Press Release:

New Green Lantern writer, Rob Venditti, will be at A Comic Shop Wednesday June 5th to sign the first issue of his Green Lantern run!

He’s taking over for Geoff Johns with issue #21, and the ring chose him mainly because of his work on Valiant’s X-O Manowar.

You should also check out his Surrogates (which was made into a Bruce Willis movie) and Homeland Directive.

This will be a FREE signing and meet-up in the Geek Easy during the day with (green) food and beer specials and then a Green Lantern themed after party.

The party isn’t going on too late because it’s a Wednesday and Rob and I are going to Heroes Con the next day!

Come by and have a great time with a great guy. You can also warn him not to screw up Green Lantern, he can take it, he can overcome great fear!

FL – A Comic Shop Birthday Bash

Press Release:

On September 12th, starting at 3:00 P.M., A Comic Shop will double the fun with a special birthday party for store owner, Aaron Haaland, and an autograph signing with Jeffrey Kaufman for the release of WHORE, produced by Big City Comics Studio and published by Zenescope Entertainment.

To celebrate Aaron’s birthday, as well as the release of WHORE, A Comic Shop is holding a special party and contest where guys can unleash their inner whore and do outrageous acts for prizes. There will be plenty of FREE posters, beanie bags, and hand held fans to go around for both the men and women on this special occasion.

WHORE, is a graphic novel regarding ex-CIA agent Jacob Mars. Mars would probably put a bullet in your head if you called him a “whore,” but in simple terms, that’s what he is. After getting downsized from the CIA, he takes any job he can to pay his debts and alimony. He isn’t a bad guy by nature, but out of necessity, he has to live a life where things don’t matter, as long as he gets paid. His motto, simply stated: “Every man has his price.”

The WHORE autograph event will take place in Orlando at A Comic Shop on September 12th, 2012 from 3-5 P.M. at 114 South Semoran Blvd. Winter Park, FL. For more information, please call (407) 332-9636.
