Have you ever yearned for a life at sea? Wondered what it would be like to sail aboard an 18th century vessel? Been perplexed by the confusing nautical terminology in Melville and O’Brian? Join tall ship sailor-turned-cartoonist Lucy Bellwood as she reads from her educational, autobiographical comic series Baggywrinkles. Whether working as a deckhand on the Lady Washington or documenting the restoration of the Charles W. Morgan at Mystic Seaport, her visual insights into life on board historic vessels will illuminate and delight.
About the author: Lucy Bellwood is a cartoonist and illustrator working out of Periscope Studio in Portland, OR. Since 2007 she has been an avid lover of tall ships and sailing, working aboard vessels up and down the West Coast. In 2014 she traveled to Boston to document the 38th voyage of the freshly-restored 1840s wooden whaling ship the Charles W. Morgan. Her work has appeared in Symbolia Magazine, The Nib, Cartozia Tales, and many other venues. You can find her online at lucybellwood.com or on Twitter as @LuBellWoo.

JHU Comic Books is proud to welcome back the mega-talented writer Greg Pak back to our store! He’s done amazing things for years, resuscitating characters, giving new lives to books, reinventing what you thought was possible and making us believe in characters we thought we lost it for.
His run on Action Comics with Aaron Kuder has been stellar, and we all know how awesome his Planet Hulk saga was. He’s made Turok exist in a new and interesting world, as well as given us some great tales with Batman and Superman.
Greg Pak is now bringing his talents back over to Marvel Comics for a new ongoing Storm series, featuring the much beloved, white-haired, African weather goddess.
Come join us for a great signing with Greg and meet a fan favorite legend!
*Purchase of Storm #1 required to participate in signing event.

On a mission to foster goodwill and safeguard the mutant race’s continued existence in her own way, Storm will travel the globe, confronting man and mutant, god and monster and everything in-between. She will overthrow tyrants, quell tsunamis and strive to see her dream for the world realized. She is STORM, a hero like no other….and the skies will tremble at the sight of their namesake.”
