Trying another new thing for the New Year. Revived my “Stackology” feature a couple months back, mostly to shed additional light and love onto books that I’m into, with an obvious slant towards hyping the work of my fellow black creators. But given how the comics industry actually works, and the demonstrated importance of pre-ordering comics months in advance, a release day shout-out might be too little too late.
So what I’m going to do every month is publish a Previews Short Order Form, pre-filled with my own personal orders for comics written and illustrated by some of my contemporaries. Feel free to download this PDF and adjust as necessary for your own pre-ordering needs, keeping in mind this is by no means intended to be an exhaustive, comprehensive list.
There are certainly people and products that I’ve missed, but I still think this makes for a fine start, especially for fans (and other creators) that honestly have no idea just how many talented black artists and writers are out there right now.
And in order to stay out there, you have to buy their work.
Hope this helps, and most retailers will happily accept these forms by e-mail, or just printed out and handed in. Anything I’ve missed can be referenced in the thread below, and apologies in advance for that.
Thanks, and so excited for this upcoming year! Good luck to all of you, and I’ve said over and over again that 2016 is going to be HUGE, so let’s get out there and prove it…
