Flying Colors will be proud to once again host our long-time friend and fantastically talented comic artist/painter DANIEL BRERETON.
Dan's new art book called "The Goddess and The Monster" has just been released. It's a beautiful full-color art book encompassing Dan's nearly 25 year career (so far!). The book even includes a short piece that I wrote, along with Dan's amazing cover called "Age of Wonder" that he did for our 10th Anniversary Special back in 1998.
So be here on Saturday November 27 at 2PM for Dan's visit here. He'll be happy to sign your books... he'll likely do some sketches and give encouragement to young artists, too. Flying Colors will serve some refreshments, too.
It's always a good time when Dan comes to Flying Colors... lots of great art, stories and even something of a family reunion since Dan spent a good chunk of his younger years in Contra Costa County. So join us Saturday November 27---it'll be an excellent time to pick up on some cool gifts for the comic art lovers you know!
Saturday November 27 also is the first-ever "SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY" sponsored by American Express.
What is "Small Business Saturday"?
"First there was Black Friday, then Cyber Monday. This year, November 27th is the first ever Small Business Saturday, a day to support the local businesses that create jobs, boost the economy and preserve neighborhoods around the country. Small Business Saturday is a national movement to drive shoppers to local merchants across the U.S." More than a dozen advocacy, public and private organizations have already joined American Express OPEN, the company’s small business unit, in declaring the Saturday after Thanksgiving as Small Business Saturday."
Go HERE to get to the "Small Business Saturday" Facebook page and learn even more about the event.

Erik, Jeff and Isaiah signed lots of copies of Savage Dragon #165 for fans and family, and Jeff singed quite a few copies of Captain Four-Color's first comics' appearance in Flying Colors 20th Anniversary Special Edition comic book.

Writer Derek McCulloch and artists Greg Espinosa and Shepherd Hendrix will be here--- so you be here, too, hear?
ITEM: As part of our event this past Saturday, we featured a selection of DEEP DISCOUNT graphic novels and books at 50%, 60% and 75% off! Lots of folks found some spectacular deals and undiscovered gems in the DEEP DISCOUNT book boxes, so we've decided to extend that special sale through Thursday November 4.
