    The Comic Bug is proud to host a Saturday signing on the release of their trade paperbacks,

    Pornsak Pichetshote is the writer of Infidel from Image Comics.

         A haunted house story for the 21st century, INFIDEL follows an American Muslim woman and her multiracial neighbors who move into a building haunted by entities that feed off xenophobia.
    Bestselling editor PORNSAK PICHETSHOTE (Swamp Thing) makes his comics-writing debut alongside artist extraordinaire AARON CAMPBELL (The Shadow), award-winning colorist and
        editor JOSÉ VILLARRUBIA (Promethea) and letterer / designer JEFF POWELL (SCALES & SCOUNDRELS).

    Joe Henderson is the writer of Skyward from Image Comics.

       "MY LOW-G LIFE," Part One One day, gravity on earth suddenly became a fraction of what it is now. Twenty years later, humanity has adapted to its new low-gravity reality. And to Willa Fowler,
       a woman born just after G-day, it’s…well, it’s pretty awesome, actually. You can fly through the air! I mean, sure, you can also die if you jump too high. So you just don’t jump too high. And
       maybe don’t stumble into a dangerous plan to bring gravity back that could get you killed…. From writer JOE HENDERSON (showrunner of Fox’s Lucifer) and artist LEE GARBETT (Lucifer,
       Loki: Agent of Asgard), SKYWARD is an adventure-filled exploration of our world turned upside down and a young woman’s journey to find her place in it.

    DATE CHANGE! Due to scheduling conflict, The Comic Bug will host it 1 week later.  This will allow die-hard creators to possibly participate in 2 back-to-back 24 Hour Comic Book Days!!!  Thank you for your understanding.

    24-Hour Comics Day is an annual international celebration of comics creation. On this day, creative folks take on the 24 hour comics challenge: to create a 24 page comic book story, normally months worth of work, in 24 straight hours. Many participants gather at official event sites including comic book stores, schools, and libraries. Others take part in private gatherings, and many work on their own.

    Every year since 2004 this event has taken place. The thousands of participants who have created tens of thousands of pages of original art have included the young and the old, people with decades of professional comics creation experience and those who have never tried to draw a panel before, at locations on at least five continents.

    The Sketchy Bug Group was founded when a group of South Bay creators chose to break free from the isolation of working in solitude and sought out a common place for creative work in an attempt to simulate the “bullpen” experience of comic book history. The group has been meeting every week on Wednesday nights from 6 pm to 9 pm at THE COMIC BUG in Manhattan Beach, CA since the Spring of 2013. Be it Artist or Writer, Inker or Colorist, The Sketchy Bug Group welcomes all that are enthusiastic about pursuing creations in this medium.
