New Release Pick of the Week for 12/12/2018

The Batman Who Laughs #1

The Batman Who Laughs #1

DC Comics

(W) Scott Snyder (A/CA) Jock

Left rattled by the events of DARK NIGHTS: METAL, Bruce Wayne must come face to face with the nightmares spawned from the Dark Multiverse. But even though evil devoured evil in the collapse of Challengers Mountain, the Dark Knight still has his doubts. He discovers that the Batman Who Laughs not only survived the fight with The Joker at the end of METAL, but now he is enacting a sinister plan across the Multiverse-something both terrifying and oddly familiar. But when Bruce Wayne realizes the only way to stop this madman is to kill him, he must consider violating the very rule Batman won’t break… the same rule that created this insatiable villain-the Batman Who Laughs!

Binge: An Art Show Inspired by Television

Opening Reception: Friday, December 7, 7 PM – 10 PM

December 7, 2018 – January 7, 2019

Winter is coming…

…and what better way to take cover than by staying home and keeping warm by the soothing light of the ol’ boob tube? But first you’ll have to brave the cold and make it out to Guzu Gallery’s winter art show, of course! For the first time ever, Guzu is preparing an art exhibition completely comprised of television-themed artwork. This is their final show of the year; you don’t want to miss it!

Twenty-six artists will pay tribute to the small screen, with over thirty stylish renditions of characters and settings from television’s past and present. Each never-before-seen art piece will be on display at the opening reception on Friday, December 7th from 7 to 10pm, and the exhibition will remain up through January 7th. Original artwork and prints will be available for purchase — unique items to fit every budget! As always, admission is free and all ages are welcome. Come by the gallery and you’ll be able to cross even the most impossible individuals off your holiday shopping list!

Guzu Gallery welcomes everyone to the show, but if you can’t make it out, the artwork will be available for purchase in their online store on Wednesday, December 12th around Noon CST.
