Please Consider Helping a Member of the FPNYC Family’s Family

Many of you may remember our old colleague Ruben Miranda (he of Comic Guys videos infamy). He’s a fine fellow.

Unfortunately one of Ruben’s closest family members, his godson/nephew Manny, tragically passed away in a car accident this past weekend. Ruben spoke of him often and with love. It’s incredibly difficult for me to imagine what he and his family are going through right now.

Of course, this came as a surprise to people not prepared for such a young death in the family and, as such, they’ve posted a GoFundMe campaign to help with his funeral expenses. I humbly implore you, especially those customers in the FP community whom Ruben introduced to the wonders of his favorite comics and graphic novels, to donate even a couple of bucks if you can.

Thank you.

Model Hunger DVD Release Party July 13th

Wednesday July 13th from 6:30 – 8:30 come celebrate the DVD release of Model Hunger at Forbidden Planet NYC!

Model Hunger Forbidden Planet NYC signing Debbie Rochon

One of our favorite companies, Wild Eye Releasing is putting out the feature film directorial debut of Debbie Rochon, one of our most favorite people in the world, and we’re gonna have a release party of epic proportions to celebrate!  Just look at this guest list…

Debbie Rochon – Director
James Morgart – Writer, Executive Producer
Mary Bogle – Star
Voltaire – Star
Kaylee Williams – Star
David Marancik – Star
Michael Thurber – Star
Carmine Capobianco – Star
Suzi Lorraine – Star

You probably know Debbie from at least one of her two hundred plus roles (you read that right… TWO HUNDRED PLUS – that means more than two hundred). In fact IMDB currently boasts 246 acting credits. She’s been directed by a countless number of independent auteurs, so it’s about time she got behind the camera to give us her visceral vision. I’m sure anyone who has been directed by the likes of Lloyd Kaufman or Chris Seaver has said to themselves… “I can do that!” and we here at FP are glad that Debbie did.

Former model and actress Ginny (Lynn Lowry) had been cast aside by the modeling industry when she was a young woman due to her body type – and she didn’t take the rejection well. When new neighbors Debbie and Sal move in, they begin to notice strange things happening, as the list of missing young women begins to grow. What has Ginny been doing in her basement all these years, and can she be stopped’

Terror Assaulter release party with Ben Marra!

terrorposter_wheeler

Join us at Forbidden Planet NYC on September 16th from 6PM to 8PM in celebration of Fantagraphics’ Terror Assaulter! Artist, writer, all around cool dude Benjamin Marra will be on hand signing copies of his newest slice of psychotronic comics. Marra has been a Forbidden Planet favorite since the release of his 80’s stripper slasher opus Night Business, and his newest work promises to be filled to the brim with all the sex, violence, and tongue in cheek humor that we’ve come to know and love him for. These are not independent comics, they’re exploitation comics!

If you can’t make the event? Well boo on you, but that doesn’t mean you have to be left out. Preorder signed copies of Terror Assaulter now from www.fpnyc.com and we will ship them to you after our event on September 16th.

9781606998830

Cartoonist Benjamin Marra brilliantly satirizes America’s obsession with justice — and disinterest in consequences — via a highly stylized, hyper- masculine style that gushes with violence, sex, and international intrigue, battering down the boundaries between psychedelia, political commentary, and aggressive expressionism. Terror Assaulter must defeat Terror at all costs, as long as it leaves time for steamy dates with hot chicks. The man’s codename is O.M.W.O.T. (One Man War On Terror) and he is the world’s greatest protector, and a villain’s worst nightmare. This is a hilarious satire of American foreign policy over the last decade, neocon philosophy, the state of American masculinity and sexuality, and male power fantasy in escapist entertainment.

What: Benjamin Marra signs Terror Assaulter (O.M.W.O.T.)
Where: Forbidden Planet NYC 834 Broadway NYC
When: Wednesday, Sept 16th 6-8 PM

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.

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.
