Good Morning All -
Last week was bitter sweet. First off, I am excited about launching our imprint: Golden Apple Books, all the amazing events I have lined up at the shop and new TV to watch like Daredevil on Netflix. However, Friday was the closing of the DC Comics New York offices and the last work day for our buddy and comrade Bob Wayne. I like that there was an official hashtag #ThankYouBobWayne. If you want more info: CLICK HERE.
He was a retailer and a friend of my family first and a VP of DC Comics second. He actually may go on to greener pastures and I'm curious what the future holds for him. We ALL salute you Bob!
As a token of our appreciation, I have themed my next Burleyman BrewFest
"CONVERGE ON LA" and have invited all the DC staffers that have relocated and the creators that worked on Convergence to join us for a Welcome Party at the shop
Confirmed Guests already:
(Writer of the main Convergence series)
(Co-Writer of Convergence #1)
(Batman & The Outsiders #1 & #2)
& many more to follow....stay tuned
Another heartwarming event is our SOLESTAR Earth Day Charity Event. This book broke the Guiness Book Of Worlds Records with
154 artists. Some of these artists that contributed will be on hand with original art and will sign copies of the new graphic novel. Click on the picture below to read a great article by Fanboy Comics about the book and the Aneurysm charity it helps.
As you can see, we have some creators joining us for autographs and sketches by Frank Beddor & David Flores, a Sidewalk and storewide SALE and a $1.00 Snack Shack Concession stand!
We are expecting a BIG crowd and plan to give away more comics this year than ever before!
Until next week, stay classy everyone.
Ryan 'Burleyman" Liebowitz
