Triple podcast madness!

As our astute readers noticed, I messed up the link to our SPX Special podcast, plus we took last week off, so now you get three podcasts all at once! Enjoy!

Thanks for everyone who came out to meet local creator Gordon Harris and pick up copies of his new graphic novel, Pedestrian! We had a great turnout and Gordon had a good time! We still have copies left if you missed him.

Our next event is a group signing by many of the creators behind the new anthology about the history of Washington DC, District Comics: An Unconventional History of Washington DC! We'll have at least 10 of the creators behind the book at our U Street store in DC on October 27! More info is below!

Feel free to forward on our newsletter, and please send us any comments or mailing list requests to

- the Big Planet Comics kids
