The CBGB Comic Gets Even Better

As a comic store retailer it’s my job to distill down those special somethings that make people excited to leave the comfort of their easy chairs to venture out into the world and come into my store. I’ve designed my entire business around the concept of making the Isotope into something much more than just a place to purchase goods. It’s in the store’s DNA, in the culture of people, and in everything we do. I think the best brick-and-mortar retail establishments are all about creating awesome experiences and crafting wonderful memories. And I’m always excited to see other folks in the comic industry who are on the same page as I am.

So when longtime Isotope amigos Sam Humphries and Rob G wrote to me asking if we would like to be one of the few select retailers to get to give away their limited edition show poster prints for folks who buy the first issue of the upcoming CBGB comic? You know I smiled! Not only were our pals pretty much on the exact same wave-length as me, but I actually may have been the person who taught Rob G that double-devil salute (which I first saw a guy holding high at a Danzig show years ago and you can see me doing the same in the pit in this here Gwar video).

Anyway, my staff and I were already pretty excited about the release of the four issue CBGB comic already… with stories from Jamie Hernandez, Kieron Gillen, Chuck BB, Kelly Sue DeConnick, Sam Humphries, Rob G, and the rather awesome Scissor Sisters songstress Ana Matronic? How could we not be?!

Check out the print here, read more about the series, and don’t forget to add it to your pull-list!

    Four issues? One could create four issues worth of great stories involving just the CBGB’s bathroom. What incidents caused the walls to become that way, layer after layer?

    I’m hoping it’s a “series of mini-series!”

    The bathroom walls were preserved in their final state!

    not to diminish the awesomeness of this awesome promotion, but i was taught that “gang sign” by my friend Randy Blythe, singer of the totally bad ass metal band Lamb of God way back in 1996. but, james DID teach me a whole lot about jail-house paraphernalia, to which i am truly grateful.

    That is a truly beautiful thing.
