COMICS

– “The Hard Goodbye”, Frank Miller’s first Sin City story, begins its serialization in Dark Horse Presents #51.

X-Force #1 by Rob Liefeld & Fabian Nicieza sells 4 million copies, making it one of biggest-selling comics of all time.

Bone by Jeff Smith begins.

X-Men #1 by Chris Claremont & Jim Lee sells 8.1 million copies, making it the biggest-selling single issue from an American publisher, a record it still holds.

Sandman #19 by Neil Gaiman & Charles Vess becomes the first comic to win a World Fantasy Award; it remains the only comic to do so, as the rules for the award were changed soon after to disallow a comic from winning again.

Beati Paoli/Aeon Grey 7″ split

On Friday, June 19th, the release party for the mildly anticipated 7″ split between TNM’s Beati Paoi and Central Standard Record’s Aeon Grey occurred. It was a good time and all parties whom played (Skylar Johnson, Gaiden Gadema, Waxeater) were awesome.  Especially Waxeater. Those guys played an intense set.

But, again, the reason for the show was the art01-CharmPointcelebration/release of the split.

If you missed it , you missed a good time. However, you did not miss your opportunity to pick it up.  You can purchase it online  here (on right side of the page),  as well as from ZZZ records in Des Moines, with more locations to come.

In addition to the split, a digital album entitled Quid Pro Quo is included to download. 14 tracks in all, it contains  both new originals and remixes by Beati and Aeon.   Check out a few tracks from the QPQ album  below…as well as Beati Paoli covering “Lose My Breath” by My Bloody Valentine.

“Disturbance” – Beati Paoli
