Hellboy Day

March 22 marks the twentieth anniversary of Mike Mignola's career-defining release of Hellboy: Seed of Destruction #1.

We are the only store in Maine that carries these extremely limited covers, so this is a unique opportunity to have one of these special covers signed by the artist!

Rich modeled the TMNT #22 Phantom Variant off of Todd McFarlane’s cover art for Hulk #340! It’s a great cover, and we’re really excited to host Rich for this event!

Free Comic Book Day
May 4, 2013

Come get some free crap!

Way more importantly, Bob Camp will be here! Yes. THE Bob Camp!! He'll be here all day selling merch, doing sketches and commissions, and signings! Come hang out!

We're also going to be featuring the musical stylings of Uke Skywalker Meets Mando Calrissian!

And there'll probably be some cool costumed weirdos walking around!

First Friday: Nicktoons!
Feb. 1, 2013

5:30pm until 9:00pm in EST

You know the deal, guys. This is an open call for art. The theme this month is Nicktoons! If you, like me, grew up watching these twisted little cartoons, then you know that there are a TON of characters to choose from. Draw your favorite Nicktoon in your own style! Make Nicktoons act out your favorite scenes from Star Wars! I'm expecting an "Aaah! Real Monsters!" Cantina Scene from someone. Make it happen!

We'll also be doing a Nicktoons themed Drink & Draw at LFK the Wednesday before First Friday. We have a special treat for you, too! The special guest will be illustration/animation legend and co-creator of Ren & Stimpy, BOB CAMP! Join us!

First Friday will be Friday 2/1/13 & the Drink & Draw will be on the 1/30/13!

The only requisite that we have is that the piece you do is ready to hang on the wall. That's it! Have fun!

If you have any questions, then please feel free to email Chad at

FIRST FRIDAY: The World of Jim Henson
Aug. 3, 2012

5:30pm until 9:30pm

Jim Henson is one of the greatest human beings to ever live. This is why we want to celebrate his amazing creations with an art show that will showcase work inspired by them. Whether it's a mixed media piece of Kermit in the swamp or a felt and needle piece of Gelflings riding land striders, we want it here.

I'm only accepting work that can be hung on the wall. I don't have the space for statues or anything like that. I do ask that whatever you produce is in a frame that can be hung on a wall. Those are my only requirements. Other than that, go to town!

The deadline for submissions will be 8/2/12.

If you have any questions, then please email them to
