Eric Wright signing on July 10

Monday, July 8, 2024

“Truckstop Hipsters” creator Eric Wright is signing in Norman, OK!
You’ve seen Eric “E. Danger” Wright at comic-cons including Houston Comicpalooza and Planet Comicon in Kansas City. Now you can see him here in Norman, OK, starting at 10 a.m. Wednesday, July 10!
Here’s how Wright describes his comic “Truckstop Hipsters.”
“Really, it’s a comedy about four friends who get caught up in a wild adventure of waffles and murder. It’s about how self-identity does not make the person, but their attitude towards themselves and others does. It’s about many things, but nothing terribly serious, because the world is already too serious. So, let’s have some fun and enjoy some satire.”
Meet Wright during New Comics Day on July 10 at Speeding Bullet Comics, 614 N Porter Ave. in Norman, OK!

How to get ‘Bad-Gift’ Insurance!

Thursday, December 1, 2022

As we have done many times in the holiday season, we are offering our regular customers a chance to do their Christmas and holiday shopping with Speeding Bullet — and get themselves some presents! We (somewhat jokingly) call it “Bad Gift Insurance.”
Do your Christmas shopping at Speeding Bullet, or just buy comics like you do every week. With every $50 purchase, we’ll give you a 30% off coupon that you can use on any one item you choose Dec. 28-31.
That means you have four shopping days the week after Christmas to get what you really wanted!
Of course, if your loved ones are already shopping for you at Speeding Bullet, you win big time, because you can combine those 30% off coupons with your Speeding Bullet gift certificates — available in any denomination!
“Bad-Gift” Insurance is available through Dec. 24. You can collect as many 30% off coupons as you like, but you may only redeem one coupon per item.

 

Remembering JDF

Sunday, November 27, 2022

Speeding Bullet was saddened to hear of the passing of “Power Rangers” star Jason David Frank, who died on Nov. 19.
JDF was best known for his multiple roles on “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers,” including the original Green Ranger. In recent years, he connected with Power Ranger fans around the globe, signing at conventions, comic stores, and events.
Jason David Frank visited Speeding Bullet Comics on four occasions, including three extremely well-attended public signings.
Annette shared the following thoughts:

Jason David Frank, the world’s Green Power Ranger, was such a kind, gregarious person. We loved hosting him in the shop. During his signings, I helped direct the line of fans who came from all over to see him, and he NEVER disappointed, giving each one his authentic attention, swapping stories, signing books and exchanging gifts. We are very sad today to hear of his passing and are sending love to his family and fellow fans.

We had great experiences with JDF and will miss him.
