It has often been posited that if only there wasn’t so much “spandex” flooding the racks, small press would have a better chance.

Larry Young has done well in the past with Brian Wood Month, and retailers have tons of customers with holiday $$$ and gift certificates to be spent, so who else wants to step up.
Here is your chance to grab back some retail rack space. Who has new work, solicited through Diamond or not, ready to roll?
Brian Wood (whose second DMZ trade collects seven issues for $13 – bargain!) and Jacen Burrows (talking up the new Avatar Garth Ennis book, Chronicles of Wormwood) are amongst the first creators to respond. Go see.
