Smell Like Mark Waid

I love the nonsensical approach of this. It reminds me of the Star Trek fragrances I saw at Comic Con last year. Well, BOOM! Studios (of which Mark Waid is the EIC) is celebrating the 1 year anniversary of their hit title (written by Waid) of hero turned villain, Irredeemable. If you’re near Challenger’s Comics, drop by, drink, sniff and converse with the BOOM! crew and your fellow fans. Details below, and here’s an awesome summary of Black Phoenix Alchemy Labs and the good work they do for nerd nostrils:
