Born in Cleveland, OH and raised in Northern New Jersey, Brigid Allanson is a graduate of  the Kubert School in Dover, NJ, class of 2012.  She is currently employed as an illustrator for the indie video game company AckkStudios.  She is also a freelance artist and is working her way into the comic book world.

Her game, YIIK, is a coloful 3D JRPG set in the 1990s, about 8 strangers, a mysterious woman who vanishes in an elevator and weaponized Panda plashes.

When recent college graduate Alex Eggleston returns home from college, he finds adult life to be filled with mystery, strange friends from the internet and other worlds that exist just out of sight!

In YIIK, journey across an expansive flat-shaded wonderland, rife with intricate puzzles, fast paced turn based 8 party-member battles, cat tossing, panda dropping, ladder throwing action!

Did we mention you could (still) win something?

East Side Mags is raffling off LIGHTSABERS!  You heard me right.

This is the weapon of a Jedi Knight.  Not as clumsy or as random as a blaster.  An elegant weapon...for a more civilized age.
-Obi Wan Kenobi

$10 cash buys you into the chance of a lifetime to win an authentic Jedi OR Sith lightsaber (SRP: $164.99) with the following features:

  • Realistic Light Effects
  • Authentic Movie Sound Effects
  • Real Metal Hilt
  • Display Stand

So make sure East Side Mags is on your agenda for Small Business Saturday.  Or Local Comic Shop Day.  Or Black Friday Weekend.  Or just Saturday (if you don't believe is cool names for things).
