Dr. Fate Vol. 1 TP
Writer: Paul Levitz – Artist: Sonny Liew

You thought global warming was bad? Anubis, the Egyptian Lord of Dead, is preparing the flood to wash the world away. Standing in his way? An overwhelmed Brooklyn med student who’s been handed the helmet of Fate, without an instruction manual. This title collects the first seven issues of the acclaimed new series, plus the eight-page sneak peek story from CONVERGENCE: AQUAMAN #2!

Art Of Charlie Chan Hock Chye HC Regular Edition
Writer/Artist: Sonny Liew

Meet Charlie Chan Hock Chye, the greatest comic book artist you’ve probably never heard of. When he started making comics in Singapore as a boy of 16 in 1954, Chan expected fame and fortune to quickly follow. But just as Singapore’s road to independence would be full of twists and turns, so too would Chan’s own journey as an artist. Splicing together a dizzying array of art styles, genres and forms, Sonny Liew’s multilayered graphic novel is a celebration of life, comics and storytelling. The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye is an innovative work that challenges the possibilities of the comics medium, creating a double-edged history.

About WILL EISNER WEEK:
WILL EISNER WEEK is an annual series of celebrations that takes place in multiple cities, timed around Will Eisner’s March 6th birthday. Started in 2009, Will Eisner Week is dedicated to promoting graphic novel literacy, free speech awareness, and the legacy of Will Eisner. This year Will Eisner Week is once again a truly international celebration including England, Scotland and Italy. More details about Will Eisner Week can be found at www.WillEisner.com

About WILL EISNER:
WILL EISNER was born William Erwin Eisner on March 6, 1917 in Brooklyn, New York. By the time of his death on January 3, 2005, Eisner was recognized internationally as one of the giants in the field of sequential art, a term he coined.

In a career that spanned nearly seventy years and eight decades — from the dawn of the comic book to the advent of digital comics—he truly was the “Orson Welles of comics” and the “father of the Graphic Novel.” He broke new ground in the development of visual narrative and the language of comics and was the creator of The Spirit, John Law, Lady Luck, Mr. Mystic, Uncle Sam, Blackhawk, Sheena and countless others.
One of the comic industry’s most prestigious awards, The Eisner Award, is named after him. Recognized as the “Oscars” of the American comic book business, the Eisners are presented annually before a packed ballroom at Comic-Con International in San Diego, America’s largest comics convention.

MD – Free Comic Book Day 2015

sfruit-fcbdPress Release:

Free Comic Book Day 2015 is this Saturday at Cards, Comics & Collectibles – Baltimore County’s Premiere Comic Book Store and the Official News Source of the Baltimore Comic-Con! You don’t want to miss our amazing guests, giveaways, events, and FREE COMICS!

The full-day event kicks off with an awesome line-up of creators appearing at the store! Mark Waid, J.G. Jones, and Steve Conley will be all signing autographs at the store throughout the day.

The multiple Harvey and Eisner Award-winning Mark Waid has been the voice behind numerous issues, mini-series, and title runs that have resonated throughout comics fandom and the creative community alike. His acclaimed runs and series include DC Comics’ The Flash, Kingdom Come, The Kingdom, JLA: Year One, JLA, Legion of Super-Heroes, and Superman: Birthright, Marvel Comics’ Captain America, Fantastic Four, Amazing Spider-Man, The Indestructible Hulk, Princess Leia, and Daredevil, BOOM! Studios’ Incorruptible and Irredeemable, Archie Comics’ The Fox, and Empire, originally published by Gorilla Comics and later by DC Comics. He also went on to become Editor-in-Chief and then Chief Creative Officer at BOOM! Studios, while continuing to work on freelance assignments for other publishers. Waid is one of the principals behind Thrillbent Comics, a digital comics initiative, where he also publishes titles such as In the Pi of the Beholder, Luther, Cthulhu Calls, If You’re So Smart, and Insufferable. He is also featured in the 2015 FCBD title Dark Circle Comics from Archie.

Accomplished penciller, painter, and writer J.G. Jones has contributed his deft touch to a broad variety of titles and publishers. From Black Widow and Marvel Boy at Marvel Comics to Final Crisis and Wonder Woman: The Hiketeia and all covers for 52 at DC Comics, as well as Wanted at Top Cow, his work stands out among his peers.

Bloop by ConleyAward-winning designer, illustrator, and cartoonist Steve Conley has worked on such notable comics as Star Trek: Year Four (IDW), Michael Chabon’s Amazing Adventures of the Escapist (Dark Horse Comics), and JLA-Z (DC Comics). Conley, who is also the creator of Astounding Space Thrills and the all-ages series Bloop (www.bloopstree.com), will be signing and sketching all day.

Jones and Waid will be releasing Strange Fruit, a fully painted title, in July of 2015 from BOOM! Studios, and Cards, Comics & Collectibles is amazingly fortunate to be able to offer a limited edition print from BOOM! Studios available only at our store to the first 500 people.

“Free Comic Book Day has grown to become such an important event – not just for retailers, creators, and fans – but for the comics industry as a whole,” said Marc Nathan, owner of Cards, Comics & Collectibles. “We are delighted to have Mark, J.G., and Steve signing here! Add another fantastic slate of free comics, and this year is going to be our biggest yet!

Besides giving away free comic books, the store will have free Baltimore Comic-Con t-shirts to give away as well, and will offer 50% off modern back issues, trade paperbacks, and hardcovers.

Join us on Saturday, May 2, 2015 as events kick off at 11:00am with store signings and, of course, FREE COMICS!
