Soundwave Plows Into May in an AMAZING Way! FREE COMIC BOOK DAY is BACK! And AMAZING AGE, Finally, Hits Stands!!
Get Excited For The First Week of May!
Soundwave's Rolling-Out The Stops to
Get Your Summer Started With a Bang!
Last week, we just had our major "Best of Charleston" nomination party, which was a BLAST! We thank all of you guys for coming out and showing your appreciation. We love you guys, and now we're moving on to MORE better things, starting the month of May off with a HUGE bang that'll make this summer UNFORGETTABLE! Some may even say...
And, speaking of Amazing, next week, Wednesday May 3rd, our great friend Christine Brunson will be visiting the store to help debut her new, nation-wide released comic book Amazing AGE #1! Christine is the colorist on the book, and she'll be by to meet everyone, talk about the comic, and sign everyone's copies of the first issue.
Amazing AGE is the story of three teenagers who spend their days creating comics until one day, they're sucked into their own comic! Stuck in a world of super-powered heroes and villains, they have to figure out how to save the day and get back home in one piece! Amazing AGE is the first in a new line of newsprint comics published by Alterna Comics. Not only does newsprint give these comics a very nostalgic aesthetic, it makes them more affordable to the everyday book comic reader. Plus, as an independent comic book publisher, they offer unique and diverse stories not usually told by the "big two"!
Get your first print, #1 issue of Amazing AGE for just $1.50 and have it autographed by Christine!!!
For the day's complete schedule:
11am - 1pm: Christine will be available, in store, to talk about Amazing Age, and sign your copy of issue #1. 1pm - 4pm: Christine will be off-site, out for lunch. 4pm – 9pm: Christine will be available, again, at her table in store!
Christine Brunson is a prominent figure in the local creative community. Amazing AGE is her first nationally-distributed comic book! Christine serves as colorist on Amazing AGE but also has been the writer and artist on other projects; She is the co-creator of web comic, Undead Norm and was colorist on the comic book, Disco Frankenstein. We are excited to have her join us on May 3rd for the launch of Amazing AGE #1, and to return for Free Comic Book Day on May 6th.
AND SPEAKING OF FREE COMIC BOOK DAY! Free Comic Book Day is coming up on Saturday, May 6th!
FCBD is an international holiday that celebrates comic books by encouraging new and old readers, alike, to visit their local comic book shop by giving out SPECIAL, and EXCLUSIVE, free comics! Soundwave Comics, in Summerville, is one of the FEW comic book stores in the area that celebrates and BOY do we celebrate! Soundwave will have over 4,000+ comics in stock to give away FOR FREE to patrons, whether they're regular customers or not. Each person, especially children, will be offered 3 different free comics to take home and enjoy!
Our guest list is INCREDIBLE. As mentioned, Christine will be back to sign anyone's copies of Amazing AGE that might'a missed Wednesday, and she will bejoined by the comic's writer MATHEW DAVID SMITH. So, get that double-helping of signatures on this monumental book! His past works include the graphic novel Blood-Drenched Creature Double Feature, the self-published comic Simon Says, and screen-writing/producing the films Bee Sting and Bee Sting 2: Bear Sting. We also have Chuck Brown returning to us on Free Comic Book Day! He's a current contributing writer on Femme Magnifique, living out of Columbia, S.C. His past works include writing a Punisher story in Marvel’s Civil War II: Choosing Sides #4, writing/creating the upcoming Dark Horse books “Rotten Apple” and “The Quiet Kind”, co-founding the indie comic studio 803, and self-publishing/editing five anthologies and a mini-series since 2004. Paper artist and cosplayer, Xio Sosa from Cut It Out Comics and Cosplay will be hanging with our special guests. Before becoming one of the "Scooby Gang" here at Soundwave, she was better known for her closet cosplays and handmade paper dolls of popular fandom characters from cartoons, comics, TV, and video games.
