COMIC CALENDAR

Midtown Comics Grand Central store is hosting a signing on April 22nd from 4-6PM featuring Brian Wood, Rebekah Isaacs, and special guest Becky Cloonan. And over at their Times Square store there's a Gilbert Hernandez signing on April 24th from 2-4PM.

Over in Brooklyn, Desert Island will host Bjorn Copeland, from Black Dice, for an Artist Music Journal release party and signing on Wednesday April 28th from 7-9PM.

In just a week and a half it'll be FREE COMIC BOOK DAY once again. We'll try and keep track of the events at various comic stores in the NYC/Brooklyn area.



Fresh from his Facebook status, Matt Loux will be signing at Rocketship Comics where you can get a FCBD version of Salt Water Taffy, which will make you want to buy the first three volumes of the book published by Oni Press from him as well.

Over at Bergen Street Comics from 5-7PM they have some activities for kids planned to celebrate First Second's new Young Reader titles.

There's also Forbidden Planet, St. Marks Comics in Brooklyn & East Village (who's site seems woefully out of date), and Cosmic Comics.

Seems my favorite NYC comic store Jim Hanley's Universe is having a comedy night the night of May 1st, which is pretty cool, with "some huge signings and events for Free Comic Book Day set to announce in the coming days". They're also running a buy-one-get-one-half-off trade paperback sale this weekend.

If there's anything we should know about, an event, news, a new artist, comic, band, book, game, movie, etc. hit us up and let us know, or feel free to leave your opinions in the comments section below.
