Issues One and Two of my comic book series SHIRTLIFTER are now available through bookselling juggernaut Amazon.com. Honestly, I’m a bit ambivilant: I would quite honestly much rather that you pick it up from your local brick and mortar comic or GLBT bookstore (a list of those stores who have carried my work is here), the truth of the matter is that most of you probably can’t. If you don’t live in one of these cities on the list, the easiest way for anybody to get SHIRTLIFTER is through me directly. But most people don’t do that kind of direct mail-order, and I recognize that; I’m more or less the same way. It’s alot easier to dump something into your shopping cart, along with a lot of other things you;’ve been meaning to buy anyway. And though my Amazon titles are not discounted, you can get free shipping if your order totals over $25. The Amazon listing also is legitimizing for a lot of people: for a lot of people, your book doesn’t exist unless its listed on Amazon, so this makes me seem more like a real publisher. So: there you have it. If you’ve been meaning to pick up the books, this would be a great time to do so.
BTW, I’m pretty close to sold out on Issue 1, and it’s NOT going to be reprinted for a loooooooong time. And when it is, it will have some major changes to both the art and format. So this is sort of last call on this edition.
