Happy New Comics Wednesday! Southern Bastards, Surfer #2, something called Amazing Spider-Man #1, & a big bash at the store tonight with Batman local artists & Very Awesome Girls craft sale benefit!

Southern Bastards, a new comic by Jason Aaron and Jason Latour is my super-unqualified pick of the week! Big DC Annual week, with Batwoman, Batgirl, Green Lantern New Guardians, and Flash - featuring Barry's first meet up with Wally! Can't wait to read the second issue of Silver Surfer and the new Deadly Class! Peter Parker is back in the first issue of Amazing Spider-Man since 1962 (well there may have been another Amazing #1, but it's still a big deal to a lot of people!) and he's regained his body and is surprised at a lot of things in his life that have changed since Doc Oct was running around in his place (also, we have blank cover versions of the first issue which are great for having artists draw upon, like at our Free Comic Book Day event this Saturday and or at the Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con at the South Point, June 20-22nd)! Here's some other details about other things happening at Alternate Reality Comics tonight and Saturday to truly make this a week of EPIC FUN to remember!:
Tonight, Wednesday, April 30th from 4-8pm is our HUGE Batman Artist Spotlight Opening Reception featuring 57 pieces of art that people turned in to help us celebrate Batman's 75th Anniversary! Most of the artists should be at the opening reception so this is your chance to give ego strokes to some amazing talent we have here in Vegas! AND as if that's not enough excitement - the Very Awesome Girls Into Nerdy Activities will be at the store during the opening reception with their nerd craft sale benefit, of which all of the money raised will be donated to AFAN and the AIDS Walk at UNLV this Saturday! You can also donate and walk with them and us on Sunday, May 4th at UNLV under their Skywalkers group name (since it's May 4th - may the fourth be with you!) - they'll have details at their craft sale, or just ask me for details anytime through Saturday! Here's Saturday's haps!:
This Saturday, May 3rd is the 13th annual FREE Comic Book Day! Here's what Alternate Reality Comics has in store for all of you sequential art lovers!: Firstly, of course, the star of the day is FREE comics! To help us celebrate this big day, we'll have local artists, Joyce HedelundDonovan PetersenEd Nesmith, & Randi LeeAnn sketching, the Zombie Dogs Food Truck / Catering will be here from 11am-2pm (really LOW prices & vegetarian options!), hourly raffles (everyone who comes gets a free raffle ticket) until 6pm (gift cards & graphic novels!), a HUGE back issue sale, & we'll have costumed friends helping out & everyone is encouraged to come in costume (costumed peeps get an additional free raffle ticket!) Hope you all can join us in the FUN and FREE comics! And this will be a perfect day to see our May Artist Spotlight group show celebrating Batman's 75th anniversary (opening reception this Wednesday, April 30th from 4-8pm)!
