Exciting news! You can now buy The Misfortune Cookie at Desert Island Comics in Brooklyn! This is an amazing step forward with getting the work of mindy indy out into the world! Desert Island is an independent comic store and has lots of wonderful indie creations. Thus, the perfect place for a home for The Misfortune Cookie!
How did this happen? I'd been to the store a few times and got to know the owner, Gabe, a bit. About a month ago I walked in with some of the Misfortune Cookie mini comics to sell there. He liked them, and he took 5 to see how they would do in the store. For such a small amount, we did a trade instead of going through lots of paperwork. (I got an Adventure Time comic for my 5 minis.) He put them in a space on the rack and voila! I went back to the store yesterday to see how many sold, and 2 were gone! I think that's pretty good, because Gabe said sometimes comics can be on the rack for months or years. Even though selling 2 seems like a small number, that's 2 more people I've reached that I couldn't have before :) It doesn't take much to make me happy.
So please stop by Desert Island Comics on 540 Metropolitan Ave Brooklyn NY 11211 and pick up a copy of The Misfortune Cookie! It's easy to miss walking down the street, though, because it looks like a bakery. There is no bakery there, but people never change signs in New York!
And now, your daily dose of daily misfortune!
