There are many moments in time that stick with us years after they happen.  Where were you during the moon landing?  Where were you when Mr. Rogers first invited us to be his neighbor?  Which of Spider Man’s Uncle’s numerous deaths effected you the most?!  There are moments in time and pop culture that truly define who we are and who we will become, and one of those moments was the first time you hear the words “ITS MORPHIN’ TIME!”  Meltdown in conjunction with Saban and Lion’s Gate are pleased to announce our “Morphenomenal Art Show” happening here at Meltdown Comics in Hollywood on March 12th, 2017.

The Power Rangers return to the big screen this spring, on March 24th, 2017.  We go back to basics as we witness the tale of the original five Rangers told in a new way for a new generation as they battle Rita Repulsa to save Earth!  To celebrate this momentous occasion we are hosting an art show celebrating over 2 decades of Power Rangers action!  We have collected, and curated pieces from talented artists across the country who have a deep passion and love for the franchise.  Join us as we celebrate this new frontier in Power Rangers Lore.

On March 8, Meltdown Comics will celebrate the launch of ALL TIME COMICS, the most anticipated and unexpected superhero comic event of the year. Acclaimed director Samuel Bayer, who launched his career 25 years ago with Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” video and went on to direct videos for the likes of Green Day, the Strokes, and more, is now working on his (arguably) most outside-the-box project yet: in collaboration with his brother, indie comic book creator Josh Bayer, Sam has created a superhero universe, ALL TIME COMICS.

Come celebrate the launch of ALL TIME COMICS with an open bar featuring cocktails specially crafted in honor of the ALL TIME COMICS superheroes: Crime Destroyer! Bullwhip! Atlas! and Blind Justice! Bringing a truly retro, punk vibe back to comics, ALL TIME COMICS is published by Fantagraphics, the publisher of the world’s greatest cartoonists like the Hernandez Bros (LOVE & ROCKETS) and Tony Millionaire (DRINKY CROW). Get the first-ever issue of ALL TIME COMICS, CRIME DESTROYER #1 signed by some of the book’s creators, including Sam and Josh, at Meltdown Comics. Let’s party like it’s 1979!

Samuel Bayer also recently announced his ALL TIME COMICS short film starring LaMonica Garrett (DESIGNATED SURVIVOR, SONS OF ANARCHY) as the title character in ALL TIME COMICS, CRIME DESTROYER #1. Denise Schaefer, who has modeled in campaigns for GUESS and Marciano, stars as Bullwhip opposite punk rock icon Steve Jones (The Sex Pistols; The Professionals) appears as her enemy. Rounding out the cast are Maitland Ward (BOY MEETS WORLD), Jackie Chan’s stunt crew, and acclaimed Stunt Coordinator Eddie Braun (THE AVENGERS).
