Wow! The Choker Launch Party was absolutely amazing and we can't thank both Ben McCool and Ben Templesmith enough for coming to the store and launching their book with us. Of course we can't forget about all the great people that helped us make the event even better including the musical stylings of Captain Ahab & the Sea Crackens and the in-house cooking of Chef Rob Burmeister (CHOW/Black Dog). Alas, without you, our faithful customers, none of us would be here so thanks to all who attended! We hope you had as much fun as we did.
Last Saturday also brought about our first ever CBJ Olympics which was a fantastic time. We had 5 comic themed events, tons of prizes to give away and some very competitive competition! However there was one man who cleaned up at the events securing 3 out of the 5 gold medals and taking down our grand prize of a $100 Gift Certificate - Rene Palaguachi! He also walked away with about $100 worth of graphic novels and collections on top of all that!
The fun continues tomorrow with the Alterna Anniversary Comics Showcase happening all day. We've got a ton of great creators on their way from all over the Northeast ready to sign, sketch and have a great all around good time. They will have tons of books to sell including some pretty deep discounts. In addition, Stephen Lindsay's brand new book Massive Awesome #1 is available for the first time at this event, don't miss it!
