"John G. Fantucchio will have three paintings on display in Alexandria at the Del Ray Artisans Gallery. We'd like to invite you to the opening reception - food and drinks will be served. Come and meet John on Friday, June 1, 7 - 10. The title of the show is 'Art On the Edge.' It's an all experimental art exhibit. His stuff may look like something you'd find hanging in the lounge on the Starship Enterprise - but sorry, no comic book artwork. The address is 2704 Mount Vernon Avenue, Alexandria, VA, 22301-1124. Their phone number is 703-838-4827."
For those joining us late, John is a comics fanzine artist of the 1960s who turned to fine art and teaching.

Landry Quinn Walker and Eric Jones sign at Third Eye Comics on Saturday June 30, 2012 from 11am-1pm.
In continuing some of the awesome in-store signings we've had with recent IMAGE hits like PETER PANZERFAUST, STRANGE TALENT OF LUTHER STRODE, HEART and more, we're stoked to announce that we're going to be doing a BIG launch signing for DANGER CLUB #3 this JUNE.
This book is something special, folks. The concept. The artwork. The storytelling. It's the total package, and we are totally excited about every second of it. If you took Brian K. Vaughan's RUNAWAYS, Nick Spencer's MORNING GLORIES, and then applied the dark filter of WATCHMEN to them… you'd get DANGER CLUB.
We're pretty pumped to let you know we'll have creators LANDRY QUINN WALKER and ERIC JONES in store at THIRD EYE COMICS in ANNAPOLIS to sign copies of their new series.
What's DANGER CLUB? In a world of heroes and villains, the greatest super-heroes fly off to space to take down an unstoppable force… but they don't come back. And, they've left behind their sidekicks to take care of the planet — or destroy it.
A visceral, brutal, and angry look at teen sidekicks, something we haven't seen intensity like since BRAT PACK, this new series is one of my most anticipated of the Summer.
My gut instinct just looking at preview pages is that of BRIAN K. VAUGHAN'S RUNAWAYS put through the filter of WATCHMEN.
The writing is sharp, with great dialogue, and very cool spins on familiar superhero archetypes of the superhero genre, and Eric Jones's artwork brings the book to life in a BIG and EXCITING way.
Imagine a world of super-powered teenagers who lack the guidance of their mentors? An entire generation raised in a culture of violence who lack the temperament that comes with age. And, while the superheroes normally come back from these big cosmic crisis and wars… they're not coming back this time, so Earth is pretty screwed.
Very cool stuff, Third Eye Faithful! Make sure you pick up issue #1 on April 4th, and jump on board, so you can join us on Saturday 6/30 for our big launch party of DANGER CLUB #3, and you can get Landry and Eric to sign copies of 1-3 for you!
