Stranger than Fiction 2

In a similar vein over at iFanboy.com:

“Sonny Liew is a name you might not know, but you should. Eisner nominated and winner of the Xeric Grant, Liew (My Faith in Frankie, Flight, Sense & Sensibility) is a wonderful cartoonist. These 5 stories center on Atari and Oliver, a couple of street urchins, and their adventures. The book also features pinups by Skottie Young, Mike Allred, and Roger Langridge. I have no doubt that you’ll be hearing about this book come award season next year. Be in the know.”

Planerds

There’s a new comic store in town, Planerds at the 4th level of 313@Somerset. Haven’t had a chance to drop by yet, but this review suggests it might be close to what the Million Year Picnic is in Boston; a well designed and stocked store with mainstream, manga and alternative titles.

There’ll be signings by local creators this Saturday, 7 May (Election day!). So do drop by if you have the inkling 🙂 A copy of their press release/info here!
