    In 2150, Earth’s resources are depleted, and countries race to outer space to mine what they need from other planets. China has laid claim to Mars, so the U.S. and its allies have to make do with getting what it needs from the inhospitable world of Venus. But for a group of Americans making its way there, survival has become all too real. After their ship crash-lands on the planet, the scrappy crew is forced to do whatever it takes to navigate the harsh landscape in their journey to find the science base they were flying toward. In the vein of great adventure survival stories like Lost and The Martian, there’s only one reality on Venus—adapt or die.

    Meet writers RICK LOVERD and FILIP SABLIK and partake in a special Q&A afterwards with genuine SCIENTISTS about the scientific accuracy of VENUS! A mind-bending evening awaits you!Venus

    Play it again, Sam! We're reprising our table read of JOSS WHEDON'S WONDER WOMAN for WHEDONOPOLIS 2016, a convention that celebrates all things Joss Whedon!

    Last year, we got our hands on Joss Whedon's script that he wrote in 2007. We performed the table read at The Comic Bug last December with actress/Wonder Woman cosplayer Jennifer Wenger in the starring role. Steve Trevor was brought to life by Curtis Fortier, who also blocked out and directed the piece. Narration is provided at a lightning pace by Adam Marcus and there is sound design and musical score provided by Chris Saunders of the Thirsty Crowes!

    The cast is rounded out by Rafael Navarro, Eddie Jordan III, Kate Enggren, Tracy Drolet, Scott Koblish, Debra Sullivan and Mike Wellman.

    The entire cast returns to bring WONDER WOMAN to life for attendees of WHEDONOPOLIS 2016 in full costume! This is a fun and rare opportunity to see what COULD have been!

    Tickets for Whedonopolis 2016 are $20 for adults and $15 for kids under 13. Check out their website www.whedoncon.com to see all the exciting guests and activities they have planned for the weekend!WW

    KurtMeet Sons of Anarchy creator KURT SUTTER in his first signing at a comic book store! We scheduled this event to coincide with LUCAS STAND #1, but had to postpone, but here we have it! Wednesday, August 17, just in time for the release of LUCAS STAND #3!

    Lucas Stand is a military vet who can’t reintegrate into society and has emotionally cut himself off from the people he loves. At his lowest, Lucas does something he can’t take back. Hell comes calling, offering him the opportunity to make things right. Demons escaping Hell are upsetting the balance of evil, and now Lucifer has recruited Lucas to send them back. It doesn’t matter in what era the demons escape—World War II, old-timey Hollywood, Vietnam, present day—he must learn to fit in both the past and the present. Given new purpose, Lucas starts to rebuild himself and his life, even as he struggles at the human cost that comes with it.

    Join us for an intimate look at the life and creative process of award-winning author NEIL GAIMAN! Director Patrick Meaney will be joining us for a Q&A following this fantastic film!
    gaiman
    While working on Grant Morrison: Talking With Gods and Warren Ellis: Captured Ghosts, Sequart and Respect Films were cooking up another film, one that would take a few years to come to fruition. And now it’s almost ready to be released to the world: Neil Gaiman: Dream Dangerously. Thanks to the diligent work of producers Mike Phillips and Julian Darius, Neil Gaiman offered unprecedented access to filmmakers Patrick Meaney and Jordan Rennert on his final signing tour (the largest signing tour in history) and Neil’s farewell to life as a public figure before returning to writing full time.

    Dream Dangerously offers viewers a fly-on-the-wall look at Neil on the road, interacting with fans and experiencing the struggles and joys of being an acclaimed public speaker and in-demand personality. At the same time, the film delves deeply into Neil’s writing process, exploring the childhood origins of his love of mythology, up to his struggles to keep his writing fresh after 25 years of successful storytelling.

    The film includes unique interviews with Amanda Palmer, George RR Martin, Grant Morrison, Bill Hader, Michael Sheen, Kirsten Vangsness, Lenny Henry, Will Wheaton and many more key figures in Neil’s creative and personal life. Ultimately this is a portrait of one of our most beloved fantasy writers that shows the way that fantasy can be a mirror for the world around us, and for the writer himself.

    THIS EVENT IS FREE to attend!

    seventoeternityRick Remender returns to The Comic Bug!

    Come celebrate the release of SEVEN TO ETERNITY with this RARE APPREARANCE of one of comics' most exciting and critically-acclaimed writers! Rick will be signing copies of Seven to Eternity at our Manhattan Beach shop from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. Don't miss out!

    More about SEVEN TO ETERNITY:

    Bestselling writer Rick Remender (BLACK SCIENCE, DEADLY CLASS, LOW, TOKYO GHOST), artist Jerome Opeña (Uncanny X-Force, Fear Agent), and colorist Matt Hollingsworth (TOKYO GHOST, WYTCHES) launch an all-new, jaw-dropping ongoing series in SEVEN TO ETERNITY this September.

    In SEVEN TO ETERNITY, The God of Whispers has spread an omnipresent paranoia to every corner of the kingdom of Zhal; his spies hide in every hall spreading mistrust and fear. Adam Osidis, a dying knight from a disgraced house, must choose between joining a hopeless band of magic users in their desperate bid to free their world of the evil God, or accepting his promise to give Adam everything his heart desires.

    “Before our time at Marvel, Jerome and I began working together at Image ten years ago on titles such as Strange Girl and Fear Agent so it’s very fitting we return now to tell the tale of the Seven to Eternity,” said Remender. “All those years ago we began discussing doing an epic fantasy tale at some point, should the planets ever align. A unique take on the familiar genre full of action, unexpected twists, totally unique characters and a villain who might end up stealing the show. It’s taken us a decade to get it together, but the wait was worth it. During the past decade we’ve collaborated on numerous projects and fine-tuned our mighty nerd skills to a point where what we produce here will eclipse our past collaborations and consume all evil in the universe and give a new pony to every child. This is without question Jerome’s best work to date and when you add super champion of color jive Matt Hollingsworth, once their powers are mixed into the art cauldron, something new and terrifying is born, a new level of sequential science.” Opeña added: "It's been a long time coming, so it's amazing that Rick and I are seeing a project we've been developing for years finally become a reality. Having Matt Hollingsworth join up with us makes it even more exciting and I hope readers will enjoy what we've all been tirelessly working on."

    SEVEN TO ETERNITY takes readers on a hard road through the strange fantasy world of Zhal. All men have surrendered their freedom for fear. Now, one last free man must choose.

    With the change in dates, you can warm up at other stores hosting the event then bring it to The Comic Bug!

    See you here!

    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 OFFICIAL event date for 2016 is SATURDAY, OCTOBER 1st. The Comic Bug date is October 15.

    The spirits of Greg Saunders and Adrian Chase are alive and well at DC,  but instead of the open prairie or the skyscrapers of Manhattan, the next Vigilante will be battling crime on the seedy backstreets of Los Angeles, as DC Entertainment announced today that THE VIGILANTE: SOUTHLAND, a six-issue miniseries written by Gary Phillips (Vertigo’s COWBOYS, Violent Spring, Perdition U.S.A.) with pencils and inks by Elena Casagrande, colors by Giulia Brusco and covers by Mitch Gerads (Vertigo’s SHERIFF OF BABYLON), will be hitting comic retailers October 5.

    "This take on Vigilante incorporates current social and political issues making Vigilante: Southland both relevant and contemporary, which sounded like an incredible direction to tell new stories featuring this character,” said DC Entertainment Co-Publisher Dan DiDio. “Gary’s experience with crime fiction will give Vigilante an edginess and grittiness that hasn’t been seen before.”

    THE VIGILANTE: SOUTHLAND is the story of Donny Fairchild, a failed NBA player who’s just making ends meet as a maintenance man. When his girlfriend stumbles on a conspiracy to steal water rights through a series of shady land development deals, she’s mysteriously murdered. Once Donny starts getting too close to the cause of her death, his house is blown up and he’s left for dead. Determined to bring the killers to justice, Donny undergoes training from an urban legend known as The Eastsider to become a masked vigilante.

    “THE VIGILANTE: SOUTHLAND is incredibly relevant to our times,” said writer Gary Phillips. “It’s a politically tinged story that touches on a myriad of contemporary issues, such as gun violence, class struggle and Black Lives Matter. The book also provides me an opportunity to contemporize classic issues/tropes like the fight over water rights in southern California. I’m very excited to show readers this character, reimagined for the 21st Century.”
