-East Side Mags

It's Batman Day again and East Side Mags is throwing a pretty massive party!  We've got star-studded comic guests, raffles, give-a-ways and so much more we don't even know where to start!  So let's start here:

We'll have copies of Batman Rebirth #1 featuring variant cover art by Howard Porter!  We will be giving these away for FREE w/purchase (while supplies last) as soon as we open the doors or you can choose a limited edition Suicide Squad mini-poster that was ONLY available at Heroes & Villains Fan Fest in Secaucus, NJ (also while supplies last)!

For your sketching and signing pleasure - we are SUPER EXCITED to announce that we'll be hosting Fernando Ruiz (artist for Archie, Die Kitty Die*) and Charles Paul Wilson III (artist for Stuff of Legend, TMNT, Wraith)! Both of these fine gentlemen will be hanging out, signing copies of their various works and sketching on blank comic covers for our customers!  The fun goes from 1pm-6pm!

*Of special note - as supporters of Fernando's and Dan Parent's Kickstarter and new project - Die Kitty Die - we are the proud owners of exclusive Kickstarter hardcover collections of all 4 issues of Die Kitty Die with exclusive content ONLY found in this book which is also signed by both gentlemen with a black & white sketch inside and an exclusive cover drawn by Darwyn Cooke!

We've also got out famous $1 raffles with a variety of prizes including (but not necessarily limited to):

  • Batman & Robin XL Dorbz
  • Official Suicide Squad movie poster courtesy of Bowtie Cinemas
  • Batman 75th Anniversary action figure 4-packs
  • Vinyl poster/flag of Batman from the Montclair Art Museum
  • and more to come!
