Andrea’s Toxic Picks for 02.28.2024

Hi Comic Shop Friends! We’re back from ComicsPro, full of news, ideas, and swag! First, thank you to Raf and John Shearer for keeping things running at the shop while the rest of us were in Pittsburgh! We represented the Short Box King at the charity auction! Second, I want to tell you about what I’m most excited about that was announced. You probably saw most of these online already, but if you didn’t: EC Comics is coming back at Oni! Very excited for another horror anthology, which they’re calling Epitaphs from the Abyss, and they are also doing a sci-fi one called Cruel Universe. The Toxic Avenger is returning to comics from Ahoy! Based on the classic Troma movies and the cartoon series, it will be starting in October. I grabbed a bunch of extra promo posters of Toxie to give away to you! The next one-shot BRZRKR chapter will be a western, written by Jason Aaron! It’s out in June and is called A Faceful of Bullets.

Andrea’s Blasphemous Picks for 02.21.2024

Hello Comic Shop Friends! It’s a little bit of a weird week for us, because ComicsPro is this week, so John, Ben, Kyle, and I will be in Pittsburgh for that for a few days. Stop out and see Raf on Thursday because he’s covering for us! And John Shearer will be covering Friday as well, so come hang out with him too! Don’t worry, Winston and CJ-90 will be keeping an eye on things. We’re excited to see some of our cohorts from other comic shops, and get the scoop on new stuff from comic publishers. And bring back some exclusives for yinz! Come out to the Grog Shop on Wednesday the 21st at 8pm for the monthly Midnight Rental Secret Screening! It’s a big one! It is: the one-year anniversary show, the post-Valentine’s Day show, Rachel from the Grog Shop’s birthday show, and the return of Lenora’s original co-host, Joe. Ben will be co-hosting like usual, and there will be a tape swap! I picked out three legitimately great movies to trade. Bring a wrapped VHS to swap!...
