The Ninjas reborn? All new stories, cover to cover! The word on the grimey streets of The City is that the Ninjas are making a new push to rebrand, reform and rebuild with the help of a charismatic and mysterious new leader. The Tick & a reluctant Arthur decide to disguise themselves in Ninja garb and infiltrate one of the secret meetings. Will the upstart Ninjas see thru The Tick’s rather “out-stretched” ninja costume? Or can our heroes stop the rebirth of the Ninja clans in The City?

On sale November 19th at participating Local Comic Shop Day® retailers!

LCSD 2016 MOONSHINE #1 MILLER B&W EXC
Set during Prohibition, and deep in the backwoods of Appalachia, MOONSHINE #1 tells the story of Lou Pirlo, a city-slick “torpedo” sent from New York City to negotiate a deal with the best moonshiner in West Virginia, one Hiram Holt. What Lou doesn’t figure on is that Holt is just as cunning and ruthless as any NYC crime boss. Because not only will Holt do anything to protect his illicit booze operation, he’ll stop at nothing to protect a much darker family secret…a bloody, supernatural secret that must never see the light of day… or better still, the light of the full moon.

MOONSHINE #1 marks the first time AZZARELLO and RISSO have worked together for Image Comics and reunites the Eisner Award winning creative team that defined modern crime comics with 100 Bullets… and now puts a horror-twist on a classic gangster tale. Issue #1 features a variant cover by legendary comics creator, Frank Miller!

Local Comic Shop Day® 2016 date announced!

Local Comic Shop Day® will be held on November 19, 2016 this year.

For 2016, the date has been changed to the Saturday before Small Business Saturday. “We polled participating retailers if they preferred to have Local Comic Shop Day® on November 19th or November 26th,” said ComicsPRO President Peter Dolan (Main Street Comics, Middletown NY). “By a margin of 73% to 27%, our retailers wanted to change the date to the earlier Saturday so it would have a distinct identity separate from Small Business Saturday.”

Local Comic Shop Day® is the only Comic Book Industry event created and run by retailers for retailers. “Last year nearly 400 storefronts participated in Local Comic Shop Day®,” said ComicsPRO Executive Director Marco Davanzo (Alakazam Comics, Irvine CA). “Each and every one of these retailers has a voice in how we grow the day – that’s why we polled them and will continue to ask their opinions as we go forward.”
