1st Annual Great American Comic Con on Dec. 5-6th


Great American Comic Con is the newest addition to the comic book convention scene and what better place to have its first show but Las Vegas, Nevada. So December 5-6th, 2015 will be the inaugural event taking place at the Sports Center of Las Vegas. Joining us this year are some of the best comic book writers, artists and professionals in the business including Tim Bradstreet, Tommy Castillo, Howard Chaykin, Darwyn Cooke, Tony Harris, Bob McLeod, Tony Moore, Graham Nolan, James Robinson, Joe Rubinstein, Mike Zeck, Frank Tieri, Billy Tucci, Len Wein, and Bernie Wrightson.

What makes GACC different from any other comic book convention in Las Vegas is the guests will have worked on titles ranging from the Silver Age of comics all the way to today’s newest and hottest comic book titles. This show is all about comics and nothing else. You will find major comic book dealers from across the US as well as Las Vegas’ own dealers offering you the widest selection of comic book memorabilia available anywhere. Keep checking back for new guest and exhibitor announcements. We are proud and excited to be able to bring you a great show to enjoy. So make sure to register today and be ready to enjoy a good ole fashion comic book show. It’s about comics!

CA – We Stand On Guard #1 Signing


Writer Brian K. Vaughan (Saga, Y: The Last Man) and artist Steve Skroce (The Matrix, Doc Frankenstein) appear on Wednesday July 1st to celebrate the release of their new series WE STAND ON GUARD from Image at Meltdown Comics from 7:00 to 9:00 PM.

Press Release:

It’s Canada vs. the U.S.A. in an international signing tour to promote the release of WE STAND ON GUARD #1, writer Brian K. Vaughan’s first new book since SAGA, and a return to comics for legendary Hollywood storyboard artist (and proud Canadian) Steve Skroce.

WE STAND ON GUARD is an action-packed military thriller about a futuristic conflict between Canada and the United States, so in honor of their story, the creators will be appearing together at two different signings, one in each of their home countries.

Ironically enough, Brian and Steve will be enjoying Canada Day, July 1st, in the United States, with an epic release party at the world-famous MELTDOWN COMICS in Los Angeles, CA from 7 to 9pm.

Even more ironically, they’ll then be spending their July 4th in Canada, at the acclaimed GOLDEN AGE COLLECTABLES in Vancouver, B.C. at 1:30pm.

Which signing will be better attended? Nobody knows, but whichever nation loses will be forced to keep Justin Bieber… forever.

Both events are free to the public, and the oversized 40-page first issue of WE STAND ON GUARD is only $2.99! Brian and Steve will be happy to sign whatever readers bring, time and lines permitting.

And if you’d rather not pick a side, Steve and Brian will also be appearing together at this year’s IMAGE EXPO, Thursday, July 2nd, on the relatively neutral ground of San Francisco, CA, at the Yerba Buena Center of the Arts. Tickets available right now at ImageComics.com!
