Celebrate Ayun Halliday Day 2016



Ex-Circulation Manager Jambo has asked me to tell all you nice people that the VERY BEST way you can observe Ayun Halliday Day tomorrow would be to buy a zine.

If you have never read an issue of The East Village Inky, March 29 would be a particularly auspicious day to order a back issue, subscribe, renew a lapsed subscription or lay a gift sub on an unsuspecting friend.

Or venture into the unknown by ordering one of the hundreds, nay thousands of titles by my fellow travelers. Go straight to the source on etsy, or support one of the independent book and zine sellers who have supported the Inky over the years. Take yer pick:

Quimby’s Bookstore,
Atomic Books,
Fantagraphics Bookstore and Gallery,
Women & Children First Bookstore,
Bluestockings Bookstore, Café, & Activist Center
Microcosm Publishing
Parcell Press
Birdcage Bottom Books
MonkeyWrench Books
City Lights Bookstore
Meltdown Comics and Collectibles

If you can’t browse in person, order online. That’s what the Internet’s for, son!

Take to social media and tell us what you got. Virtual zine party March 29, wahoooo!!!

Cat Vs. Radiator

Thanks to Narratively for publishing one of my all-time favorite stories in comic form. (Not quite so funny while ex-Circulation Manager Jambo and I were living through it)
