For questions about mail-order please email:

We accept returns only if we made a mistake on your order, or if you’d like to trade something for a different size of the same item. You’ll have to cover the shipping. Email before sending something back to coordinate.

Submission policy:

If you self-publish your own comics, we’d love to check them out and consider them for our retail shop.
Please send an email with a link to a PDF (or some pictures), a short description, and pricing details to
Let us know a little about yourself too, including if you’re local. Include this form with your comics so we can pay you, but only after we’ve said yes.

We are NOT accepting unsolicited submissions for publication at this time because we are way to busy with everything else going on. We are always keeping our eyes open for exciting new books to publish, but keeping up with submissions has taken up way to much of our time and energy lately and makes us feel bad when we can’t respond to everyone.

Nearly everything we publish was originally self-published by the creator (and did well in our retail shop so we asked about doing a re-issue), or came by way of introduction from an artist we already work with.
If you are friends with an artist we work with, ask for an introduction, or send us a submission of something you’ve self-published for us to carry in the shop!

Retail Distribution: SCB Distributors (sells to Ingram, Baker and Taylor, Turnaround UK), Diamond Comic Distributors, Lunar Distribution, Birdcage Bottom Books, Radiator Comics, Spit and a Half, AK Press, Disburst, and our own direct wholesale.
