George Perez is a comic book legend, and he’s still going strong today! We can never thank him for all the entertainment he’s given (and giving) us, but way can tell him how much his work means to us. Or, I guess, SHOW him. Thank you, Mr. Perez, and keep it up!
This Friday night @ Challengers!
Do you live in the Chicago land area? If so I’d love to see your face this coming Friday Sep 19th at CHALLENGERS Comics on 1845 N Western Ave, Chicago, Illinois 60647. Starts at 7:00pm and runs till 10:00pm but could run later.
Books will be on hand and will be your first chance to pick up…
Patrick from challengerscomics sent me this message today:
“What’s weirder than someone stealing the condoms of off “You’re So Sexy…”?
Me finding a condom WRAPPER stuffed behind the comic boxes we sell, right near your books. JUST the wrapper.”
Challengers is a well lit and very open comic book store. I cannot fathom what happened here.
Challengers Condoms + Conversation…?
Plucked from the 1960’s and thrust into 2014, here are the original, teenage X-Men! Scott, Jean, Hank, Warren and Bobby. And dig those spiffy new Stuart Immnen costumes! Great work, everybody! Bonus points for all (except Tom. Sorry, Tom).
We can’t make this because we’re open until 7pm, but there’s no reason YOU can’t go! And you SHOULD… right after you pick up this week’s new comics. And tell Isabella that Patrick says, “Hi!”
I’m doing an artist talk/workshop at the International School of comics called
How to Get Yourself Out ThereHow to Not Starve to Death. Please come it is FREE.
Bring your project ideas. There will probably be free time at the end for me to go around and talk to people one on one.

I will always listen to what Amy Reeder has to say, on any subject.
So many opinions on the interwebs these days! You guys know I tend to stay out of this stuff, but I actually have something valuable to say…or so I feel.
If you want to know my opinion on Milo Manara’s Spider-woman cover, I’m going to have to disappoint you and say I feel super divided on it. I…

I guess I should expect this… This is what we get for having crayons for kids to use so close to the couch. *sigh* (at Challengers Comics)
