Greetings! Snowmageddon will not stop comics…hopefully. Right now, our shipment is on time, but we’ll let you know if anything changes. What else? Oh! there was a music video filmed at the Source. Local band, “My Cousin Dallas”, filmed the video to their song, “I’M COOL”, and we’ll have links to the video when it gets through final editing. In the meantime, check out the band on Spotify and Youtube. Also, remember to check out “Overheard @ the Source Comics and Games” on our website and Youtube. Thanks!

VINEGAR TEETH #1 (OF 4)
As a human being, Artie Buckle is a grade-A schmuck. But he’s a pretty damn fine cop.

Thing is, there’s a danger far greater than cub scouts robbing banks . . . oh my! Across space and time lies a far greater threat, not only to Brick City but to the world! Holy crap! Can the two get past their differences and save the planet? Well, of course they can, but getting there is gonna be a helluva fun ride.
An epic genre mash-up: horror, humor, crime, and science fiction!
We see women all of the time around here, but they don’t always see each other. And so, join us for Shieldmaiden Sundays. We’re open 12-6 on Sundays and during that time, if you’re a lady nerd seeking to hang out with other lady nerds to chat comics and cosplay, play casual magic or table top games, or start an RPG campaign, this is your day.
Other events in the game room will proceed as normal, under our every day, general game room guidelines. Our intent is to provide the common time and space for women who have asked about how to find other female members of the community. In the event of a special, large event that occupies the game room for the day it will be on the store calendar and anyone on our staff will be happy to help you reserve space on another night if you wish.
