Hope you all had a great holiday weekend and plenty of turkey and stuffins. We spent the whole holiday mucking out our shelf porn — organizing shelves, tossing pamphlets, setting aside some books for storage some for donation, a few for eBay. And some for Beat giveaways! Check back every day this week at 5 pm EST for some really swell classic GNs which we’re giving away to lucky readers! A few other notes of business:
WELCOME TODD ALLEN
You may have noticed Todd Allen’s byline on several stories over the last week. Todd has been covering the book market and digital comics for a while now and we’re happy to have him contributing more for the next while, at least.
