Comicverse #5 Release and Signing in W-G

Posted by Eric On March - 8 - 2017

Join Bianca Alu-Marr and Steve Peters as they launch the newest issue of their sci-fi humor comic, The Comicverse. Steve will be drawing free sketches like he’s done at Brave New Worlds for the past six years on Free Comic Book Day. There will also be blank sketch covers available,and Steve will have much more time to add a lot of detail to his drawings than on FCBD, so this is the best time to get a sketch!
