    SpazDog Comics Hosts 27 Comic Creators For Indy Comic Book Week Signing

    Every year comic book fans have the holiday blues. Due to the UPS holiday shipping schedule, comics get delayed. For the first time in recent history, new comic books won’t ship on the last week of the year. While some comic book shops threw their hands up in outrage, local comic book shop, SpazDog Comics, saw it as an opportunity to spotlight all of the local comic book creators who get lost in the shuffle the other 51 weeks of the year.

    On December 30th from 11am to 5pm, they will be hosting an Indy Comic Book Week signing (www.indycomicbookweek.com). 27 comic book creators from all over Arizona will be signing and selling their latest comic book creations.

    For Eric Esquivel and Dave Baker, it’s the first signing that they are doing for their new graphic novel, Horrible Little People outside their homebase of Tucson. They aren’t the only Tucson residents who are making the trip to participate in our Indy Comic Book Week Signing. Jonnie Allen, Ken Wright, Maggie Wright, Eric Schock and Taylor Garrity are all making the trip. Other Arizona out of town guests includes DC freelance artist Dave Beaty and Micah Stewart from Prescott. They are joined by 20 other Phoenix area comic book creators who want readers to set down Superman and Spider-man for a day and read one of their comics.

    SpazDog Comics owner, Shawn Demumbrum, even got into the spirit of Indy Comic Book Week. One of my customer’s who is an artist asked me to take his idea and write a story said Shawn. The 8 page mini comic that he and artists, Ernie Najera and Derrick West, created will be available on December 30th. In addition to the local artist’s comic books, SpazDog Comics will have a huge assortment of independent comic books for sale from across the country and Canada created by participants in Indy Comic Book Week.

    SpazDog Comics located at 21610 N. 35th Avenue on the southwest corner of 35th Avenue and Deer Valley Road near the junction of I-17 and Loop 101. SpazDog Comics will be open from 11am until 8pm! With creators appearing until 5pm.
