Family Friendly Games: Perfect for the Holidays

Look, everybody knows mom liked you best. But it's still not polite to point it out over the Thanksgiving turkey. And yes, your cousin took your car that time and swore he only drove to work and church, but when you got it back, you found those muddy hoof-prints and a receipt for that Mexican pharmacy. But hey, don't bring it up while trimming the tree, okay? This could be memaw's last Christmas, you know.

But what's a better way to handle with all that simmering conflict? By obliterating your family in a game of Munchkin, of course!

We've got a selection of games that are a breeze to learn and a blast for all ages. Munchkin, Abandon Ship, Crazy Creatures of Dr. Doom: some of these games are so fun, even happy families would want to play them! (Maybe, we wouldn't really know.)

So this holiday season, don't just tell your family mom liked you best, remind them why--because you absolutely dominate in Ticket to Ride!

Artist signing!

Haven is thrilled to announce two signings by Andy Price, artist for IDW's new My Little Pony series!

Andy Price is a Huntsville native and graduate of the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art. Along with writer Katie Cook, he was recently tapped to draw the new My Little Pony comic, and we couldn't be more excited. So excited that we're having not one, but two signings.

The first will be on November 28th, 4:00 to 7:00 p.m., the day My Little Pony #1 comes out! The second, on December 15th, 12:00 to 6:00 p.m., will feature a costume contest and children's activities!

Come on out, meet the artist, and share the magic with Haven Comics!

And now a few words about Spider-Man

Rob Williams and Brad Walker do a fantastic job with Avenging Spider-Man Annual #1. Spider-Man teams up with his old pal Ben Grimm to stop a pair of rage-manipulating Jersey Shore rejects. It's the sort of fun, bash-em-up adventure that makes Avenging Spider-Man a good palette cleanser after I've read one too many dark books like Walking Dead, Animal Man, American Vampire, etc., etc.

What really knocks this issue out of the park, though, is the short essay Williams wrote on the last page. It sums up exactly why Spider-Man is my favorite hero, why through years of trends and hot-new-things in comics, I always go back to good ol' Peter Parker. Read it and enjoy.

NaNoWriMo Write-In at Haven


What is NaNoWriMo?  In short, it is when hundreds of thousands of people take up the challenge to write 50k words through the month of November.  It is a mad dash of creativity, featuring butts in chairs and fingers on keyboards.  Or fingers to pencils and pens if you're old school.

Haven Comics is in on the action.  We will be hosting 2 write-ins, where you are welcome to come to the store and write to your heart's content and boost your word count.  The first write in will be Friday, November 9th from 1pm-3pm.  That's two hours of writing mayhem!  The second write in will be Friday, November 23rd from 1pm-3pm.

Join us and make some words!  Cookies and soda will be supplied for the necessary sugar/caffeine rush to get your creative engine running. 

If you want more information or are looking for more write-ins, check out the NaNoWriMo forums for Northern Alabama!
