Wizard World Chicago


The comic world descends upon the Windy City next week and Arcana is set to take Artist Alley by storm! A scaled down Arcana will be present in Artist Alley (table #3206). Mark Poulton and Stephen Sistilli from Koni Waves will be on hand and bringing the hottest exclusives with them. First up is the “Windy City Showdown” variant to Koni Waves/Demonslayer. This gorgeous cover is drawn by Demonslayer creator Marat Mychaels and digitally painted by Matthew Swift. The cover is extremely limited with only 50 copies printed. Make sure you get yours quick! Also available will be a new Koni Waves print entitled “Welcome To Hukos.” This print was done up to look like one of the placemats at Koni’s favorite watering hole, Huko’s Volcano Room. The placemat features different drinks that tell a story of the upcoming Koni Waves: Ghouls Gone Wild! graphic novel.


Clockwork Girl Now On Sale

Arcana’s most anticipated series of the year is finally here! Clockwork Girl #0 hit comic shops yesterday. In this 25 cent issue, the Tinkerer is a mad scientist convinced that mechanical technology is a stable and precise science and is more important than all of the other sciences. Metal twists and bends, gears, axles and ratchets work in unison giving life to a conscious machine… the Astonishing Clockwork Girl.

Koni Waves Joins The NBA

Later this year, Hawaii’s hottest detective will conquer the heavy metal world when she teams up with Immortal Records’ ADEMA. However, before then Koni is going to lace up her sneakers and team-up with the NBA. This November, the Philadelphia 76ers are having Comic Book and Gaming Night and joining them to celebrate will be Koni creators Mark Poulton, Stephen Sistilli, and Dexter Weeks. Free to all fans in attendance will be a print featuring Koni Waves with the Sixers two brightest stars, Andre Iguodala and Kyle Korver!

Yin Yang Backs Up American Wasteland

If you ever thought American Wasteland’s vampire slaying trucker, Cletus McCoy, could use some back-up, have no fear. Issue #2 features a back-up story from the upcoming Arcana graphic novel, Yin Yang. Yin Yang tells the tale of a twin brother/sister bounty hunter team who go after mutants with powers that keep them out of reach to normal law enforcement groups.
