WA – Dark Heron Debut Party

000000_Dark-Heron_ECCC16Press Release:

Fremont Brewing and Emerald City Comicon launch the Dark Heron – an exclusive IPA specifically created as the Official Beer of Emerald City Comicon 2016, featuring a female superhero lead – Dark Heron.

Dark Heron, both the name of the beer and the heroine created to represent the beer, is an expressive IPA with experimental, unreleased hops that blend with Mosaic and Chinook hops and lock arms with malted barley and a bit of oats to create the perfect flavor. The beer will be available for tasting at a debut party sponsored by Emerald City Comicon and Fremont Brewing on Wednesday, March 9, 2016 from 5:00 PM – 9:00 PM (8:30 PM Last Call) at the Fremont Brewing Urban Beer Garden.

Come dressed to conquer all evil and take part in the Dark Heron Costume Contest for a chance to win tickets to ECCC. There may even be some exciting giveaways! You don’t want to miss this. Cosplay Contest starts at 8:00 PM. Contestants must arrive by 7:15 PM to register. Winners will be announced at 8:15 PM. Winners must be present to receive prize.

In celebration of the Pacific Northwest’s largest and most heroic pop culture festival (as well as Seattle’s official bird and Fremont Brewing’s logo), comic book artist Justin “Moritat” Norman (The Spirit, Elephantmen and DC’s All Star Western) adapted Fremont Brewing’s heron logo and crafted the bold spirit of Dark Heron to embody the modern heroine. Dark Heron will be available on tap at the Show and in bars and restaurants throughout Seattle as well as in 22 oz. bottles in regional grocery stores.

All are welcome! (21+ to drink)

RSVP is required. Please note RSVP does not guarantee entry. Entry is on a first-come, first-served basis. Use this link to RSVP.

UK – Revenge Signing

revengePress Release:

Jonathan Ross and Ian Churchill will be signing Revenge at our London Megastore on Wednesday 18th March, starting at 6:30 pm.

“If you wrong us, shall we not revenge?” – William Shakespeare

Griffin Franks was a joke in Hollywood. A washed up action-hero. Over the hill. Past it. A has-been. A barely-was. But now he IS The Revenger. He’s a star. His movie’s a hit. His newest wife is hot. He finally has everything he wants. The perfect time for someone to take it all away. Forever. Starting with his face.

Jonathan Ross is not only a national celebrity and TV presenter but a lifelong comics enthusiast – who is building a new following of comic fans with his critically acclaimed work on Turf and America’s Got Powers!

Ian Churchill has worked professionally in the comic book industry for 20 years. Debuting on Marvel’s X-Men titles, he went on to illustrate Cable, Deadpool, The Avengers, Superman, Supergirl, Teen Titans, Red Hulk, Richard Starkings’ Elephantmen and his own group of supernatural heroes The Coven. His creator-owned character Marineman, launched in 2010 and received an Eisner Award nomination for Best New Series 2010 and was shortlisted for the 2012 Stan Lee Excelsior Award.

Press Release:

Join The Comic Bug on Saturday, December 6th from 7:00 – 10:00 pm for a fun, dramatic evening at the Manhattan Beach location for a table read of Frank Darabont’s unfilmed classic INDIANA JONES and the CITY OF THE GODS!

When the script leaked a year or so after INDIANA JONES and the CRYSTAL SKULL was released, hard-core Indy fans were in an uproar that this, in many ways, superior, script wasn’t the one chosen by the powers that be when it came time to roll cameras on the new Indy film.

Witness as some of comic-dom’s greatest talents sit down to chew up the scenery on what might be the most unique event The Comic Bug has ever offered!

STARRING:

RICHARD STARKINGS as Professor Oxley
RAFAEL NAVARRO as Marion Ravenwood’s husband Peter Belasko
BARBARA KESEL as Marion Ravenwood
JOSHUA DYSART as the narrator/scene director

and introducing F.C. Brandt as INDIANA JONES!

The man in the hat is back!
