Destroy Charlie's Angels Signing

Don’t let the name fool you! We’re HUGE fans of both these books!

Join us for a really special signing featuring SHE SAID DESTROY writer Joe Corallo and the creative team behind Dynamite’s Charlie’s Angels/Bionic Woman - Cameron Deordio (writer) and Soo Lee (artist)!!!

We’ll have copies of both comics for everyone to sign, sketch and deface as per customers’ specific instructions! :)

Join us from 1pm-5pm and meet some really amazing comic creators!!!

About She Said Destroy: Over millennia, Brigid, Goddess of theSun, has conquered and converted the entire solar system into worshipping her and her alone, save one space colony. The witches of Fey are the last believers of The Morrigan, Goddess of Death, Brigid's sister and the only other God left. As Brigid's forces prepare for one final battle, The Morrigan prepares to do what she does best: Destroy!

About Charlie’s Angels/Bionic Woman: When Charlie's Angels pick up an assignment to steal a dangerous patent and put it back in the hands of its mysterious inventor, they encounter their toughest counterspy yet: The Bionic Woman, Jaime Sommers. This new series follows two of television's top teams after their programming run and into the 1980s. When the Office of Scientific Investigation is privatized and its patents sold off to the highest bidder, a military contractor looks to take bionics to the battlefield. Will the Bionic Woman be able to protect the patent from the would-be thieves, or will the Angels prevail, mothballing the formula's military applications in favor of medical uses?

Wailing Blade & Road of Bones Signing

Hometown hero Rich Douek is having one hell of a year! He’s a Montclair-based writer with not one but TWO new comics coming out in the span of a month!

First up, we have Wailing Blade #1 from Comixtribe! With art by Queens-based Joe Mulvey, this book is sure to hit your sci-fi / fantasy spot! About Wailing Blade #1: The Headtaker, feared executioner and wielder of the legendary Wailing Blade, kills every man who meets his gaze. And, right now, he's looking at Tychon, an upstart bandit prince fighting to save his father from the chopping block. An oversized first issue with so much skull-splitting action, you're guaranteed to lose your head over it!

Next up, we have Road of Bones #1 from IDW! Mixing horror, history and Russian folklore, this comic is a new story that is sure to appeal to a wide audience! About Road of Bones #1: In 1953, the Siberian Gulag of Kolyma is hell on Earth-which is why Roman Morozov leaps at the chance to escape it. But even if they make it out, Roman and his fellow escapees still have hundreds of miles of frozen tundra between them and freedom. With the help of a mysterious being straight out of his childhood fairy tale stories, Roman just might make it-or is the being simply a manifestation of his brutal circumstances driving him insane?

Rich and Joe will be here signing comics from 1pm-5pm. Joe will even be sketching for customers!

Who knows? Legend has it that an “actual” Wailing Blade exists and it “might” just make an appearance here in the shop! ;)
