Brave New Update
for March 4th
Run along now…time to follow the funny book store that you adore….I’ll wait….
Seems we’re pretty good at it….
“This seller is excellent. FAST shipping. Product was even better than I expected. If I see Brave New World as the seller Ill buy it with 1 click and no worries, Luv you guys, Thanx,Jim”
IT’S SUPER LIFE DRAWING!
(AS IN TOMORROW!)
7:ish on the dot! DON’T MISS IT!
Work in any medium you like, so long as you clean it up!
As always, the intrepid rock star of the funny book world, Mister Chris Johnson, will be on hand to guide your hand to artistic supremacy.
So, Chris called me last night, and told me that he’d like to have a really large class this week…because it’s his birthday!! He was pretty adamant about it, and suggested that I use “a lot more f words” to get your attention about tomorrow’s class.
Super Life Drawing….an anatomy and FIGURE drawing class that we hold once a month with costumed characters as models….is FUN!
Chris Johnson, the acclaimed and FRANKLY delightful artist who teaches them is FANTASTIC.
And this month,
the class is FREE.
Yep! In honor of Chris’ wishes to make his birthday class super big and FABULOUS, we’re waiving the $10 class FEE (sorry, it starts with an F!). So, if you’ve ever thought about putting pencil to paper, and giving it all a go, well, here’s your chance!!!
Class begins promptly at approximately 7pm.
*Always looking for more models, lovelies!
It pays, it’s fun, and you get to wear your fancy costumes in public. Win/win/nerd!
Lemme know if’n you wanna give it a go!
WEDNESDAY @ 6PM
ONLY AT BNW!
Benjamin Byrne is a teenage boy who exists in an overly idyllic world. After years of depression over the loss of his Father, Ben wants to end it all. The attempt passes him through a doorway into our world. Lost and alone; Ben sleeps in a homeless shelter earning money ingesting experimental medicines. However, when the side effects kick in, Ben’s system restarts itself imbuing him with special abilities. With the assistance of Latisha, a volunteer at the shelter, Ben embarks on a journey to uncover why this world cannot metamorphose into the world of the unspoiled.
Sounds fun, no?
Come meet Paul and find out!
SAVE THE DATE, BEAUTIES!

Looks like another great week,
See something you want?
Email me, baby!
Say…thinking about going digital,
where nobody ever sells out?
Now that it’s all up and spinning like a top,
check it out.
Who knows? You might love it. But if you don’t Shel, Sam, Cam, Ben, and the rest of the BNW crew will be here to help you out. Fuh reals.
Say, wanna hear about all of our super duper keen events first hand? Maybe even have a chance to plan ahead to attend, figure out who else is likely to be here, or just check out the goings on?
Hey! Something you want to play, some event you would love to attend, anything at all you’d like to see us offer? Well, we don’t read minds! TELL US!
FRIDAYS @ 6pm
*FNM @ BNW is a 16 and older event. Thanks!
FatPacks, Intro Decks, and Boosters all in stock, RIGHT NOW!
500 Point Constructed Game
Bring a 500 point team and come play. Normal rules apply! Resources? Sure. Colossals? If you can fit them, why not. Team Base? Go crazy.
All figures are legal this game. FOR REAL.
However, bringing a pure cheese team won’t help you get a prize.
This will be a fellowship only game: Be a good sport, and win a prize!
So start brainstorming the most fun team you can squeeze into 500 points and meet us in the loft on Saturday at 2pm!
Supremacy after the tournament if anyone wants to battle!
See you there!
Remember, Portlyn likes you, so Clix Bricks are always 10% off in store, but pre-ordering them get’s you 20% off!
In related news, and knowing full well that I may get in big trouble for this….please consider contributing to this extremely well intentioned and worthwhile GoFundMe account.
It’s for our dear friend Paul…some of you know him as Roxy from our weekly HeroClix tournaments…who has been dealt one of the worst hands I’ve ever known in recent months.
I’ll make you a deal:
You contribute, prove it to me, and I will match whatever you send him in Brave New Bucks.
Deal? DEAL. Thanks for considering it, you guys. Few people have bigger, kinder, or more generous hearts than the Citizens of the Brave New World.
See? You know him. He’s the silly one who tends to win!
And we absolutely adore him.
Whew! Sorry this week’s Update took so long, you guys. I had so much to tell you!!! Also, I just got back in town, from the great state of Georgia, enjoying the sights, sounds, smells, and oddly abandoned glory of downtown Atlanta. Oh, and also attending the ComicsPRO annual meeting. So many things were learned, my pretties! See? I’m always on the lookout for bigger, better, faster, more. Which means sometimes I’m not in my office when you’re looking for me. Luckily, I have Ben, Jen, Paul, Sam, Autie, Rob, Dan, Greg, and Mom to keep all the plates spinning in my absence. I am a lucky girl. But enough of that claptrap! We’ll be wishing a very happy happy to Chris tomorrow evening at our F word Filled Super Life Drawing Class…and I’m reminded that if it’s his birthday, then I owe a special bday greeting to my sweet friend Liz, and my gorgeous dog daughter, Bay. Followed quickly by a big ole birthday spanking to the Mr.s Hill…..won’t be long til Bruce Willis is another year older, too….and you know what that means…….
Until next time, I’m still…
