I just wanted to take a second and mention that copies of the 2nd Branded in the 80s magazine, the special Micro-Magazine edition that I did specifically for Wizard World Chicago this year are now available for purchase online (as well as copies of the longer 1st issue.)  Just click on the picture of the books above, or at the top left of the page to order them through Indy Planet.  The micro-mag is only 8 pages long, but contains an exclusive (yeah I know, goofy isn’t it) article on Choose Your Own Adventure style books from the 70s and 80s.  All magazine purchases go directly to the upkeep of this site, so if you’re interested in supporting the Branded in the 80s project, by all means pick a copy of the books.

I thought I’d also take a second to mention that there are a few comic shops now carrying copies of Branded in the 80s:

A Comic Shop
114 South Semoran Blvd.
Winter Park, FL 32792
(407) 332-9636
(I talked to the owner and one of the guys who works in the shop and they seem like some really great people.  The shop is really nice and they stock some great stuff.)

Titan Games and Comics (Duluth, GA location)
2131 Pleasant Hill Road
Duluth, GA 30096
(770) 497-0202
(This has been one of my local shops since I moved to GA back in ’90, a mainstay.)

Criminal Records
466 Moreland Ave, NE
Atlanta, GA 30307
(404) 215-9511
(Great music and comic shop in the Little Five area of Atlanta, right next to Junkman’s Daughter.)

Bizarro Wuxtry
197 E. Clayton Street
Athens, Georgia 30601
(This is an awesome store in Athens run by the equally as awesome Devlin Thompson featuring all sorts of comics, magazines, books, toys, ephemera, and nostalgia goodness.  I can’t leave this place without dropping a bundle on stuff…)

Anyway, ending self-pimping transmission…
