The Beguiling will ALSO be involved in the presentation, having three to six drinks, and will have ALL of the Howard The Duck #1 covers (including variants) on hand for your purchasing pleasure. Plus more-or-less every issue of Sex Criminals, the Sex Criminals trade paperbacks, and maybe some treasured-Zdarsky-rarities too!

So, here’s the deal. Sex Criminals is the bestselling comic at The Beguiling right now, because it’s EXCELLENT. We’ve sold lots of copies of every issue, we’re still selling the first issue for people who are discovering the series late! Well, now there’s a collected edition (“trade paperback”) of the first five issues coming out, so if you’re one of the very few people who haven’t read it, now’s your opportunity to come pick and up. It’s only $9.99. And as a special treat, you can get your copy signed by series artist and co-creator and our pal Chip Zdarsky.

It’ll be new comics day, and it’ll be a MADHOUSE, but what the heck, right?

We’re all going for drinks after too, you can ask Chip secrets.

See you there!
