This is an All Ages Event that’ll be worth skipping soccer games, dance recitals, and Saturday morning cartoons. There’s a pretty good chance it will also go down in Greensboro history. For realsies!

We’re happy to have our buddy Chris Giarrusso (G-Man, Mini Marvels) return for a special release of the first ever Acme Comics exclusive variant, complete with 100% original cover art! Stay tuned for an advanced unveiling of the art over the next couple of weeks and months!

We’re also delighted to play host for the X-Babies #1 Release Party with writer Gregg Schigiel (Pix, SpongeBob Squarepants), who also serves as Stephen’s partner-in-crime on the RE: Comics! column here on Acme Comics.com, and Eisner award-nominated artist Jacob Chabot (The Mighty Skullboy Army, Marvel Assistant-Sized Spectacular)!

Rounding things out are Eisner award-winner Art Baltazar (Tiny Titans, Patrick the Wolf Boy) and writer of one of the hottest independent sensations on the shelves today Brian Smith (Stuff of Legend, the Basics)!

Think we’re done? Gregg, Jacob, Brian, and Art ALL have back-up stories in the G-Man Cape Crisis mini series!
