Comic Book Writer/Artist Ken Garing will be signing at the Escapist. His new Image comic PLANETOID PRAXIS is the long-anticipated sequel to the popular 2012 miniseries PLANETOID. The inhabitants of a distant planetoid have fought off their robot overlords and established a thriving settlement on the planetoidís mechanized surface. Now, years later, their de facto leader, Onica, must grapple with a new complication when their isolated way of life is threatened by the arrival of an unexpected visitor!
Get together with a group of people who (like you) read comics and want to talk about them. Each month we discuss a graphic novel that is chosen by the group. This month we are reading
It's a special valentine club meeting and it's high time you realized that hearts are not all about love, especially when something as simple as a heart transplant turns into a nationwide crime spree. Intrigued? I know you are.
Our selection for the next month is
One young robot's struggle to stay alive in a universe where all androids have been outlawed and bounty hunters lurk on every planet. A rip-roaring and heart-felt cosmic odyssey that pits humanity against machine, and world against world, to create a sprawling space opera.
Let's let Chris speak for himself:
"A 38 page digest of my 30 days spent living in Tonopah, Nevada's Clown Motel ó aka the stupidest thing I've ever done. Replete with floods, clowns, drunken cowboys, regrets, radioactive fallout, casinos, graveyards, blood and regrets. Full color, cardstock cover, includes photos and curated dispatches that were sent live during my stay. A one of a kind object that I just so happen to be selling multiple copies of."
Each copy is signed and defaced by Chris himself. $10

Alan Moore's Lovecraftian PROVIDENCE is one of our better selling titles at the Escapist. Those of you who read it know how deeply mysterious and involving it is. Each issue takes me about an hour to read. If you don't think you're spending enough time on it, try out this link to a blog with annotations for each comic. Find out where the building on this cover of issue #1 is and why it's important. Warning! Read each issue first before reading the blog about it. There are spoilers.

This is directed to the contestants of our "When Does Wolverine Come Back to Life" contest. We still have the ballots and the prize but, according to the contest definition of what qualifies as back to life (actual Logan, no clone, no fauverines), he is still DEAD. All New Wolverine is a woman ,Old Man Logan came from another universe, and Secret Wars solved nothing. Keep waiting... All will be revealed.. maybe.Back to top
