About Shaft #1:
Who’s the black private dick that’s a sex machine with all the chicks? Shaft! Created by author Ernest Tidyman, and made famous in a series of novels and films, iconic hero Shaft makes his comic book debut in an all-new adventure. He’s gone toe-to-toe with organized crime bosses, stood up to the cops, squared off against kidnappers, and foiled assassination attempts. But who was John Shaft before he became the hardboiled investigator with a reputation as big as New York City itself?

Pia Guerra, Dan Goldman, Jim Agpalza, Andreis Costa, and Matt Haley appear at Floating World Comics on Thursday April 3th from 6:00 – 10:00 pm!
Join us Thursday, April 3 for an evening of art, pie and the best damn coffee around! We’re celebrating the 25th anniversary of the cult-classic TV series “Twin Peaks” with a group art show created and curated by ardent fans and professional illustrators!
“Twin Peaks” became one of the top-rated shows of 1990 and was a critical success both nationally and internationally. It captured a devoted cult fan base and became a part of popular culture that has been referenced in television shows, commercials, comic books, video games, films and song lyrics. Declining viewer ratings led to ABC’s insistence that the identity of Laura’s murderer be revealed midway through the second season. The series was followed by a 1992 feature film, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me, which serves as a prequel to the television series.
Artists featured in this show include “Y: The Last Man” artist Pia Guerra, noted collage artist Andreis Costa, “Red Light Properties” creator Dan Goldman, rock poster artist Justin Hampton, Eraserhead Press cover artist Jim Agpalza, DC Comics artist Matt Haley. Their original art will be for sale, and a portion of the proceeds will benefit The Pixie Project, a local non-profit animal adoption center and rescue.
