The Underburbs has been one of the most popular titles here at ComiXpress, and for good reason: Joe Haley and TJ Dort have crafted a fun, funky, original book that looks great and is often laugh-out-loud funny. Couple that with the fact that these are dedicated creators who consistently knock out issue after issue and people start to take notice.

Tonight on the new episode of Cerebus TV, Dave Sim will be featuring The Underburbs in what promises to be an interesting look at the series. I hope you’ll join us for the show!

CerebusTV Episode 10 premiers tonight at 10pm at

icbw_comixpressHave you heard about Indy Comic Book Week? Diamond Comics Distributors will not be shipping new comics for the last week in December to retail comic shops. In response, a number of Indy Comic Creators decided to band together, using this as a call to action, a way to galvanize other Indy and self-publishing comic creators, and created This is a great group of creators we had the pleasure of meeting at SPX, and a fantastic event that we here at ComiXpress are thrilled to be able to support with the Indy Comic Book Week discount:

Starting today, any Creator placing a new print order or reorder for their comic book or trade paperback will receive 10% off the books on that order! All you need to do is mention “Indy Comic Book Week” in your order form and your discount will be applied when your books are invoiced. There are no minimum orders, and this discount is available for any print order placed during the month of December, so yes a single Creator can take advantage of this offer multiple times if they place multiple print orders over the course of the month! Ship dates on these orders will be calculated based upon when the order is placed, so if you need books in-hand for Indy Comic Book Week itself, please allow for ship times and make sure your ship date is set correctly when you place your print order. Discounts apply to new orders placed during the month of December and cannot be applied retroactively, and can’t be combined with any other discount or special offers. And don’t forget to mention “Indy Comic Book Week” when you place your print order to get your discount!
