OR – The Long Con #1 Signing

Bridge City Comics is excited to announce our release party for The Long Con #1 on Friday, July 13, 2018 starting at 6:00 PM, with writers and Portland locals Dylan Meconis and Ben Coleman in attendance! This event is free to the public.

Bridge City Comics will have copies of the first issue of The Long Con available for purchase (both the regular cover and variant cover) at this event for cover price! Meconis and Coleman will be on hand to sign your copies! Refreshments will be served free of charge.

About The Long Con:
Five years ago, a cataclysmic event obliterated everything within a fifty mile radius of the Los Spinoza Convention Center-including the attendees of Long Con, the world’s biggest (and longest) comic convention. But unknown to the outside world, the con-goers not only survived, they kept the convention going. When proof of their survival surfaces, reporter Victor Lai is sent to investigate-after all, he was covering the con that fateful day and escaped mere minutes before everything went kablooie… abandoning his nerdy pal Dez in the process. So clearly he’s the perfect person for the job, and he won’t get trapped inside like some kinda idiot. Right?

Rose City Comic Con 2018 Adds Marina Sirtis + Photo Ops Packages

Press Release:

Rose City Comic Con is happy to announce Marina Sirtis (Star Trek: The Next Generation) will be a special guest this year on SEPTEMBER 7 – 9, 2018! Marina Sirtis, Michael Dorn, and Gates McFadden now have a special Star Trek: TNG team photo-op that is available to pre-purchase while supplies last. Unfortunately, Jonathan Frakes will not be able to attend this year as he was called in to do some directing work. We hope to have him attend in future years and can’t wait to see what he’ll be creating.

David Tennant packages are going fast, and we will be announcing details for a very limited dual photo-op with him and John Barrowman next week. Please note that the upcoming package will be the only way to get the dual photo-op, but both guests will be doing individual photo-ops and autographs on Saturday and Sunday.

Don’t wait to pre-purchase Val Kilmer photo-ops and autographs. He will be attending all three days, but we’re expecting a lot of fans will want to meet such an incredible actor. So, start planning your weekend today.

For a short period of time, photo-ops and autographs for Robbie Coltrane were paused. They are back up and available through ShowClix for autographs or Epic Photo Ops for photo-ops.

We still have several more celebrity, voice actor, and comics guests to announce over the coming weeks, so stay tuned to our social media channels to get the latest news.

OR – Proxima Centauri/It Will All Hurt Release Party

Cartoonist Farel Dalrymple appears at Floating World Comics on Wednesday, June 13th at 5:00 PM to celebrate the release of – not one – but two new books that expand the ever growing world of Pop Gun War and The Wrenchies.

First is a brand new miniseries from Image Comics: Proxima Centauri. 4.243 light-years from Earth, the teenage wizard adventurer Sherwood Breadcoat is stuck in the confounding spectral zone on the manufactured dimensional sphere, Proxima Centauri, looking for escape and a way back to his brother while dealing with his confusing emotions, alien creatures, and all sorts of unknown, fantastic dangers. In this issue The Scientist H. Duke sends Sherwood on a salvage mission and gives counsel to the troubled boy in his charge.Proxima Centauri will be six issues of PSYCHEDELIC SCIENCE FANTASY ACTION COMIC BOOK DRAMA starring Sherwood Breadcoat, “The Scientist” Duke Herzog, Dr. EXT the Time Traveler, the ghost M. Parasol, Shakey the Space Wizard, and Dhog Dahog.

Also arriving is the graphic novel collection of It Will All Hurt. A weird, sad, silly, sketchy, and dreamy watercolor fantasy-action quest in which Alemendra Clementine and her crew of anti-social adventurers all come together on a psych-apocalyptic world to take down an evil wizard. This Eisner Award-nominated webcomic, originally serialized on Study Group Comics, began as a loose stream-of-consciousness exercise and exploration of the comic book medium and takes place in the same world as FAREL DALRYMPLE’s The Wrenchies. Collects IT WILL ALL HURT #1-3, plus all six chapters of the webcomic.
