Ed Luce + SF Pride

Join us in celebrating SF Pride Month with one of our most favorite comic creators of all… WUVABLE OAF‘s Ed Luce!

We’ve been championing this amazing comic series since way back in 2007, and we couldn’t be happier to get to have Ed back in for another official event.

Ed will be sketching and signing his two brilliant body-positive bear-is-beautiful hardcover volumes WUVABLE OAF (back in print!) and WUVABLE OAF: BLOOD & METAL. And also the oh-so elusive brand new flipbook issue WUVABLE OAF #5 (are we still the only shop with these? We might be.)! We’ve also dug up a few copies of HENRY & GLENN FOREVER AND EVER #1 which features a fantastic Ed Luce love story featuring the cutest couple in all of comics, Henry Rollins and Glenn Danzig.

And what better way to do an Ed Luce event than with a rare turn of events… we’re also stocking a bunch of variant covers featuring Ed’s art, including the Robin Hood and his band of badass queer outlaws comic MERRY MEN #1 and also Ed’s contribution to Image Comics celebrated #Pride Variant Covers, DEADLY CLASS #29 and REDNECK #3! Now we’ll admit that we’re a bit biased but objectively these are the two best ones of all of these variants, right?! Totally! Also, hey Ed, how do we get one of those great t-shirts?!

Looking forward to seeing you all!

Today we’re celebrating marriage in all it’s wonderous forms. In our comics, we’ve got the shocking secrets behind what happened on Peter Parker and Mary Jane‘s wedding day revealed in the One Moment In Time storyline… and here in the real world we’re all on the edge of our seats awaiting Judge Walker’s historic decision later today regarding California’s Prop 8 gay marriage ban.

My staff and I here at the Isotope are all hopeless romantics. We believe that all people should have the privilege of living in wedded bliss regardless of their plumbing. So we’re crossing our fingers for a righteous pro-wedded bliss judgement today!

UPDATE: Prop 8 marriage ban overturned!

Happy Pride Weekend, San Francisco!
