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!

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!
