Exclusive retailer of Erf, by Garth Ennis:
Acclaimed comic book writer Garth Ennis has written another heartfelt tale, this one for children! ERF is the story of four friends at the dawn of time; Figwillop, KWAAAH!, the Booper, and Erf himself, and their adventures in the primordial world of long ago. The four take their first nervous steps out of the ocean and onto the shore, and are soon exploring the exciting new lands beyond. But danger lurks in the prehistoric jungle, and soon our heroes come face to face with the mighty and terrifying Colossux… an evolutionary tale of love and loyalty for all ages.
Erf is available at NYCC only at the Midtown booth, or pick it up at the stores starting on Oct17th
Captain Action’s ferocious black panther, Khem is back! We’ll have him at NYCC with a limited run of 200 pieces. Khem the black panther will come with a special trading card and his gold chain necklace!
Midtown Comics will be the exclusive dealer of Brian Haberlin’s amazing new hardcover graphic novel Anomaly!
Back-Issue Man Alex Rae will be the Grand Poohbah of our booth, hawking back issues for only FIFTY CENTS EACH (along with some choice comics for a whole lot more than fifty cents)! Alex will be buying back issues as well, and he’s been given carte blanche to spend big bucks on key issues from the golden, silver and bronze ages.
We’ll be giving away great prizes all weekend long at our booth including tickets to Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark, signed comics, and more!
Thanks and hope to see you all there!
