What a crazy following this book has amassed, proven by all the die-hard fans who came out to our midnight release party for volume 6. We didn’t know what to expect, since it was a Monday night at midnight, but we had a great turnout! It was due, in no small part, to the awesome Scott Pilgrim cupcakes – custom made for Local Heroes. We hope you all enjoy the last volume and the movie, which is equally fantastic.
Last minute preparation.
Our biggest event to date was also our biggest success. Jason Aaron signed every book put in front of him and then some. Our customers couldn’t stop talking about how great Jason was to talk to, how nice he was to everyone and what a class act he is. We couldn’t agree more – he would make a fine ambassador for the comics community and we can’t express our gratitude for how remarkable he made the evening. Check out the love in these pictures!
Comic book fans love to dress up, and this years Halloween party saw some of the coolest costumes ever. Local Heroes hosted a costume party for comic lovers, complete with free cocktails, a huge sale on graphic novels and prizes for kick-ass costumes. Our customers are the best and we saw great costumes featuring the Venture Bros. gang, Cassidy from Preacher (the best comic ever), Batman, Spaceghost, The Joker and Sandman – just to name a few. We’re already looking forward to seeing everyone’s get-ups for next year!
