Red Pegasus Comics
has quickly become a haven and hangout for up-and-coming area writers, artists and illustrators, as well as comic book collectors. In addition to carrying comics and graphic novels from publishers such as DC, Marvel, Dark Horse Comics and other indie companies, the shop stocks self-published zines. Gabriel Mendez and Kenneth Denson at Red Pegasus Comics have hosted semi-regular meetups and events for writers and artists covering topics from how to self-publish to how to get started in comics. And in keeping with the shop’s community vibe, Red Pegasus, 208 W. Eighth St., is throwing a party and a monster of a sale from 3 to 8 p.m. Saturday to celebrate turning 3 years old (and to celebrate owner Denson’s birthday), including cake, Noble Rey beer and a special surprise at 7 p.m. Mendez says everything in the store will be discounted by 60 percent during the party.

More than just a typical comic book store,
