UK based comic store, Limited Edition Comix based in Stevenage, Herts, is celebrating DC’s new 52 with a signing event with three of DC’s key creators.

Paul Cornell, Peter Milligan and Ben Oliver will be signing at the store on October 1st 2011 from 1pm until 3pm.

Richard Emms, one of the directors of the store, comments on the event and what the new DC 52 line has meant for his business and comic fans.

“When DC announced the new universe and a launch from issue one again we thought it was the perfect time to do so. For many years I’ve always wanted to see one of the bigger companies do something like this, and its perfect timing as this year has been the rise of the comic book into the mainstream markets thanks to the feature films and the interest again from a younger audience.

We wanted to celebrate the DC 52 in style and contacted Paul, Peter and Ben to see if they would be available to do a signing at the store – and now we have something that fans will certainly remember. We’d like to thank the guys for taking time out of their busy schedules and signing at the store.

We have ‘over-ordered’ on each of the titles that Paul, Peter and Ben have been involved with and we should have plenty of copies available on the day of signing – although sales have been very brisk in store and via our online web-store. We’ve actually held off listing them on eBay as we want fans to pick them up in store and even though the prices have almost doubled over night, we’ll still be keeping ours at a realistic price. Each customer will also get a certificate from the event too.

The DC 52 has been a breath of fresh air and we’ve certainly had an explosion of new fans wanting to jump on board the DC bandwagon. We’ve even had handfuls of customers sign up for six months of the new 52, adding new books into the mix too. Hopefully this is the start of something big for this great industry of ours... and about time too!”

Limited Edition Comix is located in Stevenage, Herts. 25 Mins from King Cross train station and junction 7 of the A1(M) motorway which is adjacent to the M1 (via Luton) and just off the M25. It has been in business for 6 years and has over 250,000 comics in stock as well as a wide range of toys, statues and collectibles.
