You can help keep HU’s benefactors running and get a deal on exciting comics as well by participating in Fantagraphics’ 20% off everything on the website sale. Not to harp on this, but…I had to find out about this sale from Tom Spurgeon’s website, and there’s no mention of it on the Tcj.com page either. […]
