Good Morning All -
First off, I am announcing the official date and theme of my next Back issue BrewFest: THURSDAY JUNE 18 from 6-8pm. I will be pouring a few of my newest brews
in honor of my Dad and our Founder, Bill Liebowitz. This year would have been his 74th Birthday. He has been gone for more than 10 years but it feels like he's with us everyday at the shop. If you knew him or want to celebrate with us, please drop by for some tasty craft beers that I made myself like:
BIG KAHUNA ALE &
BACK ISSUE BELGAIN
My Dad really turned this little comic store into a legacy for my Family as well as Los Angeles. Since we opened Golden Apple, it has always been known as the "Comic Shop to the Stars". In part because of our location near Hollywood, but mostly for our celebrity clientele from the "King of Pop" Michael Jackson to top comic creators like Stan "The Man" Lee.
This week, I did something I usually don't do, but it was at the request of our newest subscription member, Actor
Michael B. Jordan. I took a selfie!
He is playing 2 major roles in pop-culture infamy this year: Appolo Creed's Son in the newest ROCKY movie (note the pose) and the HUMAN TORCH in the new Fantastic Four movie. If you haven't seen the trailer, watch it here:
Interesting side note, my very own brother Damon works behind the camera these days on lighting and he actually built Michael's light suit that he wears to give his fire practical effects during the action scenes. Pretty cool Bro!
