Signings & Events Calendar
We’re buying back issues and collectibles in a big way, and we’re especially looking for Silver and Golden Age comics, along with key issues of ANY age. We also need LOTS of vintage toys and collectibles, so don’t be shy, bring everything, and be prepared to meet Midtown’s back issue man Alex Rae. Who knows? You may walk away with an Uncle Scrooge-size haul of money!! Buying day takes place at Midtown Comics Downtown, at 64 Fulton Street (corner of Ryder Alley, just a few blocks east of Broadway), from 11:00AM to 4:00PM. We’ll see you there!
Meet legendary Hip Hop artist Darryl “DMC” McDaniels at Midtown Comics Downtown on Thursday, November 6th for a signing of DMC Vol 1, the first collection from Darryl Makes Comics.
It’s 1985 in New York City. Wildstyle graffiti covers subway cars as. B-boys break and spin in playgrounds and on street corners. Koch is mayor. Drugs and crime rule the streets. A terrifying plague is brewing in the shadows.
However, in this 1985, Darryl McDaniels (Run DMC) never rocks the mic to become one of hip-hop’s most enduring icons. Instead, he dons his tracksuit and Adidas sneakers to defend the city’s marginalized citizens against super villain and super hero alike. DMC, the inaugural title from Darryl Makes Comics, imagines an alternate history that blends traditional comic book storytelling with the pressures and anxieties of 1980s NYC, and explores how we got to where we are now. DMC is a superhero for those who need one most.
Purchase of DMC Vol. 1 required to attend.
Meet Ivan Brandon at Midtown Comics Downtown on Wednesday, November 12th for a signing of Drifter #1, the new highly anticipated comic from Image Comics.
Writer: Ivan Brandon • Artist: Nic Klein
Ivan Brandon (Wolverine, Men of War) and Nic Klein (Captain America, Thor) team up for DRIFTER, an all-new science fiction series from Image Comics coming in November 2014.
Mankind’s colonization of the galaxy has left countless planets mined bare and lifeless. A space transport crashes onto a backwater world whose unique properties set the stage for a story that combines the dark wonder of a strange and alien landscape with the struggles of an abandoned and lawless frontier town.
