Hello, everybody! Your pal Lance Danger here, been a while!
So, let's talk indie, ok? On Wednesday I was lucky enough to go to the release party for the crossover comic Tales of the Night Watchman/The Red Hook at my LCS, Anyone Comics. That in itself was a blast, but to make it even cooler, writer Vita Ayala popped up and randomly did and impromptu signing! This guy right here got the new James Bond #1 signed by her and the artist, SWEEEET!
Tales of The Night Watchman I have been following for a while now. I first saw the comic at Strand Book Stores. I didn't get it at the time but I was always curious. Then when I enrolled at SVA, I saw it in their library as well! I didn't get to flip through it because I was always swamped with work. Then when I moved and happened to run into the comic shop Anyone Comics, I ran into the comic AGAIN, and I got it. I've had it on my pull list ever since.
The Red Hook is a comic I found through the announcement of this crossover. The announcement came . out about the time volume 1 of the webcomic came out through Image Comics. I've been a steady reader on Webtoons ever since.
This release party was amazing! The creative team for the book was on board as well as the respective creators. It was a night of comics, drinks, and camaraderie that makes me feel happy and proud to be a geek. I got my copy from my pull list (of course) and got my stash as well, so I'm going to be well read over the next few days.
Activities like this are important for the creative community and I'm so happy that places like Anyone Comics exists and gives a space to indie creators like this.
