OOPS! I can not read things it would seem. The Guillermo del Toro at Home with Monsters exhibit at the MIA runs until May 28th, nor March 28th as I reported last week. You can still call 612-870-3000 to get reservations. I went Sunday and found it to be a truly wonderful experience and a great way to support a top notch local museum. Comic portion of the exhibit is enough reason in itself to go. Also wonderful costumes and sculptures inspired by digital images from del Toro films.
Tim has some new info about back issue comis this week in Tim’s Corner.
the DC/Hanna Barbara Crosover comics hit this week. Adam Strange Future Quest Special #1, Booster Gold Flintstones Specail #1 and Suicide Squad Banana Splits Special #1 just to name a few. Also do not miss out on Jughead the Hunger One Shot. Treat yourself to Old Guard #2, we were so impressed with number 1 and can not wait to read the second issue. Oh yeah, X-Men Prime #1 Drops as well.
Wolverine is still dead.

Seppy Yoon – Chief Game Designer Fight in a Box
Escaping corporate America in 2014, Seppy’s been charging conventions and living the dream ever since.
Using their first title Squirrel or Die to fund community building, Fight in a Box was able to successfully launch their first kickstarter. End of the Line – post-apocalyptic family survival delivered three months early on its kickstarter promise.
Between conventions and game nights, Seppy spends his time working on FiaB’s next titles: the Inevitable Machine Revolt and Conquest Princess Pew Pew Pew.

the Chief Operating Officer of Atlas Games. He co-wrote (with Will
Hindmarch) Eternal Lies for Trail of Cthulhu, which won an ENnie for
Best Adventure. Other designs include the Origins Award-winning pirate coin game Pieces of Eight, the Fantasy Flight Games edition of Horus Heresy, and Doctor Who Time Clash. In marginally related nonsense, he published the social mini-game Band or Album with Kenneth Hite. Visit Jeff online at jefftidball.com. On Twitter, he’s @jefftidball.
Jeff will be running…

12:00p – Cursed Court
Play a pre-release version of Atlas Games’s new board game where players must wager limited influence, as they make deductions and predictions about which of nine nobles will control the court in the years to come. Cursed Court will come out in the fall of 2017.

He started designing games just a few years ago thinking that a bottle cap would be a neat board game component.

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.
