Get Adrenalized at Meltdown Comics

You ever been to a party where the punch was spiked? Actually, have you ever been to a party where there was actually punch to spike? The idea of spiking red punch is somewhat antiquated, but the idea of a red spike is a little bit more contemporary. And nothing is more contemporary in that regard than Red Spike Vol. 1 TP, celebrating a release at Midtown Comics.

On March 7, starting at 6 PM, Jeff Cahn will be on hand at the store in Los Angeles offering autographs of the work, free alcohol, free Red Bull and free first issues of Samurai's Blood and Marksmen.

In case you're unaware of what exactly a Red Spike is, it's all about the soldiers Matt Cutler and Greg Dane, the first to survive the project of the same name. Unfortunately, an upgrade to Greg's implant goes awry and it's up to Matt to chase him down before he does any damage.

Full press release below.
