The fun, crazy, time-travel story and beautifully slick art is rife with humor, twists and 80s nostalgia!

Come on Wednesday August 27th from 6:00 – 8:00 PM to meet these great talents, have fun and get in on these stories early, before you’re left playing catch-up on cold and lonely days!

jhu080614

Press Release:

JHU Comic Books is proud to present a fantastic signing with two great talents, showcasing a great original debut in Nightworld #1 and a fantastic new release of Billy Dogma material in “Fear, My Dear.”

Adam McGovern (Dr. Id, Extinction Seed) starts off his insane new series, Nightworld, with us, which “offers haunted romance, hellish humor, metaphysical fisticuffs and B-movie psychodrama at its best!” This comic is gorgeous, hilarious and absolute madness. You’ll love it, we promise!

Dean Haspiel (The Fox, Fantastic Four, American Splendor) uses his near-mythological talents to bring some new Billy Dogma stories to us in the much-loved “Fear, My Dear.” His “The Fox: Freak Magnet” has also just recently been released by Archie Comics and is a treat to behold!

If you love independent comics, especially weird, crazy and fun ones, you REALLY don’t want to miss it!

Press Release:

JHU Comic Books is proud to welcome back the mega-talented writer Greg Pak back to our store! He’s done amazing things for years, resuscitating characters, giving new lives to books, reinventing what you thought was possible and making us believe in characters we thought we lost it for.

His run on Action Comics with Aaron Kuder has been stellar, and we all know how awesome his Planet Hulk saga was. He’s made Turok exist in a new and interesting world, as well as given us some great tales with Batman and Superman.

Greg Pak is now bringing his talents back over to Marvel Comics for a new ongoing Storm series, featuring the much beloved, white-haired, African weather goddess.

Come join us for a great signing with Greg and meet a fan favorite legend!

*Purchase of Storm #1 required to participate in signing event.

On Storm # 1:

“Thief. Goddess. Headmistress. Queen. The X-Man called STORM has always defied a single title. And her desire to better the world has never been limited to only her own kind. On a mission to foster goodwill and safeguard the mutant race’s continued existence in her own way, Storm will travel the globe, confronting man and mutant, god and monster and everything in-between. She will overthrow tyrants, quell tsunamis and strive to see her dream for the world realized. She is STORM, a hero like no other….and the skies will tremble at the sight of their namesake.”

RSVP on Facebook!

Press Release:

Our great friends over at Hang Dai Studios will be joining us for a fantastic signing event with Dean Haspiel (The Fox, American Splendor), Christa Cassano (The Giant Effect) and Josh Neufeld (The Vagabonds).

Along with celebrating Dean Haspiel’s art in FF #5, which hits the same day, it is also World Blood Cancer Day. Seth Kushner (SCHMUCK, Leaping Tall Buildings), a great comic writer, photographer and artist, and friend of Dean and us at JHU, has been diagnosed with Leukemia. As he awaits a marrow donor, we thought it would be a perfect time to host a bone marrow drive.

Delete Blood Cancer is going to be here, swabbing and informing folks on how being a donor works. (More on that below!) Even if we don’t find a match for Seth at our event, there are millions of others that could use your help and you as their match!

Come out, get some comics, meet some great people and help out in the name of one of our great, talented friends!
