    Golden Apple Hosts an IGN Gears of War Party Featuring Dom (Carlos Ferro) and the Nerdcore Girls

    What did you do for Halloween? If you came out to Golden Apple you got to meet two of the sexy 2009 Nerdcore Models, Carlos Ferro (who voices Dom in GOW), and plenty of other awesomely costumed peoples.

    The event kicked off at 7pm and went well past closing time. People dressed up (everyone who came, you looked amazing), played Gears of War drank lots of booze, and partied til the lights went out. There was a costume contest and some sweet prizes were handed out.

    IGN, Dom, and Nerdcore all brought great handouts and we still have a few of them as well if you wanted to head down to our store and snag a few.

    We still have the 5-pack of toys that we featured for the signing, they include all four of the main characters and a Locust torque bow-er. Click on this link if you wanna see all the pics from the night and believe me they are some sexy pictures.

    Also if you missed seeing the Nerdcore girls here don't fret, they will be back on November 20th for their calendar release and they will be in greater numbers (watch out single guys).

    Milo Ventimiglia and Tim Sale Signing a HUGE success!!!

    The line for the New REST comic started at around noon, and was a couple blocks long by the time Milo and Tim showed up. Milo showed up and walked the line greeting his fans. Then continued to sign for a looong time.

    We thank everyone who showed up to the event and we hope you come out for our next few events (James Jean Fables covers event, Nerdcore 2009 Calendar Release party, The Michael Turner Tribute, and The Umbrella Academy Book with Gerard Way)

    Drink n' Draw (Come get ridiculous with not so sober artists)

    This Friday the 29th of August, from 7:30 until 10 we will be having a DRINK N' DRAW event here at Golden Apple. If you are confused as to what exactly a drink and draw event is, here's a quick explanation.... Artists (regular and the comic book variety) come here and do sketches of whatever you want them to, whilst being extremely (or maybe not so) drunk.

    There will be a lot of artists here doing sketches and it isn't quite like a normal comic book signing in any respect. Usually you would have to buy a certain comic or bring in a specific item for them to sketch on. This one is totally up to you.

    So come on in, stop on by, and join us for this 200 proof event. We hope to see you here.

    If you have any questions or comments post them below and I'm sure we'd be happy to respond to them....

    The Mark Millar & Tony Harris War Heroes signing a GREAT SUCCESS!!!

    The Mark Millar & Tony Harris War Heroes signing was a great success. Thanks go out to all of the great customers and fans of the geniuses (Mark Millar, Tony Harris) that were signing.

    If you didn't get to make it to the event you can check out pictures at our flickr page. Lots of people came out that night and Mark and Tony signed until the wee hours of the night (way past our bedtime). Old war movies were being projected onto the back of our store and the intense Crazy for Cult show was rocking next door.

    Even the Nerdcore crew was down supporting the cause bringing down Karlie Montana in full War Hero gear (she looked awesome, pictures on the flickr). Tons of free schwag was given away, and if you were lucky enough to get here early you could have snagged a free gift bag.

    Anyways, if you didn't get your War Heroes comic or you variant you can still stop in, we do have a few of each left. And thanks again for all your support.
