DC Rebirth Midnight Release Extravaganza at Cosmic Monkey! Tuesday, May 24 at 11:30 PM - 12:30 AM

  • Cosmic Monkey Comics

DC Comics is relaunching their entire universe and it all starts with the DC Rebirth one shot by Geoff Johns & Gary Frank. Cosmic Monkey Comics is going to have a midnight release event to kick it off and let everyone get a first look at the future of the DC Comics.

All other DC books and comics will be 20% off for that night only!

It all begins here. Do not skip to the last page. Do not let a friend or message board ruin this comic for you. The future (and past) of the DC Universe starts here. Don't say we didn't warn you!
THEY SAID IT: "Rebirth is about focusing in on the core of the character and their respective universe," says writer and DC Entertainment Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns. "It brings back what has been lost, the legacy of the characters, the love and the hope of the DCU!"

Vinny Navarrete (Booger Beard) signing June 28th 12-2PM

  • Cosmic Monkey Comics

Cosmic Monkey Comics is excited to have Vicente "Vinny" Navarrete signing copies of his new book Booger Beard from Oni Press Saturday June 20th Noon-2pm.

An imaginative tale of repulsive proportions! All Mijo wants is a delicious snack to settle his rumbling panza. However, an epic sneeze forces a snot rocket like you've never seen out of his nose and onto his face. His Ma-Mee wants him to clean it off before he eats, but how can Mijo wipe off such a masterpiece? He wants to keep his beard, no matter how gross. He just needs to convince Ma-Mee as well, and show her just how handy his booger beard can be!

*UPDATE* We ended up not getting our advanced copies of Booger Beard in time. We're going to reschedule the signing for Sunday June 28th 12-2pm.
