I don’t think I would post something like this for the Big Two companies because they have tons of money to spend on advertising. But, then again nobody else would dare do something like this - - just our friendly, independent outlet for the best in creator-owned properties, alternative goodies, and loads of kid-friendly reading material = TOP SHELF.
I’m not even upset that I just bought a copy of THE UNDERWATER WELDER at full price from the Top Shelf booth at Baltimore Comic Con. Glad to do it! Heck, I later had that copy autographed by Jeff Lemire. So, even before I can post my review of this great new work I suggest you take advantage of this and pick up a copy for yourself at a bargain price. I’ll be looking over their lists carefully in the coming days. I know for sure I will pick up another copy of BB WOLF (because I’m pretty sure I’m never going to see the one I loaned out two years ago!) as well as another back-up of THE SURROGATES (ditto the reason, except my loaner has an autograph) and NIGHT ANIMALS . .. and UNDERWIRE. What a great list! I recommend all of those books I just mentioned.
Ok . . . here’s the official press release . . . . . . . . . ..
