Buy local, read global

This Saturday, November 7th, is “National Bookstore Day.” This is part of Publishers Weekly's “Read Locally” campaign, which I believe is a brilliant idea. And in the spirit of the campaign, our books are receiving some attention at one of the Midwest’s premiere comic-book stores – the Source in St. Paul, Minnesota. Here’s a sample of what they are saying:

Stone Arch Books, the fiction imprint of Capstone Publishers, a family-owned business based in Minneapolis, has churned out more award-winning comics than, perhaps, any local publisher. Until now, their books — which include hundreds of original titles and major partnerships with DC Comics and Sports Illustrated — could only be checked out at libraries or purchased online. But, for the first time ever, several of these locally made comics are available at The Source! Want a twist on an old classic? Check out Stone Arch’s stunning adaptations of “Hansel and Gretel” and the “Three Little Pigs.” If you’re looking for action, enter the Recon Academy — four high-school heroes fighting high-tech crimes. Or, set down that Simpsons comic and get your monthly dose of whacked-out humor with the characters Zinc Alloy and Eek and Ack.
