Pulp Fiction Newsletter Week of 3/29/17

On a personal note, for those LB customers that know me, my Hodgkin’s Lymphoma is officially in remission and I will be returning to the store full time starting next week.  I’m looking forward to seeing everyone and catching up on comics talk from the past 10 months.  Corollary to that, I am celebrating my remission and my band’s 10th Anniversary at the new House of Blues Anaheim on April 22nd.  The link for the info is below and, in case I forgot to mention before, most of our music is free to check out on our website.  Thanks and see you at the bottom!

Is everyone ready for Wondercon this weekend?  It’s always one of my favorite conventions of the year so I highly recommend attending.  It’s an exciting week for graphic novels as we get new TP Volumes of Invincible and Saga, the first volume of Black Hammer, and the complete HC collection of Velvet (an amazing and, I think, underrated series from Brubaker and Epting)!
