Diva Visited GnB Comic's Spanking New Place for Halloween Comics Fest!

Yesterday (29 October 2016), Red Dot Diva visited GnB Comic's spankin' brand new shop at Kitchener Complex for Halloween Comics Fest!

Halloween Comics Fest is an annual worldwide event when free horror comic books are given out to fans of all ages at participating stores. This was also Red Dot Diva's first time attending the celebration.

One of the few comics bookstores existing in Red Dot Island, GnB Comics has been operating at Rochor Centre for several years. Unfortunately, the blocks of old but colourful apartments and shops were marked for demolition, and as that time drew nearer, fans and members of GnB were getting twitchy wondering if the shop will carry on at another site or close its shutters for good.

Then, in late September, a surprise announcement was made on GnB Comics' mobile app. The comic book store has found a new home at Kitchener Complex, which is just a hop and a skip away from Lavender MRT Station! Woohoo!

STGCC 2013: Hot Toys To Exhibit Iron Man Suits; Nathan Hamill As Guest and More!


It may be slightly less than 2 weeks to STGCC 2013 but to this geek, it is one hell of a wait!!!

Late last week, the STGCC organizers announced their final wave of guests which include an AWESOME announcement that will make all Iron Man fans tremble-scream-squeal-faint with delight.

Hot Toys' The Iron Man Experience
As if Hot Toys' own toys isn't hot enough, the company has decided to team up with Action City to showcase an exact life-sized replica of the Hall of Armor from Tony Stark’s Malibu mansion! WOO HOO!!!

FCBD 2012: Nicola Scott at GnB Comics

Yesterday's FCBD 2012 was one of those simply wonderful, geeky-fun days.

Even the Red Dot Island weather cooperated with this year's FCBD. It was not typically humid, with just the right mix of sunshine and cool breeze, making it perfect for a comic book hunt.

To kick-off FCBD 2012, Red Dot Diva dragged herself out of bed bright and early (although not as early as some, so she heard!!) at about 8 am. She stopped by at Bugis Junction's Toastbox for a much needed caffeine infusion with fellow geeks, Ryan (from Steel Reviews) and Melvin (a frequent contributor for HereBeGeeks), before they headed to GnB Comics nearby.

FCBD 2012: More Comic Book Geekery In Local Stores!

Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) is approaching and more details have surfaced from this year's participating stores.

After a successful FCBD debut last year, Kinokuniya returns as one of the stores involved in this Saturday's events. And they have made a couple of cool announcements.

Firstly, privilege card members will be able to get their stack of free comics when they produce their membership card at the Kinokuniya's Orchard Road flagship store! (Don't be greedy, Red Dot Diva warns. One set for each member only!) Also, specially for members, there is a 20% discount going on for all comics purchased!

In addition, Kinokuniya has added a more family-friendly theme by inviting the local Star Wars 501st Legion for a store appearance. What better way to kickstart your children's geek cred than by getting them to meet Star Wars characters??

New to the FCBD fray this year is Paradigm Infinitum (PI) - the #1 Board & Tabletop Games store in Singapore! The shop is located at #03-01 of Midpoint Orchard, just a hop away from Kinokuniya. Head to PI to help them celebrate the soft launch of their new graphic novels section. They will be giving all store visitors 10 free comics! The freebies may not be the official FCBD comic releases but why would anyone turn down some cool comics for free?!?

FCBD 2012: Avengers Movie Night, Special Guest Signings and Comic Books (Free Of Course, Duh!)

It is less than 2 weeks away to Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) 2012!

This special day is held on the 1st Saturday of May every year, and this year, Red Dot Island comic book fans are all set to celebrate the festivities on May 5th.

So far, "geek-boy-centric" comics book store GnB Comics has been the earliest to announce their FCBD guests and activities.

From 10 am to 1pm on 5th May, two special guests will be making an appearance for signings at their store at Block 1, Rochor Center, #02-500. Red Dot Diva says one will not be able to miss the shop. It will be the one with the longest line outside and a few cosplayers lurking around!

And.... if you are a DC fan, you would be over the moon for this year's FCBD. This is because GnB's special guests are comic book artists Nicola Scott and Ardian Syaf!
