Upcoming Events

 

Creator Signing – Jordan Hart (Doppelganger, Terminarch)
Wednesday November 15th

One of our Culver customers has a new mini-series coming out from Alterna called Doppelganger! Jordan describes it as “a buddy-supernatural story with a healthy amount of humor (think Fright Night from 1985).” Great, I love Fright Night! His new book comes out November 15th and he’ll be promoting it at the Culver store that day. Come by and check it out!
