I know I'm new here, but this is something cool that folks here need to know about.
For those that don't know me, my name is Jermaine, but my online handle has been Lord Retail for about 5 years now. I mainly keep to Jinxworld and my store's board because I know that I can only keep up with a few boards, but I've recently branched out to CBR, DCComics.com, and Geoff Johns' ComicBloc. I'm a retailer (worst kept secret ever) and have been with Acme Comics in Greensboro (est. 1983) for about 12 years now. Maybe even longer, I can't halfway remember now. When I was first getting into DC it was in the 90s (which was a good time to be new to DC if you recall) with Knightfall, Death of Superman, and everything else that was going on. And I did a ton of backtracking into most everything I could get my hands on from the past. So I'm steeped in old-timey DC.
Anyways enough about me, Acme Comics has something cool coming up in October that I hope some of you can make it out. On Saturday, October 25th, Acme will be hosting Sean McKeever and Mr. Tony Bedard, as well as the Birds of Prey inker John Floyd who actually lives very near the shop. A triple threat of DC creativeness! Its been a very long time since Acme has hosted high profile creators so we're absolutely thrilled and want to put the word out to fans. If you live in or near us, then you know its not often that creators make it to NC outside of convention season. So search your boxes for back issues (Batman Confidential Wrathchild, Teen Titans, Birds of Prey, Gotham Knights, and everything else inbetween) and come on out!
Mark Your Calendars!
Thanks for listening to me ramble guys and for being welcoming and accommodating to me! And thanks to Sean and Tony for taking a chance on ol' Lord Retail and Acme Comics!
