Super-Fly Art Show & Yellow Springs Zombie Walk

On Saturday August 14th, we’ll be doing another one of our legendary Live Art shows, featuring live music from resident DJ JFX316 and some of the best artists in the Miami Valley who will be drawing, sketching, painting and otherwise plying their crafts for you, their adoring public. This month the show will be from 2pm to 7pm and we’ll be having a special theme: Zombies! Not only is it a them rife with artistic possibilities, it goes well with the other big event of the day: The Second Annual Yellow Springs Zombie Walk!

The Yellow Springs Zombie Walk is a non-profit charity event benefiting Home, Inc. Participants are encouraged to bring a cash or non-perishable food donation for Home Inc, and there will also be a charity raffle featuring items from us, the Import House, Brother Bear’s Coffee and more. At 8pm on Saturday the 14th, the Zombie walk will begin and proceed through the downtown Yellow Springs area, culminating in a free live performance at 100 Corry Street by local metal legends Doctor Meat.

It’s a full day of art, music and zombie shenanigans all for free and a good cause.

Super-Fly August Previews Digest

Each Month Diamond Comics puts out their catalog of comics & items shipping in the next two months (and sometimes beyond).

We’ve got you covered! If you’re interested in the full Previews Experience, remember we do offer Previews free to all of our Subscription customers that would like it.

Comics & Items Shipping July 28th

It should come as no surprise to anyone that Scott Pilgrim was our best seller last week. What will take the cake this week? Who knows, but I will point out that we’ll be making our first appearance in the “Shop Talk” section of Wizard magazine. Does this mean we’ve made it to the big time? I’d like to think we were already there, but I suppose that’s for our (hopefully) adoring public to decide.

We’ve got a fair amount of Batman this week, with THE RETURN OF BRUCE WAYNE (Coyboy Batman) and the special and regular DVD editions of the animated UNDER THE RED HOOD movie (which is actually pretty damn sweet, if you ask me). Also, Kevin Smith wraps up BATMAN: WIDENING GYRE. Brian Bendis continues his new Ultimate Trilogy with ULTIMATE MYSTERY, wherein the new Ultimate villain may or may not be revealed (that’s probably the mystery). FEAR AGENT returns for its swan song, FLASH shows up after ironically running late, the Top Cow Universe event ARTIFACTS kicks off and Max Brooks continues his examinations of Joes & Cobras in G.I. JOE: HEARTS AND MINDS. Plus, the totally not-controversial WONDER WOMAN comes out. Well, it arrives in stores. Her coming out is a whole ‘nother controversy. Plus, this month’s PREVIEWS catalog is here, so stay tuned for our Previews Digest and the Previews episode of the Super-Fly podcast. Mmm-hmm, good times.

The Yellow Springs Experience, Cirque Carnivale and the 4th Super-Fly Live Art Show

This month Yellow Springs invites the region to become acquainted with everything that makes it special in the form of a 10-day art and cultural extravaganza called Yellow Springs Experience. From July 9-18, the village will be bustling with a flurry of cultural activities. Over 80 events ranging from visual arts workshops, wellness classes, theater and dance performances and art exhibits are scheduled, creating a 360-degree immersive shared experience. There’s all kinds of fun stuff to experience about Yellow Springs, and if you want to see what all the excitement is about, check out www.yellow-springs-experience.org/ for more information and workshop registration.

During the Yellow Springs Experience there will be a Dayton Street “Cirque Carnivale” on Friday the 16th from 6p to 10p. They’ll be closing off Dayton Street for this street carnival which will have jugglers, contortionists, the bed o’ nails, fire spinners, belly dancing, face painting, three bands, and two acoustic acts. Vendors and food will also be available. During the Cirque Carnivale we will be having our 4th Super-Fly Live Art show from 6p to 10p as well. It will be our usual host of artists working and creating to a soundtrack provided by resident DJ JFX316. If you haven’t been to a Super-Fly Art Show before, now you’ll not only get to experience it but the Yellow Springs Experience AND the Cirque Carnivale. It’s a win, win, win!

Comics & Items Shipping THURSDAY July 8th

Once again we pay for our holiday, three-day weekend revels with a Thursday New Comics Day. Here’s hoping that this is one of the last ones of these we see…ever. It is entirely possible, as the Grand Council of Comics are meeting in their secret mountain lair discussing how to make sure that comics come out on a regular day 52 weeks a year. For serious (well, maybe not about the mountain lair part).

This week there’s a bunch of wild stuff coming out. The first wave of BLACKEST NIGHT hardcovers comes out, collecting the series itself and the Green Lantern and Green Lantern Corps issues. Neal Adams returns to one of the (many) characters that made hi9m famous in BATMAN ODYSSEY. CASANOVA, the book that made Matt Fraction “Matt Fraction”, returns in a recolored and remastered edition. Brian Bendis adds more to his plate with his new creator owned book SCARLET with co-conspirator Alex Maleev. Daredevil returns to New York (take pity on New York) kicking off his own non-event event, SHADOWLAND, Steve Rogers revisits his past in STEVE ROGERS: SUPER SOLDIER and the Young Avengers return in AVENGERS: CHILDREN’S CRUSADE. Plus, in a return to continuity weirdness, the second to last part of the “Second Coming” event arrives in X-FORCE and the all new X-MEN #1 (taking place after Second Coming) shows up as well (now with 100% more vampires).

It’s a good week for returns, so be sure to return to us on Thursday so you don’t miss out on any of it!

Click through for the full list of what we’re getting this week.
