Wonder Woman Day! Darth Vader Day! We’ve sure had a lot of “Days” recently. But how’d they turn out?
We start with a story about a smug Star Wars figure collector.
This was recorded during the Puerto Rican Pride Parade, and you may be able to tell from the background noise. But probably not.
Dal and Patrick will be out of the store for a few days this week for the American Library Association Annual Conference at McCormick Place. Challengers is running the French Comics Association booth.
Gregg Schigiel will be here this Thursday!
Coco Picard, Anya Davidson, Marnie Galloway, Jessica Campbell and Neil Brideau will all be in-store for a discussion on the narrative of comics, Friday, July 30th. Accommodating 5 creators and a live audience is a logistical challenge for us.
We could not tell you that Darth Vader would be at our event live, in person, and here’s the reasons why. Thanks a lot, Lucas!
What is Marvel Legacy?
Bonus! Donovan Challenger has something to say about people complaining about the Chicago Bag Tax.
