Locust Moon Closing Sale

Locust Moon Cover
Hello dears. Do you want incredibly awesome comics for embarrassingly cheap prices? Come to Locust Moon. We’re winding down our final days in the retail business, and we want to get our books into your hands before we mysteriously shutter our doors, Wonka-style.

First of all – ALL recent single issue comics are $1.  Every stapled comic that’s normally cover price is on sale for a measly buck. And outside of a handful of select books, all trade paperbacks are 10-50% off. Plus: our bounteous, already-dirt-cheap dollar boxes? Now those comics cost one shiny quarter.

And LITTLE NEMO: DREAM ANOTHER DREAM, the McCay tribute anthology that also functions as a buoyant surfboard, is at its lowest-ever limited time price of one hundred smackers.

So come raid our backstock for the holidays. And join us on January 8th for what’s sure to be a farewell party for the ages.

Just a month to go, friends. Let’s make it one to remember.

Biggest Sale, Littlest Nemo!

You know that LITTLE NEMO: DREAM ANOTHER DREAM book? The super giant one that was filled with legendary cartoonists and won all those Eisner and Harvey awards?

Remember how bad you wanted it, but how it was just a little bit out of your price range? How it seemed to dance, big and beautiful and filled with glorious broadsheet comics, just out of your financial reach?

Dream no longer, friends. In the spirit of holiday cheer and frenzied consumerism, we’re offering our magnum opus McCay tribute for its lowest-ever price of $100, down from the standard retail price of $150.

Just enter the order code “cyberlocust” at locustmoon.storenvy.com. And hey, while you’re at it, enter “locustbuddy” for 15% off all other merchandise. Do it before we come to our senses.

DRAWING ON LIFE
Comics based on real life are everywhere. From autobiographical memoirs to stories about historical events and people, we’ll discuss what makes these types of comics so appealing to readers and why so many cartoonists are drawn to real life subject matter. Moderator Kelly Phillips (Dirty Diamonds, Weird Me) hosts Craig Thompson (Blankets, Space Dumplins), Dean Haspiel (Billy Dogma, Beef with Tomato), and Andrea Tsurumi (Andrew Jackson Throws a Punch, Prometheus Eternal).
