Zine launch photos!

On Friday we had the launch party for Two Fisted Librarians at Lucky's Comics! It was a successful event and lots of people came (thank you!). Also, much to my amusement, it turned out that the employee working there that evening is getting their MLIS from SLAIS. I had no idea!

People crowded into the shop!


Ean Henninger drove up from Washington state to read an excerpt from his piece from issue two!


Anna Ferri read an excerpt from her story in issue one!


Adena Brons read an excerpt from her story in issue one! (Though she also has a story in the second issue.)


And if you look in the background of the photos of people reading you can see two comic pages in the window. These are a submission for the third issue of Two Fisted Librarians! If you want to be included you should start writing now!

We're on Issuu!


In anticipation of our second issue coming out, I decided to put the first one up on Issuu! You can now read the entire thing if you haven't had a chance to before!

There are still copies of issue one available to buy if you want a print version! Send us an email, or wait until I put them up on Etsy again.

So why did we put it on Issuu? Well Ben Blacker, co-writer for the Thrilling Adventure Hour, Wolverine: Season One, Thunderbolts, and more, told me that I needed to put it online because that is "where people live".

So check it out!

Still time to submit to issue #2!

The deadline for submissions for issue #2 of Two Fisted Librarians is DECEMBER 31ST! You've still got lots of time to write about a shark who is also a librarian, draw a picture of the library that time forgot, or create a cataloguing method that drives people mad!

Sell Outs and Deadline Updates

We've sold out! Or rather, Quimby's Bookstore in Chicago has sold out of their copies of Two Fisted Librarians #1! However, they've asked for some more (double their initial order!), and they'll soon be arriving on store shelves.

In other news we've been so incredibly overwhelmed with school that even if we got everyone's submissions by Halloween, there is no possible way we'd be able to put the zine together any time soon. So the deadline for submissions has now been extended to DECEMBER 31ST! Yes! You get two additional months to get your contributions in, and we'll hopefully have a launch party at some point in January.

Send your submissions, questions, and awesome links to twofistedlibrarians@gmail.com.
