What more do we have to say other than: Short Box Pin.
MINIS BY JULIAN CALLOS
$6 – $7 each
Three fanciful zines done by a wonderfully imaginative young local cartoonist just getting going in the world.
CRICKETS #5 BY SAMMY HARKHAM
The most recent chapter of Blood of the Virgin might be one of the best pieces of storytelling this store has ever seen. No jokes.
INCUBATION BY CHARLES BURNS
A full color zine of recent, previously unseen drawings by Charles Burns. Imagine the recipient’s surprise when you’ve just given them the coolest thing they’ve ever seen.
A (very) oversized zine of completely incredible line drawings done by the mysterious artist only known as Mad Meg. If that cover doesn’t grab you, nothing will! Published in France, so you know it’s good.

PAREIDOLIA BY JAMES JEAN
