The Next Best Thing

We know you must be upset about missing the San Diego Comic-Con this year, and for a moment there, we were too. Before you fret any longer, Tate's Comics is here to save the day with its own rendition, otherwise known as Not at Comic-Con. Knowing what a letdown it can be to miss the San Diego Comic-Con, Tate's is committed to upholding its tradition as the festival enters its fifth year. This year, it's time to brace yourselves for free stuff, the third-annual Tate's Cos­playrade, Nakia's Xtreme Comic Trivia Challenge, a free copy of the Tate's Indy Comic Anthology, Tate's Trailer premiere of Golden Tate 5: Mech Attack!, and informative and fun minipanels, all combined with the authenticity of the "real" comic-con. Don't believe us? Just check out the sponsors: DC, Image, Marvel Comics, Valiant Comics, IDW, Dark Horse, Zenescope, and Legendary Entertainment. Capes and costumes are strongly encouraged, and those wearing such attire will receive 10 percent off their entire purchase.
