Take the day off........as we will have activites throughout the day starting @ 9am - 6pm & so far, we have LOTS of FUN for prospective future ARTISTS & WRITERS, and many chances to spread the word on your favourite books!!!
We will be focusing on ALL aspects of the comic industry...with much more info to come...
----LINE-UP begins @ 8am,,.....details SOON!
As for the EVENT itself.....
We’d like to see it stand tall as a ‘Literary Holiday’ encouraged by many of those who, sadly, are still unaware of its existence....
S A Y S . . . . . . . Supporting LOCAL TALENT means expanding the industry!!!
THE AVENGERS MOVIE,.... live-action & prime-time is due to hit theaters, stay-tuned HERE for your chance to experience it.....BIG!!!....and learn about an Event you never thought you'd see.... [....actually, what odds would you have been given in betting to EVER see a non-animated 'AVENGERS' movie on the silver screen??....]..
Who doesn't just LOVE Samuel L. Jackson [...created as Nick Fury WAY before the movies in MARVEL's 'modernistly' designed 'ULTIMATE COMICS', an on-going 2nd Universe...<<see below>>]....epspecially when he's ordering around 'EARTH's MIGHTYEST',......WANT MORE?!....Looking 4 then READ:.
says......Marvel's mightiest, 'The AVENGERS' titles, have been simply amazing reads lately!
The perfect place to START READING 'THE AVENGERS' is @ the 'AVG: Disassembled' point [...collection always kept in stock... ;o], where huge ramifications lead to the dissolving & rearranging of the team a-la DC's 'JUSTICE LEAGUE', with big-gun characters SPIDER-MAN & WOLVERINE being asked to play parts...
Fan-Favourite, and Canadian,EH?, artist extraordinaire David Finch [...now at DC Comics, on 'BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT'...] provided the widescreen, show-stoping art, perfectly matched with Brian Michael Bendis' action w/character narratives which lead to 'The Avengers' becoming a welcomed 21st Century 'extended-family' for its members....
....which they needed....as FEW would have ever expected what trials lay ahead......
Before the movie, IF YOU ONLY READ ONE AVENGERS BOOK, just one, the fast-paced thrill-ride that'll keep you awake & at attention is.....
Ok, we admit it, picking just ONE of these is like choosing between potential date-mates on a Friday night [...pick the UGLY one, you'll both be happier... :o]....so we offer double the choice....
[....Technically speaking, these ARE different MARVEL UNIVERSES [one, the modern 'ULTIMATE COMICS line-up created in 2000, the other created in 1961 with Fantastic Four #1!...], and both are TRUE CEREBRAL ACTION for the thinking reader!...]
1........If you have a political bone, enjoy tainted heroics, and generally steer clear of MARVEL, we suggest to READ:
'----THE ULTIMATES'........a cliche-smashing reality of a 'heroism' in modern day, splashed with shady political undertones leaving oneself with a burning satisfied sensation once digested...
2......If you LOVE SUPERHEROES, enjoy their interactions, and have a sneaky feeling you haven't left them behind just yet [...you're RIGHT, like always!... ;o], then READ:
'CIVIL WAR'.........the prototype grown-up MARVEL tale breaks everything, and doesn't fix it....the most realistic crossover they've ever attempted forces YOU to seriously question..."Whose Side Are YOU On?"
....and GUESS WHAT?.....they are BOTH written by the SAME AUTHOR...remember the name...
.........M A R K M I L L A R !
-----Dum-Dum Dugan:Why aren't these men in uniform?
-----Tony Stark: It's 'Casual Friday'. Uniforms are optional for support staff... didn't you get the memo?
— Iron Man [Vol 4] #15
"Nice thing about built-in radar: You can see where you're going
-- when you can't see where you're going!"
--Iron Man #226
"Today, comics is one of the very few forms of mass communication in which
individual voices still have a chance to be heard...."
-----Scott McCloud, author of UNDERSTANDING COMICS
This year it's finally time to solve the ultimate fanboy question for MARVEL ZOMBIES everywhere, which is the most powerful team when put to the test in AVENGERS VS X-MEN #0, AVENGERS VS X-MEN #1, #2, #3, #4, #5! For more SEE BELOW for our special PRE-RELEASE PARTY for AVENGERS VS X-MEN #1!!!.......
says..... X-MEN vs AVENGERS is Marvel's 2012 Big Event !

will give us the headings, and...-"
that I should be here, but there's clearly someone evil behind this, and...
...well, with all the attacks on former Avengers - well, it could be a trap...."
[.....Long pause as everyone stares at Justice.....]
------Justice: Oh. Right. Of course it's a trap. I'll just shut up now..

DC MOVIE MAY BE TOO 'GREEN' FOR SOME, BUT
'LANTERN' COMICS SHINE PLOT BLATENTLY PROUD...
Art by ALEX ROSS
DC's surprisingly most consistent high-grade hero
reading is, and has been for years now, its staple will-
powered character Hal Jordan, otherwise known as the
Over the past 6 years, DC has allowed anyone who chooses to, enter easily into the life of Hal through gateway stories such as 'GREEN LANTERN REBIRTH',which contains everything a newcomer'd ever need to know about emerald ring-wielders, and 'SECRET ORIGIN', an emotional internal struggle within a man who has almost no trouble adapting to amazing abilities, yet has complex foibles as a human being, which literally blow up the challenges of being, with apologies to Marvel's Daredevil's catchphrase, "a man without fear"...
Don't let the spaced-out rock-'em/sock-'em of a few stories and a visually explosive movie fool you, GREEN LANTERN usually reads as a very down-to-earth, character-driven beam of redeeming light in a sometimes murky medium...
"I shall shed my light over dark evil.
For the dark things cannot stand the light,
The light of the Green Lantern! "
----Original oath uttered by first [1940's] Green Lantern, Alan Scott.
"In brightest day, in darkest night,
No evil shall escape my sight
Let those who worship evil's might,
Beware my power...Green Lantern's light!"
---The most famous version, used by modern [1960's & up] Green Lantern, Hal Jordan.
