People have been asking, so I thought I should give a short status update on Crickets availability. Currently you can get copies from Family and the PictureBox sites. Copies went out last week to Quimby's in Chicago, The Drawn & Quarterly and Fantagraphics stores in Montreal and Seattle, as well as Spit And A Half (go to that site-they have shit I didn't know you could find anymore, what an awesome resource), and Last Gasp. So it should be available any day now from those places. Shops that ordered it through Diamond get it next week on the 29th, if they are in the north east, and the rest of the world January 12th.
And that's that. The book is selling way better than I expected across the board. I have just over a hundred copies left. So that's good and surprising and humbling and oddly life affirming (retail has fucked me up). And it means I can do Crickets 4 in the same exact format if need be. I should get on that. These fucking things totally don't draw themselves!
And here are some bonus images from the ol' reference file for this otherwise useless post:
