STAPLE! Registration Open!

When I’m not busy alienating both friends and strangers who have enough money to buy stuff like Rock Band, I’m helping with the organization of STAPLE!, a indie comics con here in Austin. 

Here is you STAPLE! news…

Hey everybody!

STAPLE! The Independent Media Expo is back for its
