A Comics OCTOPUS: The New York Comic Con...

Why an octopus, you ask? Because that’s what you get when you have EIGHT GUESTS for a party! You read that right! See, when New York Comic Con comes to town, so does a whole mess of amazing cartoonists, writers and all kinds of comics makers. What better way to get ready for the craziness of the Javits Center then to get CRAZY in Brooklyn the night before? (There is no better way!) Enough jibber-jabber. Who is coming to the shop on October 9th at 8PM, you ask? Well: I’m glad you asked! *Gustavo Duarte, the Brazilian cartoonist behind Monsters and Other Stories (published...

And if you’re gonna have a book, you gotta have a party, and if you gotta have a party, why not have it within the fine walls of the greatest comic book store in North America? (That’s us, by the way. That’s what we just said: we said we were the best.) On the evening of Friday, November 20th at 7PM, come...

Ed Piskor’s Hip Hop Family Tree Volume 1 has been a nonstop bestseller since it was released last fall, and we couldn’t be more excited about the second volume. In fact, we’re so crazy over-the-top excited that we’re gonna have a party for the book with Ed Piskor in attendance. And he won’t just be signing books! Before we settle down for drinks and comics, Ed and Reggie Ossé will sit down to talk hip hop, comics and whatever else tickles their fancy.

She’ll be at the shop on Friday, June 13th for a reading, with a signing to follow. Corinne’s happy to draw in your copy of Get Over It, and she might even be willing to listen to you tell your own break-up story…provided,...

Get Ready to Rumble!...

It’s going down at Bergen Street! On Friday May 16th at 8pm, we’ll be playing host to indie comix darling Box Brown, who will debut his first graphic novel, Andre the Giant: Life and Legend. (We’re guessing you can figure out what it’s about from the title.) Box’s book is one of our most hotly anticipated comics of 2014, and we’re expecting a packed house for his live reading — after all, it’s not every day you get to throw back a drink and grab a signed book from the biographer of one of our greatest historical figures.
