The Golden Apple Comics store was vandalized as part of the protests currently going on across the country in response to the abuse by authority including the murder of citizens by the police.

The store has had a GoFundMe launched to help pay to fix the damages from the protests, increased security, plus costs incured due to COVID-19.

INTO SAMURAI’S BLOOD
On February 29th, starting at 6:00 P.M., Golden Apple Comics present an autograph signing with Owen Wiseman, for the release of SAMURAI’S BLOOD VOL1 PAPERBACK from Image Comics and Benaroya Publishing. In addition, Golden Apple Comics and Owen Wiseman will be giving way FREE copies of Samurai’s Blood #1 comic book for readers looking for a taste of something new and exciting from the Image Comics brand.
Set in feudal Japan, an era when lineage defined you, SAMURAI’S BLOOD involves three teenagers who must make their way through the world hiding their identities in order to find their destinies. As their village burns behind them, they are headed for a city they’d heard about only in stories. The three young samurai must now struggle to stay alive and take vengeance on the evil usurper who has destroyed the rest of their clan and the only world they’d ever known. Will they rise on the tides of vengeance, or they will they fall on the swords of fate?
The critics have raved about SAMURAI’S BLOOD:
“I’ll be picking up the 6-issue run of Samurai’s Blood…I’d suggest you do the same.”IGN
“Samurai’s Blood is just another example of all the great stuff Image Comics is putting together this year…I recommend the entire series.”Comic Book Bin
“One of the best things about Samurai’s Blood is its strong period feel, which is carried in particular by Nam Kim’s idealized yet realistic art and Jo Chen’s more expressionistic covers.”Playback STL
SAMURAI’S BLOOD VOL1 PAPERBACK autograph event will take place in Los Angeles at Golden Apple Comics on February 29th, 2012 from 6-8 P.M. at 7018 Melrose Avenue in Hollywood. For more information, please call 323-658-6047.

Sam Sarkar Unlocks The Vault #1 at Golden Apple Comics

Official Press Release

MEET SAM SARKAR, CREATOR AND WRITER OF THE VAULT

On July 27th, starting at 7:00 P.M., Golden Apple Comics will present an autograph signing with Sam Sarkar, for the release of the new comic book from Image Comics, THE VAULT.

THE VAULT is about a small team of treasure hunters, struggling to excavate a dangerous and legendary treasure pit before a massive storm hits Sable Island, the “Graveyard of the North Atlantic.” Equipped with all the latest technology, the scientists believe they are prepared against all of nature’s fury, but nothing can prepare them for what they are about to unleash.

THE VAULT is kind of a contemporary Pandora’s Box story,” explained creator and writer, Sam Sarkar. “Though it appears on the surface to be a pretty straightforward story, it has most of its mythology buried deeply. It gets uncovered both literally and figuratively as the pit gets excavated.”

THE VAULT issue #1 autograph event will take place in Los Angeles at Golden Apple Comics on July 27th, 2011 from 7-9 P.M. at 7018 Melrose Avenue in Hollywood. For more information, please call 323-658-6047.
