The Ghost has done it again!

SAGA, the Image Comics series by writer Brian K Vaughan and artist Fiona Staples is perhaps the biggest break-out new hit series of 2012!

What is SAGA? 
Two soldiers from opposite sides of a torturous galactic war fall in love and then risk everything to bring a fragile new life into a dangerous old universe. Writer Brian K. Vaughan (New York Times bestselling writer of Y: The Last Man and Ex Machina) works with acclaimed artist Fiona Staples, making Saga the widescreen epic of one young family fighting to find their place in the worlds. Fantasy and science fiction lovers love SAGA!

Pictured here is the limited edition GHOST VARIANT for SAGA #7, with art by Paul Pope and color art by Fiona Staples. This special Ghost Variant is only available from a relative handful of comic shops all over North America... and of course, Flying Colors is one of those featured outlets. 

With the recent release of
SAGA Volume One compiling the first six issues of the series for the great price of $9.99, and today's release of Saga #7, there's never been a better time to jump on this series.

We hope to see you in the store soon so we can tell you about this cool series!



(For those too far away to drive to Flying Colors in Concord, we have copies of SAGA #7 Ghost Variant Edition available at

Oakland Coliseum in the Twilight Zone!'s amazing what kinds of odd and unexpected shots I can get using the "panorama" setting in Apple's iOs 6 for the iPhone.

Notice: No "Mount Davis"---just clear blue sky. Though it's somewhat pesky that the tarped third deck is collapsing into the Coliseum's Plaza level.

Here's my off-season hope that a deal will get done for a new ballpark at Jack London Square in downtown Oakland. The symmetry of having the SF Giants' west-side waterfront ball-park face a new A's East Bay-side waterfront ballpark would be wonderful for the entire Bay Area.

95 days 'til pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training 2013!

Marvel NOW! Come & Get 'em!
