Official Press Release
Join Brave New World Comics, this Friday, September 19th, to celebrate their Will Eisner Spirit of Comics Retailing Award. The party begins at 8pm, with live music, live comedy, awesome food, and a really big cake. Nestled in Los Angeles’ Santa Clarita Valley, Brave New World has been bringing pop culture goodness to the masses for more than 18 years. Owners Portlyn and Atom! Freeman cordially invite you to join them to celebrate their being named amongst the best comic book shops in the world. “It’s a tremendous honor to be nominated, but receiving the award was amazing!”, says Portlyn. “I hope everyone can come out this Friday, and celebrate with us!”. Featuring local bands Crime After Crime, The Edge of Man, and the funky white boy of blue eyed soul, Philip Clark, the store will certainly be rockin’. Bringing the ‘funny’, is the Little Orphan Army, a comedy impov troupe, straight from the Second City Training Center LA. Long time store supporters, Spumoni Restaurant and Rattlers BarBQue, will be supplying the tasty eats, and BNW will be offering samples of the more than a dozen specialty sodas that they sell out of a pink, antique fridge on their sales floor. Clarice’s Cakes owner, Nancy, who just happens to be the grandmother of one of the many art students at The World, will be providing the ‘really big cake’. Along with the music, comedy, food, and cake, there will be surprise guests (can’t tell you who: it’s a surprise), door prizes, and fun for everyone! The Will Eisner Spirit of Comics Retailer Award, presented under the auspices of Comic-Con International: San Diego, is given to an individual retailer who has done an outstanding job of supporting the comics art medium both in their community and within the industry at large.
