If you would rather pick up a copy of Drop Target #5 in person, you will have two opportunities to do so this month: 1) Our amazing center spread artist Ryan Claytor will be at the Small Press and Comics Expo this weekend (April 13th and 14th) in Columbus, Ohio. 2) I will be at the Stumptown Comics Festival on April 27th and 28th in Portland, Oregon. I will have all five issues of Drop Target available, so swing on by!
Also, a heads up for those of you who are collector-types... There are only about 25 copies left of the first printing of Drop Target #2 (with the full-color center spread and a screenprinted cover on colored paper). After those are gone, they're gone! We will then make a second printing, similar to the second printing of DTZ #1 with a grayscale center spread and a black and white cover, with a $4 cover price. You have been forewarned!
Okay, well, we know this issue took a long time to make, but we really think it is going to be worth the wait. At 64 pages, it is our longest issue yet!
