Hey, this Matthew Sturges feller has a lot of comics coming out this week. So we rang him up and asked if he’d like to spend New Comics Day at ABC. With a resounding “Sure,” he was in.
So stop in this Thursday from 5 to 7pm to get your copy of JSA All-Stars #1, Jack of Fables #40, and/or House of Mystery #20 signed by DC/ Vertigo’s writing dervish. We bet he’d sign previous volumes of Jack & House, or his novel Midwinter, too!
