COMING EVENTS :: Steve Saffel Signs Awesome Spider-Man Hardcover!
Oh yes! If you closely read my pulse-pounding report on our trip to the Baltimore Comicon, you'll have read that our buddy Steve Saffel had a copy of his forthcoming book, Spider-Man: The Icon, which he was carrying around and showing off like a proud new father. Well, soon you'll be able to congratulate Steve on his birth in person: he'll be appearing in our store on Saturday, November 3rd! I've seen this book with my own two baby-blues, and it's sweet--a big ole coffee table book exploring Spider-Man's iconic status in pop-culture, both here and abroad. That's cool and everything, but the real treat is Steve himself, who's about as personable and garrulous a dude as you could hope to meet. Just talking to him about anything is a treat, but on Spider-Man he's extra-knowledgeable. And even if you're not that big a Spidey fan, an autographed copy of this book will make a great holiday gift for whoever. Maybe even you-ever, if you play your cards right! We'll have more information as we get closer to the event, but for now feast your eyes on this interview with Steve on the publisher's website!
