Meet Sons of Anarchy creator KURT SUTTER in his first signing at a comic book store at The Comic Bug on Wednesday, August 17, 2016 from 6 PM – 9 PM just in time for the release of LUCAS STAND #3!
Lucas Stand is a military vet who can’t reintegrate into society and has emotionally cut himself off from the people he loves. At his lowest, Lucas does something he can’t take back. Hell comes calling, offering him the opportunity to make things right. Demons escaping Hell are upsetting the balance of evil, and now Lucifer has recruited Lucas to send them back. It doesn’t matter in what era the demons escape—World War II, old-timey Hollywood, Vietnam, present day—he must learn to fit in both the past and the present. Given new purpose, Lucas starts to rebuild himself and his life, even as he struggles at the human cost that comes with it.

Writer Charles Soule appears at Midtown Comics Downtown to sign copies of Marvel’s Daredevil #8 and BOOM! Studios’ Strange Attractors on at 7:00 PM on Thursday, June 9th!
Losing a big case has landed A.D.A. Matt Murdock in night court for the foreseeable future, meaning less time to clean up the streets as Daredevil. Luckily Blindspot’s around to pick up the slack. But the young hero might be in over his head when he stumbles upon a horrific crime scene, one that will terrify even The Man Without Fear.
Strange Attractors #1:
What’s to Love: Writer Charles Soule (Daredevil, Civil War) crafted a mind-bending story about how chaos math kept New York City from collapsing under itself. Presented for the first time as a limited series, each oversized issue of Strange Attractors features 30 pages of content, including new, never-before-seen bonus story pages.
What It Is: Dr. Brownfield believes that a series of cataclysmic events are coming to New York City, and someone has to keep the city safe after he’s gone. Enter Heller Wilson, a brilliant mathematics student, who discovers that his ailing, perhaps insane, mentor has been saving New York City from societal collapse by a series of ‘adjustments,’ a la the Butterfly Effect. But now, all signs point toward an impending disaster. Can Wilson take what little he’s learned and save the city in time?
