Primordial #1 Now at Current Comics

Posted on September 15th, 2021 by Current Comics

Current Comics now has the first issue of Primordial on our shelves at 400 Lighthouse Avenue in Monterey and on our website! Created by award-winning writer Jeff Lemire (Sweet Tooth, Black Hammer) and artist Andrea Sorrentino (Gideon Falls, Old Man Logan), this 6-issue miniseries mixes deep space sci-fi, alternate history, and noir thriller and we are really excited about it.

Publisher's description: "In 1957, the USSR launched the dog, Laika, into Earth's orbit. Two years later, the USA responded with two monkeys, Able and Baker. These animals never returned. But, unbeknownst to everyone, they did not die in orbit…they were taken. And now they are coming home."

In a recent blog post on their website, Epicenter Cycling makes the case for why you should purchase your bike from a local shop instead of online. We agree!

1. You can demo the bike first before buying.

2. Local bike shops offer unbeatable customer service.

3. Local shops offer professional set-up and maintenance.

4. Local shops will only sell stable brands committed to high-quality products that are popular with cyclists.

5. You can feel good about supporting a local business, your local economy, and your community.

Read the entire post and all the supporting points here. And then head on over to Epicenter Cycling at 230 Lighthouse Avenue in Monterey to look around and talk with their great staff.

Om Studios announces our Spring 2022 Yoga Teacher Training, held February - June. Om Studios Teacher Training guides you in exploring the boundless world of yoga while learning to skillfully teach the content most meaningful to you. Lindsay Wetterau and Lynn Cordell combine their decades of experience and diverse training backgrounds to provide a program that teaches you to learn both the science of the body and the philosophy of the spirit.

During the 12 weekend sessions, Lindsay and Lynn will emphasize the three main focal points of the course: alignment, anatomy, and philosophy. However, you will be encouraged to take from the material what is most meaningful to you and craft a style of teaching that is authentically your own.
