A Win-Win Call for a Little Help -- Dorian at Post-Modern Barney makes a timely request for a little extra purchasing at your local comics shop this week, as a confluence of events conspires to make money tight for most comics dealers: Having to pay for their Free Comic Book Day books (that's right, they're not free for the dealers, and the smart ones order a lot of 'em), the end of the tax year, and a heavy load of Marvels and DCs this week all mean now would be a good time for you to spend just a little extra at the shop: Why not pick up that TPB or HC you've been sitting on the fence over? Or try a batch of new titles you've heard are good but haven't taken the plunge on yet.

Here's what I recommend you spend a little extra dough on this week:

BLUESMAN Book One (Absence of Ink)
Project Superior (AdHouse Books)
Or Else #1-2 (Drawn and Quarterly)
Process Recess: The Art of James Jean (AdHouse Books)
Outlaws, Rebels, Freethinkers and Pirates (Fantagraphics Books)
Strangehaven Volumes 1 and 2 (Abiogenesis Press)
Street Angel #1-5 (Slave Labor Graphics)
Bipolar #1-5 (Alternative Comics)
American Elf (Top Shelf)
From Hell (Top Shelf)
Diary of a Mosquito Abatement Man (La Mano)

Those should all be in stock or easily ordered through any good comics shop (and you could offer to prepay in full if you have to special order, to give the maximum benefit to your dealer now). If you're still unsure, most of them have been reviewed here at Comic Book Galaxy, so do a little research, write up your list of likely purchases, and go do some good at your local comics shop. You'll come away with some great reading material, and your shop will be a little stronger as they get set to celebrate Free Comic Book Day. Everybody wins!
