JOE HILL (Locke & Key, Horns) appears at Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore on Thursday, May 26th at 7:00 PM with guest host Chris RyallGet tickets at the link…

Reportedly a synthesis of “the epic scope of The Passage and the emotional impact of The Road,” Joe Hill’s apocalyptic thriller, The Fireman, is “set in a world overtaken by an incurable runaway pathogen that causes death by spontaneous combustion.” Fans of the award-winning author have been impatient to read this novel, spurred on by teaser releases via Entertainment Weekly and other sources.

Chris Ryall, Chief Creative Officer/Editor-in-Chief at IDW Publishing, has worked with Joe on comic works including Locke & Key, Wraith, and The Cape.

This is a numbered event. Numbers for the signing line are free with the purchase of The Fireman from Mysterious Galaxy. Books and tickets will be available for pick-up on Tuesday, May 17, starting at 10 AM!

NYC – Indeh Launch Party

00000000_indeh

Join author and illustrator team Ethan Hawke and Greg Ruth for the release of their new graphic novel INDEH at BookCourt on Wednesday, June 8, 2016 at 7:00 PM.

About INDEH:
The year is 1872. The place, the Apache nations, a region torn apart by decades of war. The people, like Goyahkla, lose his family and everything he loves. After having a vision, the young Goyahkla approaches the Apache leader Cochise, and the entire Apache nation, to lead an attack against the Mexican village of Azripe. It is this wild display of courage that transforms the young brave Goyakhla into the Native American hero Geronimo. But the war wages on. As they battle their enemies, lose loved ones, and desperately cling on to their land and culture, they would utter, “Indeh,” or “the dead.” When it looks like lasting peace has been reached, it seems like the war is over. Or is it?

INDEH captures the deeply rich narrative of two nations at war-as told through the eyes of Naiches and Geronimo-who then try to find peace and forgiveness. INDEH not only paints a picture of some of the most magnificent characters in the history of our country, but it also reveals the spiritual and emotional cost of the Apache Wars. Based on exhaustive research, INDEH offers a remarkable glimpse into the raw themes of cultural differences, the horrors of war, the search for peace, and, ultimately, retribution. The Apache left an indelible mark on our perceptions about the American West, and INDEH shows us why.

Author Bio:

Ethan Hawke is an accomplished actor, screenwriter, film and theatre director, and novelist. He has been nominated for Academy Awards for both acting and writing, a Tony award, and a Drama Desk Award for both acting and directing.

Greg Ruth is a New York Times bestselling author and illustrator of The Lost Boy, and illustrator for Freaks of the Heartland and Conan comics, among others. He lives in Western Massachusetts.
