This June New England will become the DEADLANDS, and it’s all the fault of the New England Comic Retailer Association (NECRA)!
To celebrate the release of the first in a star-studded series of Weird Western one shots from Image Comics, Visionary Comics, Strider-Nolan Media and Pinnacle Entertainment, NECRA is bringing the creators of DEADLANDS: THE DEVIL'S SIX GUN, writer David Gallaher and artist Steve Ellis, to a limited exclusive tour on June 25th and 26th!
The tour will encompass three of the top comic shops in the New England area. The team will appear at Friendly Neighborhood Comics and Larry’s Comics on the 25th and wrap up at Jetpack Comics on the 26th. Both Weird Western maestros extraordinaire, Gallaher and Ellis, will be on hand for autographs and sketches, and each store will be stocked with the absolutely haunting exclusive NECRA tour cover by Ellis, which was printed just for the tour with a limited print run of 1,000 copies.
Gallaher was excited to do the NECRA tour: "The comic shop experience is really rather unique. I see this tour as an opportunity to really build a stronger relationship with retail stores and the customers they serve. It's a good step towards building a stronger comics community as a whole."
With media sites such as IGN hailing this as an "All-Star Western" and Newsarama promising Devil's Six Gun "will knock you for a loop," it seems the entire country is getting on board.
“We’re very excited about the NECRA tour,” chimed in C. Edward Sellner, Creative Director for Visionary and the writer and colorist for the super secret backup feature drawn by Oscar Capristo. “Visionary staff will also be doing a tour and release party for each of the four one-shots along the east coast. Stores are lining up to participate and support the books.”
Other events around the country are being planned for the summer, and the DEADLANDS crew will be invading GenCon and Baltimore Comic-Con. Each stop will feature various creators involved as well as Visionary staff. More details on all these events will be coming soon. Please check the sites of the main partners to get the latest!
