Meltdown Party Canceled, but SD Comic-Con is a GO!

SoCal residents, we have some unfortunate news: due to some insurmountable logistical snags, we’ve had to cancel the party we scheduled at Meltdown Comics for this coming Saturday, July 17th. Boooo! Sad. We apologize for any complications this may cause to your weekend plans. Hopefully we can make it up to you by organizing something even more extravagant at a later date.

On a more cheerful note, we’re thrilled to announce that we’ll be reuniting once again at the San Diego Comic-Con International. This year, we’re gathering at the Weta Workshop booth to sign your copies of Issue 05 amidst alien monsters, aether oscillators, cybermen and creatures of Middle Earth. It’s quite a fitting location for Issue 05, which features beautiful original work from Weta artists Greg Broadmore, Paul Tobin and Scott Spencer, plus a gorgeous full-page ad for Dr. Grordbort’s, and even a bit of gushing from featured author Neil Gaiman about his tour of the workshop.

In addition to bringing Issue 05 for purchase, we’ll also have archival copies of 01, 02, 03 and 04 on display (meaning, everybody’s welcome to paw through them, but should one to attempt to filch anything, they’ll find themselves staring down the barrel of an Unnatural Selector). The exact time and booth number has yet to be determined, but our signing will take place at some point on either Friday or Saturday in the main convention hall. Check back here or join our mailing list for that update.

We’d like to thank Richard Taylor et al at Weta for their unflagging support of Coilhouse. They’ve been incredible friends to us over the years. Also, HYOOGE hugs to mister R. Stevens for creating these wonderful co-editor portraits for #05. We lubs ’em ever so. Click through to see higher res versions.

    Sirose– nope, just the mag. Too much schlepping, alas.
