Comic Shop Spotlight On Fourth World Comics In Long Island, NY

Thanks to my cousin/awesome illustrator Cory (@sevenseptembers) who lives in Long Island, NY, I had the pleasure of visiting his local comic book store Fourth World Comics this past weekend. I'm always excited to visit comic book stores that I've never been to before, but this one was particularly impressive.  Zachary Maers and Terence Fischette greeted me behind the register and after I shared that I was a writer for Bleeding Cool, the hardcore comic book talk began! I learned that they've had a multitude of visits from amazing comic industry folk such as Scott Snyder and other important Batman company. I tried to compose myself as I walked to the back door where many of these people signed their names and doodled.

However, one thing that set them apart for me was learning about their store comic. They put out one page a month, and are currently on page #2. The comic is entitled Evil Son, story and art by Zachary J. Maers, story and script by Terence Fischette, and letters by Jesse Lacey. Take a look at the first two pages below and be sure to stop by this awesome store if you're in the Long Island, NY area.
