from Rob, October 2nd, 2015 5:05 pm, Toys


hey’re not even supposed to be here today! Oh, wait – yes, they are!


For 20 years, director Kevin Smith has been entertaining us with his tales from the View Askewniverse, populated by the dysfunctional residents of Leonardo, New Jersey. Now, at your local comic shop, Diamond Select Toys has released four Select-scale action figures based on the film that started it all, Clerks!


Each 7-inch scale, fully poseable action figure is captured in the film’s famous black-and-white palette, and includes film-accurate accessories as well as a diorama base. Quick Stop employee Dante Hicks and perpetual loiterer Jay each come with half of the Quick Stop, while RST Video employee Randal Graves and spectator Silent Bob each come with half of RST Video! The cardboard backdrops fit into the sidewalk bases, and can be reversed to show the interior of each store! Collect all four to build the shopping center!


Sculpted by Patrick Piggott, each figure comes packaged in oversized Select-style display packaging, with spine artwork for easy shelf reference. Look for them at your local comic shop (if they don’t have them, they can order them) or order through your favorite online toy retailer!

Dante B&W Figure (Item #MAR152061, SRP: $24.99)

Jay B&W Figure (Item #MAR152062, SRP: $24.99)

Randal B&W Figure (Item #APR152299, SRP: $24.99)

Madballs™ Relaunch Tops Announcements and Events

New York, NY – Hot off of a debut year with one of the most diverse and fun-focused lineups in the comic book industry, Lion Forge Comics will be celebrating its star-studded 2016 releases with fans at New York Comic Con, here at the Jacob K. Javits Center next week.


Roar Comics, the young readers imprint of Lion Forge, will unveil artwork from its 2016 Madballs™ comic book series which updates the smash hit American Greetings franchise with modern interpretations from over one dozen superstar artists including Scarecrowoven, Gunsho, and Matt Crabe. The team — joined by Madballs designer Jim Groman — will be on-hand to sign a convention-exclusive oversized art comic and two limited edition screen prints before a launch party Friday night at Brooklyn’s Desert Island Comics.    


Actor Flex Alexander (Snakes on a Plane, One on One, Flex & Shanice) makes his first appearance at New York Comic Con at two signing events throughout the weekend, with free prints showcasing art from his new graphic novel, Joshua Run. The high-tech hacker thriller launches today as an eBook exclusive on all digital comics platforms.


Lion Forge also has a special event in store for wrestling fans — an encore performance of its standing-room-only retrospective on Andre the Giant at this summer’s Comic-Con International in San Diego. The WWE Hall of Famer’s daughter Robin Christensen-Roussimoff will field questions about her father’s legacy along with comics editor and journalist Heidi MacDonald, cartoonist Jarrett Williams, writer Mike Kingston, and Shannon Eric Denton, editor of next month’s graphic novel biography, Andre the Giant: Closer to Heaven.

“Our first year was even bigger and better than I imagined it would be,” said Lion Forge CEO David Steward II. “It’s important that we give back to our fans and build on the huge response to our first books like Knight Rider, Miami Vice, and Saved By the Bell with an even more robust slate in 2016. New York Comic Con is going to kick things off perfectly.”



Andre the Giant: The Man Behind the Legend — Thursday, October 8, 12:30 p.m.-1:30 p.m. — Room 1A24

The beloved pro wrestler’s daughter Robin Christensen Roussimoff joins Shannon Eric Denton, editor of Lion Forge’s authorized graphic novel biography, to discuss the real man we all know as the Eighth Wonder of the World. With special guests Jarrett Williams (SuperPro K.O.) and Michael Kingston (Headlocked). Join us for fond reminiscences of one of sports entertainment’s most legendary figures! Hosted by Heidi Macdonald (ComicsBeat)


Madballs Comics Launch Party — Friday, October 9, 7:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m. — Desert Island Comics, 540 Metropolitan Ave., Brooklyn
