Created by the most charming men in comic books, Mike Wellman (writer) and Rafael Navarro (artist), Guns A’Blazin’ kicks off it’s book tour at The Comic Bug on September, 2015. Manhattan Beach’s number one comic book store was party central with live music, tons of comic books, nachos, drinks and of course, the geeks (and those associated with the self-proclaimed geeks).
Next stop: The Golden Apple in Los Angeles THIS Wednesday on September 16, 2015. Check out the event page for more information.

The Comic Bug stepped it up several notches during this year’s Free Comic Book Day — for the first time, our favorite comic book store hosted Free Comic-Con Day! The event was held at the Culver City Teen Center and housed a large artist alley inside the building, which overflowed into the parking lot. That’s where we set up shop along with our fellow creators and geeks.

Vito Lapiccola from Comics on Comics joins the Space Pirate Queen and Gizzy B at The Comic Bug in Manhattan Beach for a night of drinking (one bottle of beer each… we crazy). We re-watch Tokyo Drift together and this is the first half of our movie ramblings.
The cast of Hollow Ship returns on the Defective Geeks podcast, this time with creators and actors, Curtis Fortier, Helen McElwain and Steve Shaw. We delve into finalizing episode 00 and what it’s like to wrap up a Kickstarter project… all while we took over The Comic Bug in Culver City and drank wine!
Let’s admit it, geeks. These days, we take ourselves, our community and our fandom way too seriously. We are a sensitive bunch with teddy bear hearts and we want to love our comic books so bad it makes us cry some times. With that said, a new web series premiered online today and it is called Geek Cred. Now, the word ‘cred’ already implies things on many different levels. It’s a brave word to use in a title that also has the word ‘Geek’ in it and for many, it might be taken on as a challenge.
You can watch the first episode now online but I had seen the show last Sunday at the premiere party with the cast and crew at Busby’s in Los Angeles. How did I feel after I saw it? I felt pretty darn good.
Once again, Defective Geeks joined The Comic Bug for another round of Free Comic Book Day last Saturday. We arrived before the event opened that morning and I was amazed at the long line that was already waiting outside of the store! All kinds of free books waited inside the Bug, from children’s comics to horror to your classic Batman or Avengers. I just wanted to grab everything and run. There was also quite a number of great artists who were offering free sketches to anyone who had lined up to get their free books. There were also balloon animals and face painting for the kids — or adults!
