Comic Creators Wanted

Do you live in the southern Illinois region (you can define what that is) and produce a print comic? If so, we would be interested in carrying your comic in the store. Over Eclipse Weekend we had several requests for comics produced by local creators indicating this is a niche that could be filled. We are primarily interested in all-ages and PG material but will look at R rated books as long as  they are clearly marked as such on the cover.
