Final Hellbound Volume Debuts at MICE 2014

hbvPress Release:

The Boston Comics Roundtable, in conjunction with River Bird Comics, is pleased to announce the publication of Hellbound V: End of Comics. Aptly themed, this will be the final installment in a series of original horror comics anthologies from some of Boston’s most celebrated creators. No fear or phobia will be left unprovoked. 

Debuting on October 4th at the fifth annual Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo (MICE), Hellbound V will also be available at select local comics shops and conventions. This limited edition, 9 by 5 inch, two-tone Risograph printed run, geared toward “Mature Readers”, will feature seven stories and two fold-out pages, boasting a roster of familiar names and new contributors, alike. 

Hellbound series creator Roho will resume his role as designer and publisher. Stephen Cartisano, who has had a hand in every Hellbound release since the New England Art Award nominated Volume II: Box of Evil, returns as Editor. Returning contributors include Dan Mazur (Comics: A Global History), Ellen T. Crenshaw (Nobodies Volume II, Womanthology), Alison Burke and Tara Harris (A.R.R.O.), Patrick FlahertyE.J. Barnes (Tales of the Ling, An Invitation to the World of Luisa Felix), and Clayton McCormack (Dead Meat, Heavy Metal Magazine). Joining them for the first time on this volume are Gary Bonesteel (Killer Ink Comics), Ben Doane (Subcultures), and Brenton Barnes (Bartkira, Mister Reusch’s Black and White Illustration Book).

The Hellbound series has received much critical acclaim, having grown “increasingly stylish in presentation,” according to Rob Clough of High-Low. Katy England, of The Maine Edge, deemed Volume IV: GULP! to be “well worth adding to any collection,” while Brigid Alverson of Robot 6 marveled at the “impressive craftsmanship” contained within its pages. 

Featuring illustrations by Dan Moynihan (Nickelodeon Magazine, Heeby Jeeby Comix), and up and comer Jerel Dye (Little Nemo: Dream Another Dream, Pigs Might Fly), Hellbound V: End of Comics promises to end the series with a bang… and perhaps some whimpering, too.

CA – The Shadow Hero Signing

gly-shero-ca

Gene Luen Yang appears at Bookshop Santa Cruz on Monday September 29, 2014 at 6:30 pm!

Press Release:

In the golden ago of comics in the 1940s, a legend was born: the Green Turtle. But this mysterious masked crusader was hiding something more than your run-of-the-mill secret identity—The Green Turtle was the first Asian American superhero. The original Green Turtle comic only had a short run, but now Gene Luen Yang has revived the character, creating an origin story for a forgotten hero.

Hank just wants to enjoy his quiet life running the family grocery store with his father, but his mother wants him to become a superhero, and to clean up their Chinatown neighborhood! With artwork by Sonny Liew, this dazzling, funny comics adventure for teens is a new spin on the long, rich tradition of American comics lore.

Gene Luen Yang is best known for his popular comic adaptation of Avatar: The Last Airbender; the graphic novel diptych Boxers & Saints, a narrative of China’s Boxer Rebellion; and graphic novel American Born Chinese, which is now in print in over ten languages and was a National Book Award finalist and winner of the Printz Award. American Born Chinese was celebrated as a unique presence in comic and graphic novels, a voice of Asian American youth struggling with fitting into America culture, a bold expression about Yang’s perspective on the Asian-American experience (especially for kids) and his understanding of his own ethnic heritage. Yang was also awarded the San Francisco Chronicle’s Best Book of the Year and The Chinese American Librarians Association Best Book Award.

He lives in Oakland, California. We’re pleased to welcome Yang for a reading, discussion, and signing.

TX – Neal Adams Signing

nealadams-tx

Meet Comics Legend Neal Adams appears at Dragon’s Lair on Wednesday, September 24th from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM!

First autograph is FREE! (Additional autographs are $10 each) Portfolios, Art Prints, Books and Sketches will be available for purchase!

Who is Neal Adams? Neal Adams is a towering figure in the world of comic book creation and art. Neal has had legendary ‘runs’ on Batman, X-Men, Green Lantern-Green Arrow and Deadman. Adams rescued Batman from the campy nostalgia of the television show, and re-fitted him in his present incarnation as an “Avenger of the Night.” When people say ‘modern Batman,’ they mean Neal Adams’ Batman! His run on Batman led directly to the new, more realistic incarnation in the film Batman Begins, which featured the character he created, Ras Al Ghul. Neal just did an 8 page story in Batman Black & White #1. Don’t miss out on picking one up at the store and having Neal sign it!

He is also taking on commissions, so now is the time to get a piece of art drawn up by Neal Adams! Email Jason at adams@nealadams.com. Jason will work out characters and prices with you. Maybe get a Batman Black & White Variant blank with a Batman head sketch drawn on it? You can also call Jason at # (212) 869-4170.
