San Diego Comic-Con International officially opens on July 24, but for Triangle residents unable or unwilling to travel 3,000 miles to stand in line with thousands of other fans, there are a number of comic-related events coming up in the Triangle, ranging from visits from top creators to superheroes coming to “life” on stage. One of the most surprising events comes on Saturday, July 12, when Chapel Hill Comics owner Andrew Neal says goodbye to retail with the store’s self-proclaimed “Greatest Signing of All Time,” featuring creators Jim Rugg (Street Angel, the comic book version of TV’s Adventure Time), Tom Scioli (Transformers vs. G.I. Joe, Godland), Ed Piskor (Hip-Hop Family Tree) and Chris Pitzer (publisher of AdHouse Books).
