Harassment Guidelines

(Just to salve any potential worries: Nothing happened to spur this – we just want to assure new Guests and Team Members that we’ll do our best to make sure nothing bad DOES happen! We like the idea of potential new Guests online and actual new Guests entering the store seeing “EC is a safe space” and knowing we’ve got their back! 🙂)

Here at EC, it is our goal to create an environment where everyone is treated with dignity, courtesy, and respect – and we know that people who regularly attend our events, shop at our store, or know any member of our “EC Family” can be confident that if they tell us someone is behaving poorly, we will ask that ill-mannered person to leave. But what of those people who are at EC for their first time? EC wants to be a safe space for all of our Guests, so we’re putting this in writing:

Emerald City will not tolerate any kind of harassment of our Guests. This includes unwanted, unwelcome, or uninvited physical contact or attention, offensive verbal comments, inappropriate jokes or propositions, stalking, harassing photography or recording, or any other behavior which makes a person feel humiliated, intimidated, or offended in regards to – but not limited to – their race, national origin, age, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, disability, appearance, body type, or simply who they are.

People who violate these guidelines will be given an official First Warning by either a member of our Team or any member of our community. This warning may be phrased in an official sounding capacity such as “that is a violation of EC’s Harassment Guidelines” or it may be phrased in a more casual manner such as – but not limited to – “that makes me uncomfortable” or “that is inappropriate” and even “hey not cool, man.” These too are considered an official First Warning. There will be no Second Warning. If the behavior does not change, the offending party will simply be told they need to leave and be politely escorted out.

We realize that even the best of humans are flawed, imperfect beings; and with so many of our Guests coming from different parts of the world and walks of life, that some cultural differences may occur. And different people might have conflicting definitions of what “harassment” is. So everyone here is afforded the chance to correct a social faux pas – but they won’t get two. Those who can’t muster up the decency to respect each other, our community, EC, and also themselves just aren’t welcome – officially.

And because EC is your community as well as ours, we deputize each and every one of you to take part in the enforcement of these guidelines. Which means that your First Warning is just as official as ours is. In the event of an uncomfortable or awkward situation, we still ask that all parties treat everyone at EC with the kindness and respect they are due as fellow human beings.

These guidelines apply to all Guests, including featured Special Guests and also the EC Team – even the music we play. Simply, if it’s gotta go, then it’s gotta go. These Harassment Guidelines are in effect at EC always and forever. We will be adding a link to this page on our events so that these guidelines are clear to one and all.

EC has grown over the years as an entity and as people, and we will continue to evolve for the betterment of ourselves, our community, and the greater comics industry. So let’s join forces: fellow comic fans, fellow retailers and industry leaders, for a higher community standard and a greater, more welcoming comics industry for all.

A big thanks to all of you for helping us build and improve this amazing EC community!

ABOMINATION: HEIR OF FRANKENSTEIN

It’s been twenty years since Victor Frankenstein died on a ship in the arctic, but his vengeful creature lives on, as does Robert Walton, the sea captain who vowed to kill the fiend before mercy stayed his hand. It’s now 1819, and a sinister darkness descends upon the city of Paris. A mysterious benefactor of gigantic stature has emerged in the scientific community, never showing his face, claiming to possess the late Frankenstein’s research. He sponsors a grand competition, offering an even grander prize: unlocking the mystery of mortality!

Renowned scientists from around the world come to take part: some drawn to solve this eternal riddle, others coerced against their will. But a certain captain comes as well, one deeply suspicious of the secretive patron, hoping to finally fulfill his vow.

Abomination: The Heir of Frankenstein is a competitive game of strategic monster building for 2-4 players, inspired by Mary Shelley’s classic novel of gothic horror. In the game, the creature demands your help to accomplish what his own creator would not: to bring to life an abomination like itself, a companion to end its miserable solitude. Through worker placement and careful management of decomposing resources, you’ll gather materials from the cemeteries and morgues around the city, conduct valuable research at the Academy of Science, hire less-than-reputable associates, and toil away in your lab — all in an effort to assemble a new form of life and infuse it with a “spark of being”. Do well, and the creature may reward you during one of its surprise visits; do poorly, and you may come to regret not putting forth more effort. Narrative elements come into play throughout the game, guided by your decisions, leading to potentially unsavory outcomes.

The game ends when you succeed in bringing your creation to life or when the Captain kills the creature, whichever happens first. Then the player with the most points fulfills Frankenstein’s dark legacy, becoming his heir, for good or ill…

FUNKOVERSE

Face off in the ultimate Pop! battle

In the Funkoverse Strategy Game, you combine your favorite characters and go head-to-head in four exciting game scenarios. Use your characters’ unique abilities to gain points and achieve victory!

Each turn, you select one of your characters and perform two actions. Each character has access to basic actions like moving and challenges as well as several unique abilities that may be performed only by spending ability tokens. Funkoverse uses an innovative “cooldown” system — the more powerful the ability, the longer it will take for the ability token to become available again — so players have to spend their ability tokens wisely. Each character in Funkoverse is unique, so players are encouraged to try out different combinations of characters and items in order to discover their favorite synergies and powerful strategies for all four game scenarios.

As of launch, the Funkoverse Strategy Game consists of four-character sets and two-character sets. Every four-character and two-character set is playable as a standalone game and comes with exclusive Funko Pop! Figures that aren’t available anywhere else, a double-sided board, tokens, cards, an item, and dice. Sets may be combined with one another, allowing players the freedom to play how they like!

 

 


8BIT BOX: DOUBLE RUMBLE

8Bit Box: Double Rumble, an expansion for the 8Bit Box simulation kit, is reminiscent of fighting arcade games of old. Players need to confront the bad guys facing them, either in a solitaire game or playing co-operatively with one other player, in order to defeat the boss at the final stage of the game.

JOKER HARLEY CRIMINAL SANITY #1
DC COMICS
(W) Kami Garcia (A) Mico Suayan, Mike Mayhew (CA) Francesco Mattina
In Gotham City, where heinous acts of violence are a daily occurrence, the GCPD relies on Harley Quinn, a young forensic psychiatrist and profiler, to consult on their toughest cases. But Harley is haunted by one unsolved case-the night she discovered her roommate’s body marked with the signature of a notorious serial killer known as The Joker.
Five years later, the case remains unsolved and a new series of horrific murders occur throughout the city. As the murders escalate, Harley’s obsession with finding the depraved psychopath responsible leads her down a dangerous path. When the past and the present finally collide, Harley has to decide how far she is willing to go-and how many lines she is willing to cross-to solve these cases once and for all.
Written by #1 New York Times and international bestselling author Kami Garcia (co-author of Beautiful Creatures, author of Unbreakable and X-Files: Agents of Chaos) with art by Mico Suayan (Bloodshot: Reborn) and Mike Mayhew (The Star Wars), JOKER/HARLEY: CRIMINAL SANITY introduces readers to a Joker and Harley Quinn unlike any they’ve seen before, utilizing forensic psychiatry, behavior analysis (profiling) and psychological profiles to create a true-to-life take on these iconic characters that is more terrifying than any psychotic fantasy.

Offer valid from November 6th through the 12th!

UNDISCOVERED COUNTRY #1
Image Comics
Written by Charles Soule & Scott Snyder
Illustrated by Giuseppe Camuncoli & Daniele Orlandini

$3.99 – only $2.99 during its first week on sale!

SERIES PREMIERE!

This November, New York Times bestselling writers SCOTT SNYDER (WYTCHES, A.D.: AFTER DEATH) and CHARLES SOULE (CURSE WORDS, the forthcoming novel Anyone) will team up with artists GIUSEPPE CAMUNCOLI (The Amazing Spider-Man, Darth Vader, Hellblazer) and DANIELE ORLANDINI (Darth Vader) and 2019 Eisner Award-winning colorist MATT WILSON (THE WICKED AND THE DIVINE, PAPER GIRLS) to embark on an epic adventure in the brand-new ongoing series, UNDISCOVERED COUNTRY!

In this special oversized first issue, readers will journey into the near future, and an unknown nation that was once the United States of America-a land that’s become shrouded in mystery after walling itself off from the rest of the world without explanation over thirty years ago. When a team seeking a cure for a global pandemic breaches U.S. borders, they quickly find themselves in a struggle to survive this strange and deadly lost continent!

 

Why It’s Cool: “This is one strange slice of sci-fi Americana. The premise is pretty simple: what if the United States walled itself off from the rest of the world for 30 years and only now is allowing a small team back into the country? In this first issue we only get a taste of the craziness to come, but even just these 40 pages are overflowing with a ton of ideas; sci-fi plagues, giant desert fish, heavy metal bison, and something or someone called the Destiny Man. One thing’s for sure, things are going to get way weirder before they get any better!“
-Edward Uvanni, Comics Omnivore Director

“Justin’s Jabber” – Back Issue Comics! 10/4/19

How come there are always female versions of popular male superheroes, but there are never male versions of popular female superheroes?

I’m afraid I’m gonna have to call shenanigans here.

In fact, many of the more popular female superheroes ARE female versions of well established male characters.

I mean, if Jennifer Walters had been the first HULK, wouldn’t Bruce Banner then have to be HE-HULK???

Let’s just move on to this week’s books before the topic under discussion becomes too divisive shall we?

FABLES TP VOL 01 LEGENDS IN EXILE
DC COMICS
(W) Bill Willingham (A) Lan Medina & Various (CA) Mark Buckingham
When a savage creature known only as The Adversary conquered the fabled lands of legends and fairy tales, all of the infamous inhabitants of folklore were forced into exile. Disguised among the “mundys,” their name for normal citizens of modern-day New York, these magical characters created their own secret society that they call Fabletown. From their exclusive luxury apartment buildings on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, these creatures of legend must fight for their survival in the new world.
This first FABLES volume introduces Fabletown, and the murder mystery of Snow White’s party-girl sister, Rose Red. It’s up to Bigby, Fabletown’s sheriff, and a reformed and pardoned Big Bad Wolf, to determine if the culprit is Bluebeard, Rose’s ex-lover and notorious wife killer, or Jack, her current live-in boyfriend and former beanstalk-climber.
