Punks, Comics, and Feminist Zine Fest Pittsburgh

This was a surprisingly long weekend, even though it was only two days. I had multiple stops over the two-day span, which is why.

The first stop was Copacetic Comics Company, on Dobson Street in Pittsburgh. I was worried that I would have to pay for parking (because city life), but I found a space around the corner.

A while back I had called Copacetic to ask some questions about author appearances and consignments, and somehow I forgot that Bill (the man on the phone) said the store was on the 3rd floor of the building.

You’re only allowed a specified amount of time on all those blocked sites and then StayFocused kicks you off. It’s to help you stay productive at work and cut out distractions, which is especially handy for me since I work out of a home studio.
