Howdy to all you adoring Grand Geeks and Gatherers out there! It is quite cold and foggy out here in the realm of Southern California, and as a result I’m enjoying some hot cocoa while being all bundled up nice and warm. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, so I’m sure everyone is excited for that. Well, maybe not EVERYONE. So for those that aren’t so into the holiday, here are some selections to get you through the festivities!

Synopsis: “The first ever Grimm Fairy Tales character spotlight features the return of Peyton Parks aka the Black Knight in a stand-alone story. She battles the Mysterious Lord of the Flies in fight that takes her far from home and into the madness of Wonderland.”
It seems an oldie but a goodie is back in the form of Peyton Parks, whom we all know of as the Black Knight.

And there we have it for the week, folks! Fantasy tales of runaway orcs combined with female heroes dragged into Wonderland. These stories and more are available at the mere click of a button on your keyboards or at the touch of a button on your tablets and/or phones. But being the supporters of local business that I trust you are, I know you’ll head down to your comic shop this Wednesday and pick up the hard copy issues themselves. Read them and share with your friends. Start a conversation and be sure to leave a comment or two. But most importantly, remember…GGG!
