CA – We Stand On Guard #1 Signing

bkv-skroce

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!

CA – Eightball Signing

meltdown-clowesPress Release: 

Daniel Clowes will make his first Los Angeles appearance in several years at Meltdown Comics on June 5th to celebrate the release of The Complete Eightball, a two-volume collection of the influential and iconic comic book series, from Fantagraphics Books.

On Friday, June 5th, from 6-10 PM, Meltdown will be opening its Los Angeles doors to fans new and decades strong for a night complete with prizes, a book signing, costume contest, and an interview between Clowes and Mark Frauenfelder from Boing Boing.

Creator of touchstone stories such as “Ghost World,” “Art School Confidential,” and “Like a Velvet Glove Cast in Iron,” Daniel Clowes changed the landscape of comics when he began publishing Eightball with Fantagraphics Books in 1989. To commemorate the 25th anniversary of its release, and celebrate the future, the biggest comic book retailer in California, Meltdown Comics, is pulling all the stops for this one-night-only engagement. Meltdown and Clowes’s relationship dates back over 20 years, when Clowes created the venerable Meltdown mascot, Mel, in the early days of the store.

From Associate Publisher, Eric Reynolds says, “It was literally unfathomable for us to consider any Daniel Clowes / Complete Eightball event schedule that didn’t include Meltdown Comics. I don’t know if there’s a bookseller in the country that has done more to promote Eightball and the work of Daniel Clowes over the past two decades. This is going to be a barnburner.”

CA – Rick & Morty Signing

dharmon

Co-creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland appear at Meltdown Comics and Collectibles on Sunday, April 12, 2015 at 5:00 pm to sign the Rick and Morty comic book from Oni Press!

RSVP on Facebook!

Press release:

Oni Press, Portland’s premier independent comic book publisher, announced today a signing for Rick and Morty #1 at Meltdown Comics with show creators Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon on April 12th at 5 pm.

This will be the first time the show creators sign the comic book adaptation of their hit adult swim show since the first issue’s release on April 1st, 2015. The signing will be hosted by Los Angeles’ mecca for all things comic book, comedy, podcasting and pop-culture related, Meltdown Comics. Dan Harmon’s wildly popular comedy podcast, Harmontown, is recorded on a regular basis in the store’s NerdMelt Showroom and will follow the comic book signing at 8 pm on April 12th.

Rick and Morty is created and executive produced by Dan Harmon (Community, Channel 101) and Justin Roiland (House of Cosbys). After missing for nearly 20 years, Rick Sanchez (Justin Roiland) suddenly arrives at his daughter Beth’s (Sarah Chalke) doorstep looking to move in with her and her family. Beth welcomes him with open arms, but her unremarkable husband Jerry (Chris Parnell) isn’t too thrilled about the tearful reunion as Rick’s arrival serves to shake things up quite a bit around the household. Rick converts the garage into his personal laboratory and gets to work on all sorts of dangerous sci-fi gadgets and contraptions. That wouldn’t be so bad if not for the fact that Rick continues to involve his grandchildren Morty (Roiland) and Summer (Spencer Grammer) in his insane adventures. The newly released comic from Oni Press based on Rick and Morty is written by Zac Gorman (Costume Quest, Magical Game Time), illustrated by CJ Cannon and colored by Ryan Hill (Terrible Lizard, Stumptown, Stringers).
