It is on.
FREE COMIC BOOK DAY IS THIS SATURDAY!
And if you’re in the LA area, I’ll be signing at 4 Color Fantasies in Rancho Cucamonga from 11a to 4p!
I’ll be joining the BOOM! Studios crew and signing copies of CBGB: The Comic Book. Not only that, I have some of the limited edition CBGB print with art by Rob G. to give away!
(And apparently, you can get your picture taken with Superman and Batman.)
HAPPY FREE COMIC BOOK DAY!
I am getting all up in your rainy embrace this weekend for Emerald City Comicon.
I will be signing the collected version of CBGB: The Comic Book at the following time and location:
Saturday March 5th from 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM @ the BOOM! Studios Booth # 502.
As per Shumphries tradition, I will be giving away a print of one of my photos during the show. The first person to come up to me and say, “I AM A WETSHIRT!” will get a print of a photo of their choice.
It’s always a good time at the BOOM booth, come on down and say hi. Plus it’s my first time in Seattle, I dare you to show me what SEATAC is all about.
It’s words you never thought you’d hear, CBGB SELLS OUT! Shocking, punk rocking, comic series CBGB #1 and #2 has sold out everywhere!
WHOA. They announced this while I was in New York, my CBGB comic book is GONE!
(Fortunately, my story will be included in the big collected CBGB book coming out on November 17th.)
THANK YOU to everyone who went out and bought a copy! I love you!!

IT’S CBGB DAY!! Today is the day my new comic book comes out!
To celebrate, I did an interview with you:
1. What is CBGB: The Comic Book?
It’s one part love letter, one part distorted guitar solo, one part back room make out session, and twelve parts whiskey. Punks and drunks.
2. Awesome! When does it come out?
TODAY! Wednesday, July 21st, 2010.
3. Where can I pick one up?
At any comic book store near you. If you don’t where to find one, this handy comic shop locator service will help you out!
4. Uh…where else can I pick it up?
In LA I recommend Meltdown and The Secret Headquarters; in NYC, either Midtown Comics locations; in Chicago, Quimbys; in Portland, Floating World; in Toronto, The Beguiling; in SF, the one and only Isotope!
5. Hey, how about that CBGB art print?
That’s available today too, and it’s FREE! Limited edition of 500! If you want to get your hands on one, you have three options:
- Go to one of these 15 comic book stores throughout the US and Canada (two stores each in LA and NYC, for example)
- Stop by the BOOM! Studios booth at San Diego Comic Con (booth 2743)
- Take a pic of yourself, post it online, and we’ll send one to you!
6. Why should I buy it?
Since this is my second comic, every copy that gets sold is a big deal. But we’re also really psyched on the results and think you’re gonna dig it.
HUGE THANKS to everyone who goes out there and grabs one, it means a lot!
7. What should I tell them?
Tell them I LOVE SAM HUMPHRIES COMIC BOOKS!
|Diana:||I have a friend who is a comic book writer!|
|Me:||No shit, who?|
That’s me holding one of our limited edition CBGB art prints. Rob G. and I made 500 of them to celebrate the release of our story “The Helsinki Syndrome” in CBGB: The Comic Book.
But what if you don’t live near one of those stores, and you aren’t going to Comic Con? We got your backs! What we’re gonna do is give these prints away online too, right here. How do you get one?
- Buy a copy of CBGB: The Comic Book #1, out Wednesday, July 21st.
- Take a picture while holding the comic book, similar to what I did above. But show more of your beautiful faces.
- Post the picture to your Tumblr, Twitter, or Facebook.
- Email the link to me: firstname.lastname@example.org
We’ll keep giving them away until we run out! So don’t be shy, flash your CBGB, and we’ll give you the gorgeous goods. Proper.
