Link roundup

1. Fascinating insight into how comic book stores manage to stay open:

Having very specific stores in very specific areas in Manhattan has been essential to the current comics industry, the publishing of which is still concentrated within a few blocks, and the industry has done its best to maintain these, despite rising rents, and 9/11 on one hand and late orders and financial problems on the other.
2.Santa/Krampus by M. S. Corley.

3. Hellboy as Santa Claus. And this is a good scifi Christmas pin-up.

*Buy Hellboy toys at eBay.

  1. Sadly, Diamond Distro (Previews) no longer considers comic shops as direct merket for trade paperbacks (major bookstores get their tpb's 2/3 weeks earlier). It is sad when the only main distrobution center is helping to kill the very stores it should be supporting.
