Harley Quinn Day

Harley Quinn is taking over Batman Day this year!  Come by East Side Mags and celebrate all things Batman, er, I mean HARLEY QUINN.  

We've got Kubert School artists, Batman, er, I mean HARLEY QUINN raffles, free give-a-ways and more surprises in store!

Meet Brian Benjamin.  Brian is a Queens based artist who is currently at his final year at the Kubert School, with dreams of becoming DC's top artist.

Joining Brian is Dillon Snook.  Dillon was born and raised in New Jersey, and has recently decided to dive headfirst into the business of comic art. He is a student entering his final year at the Kubert School, equal parts nervous and eager to get out into the business. Heavily influenced by comic artists and fine artists alike (John Singer Sargent, Jorge Zaffino and Alex Toth to name a few…), Dillon has been drawing since he can remember, mostly to compete with the attention his older brother and fellow artist got when creating. Above all, he just wants to deliver some high quality sketch covers for people who love Harley Quinn.

And to top it all off - Rusty Gladd will be joining us as well!  Rusty is from Northern New Jersey and a third-year student of the Kubert School, where he studies comic book art alongside his friend Brian Benjamin and their talented classmates. He's inspired by Old masters such as Wally Wood and Al Williamson, and modern artists Tony Moore, Scott Koblish, and Ryan Ottley to name a few. Upon graduation at the Kubert School, Rusty will be pursuing a career in comics.

Brian, Dillon and Rusty will be here from 1pm-6pm.  Buy a sketch cover, get a FREE pencil sketch.  You can also upgrade to inks and/or full color for an additional charge - paid DIRECTLY to the artist!  Support your comic shop and local artists at the same time!

We've got FREE copies of three (3) different Harley Quinn comics that will be available!  Customers that come by for Harley Quinn Day can choose from the following free comics (while supplies last):

BATMAN DAY 2017 SPECIAL EDITION #1 reprints BATMAN #16, the first chapter of "I Am Bane," written by Tom King with art by David Finch. This issue's cover art is by Ryan Sook and features Batman and Harley Quinn in an homage to THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS #1.  This issue also includes a new, three-page original story written by Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti with art by Bret Blevins! (Rated T)

 

HARLEY QUINN BATMAN DAY 2017 SPECIAL EDITION #1 reprints HARLEY QUINN #11, the first chapter of "Joker Loves Harley," written by Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti with art by John Timms and a cover by Amanda Conner. (Rated T+)

 

DC SUPER HERO GIRLS BATMAN DAY 2017 SPECIAL EDITION #1 features a chapter of the upcoming all-ages original graphic novel DC SUPER HERO GIRLS: OUT OF THE BOTTLE, starring Harley Quinn and written by Shea Fontana with art by Marcelo DiChiara and Agnes Garbowska and a cover by Yancey Labat. (All Ages)

We've also got HARLEY QUINN herself who will be stopping by!  Come meet Harley and take pics with her, ask her about Poison Ivy, the Joker, that time she narrowly got away from Batman himself or even what that awful acid tastes like - EW!  She'll be hanging out from 1pm-5pm!

Crime Noir with Thomas Pluck

Friend and loyal customer, Thomas Pluck is a crime noir novelist, living right here in Essex County!  Thomas has 2 books out so far and has even worked with Alex Segura of Archie Comics!

Thomas Pluck has slung hash, worked on the docks, trained in martial arts in Japan, and even swept the Guggenheim museum (but not as part of a clever heist). He hails from Nutley, New Jersey, home to criminal masterminds Martha Stewart and Richard Blake, but has so far evaded capture. He is the author of Bad Boy Boogie, his first Jay Desmarteaux crime thriller, and Blade of Dishonor, an action adventure which BookPeople called “the Raiders of the Lost Ark of pulp paperbacks.

Thomas has a great sense of humor and, based on the bio you just read, leads a super-interesting life!  Come by between 1pm and 6pm, meet Thomas, pick his brain and grab a really great novel from a really great guy!

TMNT Signing with Rich Douek

Local comic writer (seriously, the guy lives 3 blocks away) Rich Douek has written an issue of TMNT Universe and it comes out end of June/July and to celebrate, Rich is coming by the shop to sign copies and talk about Ninja Turtles with the fans!

Rich Douek is a writer, copywriter, and graphic designer working in New York City. He has written comics for Comixtribe, Red Stylo Press and IDW Publishing, and helmed award-winning advertising campaigns for clients such as Snickers, FedEx, and Foot Locker.

He is the creator of Gutter Magic, an urban fantasy series that he is continually working to expand upon, as well as several other creator-owned properties in various stages of development.

Rich spends most of his time writing, and the rest of it thinking about writing, much to the chagrin of his wife and children, who nevertheless tolerate and support his mad dreams of making a living by putting words on paper.

Meet Rich, get a copy of TMNT Universe #11 and hang out with a creative super man and rising Montclair legend!
