Happy New Comics Wednesday 6/21/17 - before you go to this weekend's Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con, you should stop by Alternate because just look at the titles out tomorrow edition!!

Really looking forward to reading these titles, only read Batman #25 so far, the first part of the War of the Jokes and Riddles and it's FANTASTIC! We also got second prints of Batman #24 in and still have first prints of Dark Days: The Forge left!

Happy New Comics Wednesday 6/7/17 - Batman #24 (HUGE issue), DKIII conclusion, Walking Dead (best issue in some time!), Superman, Unsound, Scott McKeeve Artist Spotlight Opening Reception tonight, & Saturday I hope to see a lot of you at Millennium Fandom Bar for the Very Awesome Girls LV Wonder Woman party / benefit!

 Batman #24 is a BIG home run of an issue - I hope you've stayed away from spoilers online! New Howard Chaykin title! Mighty Mouse #1! Please read the details on our Artist Spotlight Opening Reception this afternoon & Saturday's fun after the photos here!
 X-Men Gold #5! Iceman #1!
 Some great new alternative titles today, including one of my favorite issues of Walking Dead in a long time (although I loved the ending of last issue, not what happened, just how it was done), Negan has some great lines and I may even hate him a little less (he's really a character I largely don't even have fun hating- especially on the show, he needs to be hit upside the head really hard!).
June's Artist Spotlight is the cosplay photography of Scott McKeeve - his Opening Reception is from 4-7pm Wed. and there will be FREE snacks and beverages!

Here's what's happening at Millennium Fandom Bar downtown this Saturday from 7pm-2am:
Are you ready for the first FEMALE Superhero movie since 2005? We are! Come on down and celebrate with all your nerds, plus Viva WW Cosplay and the Very Awesome Girls LV! Come to the lovely Millennium Fandom Bar - Las Vegas where we will have a costume contest plus raffles! All to benefit Heartfelt Heroes! Plus, if you bring a donation of a feminine product for Shade Tree Women's shelter, you get a FREE raffle ticket!!

Wonder Woman Week - hope you're all excited for the movie this weekend (I'm seeing it Sunday morning)! Details on our WW celebration below - bring everyone, whether you like them or not (grin)!

Saturday, June 3rd has been decreed Wonder Woman Day as it's said character's 75th anniversary & the new Wonder Woman movie debuts that weekend! We've got all kinds of WONDERful celebatory things going on that day including!: everyone who stops by gets a FREE Wonder Woman tiara & braclets (as seen in the above photo modeled by Jenna Seid, one of the DC marketing peeps), & a FREE Wonder Woman comic!! All of May, we've had a benefit for Nevada Pep, a local nonprofit org that assists families with children with mental health needs & our Wonder Woman Day is also going to be the culmination of our benefit drive with Nevada Pep. My Epstein store mascot artist (& artist of my website, business cards, store art), Ron Horsley, & myself have come up with a new member of the Alternate Reality Comics family of characters & we're debuting her on Wonder Woman Day as a full color limited print that everyone who donates to Nevada Pep that day (& those who have all ready donated) will receive as our thanks for FREE! Ron & I are REAL EXCITED to share our new character with everyone (her name is a secret until June 3rd!) & we think debuting her on our Wonder Woman Day / Nevada Pep benefit will be fun for everyone! And we've got MORE FUN planned for Wonder Woman Day, but I've taken up too much bandwith here on the internet already (grin), so stay tuned to this event page for more announcements! And from 11-3pm Hollie Green will be cosplaying as Wonder Woman, so bring your good cameras! And the Very awesome Girls LV will be helping out to make sure everyone has a WONDERful time!

Happy New Comics Wednesday 4/26/17 -Flash #21 (second part of The Button, it's GREAT!), Doom Patrol, Kill Or Be Killed, Thanos, X-Men, Wonder Woman edition!

 Flash #21! No spoilers following: Batman #21 was really exciting, right!? Well the story picks up in this week's Flash in The Button part two! Even if you don't normally get Flash, I'm here to say you HAVE to get this issue and Flash #22 in two weeks (the conclusion of this four-part story that advances plot teases from last year's DC 80 page Rebirth in huge ways)! Seriously, you WILL be glad to get Flash #21 this week (and we still have last week's Batman left that is selling out in a lot of stores!)!
 I hope all of you Vegas artists are finishing up your Guardians of the Galaxy art for our group Artist Spotlight show in May!! Art is due Sunday, April 30th and the opening reception is Wed. May 3rd!

Happy New Comics Wednesday 4/19/17 - James Robinson signing Nick Fury #1 @ 6pm!!, Batman #21 - the start of THE BIG STORY!!, Secret Empire #0 Hail Nick Fury (he's not in this event yet, but I'm on his side!), Soupy Leaves Home edition!!

 Yes, you've heard it before, how this or that event series will change the future of this or that universe forever, but based on having read Secret Empire #0 (and some other related things I've read) I can't see how this can't change the landscape of the Marvel Universe going forward! And this week's Captain America #16 is VERY connected to Secret Empire #0!
 Wait until you see what Aco is doing with his art in Nick Fury #1! You already know the writing by James Robinson will be great! Soupy Goes Home is a beautifully sad graphic novel Depression-era hobo story bu Cecil Castellucci (Shade the Changing Girl) and artist Jose Pimienta!
 Remember last years DC Universe Rebirth 80 page comic that teased some Watchmen connections within the regular DC Universe? This week's Batman #21 starts a four part crossover with Flash that advances that story (The Button)!
James Robinson, writer of Nick Fury #1 and many other fabulous comics, will be happy to sign your Nick Fury #1 and any of the other comics and graphic novels you have that he has written! The signing starts at 6pm, not 5pm as the above sign says, but James will stay until every book you have is signed!

Happy New Comics Wednesday 8/16/17 - Big Metal #1 release, Kirby 100th B-Day Celebration local artist opening tonight (with a HUGE Kirby cake), & Very Awesome Girls LV Book Drive / Bake Sale this Saturday edition!!

 I hope everyone has stayed off of the interwebs and not had this first issue spoiled! After these three photos showing some of the comics...
