A RETURN TO FORM
It seems 2018 is a force to be reckoned with! It's an ongoing battle of one step forward and two steps back.

As fall succumbs to winter and things get a little quieter on the news front we're going to slow down our newsletter to bi-weekly in order to better focus our energies for the time being. So we'll spam your inbox a little less over the coming months as we turn our focus to wrapping up 2018 and getting organized for 2019.

Thank you all for your continued support,
Ramón.
Just a reminder that RAID TWO and our RAID TWO: SKETCH EDITION are now both available for pre-order in our online store! The Sketch Edition is limited to only a 100 copies and the first dozen have already disappeared at Fan Expo!

 
MCX THIS WEEKEND!
A LOOK BACK AT THE FALL
CELEBRATING THE DRAGON'S 20TH YEAR!
Held in the stunning Old Quebec Mall near their flagship store in Guelph Ontario and curated by Eisner Spirit Award recipient and Dragon owner Jennifer Haines it was a weekend to top all weekends! RAID was honoured to be a part of such a memorable event! On hand was Kalman Andrasofszky, Marcus To, Eric Vedder, Kyle J. Smith, Gabe Sapienza, and Anthony Falcone. To quote an excitable Kyle J. Smith "The show was f---ing dope!" We couldn't have summarized more succinctly.
GHENT YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT!
(sigh - who comes up with these titles) 
Ramón had the honour of being a guest of Belgium's premier comic show FACTS and couldn't have been more impressed with the high quality of the show, the great vibe of the fans, and the city itself! Joined by compatriot Rob Coughler they together enjoyed the historic sites of the city along with it's delicious culinary offerings. With it's old world charm and it's historic 800+ year old Gravensteen Castle they highly recommend a trip to this fabulous and city out of time.
IF RAID COMES TO THE FOREST DOES ANYBODY HEAR?
(REALLY?! I feel unwell...)
Our London (Ontario - not the UK - we're not that global) faction of Eric Vedder, his Aardehn writing partner Sheldon Carter, and "War With Art"  podcast co-host George "Threat Machine" Spanos were on hand at the Forest City Comicon for it's one day show on September 22nd! The London Boys were in full "Charming" mode - so we apologize for anything they may have said or done.
We'd be remiss if we didn't mention the upcoming release of Threat Machine's new album "Echoes of a Butterfly" available November 30th. The album's progress had been verbally catalogued on the aforementioned London trio's podcast "War With Art" so it's exciting to finally see it's completion! "Echoes of a Butterfly" weaves together sonic elements of ambient, electronic, glitch, drone, and experimental music to create a unique listening experience.

Who are those guys? Some very big fish-and you know what big fish do? Eat smaller fish like Aquaman and his Justice League buddies!

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT
DEADPOOL # 5
Written by Scottie Young, Illustrated by Scott Hepburn, Colours by Ian Herring. Cover by Nic Klein

Ah, Halloween! Trick-or-treating, spooky ghost stories, zombies coming to life and terrorizing your local mall, elaborate jack-o-lanterns...

Wait a minute...one of those things doesn't sound good! It doesn't sound good at all!

Well, I guess DEADPOOL will have to handle it - if he can survive a walkathon turned zombie-thon!

All this, and the return of a classic MARVEL VILLAIN that will send chills up your spine!
