Whew! I just got back from a day at the amusement park, and I am pooped. Hot out there. How's everyone doing?
Michael Rex will be presenting a deluxe, signed and numbered, limited edition print at his signings at our Vienna and College Park stores next Saturday, August 18! If you want a copy, they will only be 5 bucks! Here is an image of his design!
Local superstar Matt Dembicki was kind enough to join us on our podcast this week for an interview, check it out at the right! He talked about his new Xoc book, the new issue of Magic Bullet he edited, and the even newer anthology District Comics he edited!
UPCOMING - August 18 - Michael Rex Signing Fangbone!: The Birthday Party of Dread
Michael Rex, creator of Fangbone!

Another great relaunch of an old Valiant title! Young Archer has been kept in seclusion at a Creationist theme park, while being trained to head out into the world and fight an immortal evil... who just happens to be Armstrong! Secret cults, comedy, action, and great art get this off to a cool start!
by Doug TenNapel
The genius behind Bad Island is back with another inventive graphic novel! A single father brings home some magic cardboard that will come to life if you make it into anything, leading to Bill the cardboard boxer and a host of monsters and trouble when their jerky neighbor steals the cardboard! Wild and fun!
byJames Asmus and Clay Mann
Gambit sets his sites on a treasure trove of supervillain hardware, and has to seduce a beautiful woman to get through the giant party being held at the mansion of the man who owns all the hardware! Sounds like a perfect job. A fun new series with Gambit in his element!
District Comics: An Unconventional History of Washington, D.C. SC
by everybody (see under our Podcast above!)
A huge group of local comics creators put out this anthology of short stories from throughout the history of D.C., from the earliest days of its planning through the punk scene of the '80s, with stops at post-Civil War baseball, shoeshiners, spycraft, and more!
Bird & Squirrel On the Run! SC
by James Burks
Overly-cautious Squirrel ruins his winter preparations to save the life of the thoughtlessly adventuresome Bird, and now they both must try to travel south for the winter, without being eaten by the fat cat chasing them! A great and fun adventure for everyone!
The Creep #0
by John Arcudi and Jonathan Case
A utterly compelling (and strange!) start to a private eye thriller, as a man with a physical deformity is asked by an old high school flame to help investigate why her son committed suicide, even though he doesn't want her to see what he looks like now. Great art by Case (who did Green River Killer) with a interesting story!
Little White Duck: A Childhood in China SC
by Andres Vera Martinez and Na Liu
Na Liu tells stories from her childhood growing up in a very-rapidly changing China of the 1970s! Trips to the undeveloped countryside, the death of Chairman Mao, a mean mother-in-law and more bring a neglected part of Chinese history to life!
Godzilla: The Half-Century War #1
A Japanese lieutenant recalls how he barely survived the day Godzilla first appeared and attacked Toyko, and how this led to over 50 years of encounters with Godzilla! This is written and drawn by the madman behind Orc Stain! Get it now!
