NYC – DMC #1 Signing http://www.conventionscene.com/2014/10/28/nyc-dmc-1-signing/ http://www.conventionscene.com/2014/10/28/nyc-dmc-1-signing/#comments Tue, 28 Oct 2014 15:03:29 +0000 http://www.conventionscene.com/?p=60652 dmc-nyc

Meet legendary Hip Hop artist Darryl “DMC” McDaniels at Midtown Comics Downtown on Thursday, November 6th at 6:30 pm for a signing of DMC Vol 1, the first collection from Darryl Makes Comics

It’s 1985 in New York City. Wildstyle graffiti covers subway cars as. B-boys break and spin in playgrounds and on street corners. Koch is mayor. Drugs and crime rule the streets. A terrifying plague is brewing in the shadows. 

However, in this 1985, Darryl McDaniels (Run DMC) never rocks the mic to become one of hip-hop’s most enduring icons. Instead, he dons his tracksuit and Adidas sneakers to defend the city’s marginalized citizens against super villain and super hero alike. DMC, the inaugural title from Darryl Makes Comics, imagines an alternate history that blends traditional comic book storytelling with the pressures and anxieties of 1980s NYC, and explores how we got to where we are now. DMC is a superhero for those who need one most.

Purchase of DMC Vol. 1 required to attend.

RSVP on Facebook!

OR – Lowriders In Space Signing http://www.conventionscene.com/2014/10/28/lowriders-space-signing/ http://www.conventionscene.com/2014/10/28/lowriders-space-signing/#comments Tue, 28 Oct 2014 14:56:30 +0000 http://www.conventionscene.com/?p=60650 Lis

Author/Librarian Cathy Camper appears at Cosmic Monkey Comics to sign copies of her new graphic novel Lowriders In Space on Wednesday November 5th from 5:00-7:00 PM.

Lupe Impala, El Chavo Flapjack, and Elirio Malaria love working with cars. You name it, they can fix it. But the team’s favorite cars of all are lowriders—cars that hip and hop, dip and drop, go low and slow, bajito y suavecito. The stars align when a contest for the best car around offers a prize of a trunkful of cash—just what the team needs to open their own shop! ¡Ay chihuahua! What will it take to transform a junker into the best car in the universe? Striking, unparalleled art from debut illustrator Raul the Third recalls ballpoint-pen-and-Sharpie desk-drawn doodles, while the story is sketched with Spanish, inked with science facts, and colored with true friendship. With a glossary at the back to provide definitions for Spanish and science terms, this delightful book will educate and entertain in equal measure.
