If you’re thinking to yourself, “Grant Reynolds, where have I heard that name before?” …well, it might have been from The Skeleton News or Trubble Club, or you may have read one of his books, like Smaller Parts or To the Mouth of the Source…or maybe you both just talked about movies in someone’s kitchen at a party. In any case, if he owes you money, never returned that book he borrowed, or you’ve just got some personal score you’ve been waiting to settle, you’ll know where to find him on October 6th at 7pm.
