UK – Ordinary Signing

OrdinaryRob Williams, Ben Oliver, and Simon Gurr appears for a signing of ORDINARY, the graphic novel, and AUTHORITY, HUMAN ON THE INSIDE at the Forbidden Planet Bristol Megastore on Saturday 1st November from 1 – 2pm.

For ORDINARY, Imagine a world where everyone has superpowers. That is, except you. You are the same old turgid, miserable, lonely loser, you’ve always been. What’s needed is a return to normality, to devolve back from Superhuman to just human – and there’s only one man for the job: down-at-heel, divorced New York plumber, Michael Fisher.

The AUTHORITY, Earth’s last of defence, have performed God-like acts in their defence of the planet, whether defeating ancient gods or fending off inter-dimensional invasion forces. But these brave acts haven’t always endeared them to many in power, particularly in the United States. The President, tired of being embarrassed by what he views as a bunch of costumed freaks, sets a plan in motion that could very well destroy the Authority from the inside — a plan so cunning and unexpected, it’ll shake the Authority to their very core.

MA – WORDLESS!

ica

Art Spiegelman and Phillip Johnston appear at the ICA to perform WORDLESS! on Sunday, October 26th at 3:00 PM and 8:00 PM!

Press Release:

Art Spiegelman radically changed the public perception of comics with his Pulitzer Prize–winning masterpiece MAUS, earning the designation “father of the graphic novel.” In WORDLESS!—a genre-bending performance he calls a “hybrid slide talk, standup routine, academic lecture, and full-scale concert by Philip Johnston”—he takes viewers on a punchy personal tour of wordless novels by early-20th-century masters Frans Masereel, Lynd Ward, and Milt Gross. Accompanied by Johnston’s score of “rollicking, klezmer-inflected, vaudeville jazz” (Paris Review), WORDLESS! also features “Shaping Thought,” a new work Spiegelman drew specifically for the project.

CA – Archibald’s Next Big Thing Signing

thale

Tony Hale (Veep, Arrested Development) appears at Vroman’s Bookstore to present and sign Archibald’s Next Big Thing on Sunday October 26, 2014 at 1:00 PM!

Press Release:

Archibald’s Next Big Thing is the extraordinary adventure of an extra-ordinary chicken named Archibald Struer. His three brothers and one sister have each found their “Big Thing” (including a brother chicken who impressively grows human hair) and the only Big Thing Archibald has planned is what he’s eating for lunch. This all changes when he receives a mysterious blue card that reads “YOUR BIG THING IS HERE!” So, accompanied by a friendly bee named BEE, Archibald takes the card and heads out on a fantastic journey in hopes of finding his NEXT BIG THING. It’s a story that reminds us that, while looking for the next big thing isn’t a bad thing, we should always remember that big and beautiful things are all around us…right NOW.
