Penultimate Quest

WRITER: Lars Brown 
ILLUSTRATORS: 
Lars Brown, Bex Glendining

PAGE COUNT: 340
PUB DATE: October 6, 2020
PUBLISHER: Iron Circus Comics

Far across the Western Ocean on a mist-shrouded island guarded by giant sea monsters, heroes come to explore the mysterious dungeons that lie below the surface. None have yet to reach the bottom and return to tell the tale. Each party gathers daily for a new round of potion-making, sword-sharpening, armor-buying, and dungeon-crawling, and after hours of leveling up in dangerous battles with monstrous creatures from the depths, they rest and try again the next day when everything repeats. That is, until one adventurer stops to ask why. Is it endlessly exciting, or simply endless?

In a witty, genre-defying tale of magic, mystery, and philosophy, brave warriors must learn the difference between diversion and escape as they try to break the cycle of a penultimate quest in which the final fantasy never arrives.

Scott Pilgrim Vol. 6: Scott Pilgrim’s Finest Hour

By Bryan Lee O’Malley

*Every copy purchased at the show comes with your choice of a Scott Pilgrim or Ramona Flowers wristband (also available for purchase at booth while supplies last).*

It’s finally here! Six years and almost one-thousand pages have all led to this epic finale! With six of Ramona’s seven evil exes dispatched, it should be time for Scott Pilgrim to face Gideon Graves, the biggest and baddest of her former beaus. But didn’t Ramona take off at the end of Book 5? Shouldn’t that let Scott off the hook? Maybe it should, maybe it shouldn’t, but one thing is for certain — all of this has been building to Scott Pilgrim’s Finest Hour!

“Scott Pilgrim is the best book ever. It is the chronicle of our time. With Kung Fu, so, Yeah: perfect.” -Joss Whedon

The Sixth Gun #1 & #2

SIXTH GUN #1 - COVERBy Cullen Bunn & Brian Hurtt

*Every pair of comics purchased at the show comes with a limited edition signing card (while supplies last)*

During the darkest days of the Civil War, wicked cutthroats came into possession of six pistols of otherworldly power. In time, the Sixth Gun—the most dangerous of the weaponsSIXTH GUN #2 - COVER—vanished. When the gun surfaces in the hands of an innocent girl, dark forces reawaken. Vile men thought long dead set their sights on retrieving the gun and killing the girl. Only Drake Sinclair, a gunfighter with a shadowy past, stands in their way.

“More mystery and wonder and adventure in the first six pages than some comics have in their whole lives. Say hello to your new favorite comic.” -Matt Fraction

Super Pro K.O.! Vol. 1

By Jarrett Williams

*Come to a Jarrett Williams signing on Saturday 7/24 and compete for the SPKO World Champion Belt of Comic-Con 2010*

Joe Somiano is late to his first match in Super Pro K.O.!, and has no clue what awaits him in the rowdy ring! A seasoned sumo wrestler, a jolly luchador, a flamboyant tag team, suspicious executives, and a drunken Heavyweight Champion all stand between him and the super-stardom that is his destiny. If the huge egos, clothesline take-downs, and broken chairs across the head don’t squash Joe’s dreams, he may just come out on top. But if he’s going to take home the champion’s belt, he’ll need to bring his best moves against the likes of S.P.K.O.! stars Tomahawk Slamson, Yoko No-No, Mr. Awesomeness 2, and many more in this grand slamma jamma event of a graphic novel!

“Jarrett Williams is a towering inferno of comics. Get in on the ground floor… so you can watch him burn down and then explode! And you’ll die horribly in the process!” -Bryan Lee O’Malley
