NYC – DMC #1 Signing

dmc-nyc

Meet legendary Hip Hop artist Darryl “DMC” McDaniels at Midtown Comics Downtown on Thursday, November 6th at 6:30 pm for a signing of DMC Vol 1, the first collection from Darryl Makes Comics

It’s 1985 in New York City. Wildstyle graffiti covers subway cars as. B-boys break and spin in playgrounds and on street corners. Koch is mayor. Drugs and crime rule the streets. A terrifying plague is brewing in the shadows. 

However, in this 1985, Darryl McDaniels (Run DMC) never rocks the mic to become one of hip-hop’s most enduring icons. Instead, he dons his tracksuit and Adidas sneakers to defend the city’s marginalized citizens against super villain and super hero alike. DMC, the inaugural title from Darryl Makes Comics, imagines an alternate history that blends traditional comic book storytelling with the pressures and anxieties of 1980s NYC, and explores how we got to where we are now. DMC is a superhero for those who need one most.

Purchase of DMC Vol. 1 required to attend.

NYC – Translucid #1 Signing

cs-ce-mc

Claudio Sanchez and Chondra Echert appear at Midtown Comics Downtown on Wednesday April 23rd for a special signing for TRANSLUCID #1 starting at 6:30 pm!

Purchase of TRANSLUCID #1 is required to attend.
Limit of 2 items signed per customer.

tlcdTRANSLUCID #1 from Boom! Studios
Written by Claudio Sanchez and Chondra Echert with art by Daniel Bayliss.
ON SALE NOW!

WHY WE LOVE IT: Claudio Sanchez and Chondra Echert have given us such BOOM! Studios favorites as KILL AUDIO, THE AMORY WARS and KEY OF Z. Their latest book takes the superhero trope of ‘the never-ending battle’ and turns it into something you’ve never seen before.

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: TRANSLUCID is the superhero story you want but never thought you’d see. A story of childhood hope and loss as much as it is about the meaning of heroism, and what defines a hero and a villain.

WHAT IT’S ABOUT: The Horse has been the archenemy of The Navigator for years. But The Horse feels The Navigator’s moral compass has been slipping, and even a villain can’t let that happen. The Horse decides to get a closer look into The Navigator’s past that he’s buried deep in his subconsciousness and find out what drives a person to make the right choice, and what propels someone to make the selfish one. Thus begins an exploration of why a young man would take the mantle of a superhero.
