Godzilla Fest - Lightning Octopus

Because I’m an amazing husband and father, I dragged the whole family out to Atomic Comics for Godzillafest last Saturday.

Yes, even the little boys. Thank Gojira they had cake for Godzilla’s birthday.

Godzilla brought the atomic to Atomic Comics (see what I did there?) by playing on the big screen all day.

But the real stars (awwww…) were members of the local comic & toys scene who showed up to celebrate the release of Fiction House Mafia‘s collaborative Robot ♥ Kaiju, and to show off their talents.

Artists, sculptors, and writers included Sam Laggren, Rusted Halo, KILL!, Bill Bailey, Eric Mengel, DannmannMadame M, Glenn Curren, Jeff Pina, and Thomas Healey.

(I’m sure I left someone out – help me out in the comments if I did?)

Can I just take a second to say how awesomely nice these people are? If you’re interested in indie comics or sculpting or anything at all, and are wonder if there’s a local Arizona scene that connects with each other, wonder no longer. These people are wicked friendly, talented, and excited about what they do.

Also, check out this hilarious promo of the event (made by an agent of The Order!)

As usual for this site, loads of photos to follow!

And I’ll put all of them up on the Lightning Octopus Facebook Page in a few.

Congrats to Glenn Curren for printing his web-comic!

Did I hear they sold out?

Finally scored a copy of Dr Oblivion’s Guide To Teenage Dating, by the affable Jeff Pina.

Worth picking up for the title itself, but also a fun comic.

If Thomas Healey’s around you can expect strong opinions about the sounds superheroes make when they use their powers.
