WE-STAND-ON-GUARD
IMAGE COMICS, BRIAN K. VAUGHAN & STEVE SKROCE ANNOUNCE SIGNING WARS

It’s Canada vs. the U.S.A. in an international signing tour to promote the release of WE STAND ON GUARD #1, writer Brian K. Vaughan’s first new book since SAGA, and a return to comics for legendary Hollywood storyboard artist (and proud Canadian) Steve Skroce.

WE STAND ON GUARD is an action-packed military thriller about a futuristic conflict between Canada and the United States, so in honor of their story, the creators will be appearing together at two different signings, one in each of their home countries.

Both events are free to the public, and the oversized 40-page first issue of WE STAND ON GUARD is only $2.99! Brian and Steve will be happy to sign whatever readers bring, time and lines permitting. You must purchase We Stand Guard from Meltdown Comics or other merchandise to get stuff signed.

Meltdown Comics presents
FOSSIL VS. FANTASY
Dinosaur discussion with Paleontologists
Dr. Robert Bakker, Houston Museum of Natural Science

LIVE from Alamo Drafthouse, Denver

Monday June 15, 2015 – Meltdown Comics is excited to present an exclusive live streaming event with renowned paleontologists Matt Mossbrucker (National Geographic’s T-REX AUTOPSY) and Dr. Robert Bakker (DINO DEATH MATCH). Discover how the dinosaurs from JURASSIC WORLD compare to the fossil record in a sold-out event presented by Morrison Museum of Natural History in Denver, Colorado.

In his exciting follow up to Nat Geo Channel’s acclaimed special T-Rex Autopsy, curator Matt Mossbrucker will unveil the latest research in dinosaur exploration. “It’s really exciting to connect this generation of kids with ancient beasts of earth’s history” says Mr. Mossbrucker. “Working with Meltdown Comics we are able to spread our love of paleontology worldwide.”

Meltdown Comics CEO Gaston Dominguez-Letelier is proud to extend the educational arm of Meltdown University. “Artists have been inspired by dinosaurs since the beginning of drawing on cave walls. This unique partnership with the Morrison Museum extends the reach of MeltU and hopefully starts a new era in dino drawing.”

Alamo Drafthouse Denver is hosting this exclusive event which also includes a performance by TED talk alumni Ian Cooke playing a new dinosaur-themed musical piece. Fans are encouraged to visit Alamo Drafthouse to see full size dinosaur bones and connect with these renowned paleontologists.
