Don't miss this chance to see Pittsburgh's own mega-talented Jim Rugg present on his latest work – and more! He will be appearing at The Carnegie Lecture Hall in Oakland, at 7:00pm on Thursday, January 23. And... it's FREE - to all those who have a Carnegie Library Card. So, anyone out there who doesn't yet have a card, now's a good time to get one. Should anyone reading this be unaware, the Carnegie Library system offers plenty of great comics, especially the Main Branch in Oakland, which has an amazing selection!
Yes, 'tis the season and so... Copacetic will be open seven days a week through December (except for Christmas Day, 'natch). Open regular hours on New Year's Eve, to give anyone who is interested one last chance to end the year on a good note.
Sunday - Friday: 11am - 5pm | Saturday: 11am - 7pm
New Year's Eve: 11am - 5:00pm
Comics community stalwart, and comics news-site pioneer, Tom Spurgeon passed away on Novermber 13, at age 50. Spurgeon founded The Comics Reporter in 2004 and piloted it for over a decade and a half, along the way creating arguably the most important online space for the dissemination of comics news and goings on in North America, enabling far flung and isolated comics readers to feel connected to the overall comics community. Prior to that he co-wrote the first serious biography of Stan Lee, and, from 1994 to 1999, was the editor of The Comics Journal. Recently, starting in 2015, he had taken on the additional duty of Executive Director of Comics Crossroads Columbus (CXC).
Among many generous acts, he donated his extensive personal collection of small press, self-published and hand made comics (aka "mini-comics") to help found The Dylan Williams Collection at the Billy Ireland Museum
He will be missed.
