About ICE CREAM MAN #20 (Diamond Code SEP209164)—
One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish. Three fish, four fish, have some more fish. Five fish, six fish—are you sickish? Seven fish, eight fish…it’s getting late fish. Nine fish, ten fish, everyone you love will die and life is pointless so why even get out of bed you little worm you sick little insect with your sad flailing arms and creepy-crawly legs my god I’ve never seen such a pathetic specimen how sad how truly tragic…red fish, blue fish. 

Green Eggs & Ham homage LCSD 2021 edition of the standalone issue from ICE CREAM MAN that sold out multiple times and caused a stir for it’s creepy satirization of classic children’s stories.

About INVINCIBLE #1 (Diamond Code SEP209165)—
Strange things begin to happen to Mark Grayson as he develops superpowers. Luckily, his dad is around to show him the ropes, at least he WOULD be if he weren’t so busy saving the world all the time. Mark is forced to go out on his own, and try and figure out how all this superheroing business works. The results are a monumental disaster. Meanwhile, there’s trouble at school when Mark is dragged into a fight of epic proportions.

This LCSD 2020 edition of the debut issue of the long running INVINCIBLE series by Robert Kirkman and Cory Walker will introduce the action packed adventure to a whole new audience of readers since its original launch in 2003. Now fans can revisit the iconic superhero story of Mark Grayson in anticipation of the upcoming Amazon Prime Original TV show adaptation coming soon and featuring the voices of fan-favorite Steven Yeun (THE WALKING DEAD), Academy and Golden Globe award winning J.K. Simmons, and two time Golden Globe winning Sandra Oh of the popular TV series Killing Eve!

INVINCIBLE #1

About MONSTRESS: TALK STORIES #1 (Diamond Code SEP209163)—
Bridging the gap between the fifth and sixth arc (which resumes in January 2021), MONSTRESS returns with TALK-STORIES, a two-part limited series that invites you to eat dumplings beside the fire and listen as Kippa recounts a defining moment from her childhood.

Whether caught up on the latest issue of MONSTRESS or not, fans will enjoy this delightful spinoff and will want to get their hands on this highly collectable Gold Foil LCSD edition. 

MONSTRESS: TALK STORIES #1

About SPAWN #312 (Diamond Code SEP209162)—
This LCSD 2020 SPAWN #312 cover will be a variant of Todd McFarlane’s cover for the issue—only instead of listing out the names of those who’ve contributed to SPAWN over the years, this LCSD 2020 cover will wraparound and feature the names of retailers who are registered for the 2020 Local Comic Shop Day festivities! (For retailers who haven’t registered yet, there’s still time! Pop over to comicspro.com/lcsd2020 and register before 5pm PDT on Sunday, November 1 and you’ll be added to the cover!)

Ice Cream Man #20 Heads Back for a Third Printing

Ice Cream Man #20 by W. Maxwell Prince and Martín Morazzo is being rushed back to print again in order to keep up with the steadily growing reader demand. Only the Lorax would stand in the way of more copies being printed—and the third printing cover art will pit this tree-loving Seuss character against the reprint-loving Ice Cream Man.

Ice Cream Man is a genre-defying comic book series featuring disparate ‘one-shot’ tales of sorrow, wonder, and redemption. Each installment features its own cast of strange characters, dealing with their own special sundae of suffering. And on the periphery of all of them, like the twinkly music of his colorful truck, is the Ice Cream Man-a weaver of stories, a purveyor of sweet treats. Friend. Foe. God. Demon. The man who, with a snap of his fingers—lickety split!—can change the course of your life forever.

Ice Cream Man #20, third printing (Diamond Code JUL209197) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, September 30.

This second printing will feature a cheeky homage to the iconic Dr. Seuss book Oh, the Places You’ll Go!

Ice Cream Man Presents: Quarantine Comix Mini-Comics in September

In the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, Ice Cream Man creators W. Maxwell Prince and Martín Morazzo launched an online-only series of mini-comics set in the ICM universe. The collection of these stories, Ice Cream Man Presents: Quarantine Comix #1, will be available in print for the first time from Image Comics this September.  

These strange little ditties were originally meant to tide folks over while the industry was on pause—and also raise money for struggling comic shops; 50 percent of all digital proceeds were donated to Comicbook United Fund/BINC Foundation.

Now, collected into print format, this is an extra-length collection of all six issues of these Quarantine Comix, featuring brand-new cover art and bonus stories by guest creators. And, as before, 50 percent of creator profits will go to Comicbook United Fund/BINC Foundation to help stores get back on their feet—because comic shops are sweet.

Ice Cream Man Presents: Quarantine Comix #1 will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, September 9. 

Ice Cream Man Presents: Quarantine Comix #1 remains available to purchase in digital format on the Quarantine Comix website.
