Greetings fans of comics and cookies! We’re thrilled to announce that Einhorn’s Epic Cookies is teaming up with awesome comic book store East Side Mags to throw the first ever COOKIE PARTY!!! 
Writer Brian Smith (STUFF OF LEGEND, SPONGEBOB), Artist Jacob Chabot (MIGHTY SKULLBOY ARMY, HELLO KITTY), Colorist/Letterer Steve Wands (BATMAN, ATTACK ON TITAN), and Co-Creators Adam Staffaroni and Heather Einhorn will be on hand to sketch sweet unicorns and sign books or cookies (your choice)! Free Hot Chocolate will also be provided by Simit House Bakery & Co.

So c’mon out, brave the cold and head to East Side Mags on SATURDAY, FEBRURARY 21st @12pm for all the fun! 
ABOUT EINHORN’S EPIC COOKIES 

When we started making cookies, we didn't want them to be just awesome...We wanted them to be super-mega-awesome! That’s why each of our cosmic cookie combos comes with a surprise ROYAL EINHORN FORCE comic book. Who are the R.E.F. you might ask? Well, their names are HOUSTON, CADIZ, ROMSEY, & BROXBURN, and they’re the roughest, toughest, most stylin’ squad of unicorn warriors in the galaxy. Look for more Royal Einhorn Force adventures with every cookie and on our website, where we’ll have new installments every single week! Planet-hopping unicorn warriors and radically delicious cookies? A crazy mash-up of ideas, maybe…but hey, we’re Einhorns.

The amazing Ron Marz will be coming to East Side Mags to meet his fans and sign copies of his work.

Ron has been a part of the comic book industry since 1991 and has given us some of the most exciting and suspenseful story lines ever seen.

Besides writing 50+ issues of Silver Surfer for Marvel Comics throughout the 1990s, Ron also wrote 80+ issues of Green Lantern for DC Comics! Ron was responsible for the Emerald Twilight story line where Hal Jordan basically goes mad with grief, becomes a mass murderer and destroys the Green Lantern Corps - leading into Kyle Rayner becoming a Green Lantern and taking over the sector 2814!

Other writing credits for Ron include (but are not limited to):

DC vs Marvel series

Batman/Aliens (DC Comics)

various Star Wars Comics (Dino Entertainment, Dark Horse)

Witchblade (Top Cow)

Cyberforce (Top Cow)

Ion (DC Comics)

Skylanders (IDW)

Thor #460-471 (Marvel Comics)

What If?... (Marvel Comics)

X-O Manowar (Valiant Comics)

Artifacts (Top Cow)

You can see the entire list of Ron's body of work on his website here.

We are extremely excited to host Ron who is a living legend in the comics industry and hope everyone can make it out to meet him! We'll have copies of his work on hand if you want to get something signed or you can just pick his brain about what the industry was like in the 1990s vs today and real insight into what it's like working on some MAJOR books like Silver Surfer, Green Lantern, Witchblade, Skylanders and more!

East Side Mags is PROUD to present the greatest space movie since Star Wars! The Marvel masterpiece that put a lesser known comic book property on the map in a BIG way and brought us, not just a Han Solo-like raccoon and a giant, wooden Chewbacca! It's not a debate who shot first in this one!

For those who have not yet seen this "Marvel"-ous movie, it follows the exploits of Peter Quill aka Star-Lord as he acquires a strange space artifact, finding an uneasy alliance with a rag-tag team of bounty hunters and criminals as they pursue a buyer for the strange rock while keeping it away from THANOS - the universe's most infamous entity. Fun, space fights and hilarity are all in store!!!

As usual - we are looking for attendees to bring healthy food donations for Toni's Kitchen in Montclair, NJ. Suggestions for food donations can be found at www.toniskitchen.org.

Equipment to show the movie is generously donated by Gateway AV in Summit, NJ (www.gatewayav.com).

Come celebrate the release of Star Wars #1 with East Side Mags on 1/14! We'll have a bunch of regular covers available and some really great variants! 

We also have a bunch of free Star Wars swag for everyone too!

We're also gonna watch the original Star Wars trilogy, discuss who shot first and maybe even see if some of our lawyer customers can build a case for suing the rebels due to the contractual labor required to construct the 2nd Death Star in Episode VI!

Maybe...MAYBE...we'll even watch some of the prequels. If you guys persist enough...but maybe we'll just throw the originals on loop!

DO NOT MISS THIS! 

It's not everyday we get to celebrate the release of STAR WARS #1!
