MLP Comic Launch Party at Beach Ball Comics

http://www.equestriadaily.com/2012/11/friendship-is-magic-comic-launch-party.html

I think as SoCal bronies we should definitely try and be at this event!

I just put in a random time, you can arrive there anytime after 11:00 AM (the store closes at 7:00 PM).

Here's the fb page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Beach-Ball-Comics/124733384214

    Has anypony received their preordered comics in the mail?

    November 30, 2012

    • Adrian "Art" G.

      I think at the time I bought it, it was $20. Right now it's $25. Different covers, different prices I guess!

      November 30, 2012

    • Stitch

      My order hasn't shipped yet :(

    December 1, 2012

    • Josh R.

      FOR PONIES!! Also to hang out with the creators and get those comics signed so they can be worth a lot of money in the later future depending on the condition you keep them in :-)

      December 1, 2012

    • ϟ Thunderlane ϟ

      but... i have no idea what these comics even are... missed a lot being not on the internet and not at any meetups for a while :P

    Anyone pass through Huntington park or Norwalk station? Need ride. :O

    November 30, 2012

    • Josh R.

      I take the 91 Freeway it passes by Norwalk if you need a ride

      November 30, 2012

    • Josh R.

      Should have left my phone number it is[masked] I am also willing to give anybody in the Torrance /Gardena /Carson /Redondo Beach area a ride but maximum capacity is 4

      November 30, 2012

  • Trini (.

    Why hasn't anyone made a carpool/info sheet for this? Woulda helped some of us who actually needed a ride and not bog down the ride request comments. :\

    Anyone coming through/from Burbank? :'D

    November 30, 2012

  • Adrian "Art" G.

    Looking at the weather, it looks like it'll just be hazy during Saturday. Sunday it should rain in Anaheim.

    November 29, 2012

  • Adrian "Art" G.

    Anyone in the San Diego area willing to give me a ride? I sort of have one already but it requires the absence of another person, so I can't assume it's definite. I'm willing to pay the gas fare no problem.

    November 28, 2012

  • Andrew Blue Firebird L.

    I think they should have it outside so that ppl wont be a fire hazard blocking the entrance for those that just wanna go inside and look around

    November 29, 2012

  • SketchBook

    Where do we meet??? :O

    any pony coming from Long Beach who could give me a ride?

    November 29, 2012

  • Yoshi The D.

    It's going to be a seroiusly huge line/crowd of people, I hope they have enough comics for everypony. ^-^;

    1 · November 28, 2012

    • Victor D.

      Preorders shouldn't be a problem but walkins I'm not so sure. Don't know if the shop be prepared enough for the massive turnout. They would need to buy 300 or more to be safe. First come first serve :p

      November 29, 2012

  • Victor D.

    Heads Up! On the Facebook event page, 270 bronies will be attending this event!. So I advise all of you to be there a few hours early to get the best spot in line. I'll be there with my helmet and B shirt, cyall there!

    November 28, 2012

    • Heather S.

      You probably did run into me at some point, though not in your cosplay. I've never spoken to you while you were the Doctor. I will definitely say hi next time, though. :) Haha, yeah, my feet and legs were starting to hurt, but I didn't really care. I was having way too much fun.

      November 29, 2012

    • Yoshi The D.

      @Heather Ok, look forward to meeting you again. Do talk to me and such, make sure you have my attention if I'm in my suit, since I cant see everything that happens around me. Ya, same here, too much fun, its always worth it to me.

      November 29, 2012

  • Bob H.

    December 1st is going to be epic...in addition to the comic book signing, look who returns on that day!!

    How big is the building?

    November 25, 2012

    • Andrew Blue Firebird L.

      Ya hopefully cuz hopefully it wont be like Gameology where.we were cramped lol

      November 26, 2012

    • Victor D.

      I been there, its pretty much the same if not smaller, counting on the amount of people here and the facebook event page, I think there won't be much room if they're leaving their merchandise around. I think a line may be formed and a limit of like 50-60 per entry.

      November 26, 2012

    Chris if you go I go. What about Terry? The guys from the con? Etc?

    • Victor D.

      Im also headed to the potluck park meetup after this.

      November 24, 2012

  • Bob H.

    Okay everypony, check this out...there will be a meetup at Twila Reed park at 3100 W. Orange Avenue just a few blocks north of Beach Ball Comics. We're gonna have food and drinks, and we want everypony to bring their autographed comics for a group photo that will be submitted to Equestria Daily.

    Some bronies out there will be bragging that they have all 19 or so cover variations...but even if we only have the standard cover issues, we'll have bragging rights that ours are autographed!

    November 23, 2012

    • Lord G.

      Yes, we'll show those bronies... By the way, can we contribute to the food stocks? I have pies and such leftover from Thanksgiving.

      1 · November 23, 2012

    • Lord G.

      Yep, just realized that this is also the meetup below. How Derpy of me.

      November 23, 2012

  • Bob Hershey changed the time from 1:00 PM to 11:30 AM

  • Tracy E.

    Oh man is anyone coming from nearby Redondo Beach?

    November 20, 2012

    • Josh R.

      I am coming from Torrance

      November 20, 2012

  • Trini (.

    I'd like to check this out. Anyone willing to give a ride to and from?

    November 18, 2012

  • Stitch

    Does anypony know if this cover will be used? http://www.meetup.com/SoCalBronies/photos/9702992/#[masked]

    November 17, 2012

    • Adrian "Art" G.

      As far as I know it's merely a promotional image, probably the only one of its kind at the moment. No store online or offline offers that particular cover.

      November 17, 2012

  • Bob H.

    From what I can tell (and I could easily be wrong so don't hold me to this) the comic book comes out on November 14th...i'm going to be checking the local comic book stores on that day just to be sure!

    Regardless of the release date, I will be at the signing! :D

    November 9, 2012

    • Adrian "Art" G.

      Do tell if true, most if not all of the online stores say they'll go out on the 28th.

      1 · November 9, 2012

    • Bob H.

      Okay, the official release date is DEFINITELY November 28th...comic artist Andy Price confirmed it via Twitter!

      November 16, 2012

  • Nicco R.

    You know what's great about this location? There are two collectable stores right next to this place and there's a Little Cesears as well.

    November 15, 2012

    • Josh R.

      Cool :3

      November 16, 2012

    • Bob H.

      And Twila Reed park is a few blocks north...maybe we could have a post-autograph meetup there if the weather cooperates.

      November 16, 2012

  • ϟ Thunderlane ϟ

    What is this exactly? ._. It's a tad bit far, maybe idk

    November 13, 2012

    • ϟ Thunderlane ϟ

      So, we can buy the comic at this meetup? At this place? 0^o

      November 14, 2012

    • Nicco R.

      Eeyup

      November 15, 2012

  • Scootaloo

    I think I can possibly make it.

    November 10, 2012

  • Heather S.

    Did this location get a special cover? I've been checking EqD and it seems like only a couple of comic book stores have exclusive covers.

    November 9, 2012

    • Adrian "Art" G.

      Maybe, but the most definite exclusive is one signed by the authors themselves, even if it is the original cover.

      1 · November 9, 2012

    • Heather S.

      That's for sure. I was just curious.

    I'm actually glad that it got pushed back a little bit since it got moved to a Saturday instead of being on a Wednesday. Therefore, I can actually make it =)

    November 9, 2012

  • Joshua S.

    That time is perfect for me! See you there!

    November 4, 2012

  • Adrian "Art" G.

    A Saturday...Fantastic. :)

    November 4, 2012

  • Adrian "Art" Glenn changed the date and time from Wednesday, November 28, 2012 at 2:00 PM to Saturday, December 01, 2012 at 1:00 PM

  • Adrian "Art" Glenn changed the date and time from Wednesday, November 14, 2012 at 2:00 PM to Wednesday, November 28, 2012 at 2:00 PM

    October 6, 2012

  • Adrian "Art" G.

    Hmm, what with this link:

    http://www.equestriadaily.com/2...

    It seems that the comic will definitely NOT be released on the 14th but instead on the 28th (still a Wednesday, dang).

    Anyway, I'm seriously considering changing the Meetup date, since it won't make sense for them to arrive on the 14th with no comic out right?

    October 6, 2012

  • Victor D.

    Release date of the Mlp Comic may have been pushed back to Nov 28th, due to Season 3 being released first.

    • Ohad K.

      I actually called Beach Back earlier today, a manager there told that they're most likely to change the date since, in his words: "If the the product is not out yet, we can't do a release event for it"

      October 4, 2012

    • Victor D.

      <|:( " But I wanted to party."

      New comics are released every week on Wednesday.

    This is just down the street for me. This is gonna be SO AWESOME!!!

    October 1, 2012

  • Adrian "Art" G.

    Then I'd like a ride good sir!

    October 1, 2012

  • Adrian "Art" G.

    @Cayci I didn't know the official time for the event so that's why I just put 2:00. The store opens from 11:00AM-7:00PM so I guess yeah 2:00 would secure you a less crowded spot.

    October 1, 2012

  • Hector Vargas J.

    I wonder what the other comic fans think of ponies?

    October 1, 2012

  • Cayci

    The official time for the event is 4 pm...so is the time for this 2 pm so we can get in line early?

    September 30, 2012

  • Bob H.

    I missed out on the trading cards, so i'm not going to miss out on the comics!
