BEST Batman Day 2018 EVER

BATMAN_DAY_logo_2018cropped_5b4e7428dd34b9.34359119.jpg

East Side Mags is celebrating everything Batman and we want to cordially invite you to celebrate with us!

We've got some great Batman-related stuff going on ALL DAY LONG including a very SPECIAL guest appearance by 2 comic legends!!!

We'll have some FREE Batman Comics that we're giving out all day (1 per customer)! A special re-print of Batman White Knight #1 and a special re-print of Batman: Lil Gotham Batman Day 2018 Special Edition #1 (for all ages)! 

We'll also have a variety of FREE Batman and Harley Quinn masks that we're giving out (1 per customer).

We are also PROUD to announce that the legendary Tom Raney and Scott Hanna will be joining us from 1pm-5pm.  Tom and Scott will be sketching for customers and we'll have blank cover comics available as well!

Scott has worked on so many DC and Marvel comics that we literally don't have enough storage space on the website to list everything but if you've read a Marvel or DC Comic anytime between 1990 (ish) and today, you've most likely seen his work.  He is a HUGE addition to our Batman Day event and we're super happy he's able to take the time to come hang out with us.

Tom Raney, over the past 20 years has spent his time predominantly at Marvel and DC, he’s drawn a bit of everything, from XMen to Batman. Superman to the Hulk. Notably, he’s revamped Stormwatch with Warren Ellis, the Outsiders with Judd Winick, co-created Threshold with Keith Giffen, and co-created Mutant X. While still producing work for Marvel and DC he recently drew Dread Gods, for Ominous Press.

To top it all off, we'll be playing Batman movies ALL DAY and we'll have some Batman Dollar Raffles going on as well! Stay tuned for details and available prizes for our raffles!
