Nostalgia and Comics calls out to cartoonists across the land :
The newly refurbished Nostalgia and Comics shop in Birmingham is encouraging small press comics creators to send in their zines and comics. This is great news, as decent shops that are welcoming to, and actually engaging with small press and indy creators are not only rare, but can have a hugely beneficial effect on the scene and artform. One word of encouragement, one extra comic sold, can make all the difference to someone who is just testing the waters... or to seasoned self-publishers for that matter.
Maybe one day, all comic shops will be judged by the size and range of their self-published section!
