HorrorHound and sketchbook

I checked out the latest issue of HorrorHound
and found an article about horror hosting.
issue021
The article mentions Atomic Age Cinema and shows a picture of them.
The folks from AAC are also emceeing a Vampira retrospective in Indianapolis this March. So if you're in the area check that out. I wish I could.

Here's a couple sketches I've done recently.

a comic book store I actually like

I flew to Ann Arbor, Michigan this weekend to celebrate Mardi Gras. I'll let that go unexplained.

Whenever I'm in Ann Arbor I go to The Vault of Midnight, a comic shop I actually like.

Here it is, on Main Street.
It's brightly lit, the staff is nice, it's two stories, it seems to get a lot of walk in business and younger people.

One of the things I really like about it is the way it's organized. Every section is well labeled, the kids comics are in the front, the small press comics are in the back.
Then there's tables and racks filled with staff selections and stuff like that.
The downstairs is long boxes and other stuff. The other stuff consists of a bookshelf of Hernandez brothers books among other stuff.
Here's their website

Of course one of the things I like most about them is they sell MY comic.

Have a good Mardi Gras everyone.
