Internet Comic Sees Print as Holdable Comic

One of my favourite online comics ever (no, not Teenboat) has finally seen printing press', shop shelves and hopefully, your book shelf.

Yes, the Eisner Award Winning "Mom's Cancer" by Brian Fies, which started life out as a somewhat cathartic internet comic has been printed by Abrams Image Press.
The comic, which once again proves the versatility of the comic book medium and it's viability as a source of important literary material, is a graphic novel showing one family's true life struggle against metastatic lung cancer.


This is truly one of my favourite online comics, and breaks the mold as most online comics to print success stories are comical strip series such as "PVP" or "Penny Arcade". Whilst this novel should be available in all good comic stores, (priced £8 / $13), it probably won't be despite the fact it is available from their comic distributor.
Still, the good news is this book will be available from book stores everywhere in the world, and they tend to have a greater readership and catchment audience than your average comic-shop, so hopefully this book will far outsell the pithy 30,000 copies most comics sell on a monthly basis.

Of course, my shop Comic Connections will keep the book in stock for the remainder of its print run. But if you can't get to us, won't use our mail-order service or plain hate myself and Glyn, do yourself a favour and grab a copy from Amazon.
