Flying Colors Brings Marvel’s Avengers to Pleasant Hill CA
Exclusive New Edition Showcases Local Landmark by Renowned Comics Artist Arthur Adams

Marvel’s mightiest Avengers are among the world’s most popular super-heroes, but starting on March 2, they will be especially popular in beautiful Pleasant Hill California.

Flying Colors Comics, known as one of the world’s best comic book specialty shops, is teaming with Marvel Comics to produce a special limited edition of AVENGERS STANDOFF ALPHA #1 featuring Pleasant Hill’s historic landmark, the Soldier’s Memorial Monument.  This special edition comes with exclusive cover art by fan favorite artist and Contra Costa County resident Arthur Adams.

“This is all about keeping it local and shining the light of super-heroes on this beautiful area,” said Joe Field, owner of the award-winning Flying Colors Comics on Treat Boulevard in Concord, just up the road from Pleasant Hill CA. “The story in this comic book may take place in a fictitious Pleasant Hill, but I’m excited to put together this special edition showcasing the real Pleasant Hill’s most famous landmark. Having local superstar comics artist Arthur Adams do the art for this special edition makes it even cooler.”

The Flying Colors Avengers Standoff Alpha #1 Pleasant Hill special edition will be available exclusively at Flying Colors Comics starting on Wednesday March 2. Flying Colors is at 2980 Treat Boulevard at Oak Grove Road in Concord. The store is open daily from 11am-7pm.

Flying Colors Comics is the longest continuously operating comic book specialty store in Contra Costa County, serving the area since 1988. The store has received numerous awards, including Best of the Bay, A-List and the prestigious Will Eisner “Spirit of Comics” Award for Retailing Excellence.

The Soldier’s Memorial Monument at the corner of Contra Costa Boulevard and Boyd Road in Pleasant Hill CA was dedicated in 1927 and originally built as a memorial to the thousands of Contra Costa County men and women, including 77 fatalities, who served their country during World War I.

With a career spanning more than 30 years, Arthur Adams is a world renowned comics artist whose work includes such popular characters as the X-Men, Fantastic Four, Godzilla, Superman and Gumby.

The Avengers characters appearing on this special limited edition will also be featured in the next blockbuster Marvel movie “Captain America: Civil War” opening in theaters worldwide on May 6.
