There and Back Again

It seems Chicago ended only yesterday, and here I am, once again getting ready to leave town. This time, Lar, Moss, Will and myself are heading for the magical town of ‘Calgary’.

We’ll be at the Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo for the duration of the weekend, where you can find us loitering at Booth #725.

If that wasn’t enough, we’re also doing a panel on the 29th at 3:30 in room Palomino FG. I would suggest attending, as we may decide to show you something that may literally blow your mind. BLOWN.

See you in the north, kids.

On the Road Again


I just got back last night from a Legoland visit with my eldest son, and while I wish I had the time to bask in the glow of brick creation, I’m forced to prepare for another journey.

In less than 24 hours, I’ll board a plane bound for Chicago, where Lar, Costello, Stone and myself will be attending C2E2 (I’m sure that stands for something, but I bet it’s too long to type).

You can find us at Booth #1453 for the duration of the weekend, where we’ll have plenty of fun stuff for you.

In addition, Lar and I are doing a panel on Friday at 11:15am, Room S405b. We will no doubt charm and entertain you.

Hope to see you in the land of the deep dish, folks.

Comic Bento?

As you may or may not know, one of the pies we have our fingers in around here is the subscription box service, Comic Bento (

Comic Bento is similar to a lot of subscription box services with one exception: There’s no junk. We pack the box with 4-5 Graphic Novels every month, hand-selected to fit our theme and that’s it! All killer, no filler!  

We work with big-name publishers like Marvel and Image, to mid-sized folk like Valiant and Dynamite, right down to more indie fare like Oni and Aspen! It’s about finding the best books that fit with the theme, and Moss and the Bento team work hard to get them onto your shelf.  

I bring this up because we have a pretty great box this month and if you’ve ever been interested in trying something like Comic Bento, now’s the time. 

The theme for the month is OUT OF RETIREMENT, which means the books we’ve chosen have the common thread of people coming back, returning to lives they thought left behind, and in most cases, doing a hell of a lot of ass-kicking along the way! I won’t spoil the whole box, but there’s a major Marvel book in this one that’s title rhymes with SHMOLD SHMAN SHLOGAN. 

If you want to check it out before subscribing, you can actually see everything that’s in the OUT OF RETIREMENT collection via our friend Anthony’s unboxing video ( but you want to keep the surprise intact and give Bento a try, simply head on over to As a special treat for LICD readers, we’ve created the savings code LICDBENTO which will give you 25% off any subscription when entered at checkout! 


You’ve got until March 31st to sign up and use the code, but don’t delay! We’ve got a limited number of boxes each month, and OUT OF RETIREMENT is going fast!
