Local news – Oct 18, 2008

• The Capes Comics Lounge newsletter debuted this week, including a report that MURS stopped in the store (he had a show at the neighboring Waiting Room Wednesday night) and a much appreciated Doomkopf.com shout-out. Capes’ website is also back online at CapesComics.com.

• After picking up half a million back issues this summer, Legend Comics has begun naming a “Featured 500,000 Comic of the Week” at its online store. This week’s selection is Daredevil #181. Legend is still offering 25% off all back issues every Saturday and Sunday for the rest of 2008.

• Krypton Comics will have reps at Screaming Tiki Comic Con in Niles, Ohio this weekend.

As we wrote last week, Krypton will also be an exhibitor at the 6th annual KidzExplore Treat Street event, Saturday October 25th at the Mid-America Center in Council Bluffs. The MAC will be decorated to provide a safe and fun environment for trick-or-treaters.

• Doom DeLuise, Fin Fang Doom, Colonel Doom, Doom! Where’s My Car?, Doomanchoo and I will all be at Krypton today participating in 24 Hour Comics Day starting at noon. I’ll be live blogging throughout the 24 hour period whenever there’s something worth sharing, so check back in periodically for updates.
