Hard to believe it has been a year since we opened our doors on February 8th, 2012 and we would like to celebrate by holding some special events on the weekend of February 9-10.
We’re planning a three stage celebration – an in-store MINICON on Saturday afternoon, followed by the return of On the Couch with Ty Templeton and an Industry Night Party after that.
We’re also having an anniversary sale — books at 20-75% off, some recent back issues at 50% off and a lot more!
Special appearances and signings all day. Guests include:MINICON – SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 9TH – Noon until 7pm
Jeff Lemire – unfortunately Jeff has to head out of town for a conference and won’t be able to attend – he has relayed his regrets and promises to come back in March for a signing to celebrate the launch of Constantine #1.
