Happy New Comics Edition - 9/3/14; BIG BIG day, DC 3Ds, last issue of Original Sin, first Death of Wolverine, & Damon Von Bohn's Artist Spotlight Opening Reception tonight!!
Original Sin concludes - I liked it! Death of Wolverine starts! Okay, I know that everyone reading this is saying, "Yeah, right, Wolverine is going to die, for what, ten minutes!?" Death is like a bad cold in comics, just about all of the characters get over it. We know that Marvel can't really keep Wolvie dead, just like DC could keep Supes dead, but there is speculation that Marvel isn't as enthused about characters (such as Wolvie and the X-Men) that they don't have in their movie studio (Disney). Anyway, at the end of day, Marvel still makes money on Wolverine comics, but on a comics news site, it was reported that he'd be dead until at least 2016. However long Wolvie stays dead, this mini series should be good as it's by writer, Charles Soule (She Hulk), and artist Steve McNiven (Old Man Logan, Civil War)! The multiple post Death of Wolverine comics I'm very suspicious of though (and think there's too many).
Damon Von Bohn's Artist Spotlight Opening Reception tonight (Wednesday, Sept. 3rd
We're really excited to have local Vegas artist Damon Von Bohn as our September Artist Spotlight. I've known Damon for years and had seen some of Damon's art, but it's only been fairly recently that I became aware of Damon's enormous artistic prowess! We can't wait to share this art with the Vegas art loving community! We'll have our customary complimentary soft drinks, wine, and snacks for you to enjoy while you visit with Damon Von Bohn and enjoy this wicked keen art!
