DON'T BUY ANY COMICS UNTIL THURSDAY NIGHT!

Ghostwerks Comics is invading Titan THURSDAY NIGHT from 7-9:30pm. This is in support of our CHAMPION OF CHILDREN project.

Titan Comics has generously offered to donate a portion of ANY purchase in the store during those hours to our cause. So even if you show up and just pick up the latest copy of Batman, you're helping us bring CHAMP back. Of course you can also donate to us direct, or buy a sketch or print from one of our artists, who will be there drawing live.

Come meet Michael Lagocki, Samax Amen, Corance Davis, and Khalid Robertson of the Ghostwerks crew. Plus other guest artists, like the brilllll-i-iant illustrator Kevin Steele. And enjoy music from local DJ master Rob Vik!

Comics, live art, good music and a chance to help us realize a worthy dream... what could be better?

Comicbook Couple #1: Danny and Misty

Danny Hearts Misty by Samax Amen
Ever since I drew the Iron Fist piece for this blog awhile back, I have wanted to draw Iron Fist again... and all my friends know I love Misty Knight... so the sketch theme right now is comicbook couples. Feel free to do yours. This will be the theme until I come up with a better one or get tired of it (or both), so you can expect more from me if no one else gets in on it... If you post one on Twitpic or link on Twitter, just use the hashtag #metrosketchual.

anyways, let me know what you think!

(p)REVIEW: "God Of Rock" by Paul Milligan

Rock is dead! Or is it? Not if the God of Rock, fresh out of retirement, has anything to say about it. With his trusty ax, his best girl and a few surprising allies on his side, the God of Rock must take on the forces of Anti-Rock and make the world safe once again for Rock, Rebellion and all that other stuff your parents really, really hate.
This God of Rock collection spans over three arcs, each one created on one 24-Hour Comic Day.
