Signed Spawn Poster Giveaway – Instagram/Twitter

The much anticipated 250th issue of Spawn finally releases tomorrow and to celebrate the occasion Forbidden Planet’s giving YOU a chance to win a FREE Spawn Resurrection poster signed by Todd McFarlane, Jon Boy and Brian Wood!

Signed Todd McFarlane poster

What you gotta do to enter:

Come to Forbidden Planet on Wednesday 2/4/15, tweet at us (@FPNYC) or tag us on Instagram (#forbiddenplanetnyc) a picture of you in the shop with a copy of Spawn #250 and you’re entered into a drawing to win this:

It’s that simple, albeit only open to those of you who can make it to the shop tomorrow. Creativity won’t increase your chances of winning, but come on, this is for posterity. (My idea? A pic of you buying the book from a ridiculously good-looking cashier!)

One random winner will be picked at 9am on Thursday (2/5/15) morning. Good luck!!!

Please note: This is a promotional poster for Spawn Resurrection #1, that will not feature the originally planned creative team. Also, this poster is by no means Near Mint. Truthfully, it was handled by our supplier rather poorly. It will be presented to the winner in the condition we received it.

But hey, it’s FREE!

Forbidden Planet NYC Sponsoring This Week’s Geek Girl Brunch

IMG_2285Lotsa free comics, a special coupon, and some random neat-o surprises (for example, one attendee’s going home with a 1:100 Grant Morrison variant to Multiversity #1, someone’s got a copy of Frank Quitely’s DC art book coming to them… etc.). The event’s booked solid with a waiting list, but be sure to get in touch with them if you’d like to be involved in their future gigs.

Check out this Batgirl piece Cameron Stewart drummed up to celebrate the party!

Check Out This Photo of Method Man Shopping at Forbidden Planet in 1994

Acclaimed hip hop photographer Chi Modu posted this glorious, nostalgia-inducing shot of Method Man shopping at The Planet (821 Broadway iteration) in 1994 to his Instagram account yesterday.

Method Man at Forbidden Planet NYC 1994Anyone wanna take a bet that Johnny Blaze was picking up some Ghost Rider comics?

ALSO- that beautiful wall of science fiction paperbacks with a Marvel Universe poster hanging above it in the background? Yeeeeahhh… That’s where you can pick up $12 salads and $8 cups of crappy pulled pork over crappy quinoa in the Pret A Manger that currently occupies our old space. SMH.
