nyc-alyssa-milano

Press Release:

Midtown Comics Downtown welcomes actress and writer Alyssa Milano for a signing of her new book, Hacktivist, on Saturday, September 12th from 2:00 – 3:00 PM!

Widely known for her roles on Who’s The Boss, Melrose Place, and Charmed, Alyssa Milano will be signing Hacktivist #1-#2, as well as the Hacktivist Vol 1 Graphic Novel! Please note that no other merchandise will be permitted to get signed.

WHY WE LOVE IT: Alyssa Milano is a successful actress, producer, entrepreneur, and activist, so we weren’t really surprised when she also brought us an amazing comic book idea. Alyssa’s love of activism and the world of emerging
technology only added to our love of the project.

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: A story about friendship and freedom in a time of war, stunningly illustrated by fan-favorite artist Marcus To (Cyborg 009, New Warriors, Red Robin) and Eisner Award-nominated colorist Ian Herring (Jim Henson’s Tale of Sand, Cyborg 009, Ms. Marvel).

WHAT IT’S ABOUT: Ed Hiccox and Nate Graft are the young, brilliant cofounders of YourLife, a social networking company that has changed the way the world connects with each other. But they are also ‘sve_Urs3lf,’ the largest black-hat hacking group on the planet. When their operation is discovered by the U.S. Government, and their company is taken over by military contracts and the CIA, Ed and Nate must face the real world beyond the code and choose between friendship and what they believe to be right.

Purchase required, limit of two items per person.

Press Release:

KS – Archmage Launch Party

KS-RA-Salvatore-Banner

Press Release:

Watermark Books & Cafe hosts author R.A. Salvatore at Abode Venue for a reading and signing of Archmage on Monday, August 31 at 6:00 p.m. Doors open at 5:00 p.m., and the event will also include a cash bar. Abode Venue is located at 1330 E. Douglas Ave., Wichita, KS, 67214.

Tickets for the event are $28.95+tax and include a copy of the new book Archmage. The book officially comes out on Tuesday, September 1, but it will be available for pick-up at the event on Monday night. Order your ticket NOW to pre-order a copy of Salvatore’s newest Drizzt book! Tickets can be ordered online by clicking the ticket link or by calling Watermark Books & Cafe at 316.682.1181.

The pall that had descended over the North is gone, and a new day has dawned on a victorious Mithral Hall, but no matter how bright things seem on the surface, Drizzt and his companions know that what lurks just under their feet remains steeped in evil and charged with unimaginable power.

The dark elves of Menzoberranzan, including the powerful Archmage Gromph, aren’t done with Drizzt yet. And consumed by their own power struggles, feeling backed into a corner, the drow may just be desperate enough to call on demonic forces from the deepest reaches of the Abyss, and unleash a disaster even the Underdark could never have prepared for. Archmage has everything Drizzt’s fans crave: action, adventure, characters that resonate with equal measures of warrior spirit and deep compassion, and no shortage of wicked dark elves.
