Marc Arsenault Officially Announces Opening Of WowCool/Alternative Comics Retail Space In Cupertino


I'm not sure this link gets you to the press release or gets you lost in some half e-mail/half press release designation hell, but the information there seems solid: Marc Arsenault of WowCool/Alternative Comics has opened up a retail space in support of, and one would guess on a parallel track to, his publishing efforts. It's called "The Wow Cool | Alternative Comics Bookstore and Newsstand," it's located at 21607B Stevens Creek Blvd in the Monta Vista neighborhood of Cupertino, it will carry other types of counter-culture poublications and music-related merchandise in addition to comics, and it will be open Tuesday to Saturday, noon to 6 PM.

You can also get more information here.

Arsenault is a super long-time fixture in the arts-comics/small-press world, with a numnber of ties to cartoonists and comics-making efforts above and beyond those he finds himself doing through Alternative. His store looks like a fun place, part Reading Frenzy, part Fantagraphics Store, part Fallout Coimcs circa 1996. I wish him the best, and encourage potential customers to make it a stop on their Silicon Valley related comics odysseys.
