I went to a couple of booksales this weekend and found some cartoon publications with local ties that surprised me.
The New Yorker isn't based here of course, but they do specialty books on demand. Here's a local one that was probably a fund-raising premium for the local public radio and tv station:
The New Yorker Book Of WETA Cartoons
New Yorker Magazine
New York: Cartoon Bank, 2004
The University of Maryland's Terrapin Anime Society (TAS) produced at least 10 issues of this Tsunami fanzine:
This Fandom Directory out of Springfield, VA was a complete surprise to me. The online version lives at FANDATA:
Fandom Directory Number 19 2000-2001 Edition
Hopkins, Harry and Mariane S.
Springfield, VA: FANDATA Publications, 2000
When I finally get all of my local books and comics arranged in one place, it will probably be at least a bookshelf and not the Six Feet of Local Comics I had expected. I bought about eight signed Herblock books this weekend too which will take up most of a shelf by themselves.
