Why do we like Small Press comics?
At Game On! we strive to stock the most comic titles in the DC area per week. Of course we always carry the Big Two publishers, DC and Marvel. But, we are proud that we differentiate ourselves as carrying the most small press titles in the area! So, what does this mean for you? Well, ask yourself this: what does reading comic books do for you? For me, it is a break from the fast-paced, busy, lives we lead. For a little bit of time we get to transport ourselves to other worlds and simply have fun. There are A LOT of artists and writers out there that are doing awesome work right now! Some of these titles go on to become MAJOR hits, like the Walking Dead. Please do yourself a favor and grab a small press comic and read it. Tell us at the store what you think about it! I personally just read Vol. 1 of Charismagic and Shrugged and completely enjoyed them! Both of which have Vol 2 coming out over the next couple months. We also have a couple of events coming up in March to help introduce small press titles to our customers. Upcoming Events Game On! Comics Comic Book Club Friday March 22, 2013 from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM EDT Come join us at Game On! Comics for our monthly comic book club! Every month we will discuss comics. For the first few months we will focus our efforts on Aspen Comic's new 10 for 10 series.
