Wed Oct 16: Gene Luen Yang at Flying Colors!

Award winning writer/cartoonist Gene Luen Yang returns to Flying Colors to debut Superman Smashed the Klan.

The background:
Throughout the summer of 1946, on the Adventures of Superman radio show, the Man of Steel dealt with the Clan of the Fiery Cross, with the fictional bigots standing in for the real-world Ku Klux Klan.

Debuting October 16, 2019, Superman is going to return to the fight with Superman Smashes the Klan, a three-part serial by American Born Chinese author and MacArthur Fellowship recipient Gene Luen Yang adapting and updating the famous radio storyline for a contemporary comic book audience.

Watch this! Jack Katz in conversation with Liam Sharp and FlyCoJoe

A very cool part of FlyCo Mini Indie-Con 2019 was having Jack Katz as our Special Guest.

Jack's first comics' work was published in 1943... meaning he's been at this comics' thing for more than 75 years! Along with that experience comes a healthy dose of wisdom and pointed opinions.

In the first part of this wide-ranging interview,  Jack Katz talks with artist Liam Sharp and FlyCoJoe about the interior life of being an artist. He shares advice for aspiring cartoonists, including this poignant gem: ""Honor the creative tide within you."




In the final part of our talk with Jack Katz, he tells a few stories of some of the great artists he has worked with over the last 75 years. Alex Raymond, Hal Foster, Jack Kirby, Will Eisner, Stan Lee...

Wed Sep 25 is National Comic Book Day























Like it says above, National Comic Book Day is a pseudo-holiday. It's been on some calendars for more more than 40 years, but not many know what it is or whether anyone needs to care about it.

Back in 2017, I posted a thread on Twitter about National Comic Book Day. You can read that thread HERE!
In 2019, National Comic Book Day also falls on our weekly New Comic Book Day (#NCBD).
Isn't a great invitation to visit Flying Colors? 
In addition to dozens of new comics being released Wed Sep 25, Flying Colors will have something else new. Join us for this little surprise.
