MI – The Neighborhood Watch Signing

Press Release:

Vault of Midnight Grand Rapids is excited to announce that Cody Flowers & Sean Cope will be visiting us for a signing and to promote their new indie series, The Neighborhood Watch.

Currently on its second issue, The Neighborhood Watch is a thrilling murder mystery and the first series by the creative duo, both Grand Rapids natives. We couldn’t be happier to give these comics a home on our shelves, currently available at all 3 of our locations!

When Nadia learns the criminals she has been putting away are being killed in their cells, she is determined to save the lives of her blog victims before their clock runs out…

Sean & Cody will be signing in the Grand Rapids shop on February 18th from 12:00 – 3:00 pm. Learn more about the series and stay up to date on the latest info by following The Neighborhood Watch on Facebook at facebook.com/TNWcomic
