Didn't buy it on the stands when you had the chance? We have PEACE PARTY #1
and #2 (and photocopies of PEACE PARTY #0, if you're really curious) available. Professors, teachers, and librarians, ask for our educational discount. Available while supplies last.
Our stock of PEACE PARTY #1
and #2 (first edition—a collectors' item) is almost gone, so we've had to raise the price to $4.95. To save money, you may order a photocopy of PEACE PARTY #1 or #2 for $2.95. The photocopied PEACE PARTY #0 is still $2.95. Comics are mailed flat in plastic bags with cardboard backing, and autographed on request.
You also have the option of getting PEACE PARTY #1 and #2 (but not #0) on CD. The price for both is $2.95.

Magnets: Robot Mangler Order now!
Rob's first published comic book (PEACE PARTY #1 is his second) is a rib-tickling parody of MAGNUS: ROBOT FIGHTER. It's a comic so hard to find that we have to sell photocopies. If you like Rob's philosophical bent and, more important, his wicked sense of humor, you'll like this. One satisfied customer said, "WOW. Best Magnus parody ever. Brilliant."
Only $1.45 each. A 23-page, high-quality copy as good as the B&W comic itself. Includes two pages of the original script. Signed by the author.
More Indian comics Order now!
Get NFL SUPERPRO #6, perhaps the most stereotypical comic about Indians since 1990. This comic was so controversial that the Hopi reservation closed its ceremonies to outsiders after its publication. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll see how bad a Native-themed comic can be.
Only $9.95 each (because of its rarity). All comics are in fine or better condition and come bagged.
Get A HERO'S VOICE and DREAMS OF LOOKING UP, two full-color comics from the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe. The stories feature realistic, modern-day Indian children getting in touch with their Ojibwe roots.
Only $1.95 each. All comics are in fine or better condition and come bagged.
Get NATIVE HEART, Robby McMurtry's graphic novel about Cherokee folk hero Ned Christie. The best Native graphic novel I've seen in years.
Only $9.95 each.
