Comics

Random assortment of pretty covers!

For the comic book fans out there, Fantastic Comics will be hosting a book signing for the first issue of  “Danger Club”, a new title from Image Comics today at 5 p.m. In the world of “Danger Club”, the powerful and established superheroes left earth to battle a dangerous and evil force. However, the superheroes do not return, leaving their young apprentices to take control.  As you would expect from young, adolescent children, bitter inner conflict and violence ensue.  This interesting take on the superhero genre, which one review compares to Willam Golding’s “Lord of the Flies,” is written by Landry Q. Walker and illustrated by Eric Jones who both worked previously on titles such as “Batman: the Brave and the Bold” and “Supergirl: Cosmic Adventures in 8th Grade.” If you’re curious, Image Comics has some preview pages up on their website.

It’s always fun to meet authors and artists in the flesh, so take up this opportunity while you have free time during the weekend. And of course, get their autograph (and give them to us).
