Focusing on the ‘princess without a world’ aspect of her personality and set after A Hew Hope, just like the Star Wars and Darth Vader series. All the Star Wars titles are top notch and have the staff’s full recommendation. Read the rest of this entry »

We’re pleased to announce that Winston World was apparently a phenomenal success and will be back next year! Winston handed out tons of paw-to-graphs and attendance was through the roof! We’ll be sure to figure out a way to make it bigger and better next year.

Sincerely, we’re excited to see a comic show is Cleveland again. I spent my entire youth setting up a conventions and violating labor laws from one end of the country to another. (and sometimes out of the country) I’m eleven years old here:
