NYC – My Pretty Vampire Launch Party

Katie Skelly appears alongside Gary Panter in conversation with Nicole Rudick at Strand Book Store on Thursday, July 27th at 7:00 PM.

Press Release:

Celebrate the release of Brooklyn’s own Katie Skelly’s brand-new comic, My Pretty Vampire, with a conversation about influence and its aftermath.

Clover the vampire yearns for the days before she became a creature of the night. She misses excitement, adventure, and the occasional stroll in the sun. Her brother, Marcel, forces her to be a shut-in, claiming that it is to keep her safe from those who would harm her in the outside world. However, just because Clover lacks a soul, doesn’t mean she’s lost her innate curiosity. After she plots her escape, she hopes to have a wild, marvelous and sensual journey befitting of adventurous nature.

Katie will be joined in conversation by fellow cartoonist Gary Panter, whose new book, Songy of Paradise, is a wild and wooly “cover” of John Milton’s Paradise Lost, starring a hillbilly on a vision quest. They’ll discuss growing into and out of your biggest influence with the Paris Review’s Nicole Rudick.

Admission Options: Buy a copy of My Pretty Vampire or a $15 Strand gift card to attend. Please note that payment is required for all online event orders at the time of checkout. The event will be located in the Strand’s 3rd floor Rare Book Room at our store at 828 Broadway at 12th Street.

Bruce makes his triumphant return from where he left off in “If Chins Could Kill” with further hilarious, gut-wrenchingly honest confessions. Bruce brings us through his life in the decade since his first memoir and his roles as varied as they are numerous—from his roles in the Spider-Man movies to his self-referential “My Name is Bruce” to his role on #1 show “Burn Notice” and his new STARZ hit series “Ash vs Evil Dead.” “Hail to the Chin” will be bursting with pictures and the signature humor that Bruce brought to “If Chins Could Kill” and will be devoured by his legions of fans across the country.

OR – One More Year Launch Party

Press Release:

Floating World Comics is proud to host a release party and live performance with Simon Hanselmann on Thursday, August 3rd at 6:00 PM to celebrate the release of his new book One More Year. We will also co-publish a new broadsheet newspaper featuring Simon’s latest paintings which will exclusively debut at this event.

As a genderqueer immigrant living in Trump’s America, Simon Hanselmann has a lot to say about making controversial social commentary art in our current political climate. More than his previous two New York Times bestselling graphic novels, One More Year dives deeper into body dysmorphia, transphobia, mental illness, and addiction.

Megg the witch, Mogg the cat, and their friends Owl and Werewolf Jones are imbued with far more pathos and depth than seems plausible given the stock comic premise — drugged-out, slacker roommates. Depressing, hilarious, endlessly relatable, and exceedingly human — despite being about a witch, a cat, and an anthropomorphic owl — One More Year continues to give more substance to the characters and personalities of its protagonists in ways that never fail to surprise, delight, and horrify.
