The squeak of the spinner rack. The flip-flip-flip of fingers going through back issue bins. Expensive vintage books suspended inside their clear prisons. Wednesday Warriors gathered at the monolithic wall of new releases. A child's excited query of "Can we please get this?" A debate at the front counter about who's stronger, who's faster. Maybe there are T-shirts and toys and other collectibles; maybe this space is so filled by comics — in bins, boxes, stacks — that there aren't three feet of room to spare for anything else. Maybe that wide-eyed new customer doesn't buy anything today, but just wanders, remembering, for a few minutes, the joy of when they used to read those things. These aisles contain magic. Welcome to Meanwhile... A Comic Shop Anthology. To celebrate this beloved medium and the stores that showcase it, we've assembled an 80 page anthology of short comics and pinups by a diverse group of creators telling the stories that reflect their unique voices and experiences as not only comics creators, but consumers. Reading this throwback to the old "80 Page Giants" of yesteryear might be akin to browsing an actual comic store — you'll find superheroes, adventure, humor, horror, science fiction, manga, and some stories that defy easy categorization. Meanwhile... A Comic Shop Anthology is an 80-page perfect bound comic book, with a 12 pt. gloss cover and 70 lb. uncoated interior pages, with stories and art in full color, single color, and black & white.
