Our friends across 113th Avenue at Mercury Medical are allowing our Guests to use their huge parking lot, just past their building on the right after you pass our parking lot! The image shows you the yellow circles that are okay to park in, and the red X’s where the other businesses do not allow parking. If the “approved” lots fill up, it is definitely better to park along 113th Avenue (but not in the grass), than in one of the “unapproved” lots. It’s possible that another business owner could have vehicles towed from those lots.

DEAD PANIC GAME DEMONSTRATION
Saturday, June 18th from noon to 5pm

Double Exposure, Inc. Envoy and Emerald City present a Dead Panic game demonstration!

Herald Bill Eastman will be with us once again to demonstrate the game. He will be teaching new players how to play the game and to show off to the public all the fantastic components that make up this excellent game!

Here’s some info about the game:

The zombie apocalypse has begun, and you and your friends take on the roles of various characters who are all working to survive.

In Dead Panic, each player takes on the role of one of eight unique characters, which have special abilities. Players work together to survive in a remote cabin, at the center of the board, against waves of the undead that close in from the edges of the board. If the players can hold out, survivors bring pieces of the radio needed to call for rescue. Once rescue arrives, it’s up to each player to leave the safety of the cabin and make it out alive!

To fight the zombies, players use cabin cards, some of which are weapons that help players attack zombies at a distance or in hand-to-hand combat. If characters take too many injuries during combat, they die and return to the game as a zombie with customized rules as a member of the undead! Other cabin cards are items, which give the players various benefits and a better chance at survival. The supply of items and weapons is limited, however. Once the cabin deck is exhausted, it is not reshuffled. A separate deck of cards, called event cards, allow the zombies to have their turn. This deck not only brings a variety of zombies into play but each card also has a special effect when drawn.

Can you survive Dead Panic?

MUNCHKIN PANIC GAME DEMONSTRATION
Sunday, June 19th from noon to 5pm

Double Exposure, Inc. Envoy and Emerald City present a Munchkin Panic game demonstration!

Herald Bill Eastman will be with us once again to demonstrate the game. He will be teaching new players how to play the game and to show off to the public all the fantastic components that make up this excellent game!

Here’s some info about the game:

Munchkin Panic is a semi-cooperative board game that blends the all-for-one gameplay of Castle Panic and the all-for-me gameplay of Munchkin.

In this hybrid game, the Munchkin monsters have found the Castle Panic towers and are on the rampage! Players need to combine cards to hit and slay the monsters before they destroy the castle. The card combos available in Munchkin Panic are created from a unique mixing of the decks of the two source games. Each defeated monster becomes a trophy and gives up its treasure to the victor. If players work together to defeat the monsters, the player with the highest point count becomes Master Munchkin — but players must balance their self-interest with the cooperation necessary to survive. If players get too greedy, the monsters will stomp the castle flat while the players are too busy fighting amongst themselves!

HEROCLIX TOURNAMENT MEETUP
HEROCLIX TOURNAMENT – “LADIES NIGHT”! 400 PT GOLDEN AGE CONSTRUCTED
Friday, June 24th from 6:30pm to 9pm

$3 entry fee.

400 points. Golden Age format. Your team must consist of female characters ONLY.

We’re playing for Green Arrow from the Brave & The Bold Organized play kit.

What’s this about?: HeroClix tournaments are a sanctioned series of events that offer players opportunities for competitive play and exclusive figures. Tired of beating your friends? Bring your A-game here and see how you do. First time players at EC always get a figure!

What do you need to play?: For constructed tournaments, you’ll need to supply your team, meeting the requirements that week’s format issued. It’s also recommended that you bring your own maps, so you have the advantage should you win the roll for map choice. However, Dice and Maps are available in limited numbers.

What is ‘Golden Age’?: Golden Age is essentially an unrestricted format. Any figure can be used, as far back as Marvel HeroClix: Infinity Challenge (the first set). The only figures that cannot be used are the Purple Ringed promo figures, and other non-comic sets, such as Lord of the Rings, Kick-Ass 2, Mage Knight, Yu-Gi-Oh, and DOTA 2 (unless specified by the format). All Errata is in effect for Golden Age play.

How are the prizes distributed?: For standard Constructed play, we usually issue a prize for 1st place, 2nd place, and Fellowship. Fellowship is a sportsmanship prize, and can be awarded to someone who the judge feels carried themselves in an exemplary fashion in demeanor during the event. Usually, if everyone qualifies for the Fellowship prize, this is awarded via roll-off.

Read the rulebook to learn the game…

…or stop by during a tournament to see how it’s played!

MyVillage
MY VILLAGE GAME DEMONSTRATION
Saturday, June 25th from noon to 5pm

Double Exposure, Inc. Envoy and Emerald City present a My Village game demonstration!

Herald Bill Eastman will be with us once again to demonstrate the game. He will be teaching new players how to play the game and to show off to the public all the fantastic components that make up this excellent game!

Here’s some info about the game:

A new chapter opens in the Village chronicles! In this standalone game, each player is in charge of his very own village, controlling its entire fate. Known places and characters conjoin with new mechanisms to make up a gaming experience that feels so familiar and is yet so different from Village!

Village enthusiasts will recognize some core elements, for example, the life-time track and the village chronicle, yet the new dice mechanism gives a whole new twist and dynamic to taking actions. My Village is of similar game weight as Village.

Here’s a link to the BoardGameGeek page for the game:

ECBC! THE EMERALD CITY BOOK CLUB
Tuesday, July 5th from 7pm to 8pm

ECBC meets the FIRST TUESDAY of the month from 7-8pm to discuss the featured book.

The featured book is THIS ONE SUMMER, by Mariko & Jillian Tamaki:
Every summer, Rose goes with her mom and dad to a lake house in Awago Beach. It’s their getaway, their refuge. Rose’s friend Windy is always there, too, like the little sister she never had. But this summer is different. Rose’s mom and dad won’t stop fighting, and when Rose and Windy seek a distraction from the drama, they find themselves with a whole new set of problems. One of the local teens, just a couple of years older than Rose and Windy, is caught up in something bad. It’s a summer of secrets, and sorrow, and growing up, and it’s a good thing Rose and Windy have each other.

The featured book for next meeting will be announced at the end of the current meeting.

The featured book is 20% OFF for the month leading up to its ECBC meeting!
(Discount will be calculated at the register, and does not combine with any other discounts or programs).

Featured Graphic Novels:

 

DARK NIGHT A TRUE BATMAN STORY HC
DARK NIGHT A TRUE BATMAN STORY HC (MR)
DC COMICS
(W) Paul Dini (A/CA) Eduardo Risso
The Caped Crusader has been the all-abiding icon of justice and authority for generations. But in this surprising original graphic novel, we see Batman in a new light-as the savior who helps a discouraged man recover from a brutal attack that left him unable to face the world.
In the 1990s, Eisner Award-winning writer Paul Dini had a flourishing career writing the hugely popular Batman: The Animated Series and Tiny Toon Adventures. Walking home one evening, he was jumped and viciously beaten within an inch of his life. His recovery process was arduous, hampered by the imagined antics of the villains he was writing for television including The Joker, Harley Quinn and the Penguin. But despite how bleak his circumstances were, or perhaps because of it, Dini also always imagined the Batman at his side during his darkest moments.
DARK NIGHT: A TRUE BATMAN STORY is the harrowing and eloquent autobiographical tale of Dini’s courageous struggle to overcome a truly desperate situation. It is a Batman story like none other and one that will truly resonate with fans. Art by the incredibly talented Eduardo Risso (100 BULLETS, DARK KNIGHT III: THE MASTER RACE).

“JUSTIN’S JABBER” — BACK ISSUES
—————————————————

 

HEY-HO-LET’S GO!
That’s the Ramones, in case you didn’t know, and if you didn’t know … c’mon, who hasn’t heard of the Ramones?
The Ramones are, or more accurately were, a rock n’ roll group; a bunch of kinda grimey dudes all with the last name Ramone. They were a unit; like-minded individuals all working toward a common goal.
I’m a big fan rock n’ roll groups like the Ramones and I’m also a big fan of cooperation, community, teamwork, fellowships, organisations, scenes.
We all need time to ourselves, but being lonely sucks. Life’s better with company.

Where, you may ask, am I going with all of this rumination on the topic of togetherness?
Glad you asked! This week’s selections are all complete “Story Packs” as we call them here at the ol’ EC! Entire stories, complete from beginning to end, sold as a group. Why buy one comic when you can buy a bunch?

 

jla1

jla2

JLA/Avengers #1-4, $45.
This one is particularly thematic within the context of the group, being that it’s two companies that are normally rivals working together to make one very cool story. Have you ever seen the cover to JLA/Avengers #4? Superman holding Mjolnir in one hand and Cap’s shield in the other? It don’t get much more super-heroic than that!

 

fp1

fp2

Flashpoint #1-5, $50.
Here we have a group of alternate reality versions of some of our favorite heroes helping Flash to … well basically reset the whole DC Universe, which was reset again very recently. Superhero universes are kinda like old NES consoles. Sometimes they need to be reset a bunch of times before they work correctly.

 

cage1

cage2

Cage MAX #1-5, $25.
Not much group cooperation to speak of here. As far as I know, Luke Cage flies solo in this one.
No Jessica Jones, no Iron Fist, no Avengers, just Luke behaving in a very R-rated manner. Not exactly thematic in terms of story content, but it’s still a group of comics being sold all together so it still counts.
…totally counts.

 

zombies1

zombies2

Marvel Zombies Versus Army of Darkness #1-5.
Another example of two normally separate fictional universes coming together in sweet harmony. Ash likes to kills zombies and the Marvel Zombies seem to enjoying being zombies and getting killed … or re-killed, I guess. Can one really “kill” something that’s undead? It’s more like you would be re-deading the undead by “killing” them. All confusing terminology aside, this is a cool set. Buy it. Read it. Love it.

 

Speaking of dead people: R.I.P. Johnny, Joey, Tommy, and my favorite, Dee-Dee Ramone. If you guys were tired of resting in peace and decided to come back as zombies, I promise no one will re-dead you. A Zombie Ramones World Tour would be the coolest thing ever!

 

(Please call us at 727-398-2665 for condition, availability, or any other questions about the books!)

We have a lot more where those came from on our two — count em’ TWO — vintage comics walls! So stop in for a nostalgic treat, or check out our online shop for select vintage comics:

DOMINION EMPIRES
DOMINION EMPIRES EXPANSION
The world is big and your kingdom gigantic! In fact, it’s no longer a kingdom really… it`s an empire! Which makes you the emperor! This entitles you to a better chair, plus you can name a salad after yourself. But, it’s not easy being emperor. The day starts early, when you light the sacred flame; then it`s hours of committee meetings, trying to establish exactly why the sacred flame keeps going out. Sometimes your armies take over a continent and you just have no idea where to put it. And there’s the risk of assassination; you have a food taster, who tastes anything before you eat it, and a dagger tester, who gets stabbed by anything before it stabs you. You`ve taken to staying at home whenever it`s the Ides of anything. Still, overall, it`s a great job. You wouldn’t trade it for the world – especially given how much of the world you already have.

 

NETRUNNER FEAR MASSES
NETRUNNER LCG: FEAR THE MASSES
Election Day is here in Fear the Masses, the sixth and final Data Pack in the Mumbad Cycle for Android: Netrunner! Featuring some of the cycle`s most potent and deck-defining cards, Fear the Masses carries the Indian Union`s heated elections to their climax, but leaves it to you to deal with the fall-out. Sixty new cards (including a complete playset of nineteen different cards) feature plenty to excite fans of all factions, but especially NBN and those Runners who identify themselves as Anarchs – they gain a new identity, region upgrade, and high-pressure discard strategies.

    Join us for EC Game Day, as our friends from All Things Nerdy host a Learn & Play session, followed by an Open Play session!

    If you're not familiar with the featured game, or need a quick refresher, you can join our Learn & Play from noon to 2pm, where our friendly and patient friends from All Things Nerdy will teach you the game and answer your questions! Or you can join us for Open Play of the featured game, or any of our gaming demos during that time!

    NO ONE gets you into the game like Emerald City Comics!!!

    The featured game for this session is... UNFAIR

    Build the city’s greatest theme park, whatever it takes!

    Mix your favourite themes, from Pirate, Robot, Vampire, Jungle, Ninja, and Gangster. Build attractions and upgrade them to match blueprints, stack up towering rides, or simply make the most cash.

    But watch out - your competitors may pay off the safety inspectors to close your rides or hire hooligans to vandalise your park! How will you get revenge?

    Whatever happens, it’s bound to be Unfair.

    Over the course of 8 rounds, you play Event cards to help yourself and hinder your opponents, build Attractions and Upgrades using Park cards, and match your park to Blueprints.

    You might hire staff to help you, or build a Super Attraction with a unique ability. Bribing officials and blackmailing politicians is also possible, but entirely

    STAR WARS DESTINY: LEGACIES

    Expand your Star Wars: Destiny collection with Legacies, a new set of booster packs for the collectible dice and card game!

    Legacies continues the evolution of Star Wars: Destiny, expanding on classic archetypes while introducing new mechanisms, including a new die symbol and a new card type. As a new Base Set, Legacies is a solid starting point for Destiny newcomers while introducing innovative new concepts that challenge classic gameplay and tactics.

    TOPIARY

    In Topiary, players try to position their visitors on the outer edge of a beautiful topiary garden in order to give them the best view possible. Visitors can see the closest topiary sculpture to them and any behind that, in the same sight line, that are larger. You can score bonus points for visitors who see multiple topiary sculptures of the same type. Players slowly fill in the garden by adding tiles until everyone has placed all their visitors.

    DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS: DUNGEON TILES REINCARNATED

    Breathe life into your tabletop game with these full color dungeon tiles. Infinitely expandable and easy to set up, these dungeon tiles allow you to create the adventures you want to play.

    Available in the following sets:

    -Dungeon

    Tiles to make fantastic dungeon maps: contains 16 durable, double-sided, fully illustrated tile sheets, featuring dungeon rooms, corridors, caverns, tunnels, and other terrain elements that Dungeon Masters can use to build exciting encounters.

    -Wildernesss

    Tiles to make fantastic wilderness maps: contains 16 durable, double-sided, fully illustrated tile sheets, featuring grasslands, ruins, sandy beaches, and other terrain elements that Dungeon Masters can use to build exciting encounters.

    -City

    Tiles to make fantastic city maps: contains 16 durable, double-sided, fully illustrated tile sheets, featuring city streets, buildings, sewers, and other terrain elements that Dungeon Masters can use to build exciting encounters.

    VALERIAN: ALPHA MISSIONS

    Valerian: The Alpha Missions gives fans of tabletop gaming and the Valerian franchise the opportunity to discover Alpha, a vast metropolis in which species from across the universe gather over centuries to share knowledge, intelligence, and cultures. After assembling a team of agents, players must cooperate to explore a contested zone of Alpha, race to complete objectives while battling and evading enemies. Complete the missions and get to the extraction site in time to win!

    The game board consists of randomly placed tiles that are revealed as agents move around the map, creating a unique experience each game. Players will never know who or what they might encounter – enemies could attack or players may discover valuable resources to power their mission gear. Each player must decide whether to split up and accomplish their objectives faster or sacrifice valuable resources to save their teammates. As the clock runs down and enemies gain ground, only the most skilled team of agents will complete their missions to return as heroes.

    ECBC: Comics recommendations by “Doctor Vince”! 1/12/18

    “Doctor Vince” is a rocket scientist by day, and an EC Book Club (ECBC) moderator by night! EC Book Club - Hawkeye vol 2: Little Hits! is the featured book at our next ECBC meeting.

    Here are the comics and graphic novels that caught his attention in this month’s Previews (in addition to his usual pull list, and EC’s picks this month!). To ensure that you get these books when they arrive, please call the store at 727-398-2665 or email our Books & New Comics Merchant at stephanie@emeraldcitycomics.com, to reserve a copy!

    From the Previews Catalog #352, January 2018 (for books arriving mainly in March 2018)…
    www.previewsworld.com/catalog

    One story spanning eight timelines - told by Europe’s mightiest comics creators (examples from the original French editions)

    Infinity 8 #1 (pages 378-379) - The deep-space cruise ship "Infinity 8" encounters a field of debris of unknown origin, and eight of the ship's top security agents are sent to investigate in eight separate parallel time-loops. But secrets lie within the inter-species population on the ship, some of whom may know more than they lead on. The debut of a far-out, pulpy, sci-fi series of parallel adventures in the tongue-in-cheek tradition of the original Heavy Metal, but for a new generation (Newsarama).

    Potion Explosion is a game for 2 to 4 players by Horrible Games.

    Dear students, it's time for the final exams of the Potions class! The rules are always the same: Take an ingredient marble from the dispenser and watch the others fall. If you connect marbles of the same color, they explode and you can take them, too! Complete your potions using the marbles you collect, and drink them to unleash their magical power. Remember, though, that to win the Student of the Year award, being quick won't be enough: you'll also need to brew the most valuable potions in Potion Explosion!
