Hello Everyone!

All herald the return of “I’m Glad You Asked”.  This week Lisa muses on a couple of her comic faves, touches on some new news out of ComicsPro, and brings us up to speed on what may prove to be an amazing chance to get the scoop on what is coming for rapidly approaching con season with the In Store Convention Kickoff, right here in the store March 5th.

We have two chances to hob knob with some of our favorite creators.  Wednesday February 24th from 4pm to 7pm Zander Cannon will once again be talking about the TPB release of his bigger than life comic Kaijumax Vol 1. Saturday brings author Ozgur K Sahin to the store with his new novel The Wrath of Brotherhood, the first book of a new series, Brethren of the Spanish Main. Ozgur will be signing from 10am to 6pm.

Wolverine is still dead.

I’m Glad You Asked
by Lisa
My picks for the week are two books I have talking endlessly about for months: Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur #4 and Faith #2. Moon Girl is a funny, genius, sassy main character and Devil Dinosaur responds much like a giant puppy to her. It’s adorable and there are few series I’m extremely excited about a long future for. The other book I love is Faith #2. If you haven’t picked up our Faith #1 Retailer Exclusive cover with art by the phenomenal Stephanie Hans you’d better get on that before con season starts. Once we take those to conventions stock will run low. Only 500 were printed.
More than the totally awesome cover though, Faith is ultimately a comic that requires no prior knowledge and drops you into LA with Faith, who has started a new job at a Buzzfeed type website and LOVES being a superhero. She was a geek before she got her powers, so her powers are not a traumatic, dour, trial: they are awesome, she loves them, and the vibe of the whole comic is just buoyant. Of course there’s mystery and action and an ex-boyfriend abound, what’s a comic without that stuff, but the point is it feels fresh. She’s a different kind of superhero repping a whole new group of humans who have not seen themselves in comics before. That’s always a victory.

ComicsPro happened this last weekend on Portland, and Bob and Hans were there, texting with me and Chad back in the office, about all of the goings on. I loved the speech that Eric Stephenson (Image Comics) gave flatly telling customers, retailers and publishers not to participate in business or creative practices that damage the comic book industry’s chances of growing and prospering long term. It’s very much worth a read. Image had another big announcement with their own 44 page insert for Previews Magazine. The first several months will be coming with original Kirkman stories about the origin of The Walking Dead’s Neagan so pay attention if you want that. And if you haven’t heard the news about DC’s summer event called “Rebirth” yet, Google that. Action Comics and Detective comics will return to their original numbering and the lineup will change across the board. (DC comics is also planning on a stand alone magazine in the June 2016 Previews to raise the excitement- Chad)

That’s a lot of tidbits of information. If you don’t want to read the articles online about this stuff then come to the Convention Kick-Off Event on March 5th. It’s an all-day livestream that can only be seen at participating retailers and will contain presentations from all of the big comic book companies about what they have in store for the next year. It should be pretty cool and we’re going to have local creators in too so you can start getting your ConFix early and in friendly doses. Did I mention the exclusives variants? You should probably check out the official website at conventionkickoff.com and then RSVP to our Facebook event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/1021793544545091/ to get more updates.
