The Why Louisville store was the first retailer to carry Bluegrass Brawlers when it was released in 2014. Why Louisville is gone, but I’m happy to say another Louisville original is now carrying the book.
The Nerdy Planet is a labor of love owned by Ken and Myra Daniels. Ken and Myra are the founders of Fright Night Film Fest and FandomFest, along with several other pop culture conventions across the United States. They love all things pop culture and know how to put on a big show with big names, but they also have a huge heart for up and coming artists, dreamers, writers, and filmmakers.
The vision for The Nerdy Planet goes far beyond selling comics, toys, games, and autographs. It’s already a destination for gamers, and it’s on the way to becoming a show place for other artists. Kentucky filmmaker Jerry Williams, a cult favorite on Roku’s INC channel, recently held a film showcase at the store, and more artists are lining up to take advantage of the space.
All this to say The Nerdy Planet is more than just the place where you can get a copy of Bluegrass Brawlers (and my first illustrated kids book Frank Jordan: Evil Snowman); it is becoming the go-to destination to support local artists, writers, and filmmakers as well as pick up the latest issue of Deadpool.
