Dire Comics is Source Point Press' newest retail partner!

We are proud to announce that the first comic book store in Howell Michigan, Dire Comics, is the newest in a growing list of retail stores that carry Source Point Press comics.

 Dire Comics is an amazing place to stop by and pick up comics and graphic novels. They are a firm believer in offering their customers amazing titles from smaller publishers as well as hard to find collectibles.

Not only is the owner, Kyle, a great guy that loves comics but he is dedicated to bringing the joy of comics to the Howell community. A great example of his dedication to the art form is that Kyle is organizing a comic convention in Howell that Dire Comics will be sponsoring.

Holliston: Friendship is Tragic

Official Press Release
Pre-orders Begin for Holliston: Friendship is Tragic

Source Point Press has announced the release date of the graphic novel “Holliston:Friendship is Tragic” will be October 26th and has opened up pre-orders for both readers and retailers.
The massive fanbase of the comedy/horror sitcom TV series Holliston, created by Adam Green (Hatchet, Frozen, Digging Up the Marrow), were thrilled when Entertainment Weekly announced that the fan-favorite TV show would be returning! But what can the fans do while they’re waiting for more Holliston episodes? They can read this brand new Halloween adventure featuring Adam Green’s beloved characters in their first graphic novel, Holliston: Friendship is Tragic!
Down on their luck wannabe filmmakers Adam and Joe want desperately to celebrate Halloween to the fullest, but their wallets say otherwise. When Adam finds a pre-paid credit card loaded with money, he decides to buy gifts for his friends Joe, Laura, and Corri from a mysterious shop full of rare items. Little does he know the card carried a terrible curse; one that will not only tear apart their friendships, but tear apart all of Holliston! Loaded with laughs, guest appearances, and horror movie references that fans of the show or just fans of great comics will all enjoy! Written by Greg Wright (Monstrous, Wild Bullets), edited by Travis McIntire (Up the River, Bayani and the Nine Daughters of the Moon), with pencils and Inks by Stephen Sharar (Up the River, Wild Bullets), and colors and letters by Joshua Werner (Zombie Rush Riot, Jack of Spades).
At this time, retailers are able to pre-order this exclusively through Source Point Press directly. “We’ve had great success working directly with stores,” says Source Point Press Art Director Joshua Werner, “which allows us to really get to know where our products are and allows us to better tailor our efforts to meet retailers’ needs.”

As of July 18th, Source Point Press has also opened up pre-orders on their website to customers as well two different options to choose from. “We’re all very passionate about this project, and we want to offer Holliston fans an option to get some bonus items if they choose,” says Source Point Press Editor-In-Chief Travis McIntire. Fans can pre- order the graphic novel by itself for only $4.99, a dollar less than the suggested retail price. Or for $9.99 their order will come with a sketch of a Holliston character drawn by comic book artist Stephen Sharar, as well as a mini-poster signed by the graphic novel’s creative team. “Also,” says McIntire, “we’ll be drawing four random names from the list of people who preorder, and they will be winning an original comic art page from the graphic novel.”  
“The cast of the show have all been incredibly supportive and we’ve had such a great reaction already from the fans,” says Joshua Werner. “We’re just as excited for you to read this, I assure you.” To pre-order Holliston: Friendship is Tragic go to www.SourcePointPress.com and click on the ‘Store’ tab.

Source Point Press rocked Great Lakes Comic Con last weekend in Warren, MI!!!!!!

Great Lakes Comic Con is one of our favorite conventions and we had a blast. The SPP crew sold a ton of books, made some great new fans, and connected with some old friends!

 Rich Bloom and Steve Sharar converse with this mystery bearded man, lol.

 Greg Wright is selling through hundreds of copies of Monstrous like a boss!

 We already had one pic of Steve Sharar but we decided to throw in another one for the ladies! Lol

 Comic readers of all ages become instant fans of Monstrous and it's author, Greg Wright!

Cameraman: Quick, Tric! Promote something!
Tric: Bamm!

You're never to young (or old) to love comics and to become an artist. Junior Source Pointer, Audrey, makes some quick sketches for fans. 

 No matter where you look at a comic convention, you're likely to see the SPP logo!

 We love the indie comic book community and we especially love to give back to it so we try to do as many panels as we can at conventions to help new indie creators.

 SPP is very excited to have author, Kasey Pierce, among our ranks and we were super-pleased to have her at the SPP booths to promote her new comic series, Norah. Available next month!

 Sometimes people line up just to look at our displays. Lol

Its a little known fact that SPP president, Travis McIntire, can actually grow his beard through meditation. Here we see him after a meditation session. "I just shaved this morning." McIntire commented. Lol
