Special Event Saturday!
Well, I got all the details figured out, then sent an email to everyone on the FlyCo Email Brigade (to sign up, look to the left on this page, enter your email address, then click 'join'). I then posted the info to our Facebook Fan page, talked to numerous people about in the store...
...but forgot to post anything here on the Flying Colors' blog. For that, I apologize.
So what the heck is HULK SMASH! Brownie Saturday?
It's an excuse to have a party, starting with FlyCo Libby's amazing Hulk Smash Brownies (dark chocolate brownies with creme de menthe filling smothered in another dark chocolate coating).
Libby's brownies are famous for their popularity every year on Free Comic Book Day, but we thought it might be nice to have them on a less crazy day. How much less crazy, I don't know. We'll find out Saturday.
But wait---THERE'S MORE!
We will be giving away some comic books! This is NOT "another FCBD"---nothing beats that amazing day. This will be more low-key--again how low-key we'll see on Saturday.
Be here for the shooting of the first ever Geek Speak Video Show! We'll have some room for a "studio audience" but not a lot, so get here in time for the 12 noon shooting. There will be audience participation... and maybe even some prizes for participating.
Part of that participation will be the chance to do your own COMICS SLAM! Simply bring in the comic book that features your favorite single character monologue. If you are chosen, you will dramatically perform your character monologue for the GEEK SPEAK VIDEO SHOW!
View one of FlyCoJoe's COMIC SLAM! dramatic readings from a past event:
• For the artists among our fans and friends, we will also be attempting a COMICS JAM!
What's a Comics Jam? It starts with a single panel to open our story, then artists will be encouraged to add their own single panels to make up one complete (and hopefully cohesive) story. If you would like to participate in the Comics Jam, we urge you to show up at 11:30 to schedule your 15 minutes of drawing time to add to the Comics Jam.
• For those who like to draw but aren't sure about being part of Comics Jam, we'll have drawing material for you to do your own piece to add to Flying Colors Fan Art Wall!
• DEALS! Flying Colors Blow-Out Book Bargain section will be stocked up for this event with graphic novels and comics compilations as much as 80% off. And everyoneattending our event on Saturday June 9 will receive a Special Coupon to use that day (our sneaky way to get you here)!
What this party is all about, the crux of HULK SMASH! BROWNIE DAY is really a massive "THANK YOU" to all Flying Colors Faithful for making May 2012 the all-time best month in the 24 year history of Flying Colors Comics & Other Cool Stuff.
We wouldn't be here without your continued support, so the best way we can say "THANKS!" is to make Flying Colors a place where everyone can have a great time while discovering new comics & other cool stuff.
Hope to see you Saturday!
