Comics distributor Diamond won't be shipping any new comics in the last week of December—so Indy Comic Book week is stepping in to fill the void. For the week of December 30, participating retailers promise to showcase independent titles on their new release shelves. Local shop Things From Another World is asking independent creators to send in submissions of their work—if the TFAW folks like it, they'll buy your comics to sell in their three stores and on their website. If you'd like your comic to be considered, send it to Things From Another World by Wednesday, December 16. Details here.
