Martin Lemelman signs on December 29, 2010 at 7:30 pm.
Martin Lemelman’s elegiac and bittersweet graphic memoir Two Cents Plain collects the memories and artifacts of the author’s childhood in Brooklyn. The son of Holocaust survivors, Lemelman grew up in the back of his family’s candy store in Brownsville during the 1950s and ’60s, as the neighborhood, and much of the city, moved into a period of deep decline. In Two Cents Plain, Lemelman pieces together the fragments of his past in an effort to come toterms with a childhood that was marked by struggle both in and outside of the home. But his was not a childhood wholly without its pleasures. Lemelman’s Brooklyn is also the nostalgic place of egg creams and comic books, malteds and novelty toys, where the voices of Brownsville’s denizens—the deli man, the fish man, and the fruit man—all come to vivid life. Two Cents Plain is a wholly unique memoir and a reading experience not soon forgotten.

Rebekah Isaacs and Jon Price sign their new book MAGUS #1 from 12 Gauge Comics at Midtown Comics in New York City on Friday, December 17th, 2010 from 1:00-2:00PM. Rebekah will be doing free sketches for anyone who purchases the book.
MAGUS: After being sealed away for thousands of years, humankind’s innate ability to use magic is accidentally released. Forces of good, evil – and somewhere in between – race against each other to find the reason for the outbreak. Some want to defend its use and save a world thrown into chaos, others aim for less honorable goals. Ben and Darius, both approaching their 18th birthdays, have strong magic welling up inside of them, much stronger than the average person. They rely on each other and a new group of powerful friends, as they fight to carve out a place for themselves in this strange era.
Rebekah Isaacs has had numerous penciling and inking credits with Marvel and DC Comics, including Ms. Marvel and DV8: Gods and Monsters. Her first break into the comics industry came in 2007 with Hack/Slash and Drafted from Devil’s Due. She is currently working on Magus and various things she’s not allowed to talk about yet at Marvel.
Jon Price worked across the board in the entertainment industry in television, film, and video games before discovering a calling for comics writing. Magus is his first published work. When he’s not writing you might find him playing guitar in NYC nerd rock outfit H2AWESOME. Jon and Rebekah live in Queens with their cat, Fantastic Donut.
