BOOM! Studios Announces Exclusive Variant Covers for Local Comic Shop Day 2021

BOOM! Studios has unveiled the three exclusive cardstock variant covers that will be available on Local Comic Shop Day 2021, taking place on Wednesday, November 24th at participating comics retailers.

These three instantly collectible covers feature black and white cardstock versions of these highly-anticipated variant covers from superstar artists:

  • House of Slaughter #1 2nd Printing by Jae Lee & June Chung
  • Magic: Master of Metal #1 by Adam Gorham
  • Regarding the Matter of Oswald’s Body #1 by Ryan Sook

Local Comic Shop Day is an annual event that began in 2014, conceived and implemented by ComicsPRO, the only trade organization dedicated to the progress of direct market comic book retailers, to call attention to locally owned independent comic book specialty stores, celebrating their unique and vital role as the primary fire-starters of pop culture. Pop Culture begins in your Local Comic Shop!

Your First Look at Christopher Cantwell and Luca Casalanguida’s Regarding the Matter of Oswald’s Body #1

BOOM! Studios has revealed a first look at Regarding the Matter of Oswald’s Body #1, the premiere issue in the new five-issue comic book series that presents an off-kilter crime thriller set in the shadows of history’s greatest conspiracy, from Eisner Award-nominated writer, producer, and director Christopher Cantwell, artist Luca Casalanguida, colorist Giada Marchisio, and letterer AndWorld Design, available on November 10, 2021.

The Kennedy assassination is a rat’s nest of conspiracy theories: mafia involvement, the second gunman, government cover-up… but the most important chapter of this sordid tale may just be the theory that the body buried at Oswald’s Rose Hill gravesite is not actually Lee Harvey himself. 

Meet the ragtag group of “useful idiots” – a wannabe cowboy from Wisconsin, a Buddy Holly-idolizing (former) car thief, a world-weary Civil Rights activist ready for revolution, and a failed G-Man who still acts the part – who are unwittingly brought together to clean up the crime of the century, and specifically deal with the matter of Oswald’s body.

Regarding the Matter of Oswald’s Body #1 features main cover art by series artist Casalanguida, and variant cover art by acclaimed illustrators Ryan Sook and Jacob Phillips.

Heritage Auctions Teams with Comic Artists to Benefit the Ed Asner Memorial Fund

Heritage Auctions and numerous comic artists are teaming up to raise money of the Ed Asner Memorial Fund. Bill Sienkiewicz is one of those creators who after getting involved, helped convince other artists to do the same.

Beloved for generations for roles that included gruff-but-lovable Lou Grant on The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Santa Claus in Elf and Carl Fredericksen in Pixar’s Up, Ed Asner died Aug. 29, leaving a legacy as a giant among Hollywood stars and a champion for numerous special needs communities. Matthew Asner, the center’s president and CEO, and his wife, Navah Paskowitz-Asner, continue their tireless work of creating programs and services for those with special needs. Among the most important is raising funds to support the center, through events like Heritage Auctions’ Inktoberfest for the Ed Asner Family Center Charity Auction. Bidding for the event – Heritage’s third on behalf of The Ed Asner Family Center – opens Sept. 30 on HA.com; the event closes Oct. 28.

The event is one of the center’s primary annual fundraisers, thanks to generous contributions from some of the comic-book industry’s best and best-known artists.

The result is an extraordinary event, with roughly 140 lots of art donated by the artists who created them; the proceeds will go to support the programs and services offered at The Ed Asner Family Center. The list of artists who have contributed to the event reads like a Who’s Who of comic art, among them Sienkiewicz, Kevin Nowlan, Don Maitz, Jim Lee, Ibrahim Moustafa, Philip Tan, and Arthur Adams, to name but a few.

Without Ed’s involvement, this year’s event, of course, holds special significance to Matt and all involved with the Ed Asner Family Center.

Proceeds from the auction will go directly to the Ed Asner Memorial Fund for programs and services at The Ed Asner Family Center, “a one-stop shop for neurodivergent individuals and their families seeking wholeness in all attitudes of life.” The center “gives children and adults of all levels of ability a chance at dignity, confidence, and self-respect” through an assortment of arts and career advancement programs that are offered after school and on weekends, as well as counseling and mindfulness classes.
