Cartoonist Jon Adams has created a comic strip called Graphic Novelty for the San Francisco art site Bold Italic featuring three local comic book retailers (and two retailers who have written columns for CBR): James Sime from Isotope Comics, Brian Hibbs from Comix Experience and Leef Smith from Mission: Comics and Art. The strip details Adams' comic store history and his impressions of the three shops.
"It’s four, free, full-color pages of autobio-journalism with a not-so-hidden cameo by artist Dave Johnson. (That last part may not be as appealing as it sounds once you see it.)," Adams said in an email. Go check it out.
