We're on Issuu!


In anticipation of our second issue coming out, I decided to put the first one up on Issuu! You can now read the entire thing if you haven't had a chance to before!

There are still copies of issue one available to buy if you want a print version! Send us an email, or wait until I put them up on Etsy again.

So why did we put it on Issuu? Well Ben Blacker, co-writer for the Thrilling Adventure Hour, Wolverine: Season One, Thunderbolts, and more, told me that I needed to put it online because that is "where people live".

So check it out!

Still time to submit to issue #2!

The deadline for submissions for issue #2 of Two Fisted Librarians is DECEMBER 31ST! You've still got lots of time to write about a shark who is also a librarian, draw a picture of the library that time forgot, or create a cataloguing method that drives people mad!

Send your submissions, questions, and awesome links to twofistedlibrarians@gmail.com.

Sell Outs and Deadline Updates

We've sold out! Or rather, Quimby's Bookstore in Chicago has sold out of their copies of Two Fisted Librarians #1! However, they've asked for some more (double their initial order!), and they'll soon be arriving on store shelves.

In other news we've been so incredibly overwhelmed with school that even if we got everyone's submissions by Halloween, there is no possible way we'd be able to put the zine together any time soon. So the deadline for submissions has now been extended to DECEMBER 31ST! Yes! You get two additional months to get your contributions in, and we'll hopefully have a launch party at some point in January.

Trading Cards! #003

To thank our super awesome contributors to issue one we made them super sweet trading cards based on their bios. (And just so you're aware, the contributors got actually physical trading cards, not just digital images.)

Of course, nobody actually submitted a bio, so we used theyfightcrime.org, which apparently has gone down since the zine was originally made. Here's an archive.org mirror, it won't generate anything new, but you'll see what it was like.

Anyway, here's the third (and final for now)! Irina Jevlakova wrote Victoria Dexter and the Mechanical Library.



What will we do for future contributors? Who knows! But you should make sure to submit something before the October 31st deadline if you want to find out!
