Alternate Reality Comics art gallery!

Once again, I've been falling behind on posting here at Ich Liebe Comics!, but I thank my blog readers for checking here from time to time. I've been really busy gearing up for the new DC titles which starts with Justice League #1, August 31st (and we'll have a special midnight launch / celebration for this book and the end of Flashpoint on midnight, Tuesday, August 30th, but I'll have have more details on this event in a couple of days). Also upcoming is Alternate Reality Comics' one year anniversary at our new space which is happening September 10th and is going to be tied into a benefit that the Very Awesome Girls Into Nerdy Activities are doing for Heaven Can Wait, an animal sanctuary. There's also something called the Maryland Parkway Music Festival happening on Labor Day weekend that Alternate Reality Comics is going to be part of, but with this entry I want to talk about the big new part of the store that is debuting this week!...

As those of you who've been into my store already know, I've long had a section of my wall devoted to original art done by various artists from various comics that have been published over the years. We have this display to share with people the diversity of styles that comic book art represents. Well since I've moved the store into my new bigger location last year, I've been wanting to expand my original art section of the store to also spotlight local artists (this is from an idea that Paul Tompkins, my Sunday herald gave me a while back). Last week, Michelle Irish, my resident artist (grin), finished fine-tuning this section (note the cool sign!) and we hung up a selection of art by Carla Speed McNeil, writer / artist of the excellent Finder, to give people an idea of what this area will look like. We also wanted to get an idea of how much art this section could spotlight without looking crowded. We've got ten Carla Speed McNeil pieces of art on display here and you can easily see how even more art can be easily displayed (depending on the size of the pieces though)

Two collected Finder graphic novels by Carla Speed McNeil, the artist that I'm testing Alternate Reality Comics' Artist Spotlight with until the debut of our first two local artists...

Keri Schroeder and Gilbert Hernandez! Keri Schroeder is the curator over at Insert Coins and also hangs her hat at the Bellagio Fine arts Gallery when she isn't creating amazing pen and ink and painted works of art (I don't want to show little images of her art because they really need to be seen in person) and Gilbert Hernandez is the creator, writer, artist of Love and Rockets (which he's done for almost 30 years!). We will have an artist reception this Friday, August 26th from 6-9pm with some entertainment provided by local poet, Harry Fagel (if you haven't heard Harry deliver his poetry, you haven't lived!) and the multi-faceted music of Rushmore Beekeepers (the entertainment part of the reception starts at 7:30)!


This is one of my very favorite pieces of art I own, from Carla Speed McNeil's Talisman volume of Finder, a story about the love of reading.







Two more wonderful Carla Speed McNeil art images!










A double page spread by Carla Speed McNeil that has to be seen in person, but it's only up at my store until Thursday, because Friday we will be getting this space ready for Keri Schroeder and Gilbert Hernandez! Their art will be up through the end of September, but I hope to see a lot of my Ich Liebe Comics! followers on debut night, this Friday, August 26th from 6-9pm because I know you all love great art and love to support the local scene (thanks for that!)!
