Artner-in-crime Kyle Burles and I canvassed all across Calgary to get our books into stores last week, and I will now share with you the stores that carry them!
But first, for you DIGITAL enthusiasts, all digital versions of our comics are currently available through IndyPlanet.com at: http://www.indyplanet.us/?s=Michael+McAdam — But look for an announcement about that coming soon!
CALGARY COMIC STORES: (From North to South)
2610 Centre St NE, Calgary, AB T2E 2V4
Jay and Rob are great guys! Very knowledgeable and helpful and pro-indie!
424 10 St NW, Calgary, AB T2N 1V9
Penny or John are usually working. Penny has great advice and is so helpful at getting your indie stuff on the shelves!
Redd Skull Comics
720A Edmonton Trail NE, Calgary, AB T2E 3J4
Kelly is a wise man when it comes to indie comics. He helped us understand what retailers are looking for in indies, just as what we creators should expect from comic stores.
Phoenix Comics Inglewood
1325 9 Ave SE, Calgary, AB T2G 0T3
Okay, you all have to harass Trevor to get his Indie section up and running. The problem is he doesn’t have a system for local creators yet, and we all need to get on him so he can get on it! Let’s all get our books in there, people!
7005 18 St SE, Calgary, AB T2C 1Y1
Chris the owner is often talked about as being a great friend to the local creators. I found this to be true!
That’s right, Two Gargoyles has launched its very first t-shirt on Teepublic.com, and it’s THUNDER! There are also other great products like phone cases and travel mugs with this design, but RIGHT NOW, the T-shirt is on sale for only $14.00! Normally, it’s $20.00! So buy now, and wear with Canadian Superhero pride!
I was recently asked to be a guest, for the second time, on the fantastic Gargoyles Reawakening Podcast. Hosts Lisa and Karell are fantastic ladies, and asking myself and artist Mike Rieger to play off each other as guests just makes everything much more fun (for us, anyway!)
We discuss the Season 1 episode, “Deadly Force,” and talk about story elements and fandom and whatever else comes into our minds. And you can actually SEE us as well as hear us, thanks to the magic of Skype. Give us a listen, and if you enjoy, please subscribe to the podcast!

Happy Shopping, and a tip ‘o the hat to you!
I will be exhibiting at the Calgary Red & White Expo this weekend on Sunday, September 11th. Details are on the website at http://www.comicandtoy.ca/shows-list/2016/9/11/fall-comic-toy-expo !
It’s a one-day-only show, smaller and more intimate than the other Expo-type shows I exhibit at, but the great thing is that gives me more time to connect with fans and the fans, more time to browse without feeling hurried or rushed or intimidated by crowds. It’s a real feel-good atmosphere for everyone and I always love being at this show!
I’m launching some new items this month, including copies of Gloaming #2, and a special convention edition of Spectrum #1!
Other new merchandise at the con will include: Krampuspresso buttons, and a new corporate-logo button: GARBUCKS. That’s right, Gargoyles have taken over your local Starbucks and re-branded it. If you like green apron coffee and supernatural creatures, you’ve simply got to stop by the Two Gargoyles table at the Expo.
And hey, remember your ABC’s– you know my Superhero Groins and Superheroine Boobs posters? Well now, I’ve made a deck of playing cards– that’s right, playing cards– all 52 guy and gal parts now adorn a deck you can play with!
Also, don’t forget there will be scads of poster prints available as well as stickers and magnets! Come on down and see– doors open at 10 a.m. and the show runs til 5!
