    On the heels of Tim Burton's hit BATMAN in 1989, the screenwriter, Sam Hamm was hired to bring Alan Moore and Dave Gibbon's dystopic super-hero social commentary WATCHMEN to life for the big screen.

    It never happened. Well, not until many years later when Zach Snyder gave us a literal film adaptation of the comic series. The gang at DEVELOPMENT HELL and SKELETON CREW PRODUCTIONS are taking on their biggest, most ambitious table read to date, reading Mr. Hamm's 1989 final draft of THE WATCHMEN!

    There are many fun detours from the original source material, including an ending that MIGHT provide some clues to just HOW the Watchmen will be crossing over into the DC Universe in the very near future!

    As we read 1989's WATCHMEN, Batman and the Flash are trying to solve the mystery of "The Button", the iconic, blood-spattered happy face button worn by Rorschach throughout the seminal series.

    Don't miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to catch what "might have been"! FREE!watchmen

    All DayManhattan Beach

    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.

    Join us at either Comic Bug location this Wednesday to meet sci-fi comic book writer Zack Kaplan as he signs his intriguing new book PORT OF EARTH!

    His last book, ECLIPSE, was one of the smartest and most compelling sci-fi books on the stands and this looks every bit as good!

    Zack is signing at our Culver City shop from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and then at Manhattan Beach from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Don't miss it!

    More info:

    Fan-favorite writer Zack Kaplan (ECLIPSE) teams up with all-star artist Andrea Mutti (Rebels, Prometheus) for a gritty new science fiction series, PORT OF EARTH, coming this November from Image Comics and Top Cow Productions. Aliens have come to Earth, not in war or peace, but with a business deal: open up a spaceport here on Earth in exchange for advanced technology. But when our alien visitors break Port restrictions and wreak havoc in our cities, it falls to the newly formed Earth Security Agency to hunt down and safely deport the dangerous rogue aliens back to the Port of Earth. “After exploring the solar apocalypse in ECLIPSE—which was just announced to be in development for TV, but more on that later—I’m thrilled to be tackling a very unique alien arrival story with another amazing creative team!” said Kaplan. “My passion for sci-fi is very ancient, beginning when I was really young with Star Wars, Star Trek, Galactica, Space 1999, UFO, Alien, and dozens of other books and comics,” said Mutti. “I was like a black hole, reading and watching everything with aliens or spaceships with a sense of wonder at the unknown in the deep universe and all of its stars and planets…it’s amazing! I’m thrilled to be on PORT OF EARTH, such a cool project, full of great visuals, action, and an emotional touch; what else could a comic artist need?”port

    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.
