Reload the Bubble

Tomorrow is a pretty big day for comic book fans across North America, a lot of stores, especially in the GTA will be hosting different kind of Superman Man of Steel kind of events in store. So go down, get a free All-Star Superman comic, a free poster and also be sure to check the all new Unchained Superman, by the creative team of Scott Snyder and Jim Lee. However with that out of the way I wanted to bring your attention to another really cool release going on tomorrow as well, which is part of Aspen comics 10th anniversary event during the summer, 10 for 10, in which every month Aspen will be releasing a new series with the first issue being only $1! A neat feature with this line of comics is stores across the country are encouraged to find different comic book artist and get them to draw unique store only covers. Here at Spent Pencils, we've had the chance to have some of our artist draw up a few of these covers. The very talented Vince Sunico and Daniel Wong had a chance to do a few of these covers for Stadium Comics! And now Oliver CastaƱeda and Paul Limgenco will be working together to bring a unique cover for Gotham Central Comics, for the Aspen comic series, BubbleGun! And the best part is, this comic will be available tomorrow at Gotham Central, and both artist will be on site for signing! I will post links for this event and the one that is taking place at Stadium Comics, and they will also be having a unique cover for BubbleGun, by the very talented Toronto artist, Adam Gorham.

To bring everyone up to speed with tomorrow's release, here is the general idea behind the plot for BubbleGun...

"They like the tech, but live for the high stakes! Sisters Molli and Devyn, along with teammates Roman and Kyo—and a stockpile of cutting edge, cyber-punk technology, form a confident team of mercenary thieves able to take on the most formidable jobs around. Yet, when one cyber heist turns out to be more than they bargained for, as a mysterious package and its contents threaten to unravel the group to its core, the menacing worlds of corrupt industry and deadly espionage is unleashed upon them! "

So if this does sound like a pretty cool story that you want to get into, be sure to check it out. And if that doesn't get you going, got a few exclusive images here that will get you going in no time. Here is a sneak preview of the cover from Oliver and Paul. The first image is the pencils only and the second is the coloured finished image.

So there you have it, so if you live anywhere in the GTA, no reason not to go down and get a copy of these covers! There are limited in numbers, so act fast and get yours today! Also I got a few plugs and links for everyone reading today, the first one is for an awesome web ongoing web comic series, Tales of Lost, by the very talented Tiffany Medeiros.
