Juke Joint and Bingo Love JACKPOT EDITION

Tee Franklin - an amazing friend of East Side Mags - makes her awesome return with a new ongoing comic and the JACKPOT edition of a fan-favorite!

Tee will be here from 1pm-5pm alongside letterer (and hardest working man in comics) Taylor Esposito to sign copies of their new ongoing comic - Jook Joint!

About Jook Joint (out NOW): Mahalia runs the hottest spot in all of 1950s New Orleans. The Jook Joint keeps the jazz popping, people bopping... and the women? The women are to die for. There's only one rule: "Keep your hands to yourself." But some men think rules don't apply to them, and Mahalia and her coven of slain women enjoy reminding them that they most certainly do.

We’ll also have copies of the Jackpot edition of Bingo Love featuring art by our VERY OWN FAMILY CHRISTOPHER WOLFFE! Yes - you heard it here first - Chris has been published in an IMAGE COMICS collection!

About Bingo Love: When Hazel Johnson and Mari McCray met at church bingo in 1963, it was love at first sight. Forced apart by their families and society, Hazel and Mari both married young men and had families. Decades later, now in their mid-'60s, Hazel and Mari reunite again at a church bingo hall. Realizing their love for each other is still alive, what these grandmothers do next takes absolute strength and courage. 

This Jackpot Edition contains over SIXTY PAGES of bonus material, including the talents of MARGUERITE BENNETT (Batwoman) and newcomer BEVERLY JOHNSON, SHAWN PRYOR (Cash and Carrie) and PAULINA GANUCHEAU (Zodiac Starforce), award-winning historical romance author ALYSSA COLE's comics writing debut with SHAE BEAGLE (MOONSTRUCK), GAIL SIMONE (CROSSWIND) and MARGAUX SALTEL (Superfreaks), and AMANDA DEIBERT (Wonder Woman '77) and CAT STAGGS (CROSSWIND), with illustrations from MEGAN HUTCHINSON (ROCKSTARS) and ARIELA KRISTANTINA (InSeXts). Plus a sneak peek of BINGO LOVE, VOL. 2: DEAR DIARY, with an afterword from GABBY RIVERA (America).

WOW! That’s a lot of awesome-ness! Make sure you come by and check out what one of today’s hottest indie writers is all about!
