About the book:
There is an imbalance in the universe. And, since his latest return from oblivion, Thanos himself feels… incomplete. Now the so-called Mad Titan would put both wrongs right. A pilgrimage to Death’s dark domain, and the revelatory waters of the Infinity Well, leads Thanos on a new quest, with a once sworn enemy at his side. A crusade that will bring confrontation with the Silver Surfer and the galaxy’s mightiest heroes, the Annihilators. An odyssey that will change everything. Cosmic maestro Jim Starlin returns to his signature character in a tale of death and rebirth that will transform the Marvel Universe once more!

WA – Seconds Signing

blom-wa7192014

Cartoonist Bryan Lee O’Malley appears at the Town Hall on Saturday July 19th at 6:30 pm for a signing of his new graphic novel Seconds.

Press Release:

This edition of Verse Chapter Verse features an author Q&A with Canadian cartoonist Bryan Lee O’Malley, sandwiched between the musical stylings of Seattle-based Tacocat. Magic mushrooms, second chances, and best intentions all surface in O’Malley’s newest work. Seconds: A Graphic Novel follows the journey of chef Katie, her restaurant-related business exploits, ex-boyfriend, and what it means to start over. The event is presented as part of Verse Chapter Verse, The Stranger’s readings-and-music series, with books editor Paul Constant. The Q&A will take place between brief Tacocat sets — a palindrome, a foursome, and a “pop-punk-pop” band. O’Malley is the author of New York Times bestselling Scott Pilgrim series.

Presented by: Town Hall and The Stranger, in partnership with University Book Store, as part of the Arts & Culture series. Sponsored by City Arts.
Tickets: $5.
Town Hall Member Benefits: Priority seating, discounted onsite book sales.
Doors open: 6:30 pm

Signing note: Signings will be limited so that any attendees can get 1 copy of Seconds signed plus 1 other item (including books/comics by the author, and the Scott Pilgrim DVD. No toys, shirts, bags, body parts, or other memorabilia). If a fan doesn’t have a copy of Seconds, then they only get 1 item signed. One item per person will be personalized — the second item will get a signature only. Pictures in line are okay, but no posed photos.
