Attention Columbusites!

Do you have plans for this weekend? Well, if you're not already booked solid, then I'd suggest you check out this show.

And if for some reason you haven't already read Joshua Cotter's comic series on which the show is based, I'd suggest you visit one of your fine town's fine local comic shops (I used to use this one at least once a week) and buy it, read it and then attend the show.

What's that? Can't afford the $20 a copy of the collection will cost you? Or they don't have any copies in stock? Well, a quick looksee around the online catalogs reveals that the Columbus Metropolitan Library system has four copies of Skyscrapers of the Midwest in their collection, although it looks like they're all currently checked out. The Grandview Heights Public Library owns a single copy, which is currently available. The Upper Arlington and Bexley Public Libraries don't have any copies though.

I'll have much (much, much) more on the adaptation in the very near future, but in the meantime, I wanted to let you locals know this was going down starting this weekend so any of you who weren't aware wouldn't miss out on what looks to be a pretty cool comics-related event.
