Australian Comics stores list:

Postby bluetoaster on Fri Aug 26, 2005 10:15 pm

Is there a list/resource of all the comicshops in australia that we may be able to use when soliciting our books? Sorry if this question has been answered before - but i have just finished a book & am looking to get it into stores around the country.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks Gary.
Much appreciated.

Oh - & there is a sample of my new book 'Withheld' on my site.
www.bluetoaster.com

You can either buy it from my website, or if your in Melbourne - you can buy it from 'Minotaur'.

Comics'R'us (city store) are reviewing it as we speak & will hopefully say yes next week - but i'm looking to get it to more stores around Australia.... hence wanting the list.

I just read about 'Witheld' just now but, I was in Minotaur today and I didn't see it (Though granted I wasn't looking for it at the time).

Hey Booby,

I thought your samples and subject manner looked GREAT! So good in fact, I just PayPal'd for a copy (wasn't sure when I'd get to Minotaur next). I'll be waiting expectantly at the mailbox! :)

Wow, just echoing what everyone else said. Love your rendering, great pacing and facial expressions too. You really should be pimping this work more.

You should put it on Phase Two as well, to give it a bit more exposure.

Thanks for the compliments guys.

Dean: - Got your paypal & will be in your hands this week.
Aaron: - One's on it's way to you too buddy. Thanks for everything.
Jason: - I've prostituted myself freely to a few anthologies over the years, (like INK1 &2, Escape, Vexed, etc).... although I happily didn't get any money for it, so I guess i was a 'slut' more than a 'prostitute'.
Tonia: - I'm going through the 'pimping' process now & Phase-two is on the list... as well as the other stores around Australia - which will be 'interesting' to say the least.

Am 1/3 of the way through the first book of a new series I'm doing, so that should be finished in the next few months. Lets hope I don't get RSI.

I'm sure some of these stores are no longer in business and that others don't carry Australian comics or in some cases don't carry new comics at all,

Can I just add that the Hayase! list might not be the best or current resource to go off now or in the future because for the last couple of months adding new posts or editing existing entries has been nigh impossible due to website bugs. :<
