ROBOTECH EXCLUSIVE  LAUNCHES PUBLISHER ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR LOCAL COMIC SHOP DAY®
November 18th Event to offer Exclusive & Limited Items

(July 11th, 2017) – Local Comic Shop Day®, the day that celebrates the independent spirit of local comic book shops, returns for its third annual event on Saturday, November 18th. Participating Local Comic Shop Day® stores will have exclusive and limited items, including the Robotech LCSD Kerschl Super-Pack from Titan comics.

Robotech, Harmony Gold’s cult ’80s television series, returns for all new adventures by award-winning writer Brian Wood (DMZ, Briggs Land, Northlanders) and artist Marco Turini. The Robotech LCSD Kerschl Super-Pack exclusive features issues #1-4 with all covers by artist Karl Kersch along with a very limited virgin Kerschl variant cover, with a limit of 700 Super-Packs available worldwide on LCSD. This item has a suggested retailer price of $20.

“We’re thrilled to have Titan Comics as the first publisher to announce their LCSD exclusive this year,” said ComicsPRO president Peter Dolan. “Titan delivers great comics and continues to be a good friend to the comics retail community. Look for more LCSD announcements next week during San Diego Comic-Con.”

Local Comic Shop Day® calls attention to the community aspect of local comic book shops. “For so many, the local comic shop has become a part of their family. Local Comic Shop Day® is a chance to celebrate this community dynamic,” said Marco Davanzo, executive director of ComicsPRO. “From engaging events like children’s art contests, artist signings, cosplay photo opps, comic book clubs and the weekly release of new comics all year ’round, your local comic shop is where pop culture begins in your local community.”

Local Comic Shop Day® also highlights the SHOP LOCAL movement. Recent research shows that when consumers buy their products from locally owned retailers, rather than nationally owned firms or online retailers, more money stays in the community. This strengthens local community and keeps money in the local area.

Exclusive items offered during Local Comic Shop Day® will include unique editions of key new releases, exclusive hardcover versions of fan-favorite collections, collectible statues and toys. Please note: some LCSD items will be available in extremely limited quantities.

Kim & Kim is a day-glo action adventure that’s bursting with energy and enthusiasm.

(W) Steve Niles (A/CA) Christopher Mitten
Dagmar, Rick, and Jules, intrepid private eyes/bounty hunters, have been hired by a high ranking Senator to retrieve his teenage daughter who’s run off to join a mysterious religious cult. This is no ordinary cult though. In the near future of The Disciples, the ultra-wealthy have become true Masters of the Universe by colonizing moons throughout the solar system. Billionaire industrialist McCauley Richmond is one such colonist: he’s built a new society on Ganymede, a moon of Jupiter, where his flock of cultists can have the religious freedom to worship him. But when the team reaches Ganymede in their starship Venture, they discover something has gone horribly wrong … This ghost story in space reunites comics’ king of the macabre, Steve Niles, with his longtime collaborator Christopher Mitten, whose stylish mix of grit and flow matches Steve’s sharp characterizations and taste for screams. Collects the four-issue mini-series.
