Greg Rucka, Rick Burchett, and Eric Newsom sign at Bridge City Comics on Saturday, April 5, 2014 from 5:00 till 8:00 pm!

Press Release:

Bridge City Comics is proud to announce our Lady Sabre Kickstarter Release Party with Greg Rucka, Rick Burchett and Eric Newsom on Saturday, April 5, 2014 from 5pm – 8pm! This event is free to the public.

If you live in the Pacific Northwest, this is your opportunity to pick up your Lady Sabre Kickstarter rewards directly from the creative team! If you are a backer and want to pick up your book in person, maybe hang out and chat for a while or simply point and stare, you are cordially — even eagerly — invited to come and do so. Greg, Rick and Eric will be on hand to hand out the backer rewards, sign any rewards you want and hang out and talk lady Sabre (among other things).

Depending on the final inventory count, and presuming that they have enough extra to justify it, there may be additional copies for sale, prices TBD.

Refreshments will be served free of charge. Sketches will be at the discretion of the artist.

About LADY SABRE:
Swords are cool. People fighting with swords are cool. Airships are cool. Cowboys are cool. Pirates are cool. Clockwork men are cool. Smart, savvy, witty women are very cool. Laconic gunslingers? Totally cool. Steampunk? Frosty. That’s what Lady Sabre & the Pirates of the Ineffable Aether is, that’s what it’s about. The adventures of the Lady Seneca Sabre and those she meets along the way as she travels the Sphere. Who she fights, who she foils, who she befriends. It’s about adventure and romance and excitement and, to paraphrase the great Zaphod Beeblebrox, “really wild things.” And most of all, what it’s supposed to be? It’s supposed to be fun.

OR – Twin Peaks Art Show

2p_fwc

Pia Guerra, Dan Goldman, Jim Agpalza, Andreis Costa, and Matt Haley appear at Floating World Comics on Thursday April 3th from 6:00 – 10:00 pm!

RSVP on Facebook!

Press Release:

Join us Thursday, April 3 for an evening of art, pie and the best damn coffee around! We’re celebrating the 25th anniversary of the cult-classic TV series “Twin Peaks” with a group art show created and curated by ardent fans and professional illustrators!

“Twin Peaks” became one of the top-rated shows of 1990 and was a critical success both nationally and internationally. It captured a devoted cult fan base and became a part of popular culture that has been referenced in television shows, commercials, comic books, video games, films and song lyrics. Declining viewer ratings led to ABC’s insistence that the identity of Laura’s murderer be revealed midway through the second season. The series was followed by a 1992 feature film, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me, which serves as a prequel to the television series.

Artists featured in this show include “Y: The Last Man” artist Pia Guerra, noted collage artist Andreis Costa, “Red Light Properties” creator Dan Goldman, rock poster artist Justin Hampton, Eraserhead Press cover artist Jim Agpalza, DC Comics artist Matt Haley. Their original art will be for sale, and a portion of the proceeds will benefit The Pixie Project, a local non-profit animal adoption center and rescue.

Dark Horse Announces Exclusive Emerald City Comicon 2014 Variants

SerenityBuffy VEIL1 ECCC WITCHER #1 CVR VAR

 

Press Release:

Dark Horse Announces Exclusive Emerald City Comicon Variants!

MILWAUKIE, OR, MARCH 13—As the pop culture world gears up for Seattle’s Emerald City Comicon, Dark Horse announces not one, not two, not even three, but four variant covers for this year’s show!

The first few months of 2014 will see some of Dark Horse’s biggest launches of the year, and we have chosen to celebrate with Emerald City variants for Serenity #1, Buffy #1, Veil #1, and a very special variant of Witcher #1.

First up is Veil, the much-talked-about new, original series by Greg Rucka and Toni Fejzula. For this year’s show, Dark Horse has tapped J. H. Williams III to create the variant cover. Limited to 500 copies, Veil #1 is sure to go quickly, especially with writer Greg Rucka in attendance!

Next, we have the hotly anticipated Season 10 premiere of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, with a variant cover by Season 9 cover artist Phil Noto, limited to 1,000 copies. Look for interior artist Rebekah Isaacs at this year’s show!

Another one for Joss Whedon fans: Dark Horse brings Jenny Frison on for a special cover of Serenity: Leaves on the Wind #1, featuring none other than the lovely Inara! A few lucky fans may even get actress Morena Baccarin herself to sign their copies!

Last, and certainly not least, legendary artist Stan Sakai has done a special cover of the upcoming tie-in series The Witcher, a canonical entry in the world of the Witcher video games, which have collectively won over 250 awards and sold more than 5.5 million copies worldwide! All proceeds from the sale of this limited edition variant will benefit Stan and Sharon Sakai. Stan will be attending the show, in celebration of the thirtieth anniversary of his landmark series, Usagi Yojimbo!

Each variant-cover issue will cost five dollars and will be limited to ten copies per person, per day! A set quantity will be available at the show opening each day.

Hope to see you at this year’s Emerald City Comicon in Seattle, WA, on March 28–30!
