Death of the Inhumans #1
Cosmic Ghost Rider

Wednesday, July 4th

Cosmic Ghost Rider and Death of the Inhumans Release Party with Writer Donny Cates

Door prizes, special pricing on other Donny Cates works, and cupcakes…?

Death Of The Inhumans (2018) #1 (of 5)

THE TITLE SAYS IT ALL – HERE LIE THE INHUMANS. The Kree have gone murdering, leaving behind a message: Join or die. Thousands of Inhumans have already made their choice — the evidence floats bleeding in space. Black Bolt and his family are next. Rising star Donny Cates and PUNISHER: WAR JOURNAL artist Ariel Olivetti bring their brutal talents to the Inhumans!

Cosmic Ghost Rider (2018) #1 (of 5)

EXPLODING FROM THE PAGES OF THANOS! Frank Castle was the Punisher. A deal with the devil made him Ghost Rider. A deal with Galactus made him cosmic. A deal with Thanos made him…DEAD?!? Not to worry, he’s coming back, and he’s got a plan to make the universe a better place that’s going to lead him into an even CRAZIER adventure than he’s ever been in! Join hot new comic (and cosmic?) writer Donny Cates (THANOS, DOCTOR STRANGE) as he pushes his wildest creation past the breaking point!

Book Club – Heartthrob

Heartthrob

Tuesday, December 5

6:30 PM – 7:30 PM

Callie was born with a bad heart. After it ruined her life, she went looking for a miracle: a heart transplant. Now she’s got a brand new heart, but she’s still stuck with a crappy job, crappy boyfriend, and crappy prospects.

Enter Mercer, a mystery man who gets Callie’s heart beating like crazy. As her behavior changes and their flirting deepens, Mercer reveals he’s her heart donor. Only Callie can see, speak to, and touch him – and he’s in love with her, a love she feels just as strongly.

A master thief when he died, Mercer offers to teach Callie his criminal ways and how to turn them against her old job and kick off a nationwide crime spree. Hunted by the FBI and popping heart meds to stay alive, Callie will find out that nothing’s as scary as two people in love with nothing to lose.

Covering: Heartthrob vol 1 (Chris Sebela & Robert Wilson IV, Oni)

Next up: Doom Patrol vol 1 (Gerard Way & Nick Derington, DC Young Animal)

Book club meets the last Tuesday of every month. Everyone is welcome!
