Archival Quality Creators Ivy Noelle Weir & Steenz

Archival Quality is a new graphic novel from Oni Press involving a ghost and an archivist that we're really excited to get an early look at! Not only will we have both of the creators in store for a signing, but we'll also have advance copies of the book for them to sign! There's a lot to like about this book from the art style to the inclusive casting, to a kinda spooky mystery ghost-story vibe that looks like it's gonna be a lot of fun to read.

Jay + Miles X-Plain the X-Men Party!

X-Books have some of the most complicated and convoluted history out there as far as comics go. Ever read an X-Men book and think, "I have absolutely no clue as to how we got to this point. I mean, time travel, alternate dimensions, time travel, space aliens, time travel, Limbo,  and did I mention time travel?"  Well a while back, two intrepid X-Fans resolved to X-plain the X-men.  And what better way than to pod-cast it?  And lo Jay & Miles X-plain the X-Men was born!

There's gonna be refreshments (of a non-alcoholic variety), swag and other assorted tomfoolery to be had! And best of all, it'll be after most of Emerald City Comic Con's main events wind to a close too so there's no worry about missing anything at the actual convention!  If this sounds like a fun time to you, zip over to the store from  7-9 PM, come on down and join the fun!
