Carmine St. Comics

From my old MoCCA friends on Facebook I just learned about today’s grand opening of New York’s newest comic book shop, Carmine Street Comics!  It’s going to be an all-day affair, from 10 to 10, with special guests like writer Brian Wood, artist Declan Shalvey, comics scholar Arlen Schumer, and my friend, cartoonist Mindy Steffen, popping in throughout the day.

I’m not super-familiar with this part of town, so the write-up on the Vanishing New York blog helped contextualize it.  Sounds like it was the old Beat stomping ground, and is just now undergoing some heavy gentrification…  But Carmine Street Comics will be renting space from local landmark Unoppressive, Non-Imperialist Bargain Books, so joining the fight to keep Carmine Street funky (incoming IHOP notwithstanding).

For more information on the opening day festivities, visit their Facebook event page, and mark your calendars for Free Comic Book Day this Saturday, May 4th!
