Patrick Brower has spent years refining and honing his comic retail expertise (he calls the process "refoning", possibly trademarked), and he's put all his lessons learned to work for Challengers. If you need someone at a comic store to be able to go from amiable to gregarious straight on through to winning, all while divining the book you've needed your whole life without realizing it, Patrick's your guy.

Friday, July 12th, 2019 - Challengers is crazy-excited to announce a DC Ink signing for TEEN TITANS RAVEN with #1 New York Times best-selling co-author of Beautiful CreaturesKAMI GARCIA and artist GABRIEL PICOLO!
Teen Titans Raven is part of the DC Ink line and appropriate for readers 13-and up.
“When a tragic accident takes the life of seventeen-year-old Raven Roth’s foster mom—and Raven’s memory—she moves to New Orleans to live with her foster mother’s family and finish her senior year of high school.
Starting over isn’t easy. Raven remembers how to solve math equations and make pasta, but she can’t remember her favorite song or who she was before the accident. When strange things start happening—things most people would consider impossible—Raven starts to think it might be better not to know who she was in her previous life.
But as she grows closer to her foster sister, Max, her new friends, and Tommy Torres, a guy who accepts her for who she is now, Raven has to decide if she’s ready to face what’s buried in the past...and the darkness building inside her.”
Kami and Gabriel will be at Challengers on Friday, July 12th, from 4:00PM – 6:00PM. Copies of Teen Titans Raven will be available for purchase at that time.
