On September 8th through the 9th at the popular Baltimore Comic-Con StarWarp Concepts, an independent publishing house, will be attending for the first time. They are known for their graphic novels and fantasy books. Among the books they will be promoting are Blood Feud: The Saga of Pandora Zwieback book 1, Lorelei: Sects and the City and The Bob Larkin Sketchbook. I am not too familiar with StarWarp Concepts but they seem to have a good thing going and their style seems to be right up my alley. So keep an eye out for them if you are attending the Baltimore Comic-Con because you won’t want to pass them up.
Here is a press release they sent to Word of the Nerd:
