CA – Broken Monsters Signing

Lauren Beukes signs at Mysterious Galaxy in San Diego on Tuesday September 16, 2014 at 7:00 pm!

Before she was a best-selling novelist, Lauren Beaukes wore such hats as documentary filmmaker, television showrunner, and graphic novel writer. She has received numerous accolades for her work, with her 2010 novel Zoo City winning the Arthur C. Clarke award for best novel in 2011. Lauren delivers yet again with Broken Monsters, a tale of “broken cities, broken dreams, and broken people” that begins with Detective Gabriella Versado finding a fused-together body composed of equal parts boy and deer. As more and more disturbing bodies are found, Gabriella, her persistent journalist daughter Layla, and a man just trying to keep his homeless family safe, all experience what it’s like to live in forlorn Detroit when monsters of all types come to visit.

CA – Cloaks #1 Launch Party

cloaks

Creator/actor David Henrie and series writer Caleb Monroe (PLANET OF THE APES, STEED & MRS. PEEL, PEANUTS) appear at Collector’s Paradise Wednesday, September 3rd from 6:00 – 8:00 pm to premiere CLOAKS #1 from Boom! Studios!

In the Big Apple, a highly skilled street illusionist named Adam blows the minds of crowds with logic-defying acts, while surreptitiously using his artistry to steal from corrupt Wall Street investment bankers and re-distribute their ill-begotten wealth to those in need. He’s a modern-day Robin Hood, but his travails garner the attention of the local authorities. While evading their pursuit, Adam is confronted by three suits and quickly ascertains that freedom has a cost—in order to maintain his liberty, he must join this clandestine Black Ops organization simply known as CLOAKS.
