Geek Girls Night 3: She Makes Comics World Premiere!

It’s time for Geek Girls Night THREE and wow do we ever have an amazing night lined up for you!

We are SO proud and honored to have been included in Respect Films’ newest documentary, She Makes Comics! This film tells the untold, little known, and downright cool history of women in the comic book industry…including those who choose to own and operate award winning funny book super stores (just sayin). We at Brave New World are delighted to be hosting the super snazzy, red carpet, tuxedos optional, world premiere of this fantastic, long overdue movie! You do NOT want to miss it!

In fact, since it’s going to be so great, we’ve decided to INVITE THE BOYS to join us, just this once. You’re welcome, fellas.

Admission to this event will be just $5 at the door, which will get you $5 to spend in the store! (*cough, cough* Geek Boutique *ahem*) In addition to screening the film, we will also have our usual unusually awesome Geeky Manicures, a Creator’s Lounge (meet, greet, sketch, selfie, sign!), and of course, following the movie, an exclusive Q&A PANEL DISCUSSION with the filmmakers and super special guests!!!!

And you know those Greaty Boxes that you’ve heard so much about? Oh, just you wait…the first 25 of you through the door at 5pm on Saturday, November 15th will receive one of these legendary gifts. Fear not, late-comers! We’ll cook up something fun for everybody. Promise!

Walking Dead Day & Main Street Zombie March

Sunday, October 12th @ 4pm

It’s dusk on Main Street in Los Angeles’ Santa Clarita Valley. In the beautiful Old Town Newhall district, all around you law abiding citizens are going in and out of shops, carrying the day’s groceries and heading to their cozy suburban homes for an idyllic evening with the family.

Off in the distance, you hear a low moan. As the peculiar moaning becomes louder, you see a wave of human shapes coming toward you. Backlit by the autumn sunset, their identities are masked, but when the shambling army comes into view, you realize, horrified, that there is something very wrong with them…….

They are walking dead and they are after living flesh.

ORRRRRRRRRRR….it’s Brave New World Comics’ annual zombie march and SCV Food Pantry canned food drive!

In years past, we have been able to gather more than 3 tons…literal TONS…of food for our friends at the Food Pantry. Thank you for being so generous!! Well, having spoken to the Director of the Pantry, we have come to find out that your extremely generous donations last about 3 hours. That’s it. We at Brave New World find that information devastating, and truly hope that we can make this a record breaking year for non-perishable food donations! And here’s how we plan to make that happen….

Our good friends at Skybound Entertainment….you may have heard of them: they created and publish a little known comic book called The Walking Dead….are donating some VERY cool (read: signed, rare, awesome, Robert Kirkman flavored) items for us to raffle off to you fine (and generous!) folks. But, how do you get a ticket? YOU DONATE! Tickets are $1 each, OR, you’ll get one ticket for each can (or box) of food you donate. 3 cans of tuna = 3 raffle tickets. 12 pack of Mac and Cheese? That’ll get you TWELVE tickets. Get it? The more you donate, the more tickets you get to win amazing prizes in our amazing raffle of amazement.

Much like our super cool Doctor Who Day event, Walking Dead Day is gonna cost you $5 at the door, but we’ll give you $5 to spend in the store. We’re swell that way!

We’ll also be offering zombie manicures (RAD), a Walking Dead trivia contest, zombie photo booth, and….you think you know us so well…..GOODIE BAGS for the first 25 people in line @ 4pm on Sunday, October 12th.

Feel free to come in your finest zombie finery (or Rick….ooh, or Darryl….MICHONNE!), because at sundown, we’ll be taking a little stroll….something like a zombie march, if you will….and I know you will……

But don’t shamble too far away, because as soon as we all get to Terminus (or back to BNW…..whatever…) we’ll be screening the much-anticipated return of The Walking Dead on AMC.

And remember: Those mountains of food we’ve all donated in the past? It didn’t even last a day. Let’s break some records, people!!!!

Lumberjanes Release Party

Wednesday, April 16th @ 6pm

Brave New World Comics invites you to a Lumberjanes #1 Release Party with creators Noelle Stevenson (creator of the popular webcomic, Nimona,) and Shannon Watters (editor at BOOM! Studios).

Noelle and Shannon will be on hand to discuss the long-awaited, much-aniticpated Lumberjanes #1, as well as autograph those shiny new bad boys for you!

Come dressed as a Lumberjane ready to kick some butt, and you’ll be eligible to win a super-nifty prize!

WHY WE LOVE IT: Five best friends spending the summer at Lumberjane scout camp…defeating yetis, three-eyed wolves, and giant falcons…what’s not to love?!

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT:It’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer meets Gravity Falls and features five butt-kicking, rad teenage girls wailing on monsters and solving a mystery with the whole world at stake. And with the talent of acclaimed cartoonist Noelle Stevenson, talented newcomer Grace Ellis writing, and Brooke Allen on art, this is going to be a spectacular series that you won’t want to miss.

WHAT IT’S ABOUT: Jo, April, Mal, Molly and Ripley are five best pals determined to have an awesome summer together…and they’re not gonna let any insane quest or an array of supernatural critters get in their way! Not only is it the second title launching in our new BOOM! Box imprint but LUMBERJANES is one of those punk rock, love-everything-about-it stories that appeals to fans of basically all excellent things.
