Art for sale, contests, local artists to meet and greet, and more. Reception on Thursday the 16th. Judging at 7pm. Awards and prizes! Costumes strongly encouraged!
 
Show will be up through the end of June.
 
CALL FOR ART!
Do you want to participate in the Captain Picard Art Show & Festival? Artists will receive 65% and Destiny City Comics 35%. The $5 fee helps CLAW to pay for wall hangers and paint and posters!
 
WHO: Any artist that loves Captain Picard as much as we do.
 
WHAT: Art that celebrates all things Picard. Must be smaller than 24″ x24″ and is READY TO HANG on wall. Slightly 3D okay but must be light and able to hang on wall. Alternative and out of the box media encouraged.
 
THE FINE PRINT: $5 Entry Fee for each piece. (cash only) Each artist can submit up to 3 pieces. However, we want to show as many artists off as possible so carefully label EACH piece with your name, phone number, contact email, retail price, and number your entries –with #1 being the one you want to show the most– and we will put as many as we can put up! If we are completely swamped with art and can’t put up all pieces, you will receive your $$ back!
 
DROP OFF: All pieces need to be dropped off at TINKERTOPIA (1914 Pacific Ave Tacoma, WA 98402) between JUNE 10-15th. Tinkertopia will be open 10-6 Mon-Sat and 12-5 on Sunday.
PLEASE, we beseech you: do NOT drop off work to Destiny City–There is not enough space!

Sunglasses After Dark signing with Stan Shaw at Magoo’s

Come meet the artist at Magoo’s Annex in North Tacoma. We had so much fun at the event at Destiny City Comics we decided to do it again… at a BAR!

This graphic novel was originally published in serialized comic form in 1989 by heavy metal legend Glenn Danzig’s underground comic book company, Verotik. Now it’s available for the first time in a complete edition with a new introduction and updated artwork by the original authors.

From IDW: “The story begins in a madhouse and goes on to reveal the mystery behind the disappearance of a nightclubbing heiress and her transformation into a tough-as-nails punk vampire/vampire-slayer. Sonja Blue is a “living” vampire who still possesses a soul, and is determined to fight for what remains of her humanity, while still seeking bloody revenge against the vampire who attacked her. But as dangerous as hunting down vampires may be, it is nothing compared to her greatest foe: The Other–the demonic alter ego with which she is locked in constant battle for the body they both share.”
