Madefire Story Night @ Flying Colors, Thur 3/7 @ 6PM

Flying Colors Comics is excited to announce our next FlyCo Fans Pizza Night will be Thursday March 7 at 6PM. We'll be serving pizza, beer & sodas in our ongoing effort to build a bigger and better Bay Area comics community--- one slice at a time!

We're excited to announce this event will feature the ultra-talented crew from Madefire, setting the digital comics world on fire with their Madefire app for the iPhone and iPad. 

We’ll have iPads loaded up with all of Madefire's titles during the pizza night so you can see for yourself the fantastic things Madefire does with its Motion Books. Bring your friends, and appetite for food, drink and stories.

Here's a brief video about Madefire: 

Will Eisner Week at Flying Colors

Will Eisner (1917 –  2005) is widely regarded as the father of the American graphic novel. 

He was a pioneer in the field of comic books, as an artist, writer & studio head. He was the creator The Spirit, a character that was in newspaper strip, comics, TV and movies. 

Flying Colors joins in the celebration of "Will Eisner Week" March 1-10 in two ways: 

1) Every Eisner graphic novel is 20% off from March 1-10. This is great chance for those who haven't yet experienced Eisner's creative force. 

2) We are also asking anyone who would like to participate to come into Flying Colors and let us know you would like to go on video with either a tribute to Will Eisner or thoughts about what graphic novels mean to you. 

We also encourage everyone to get into the Spirit of "Will Eisner Week" by reading a graphic novel.
