at the Moyer Rec Center in Annapolis, Maryland Saturday the 24th and Sunday the 25th. He'll have copies of RPC#1, 3 and 4 along with copies of his Grim Crew Comics books (Dead Future and Grim Furry Tales).

A Comic Book Blog has sent over their review of Reasonably Priced Comics #4, the very first to date!As always, they were very supportive and we sure appreciate it!You can see what Geoff Arbuckle had to say about the book here
Happy Thanksgiving to all our fellow Americans, and happy opening of the holiday shopping season for our friends abroad. It's been awhile since we updated, and since then a few things have happened, most notably the release of Reasonably Priced Comics #4.The below cover is the one for the published issue. Last update, we posted a similar cover but production issues prevented VOYAGA from returning for the final part of the first story arc. In its place, we found two stories from the RPC Vault to take its place. The issue is outstanding and more diverse than any other issue we've published so far.To entice you to check it out, digital copies are available on DriveThruComics this weekend for only 69 cents. That's 30% off of the normal digital price of 99 cents and less than a third of the price of a print issue!
Use this link
to take advantage of the sale on the digital copy. Good until the end of Saturday. The book is also available on Graphicly
for your preferred mobile device and in print at the usual place
.And be sure to let us know what you think!

Michael Roberts has been a very supportive of RPC since our inception and he's been kind enough to review our most recent offering.The "money quote":
The anthology series Reasonably Priced Comics
continues to be on of the best looking small-press indie anthologies out there. With three issues now available to the public, RPC
has solidified itself as an anthology that delivers quality material. And, trust me, I’ve read quite a few small-press books, and consistent quality is no easy feat.Thanks for the kind words, Michael! We really appreciate it.You can read Michael's review yourself here http://mwr.me/2011/08/10/review-reasonably-priced-comics-3/
and be sure to check out Michael's web comic "Next Door"!
It's come to our attention that our banner ads are getting an unusual number of multi-clicks from individual users and, while we're sure this was done with the best of intentions, we have to ask whoever is responsible to please cease. This comes from the advertising provider as it screws with their tracking and reporting.
Again, we're sure it wasn't done with anything but good will, but please cut it out.
Byron Brewer reviewed RPC#3 last night over at Cosmic Book News.
