Award-winning publisher BOOM! Studios is excited to announce that comics’ legend George Pérez will be embarking on his first nationwide signing tour to promote his new original series, George Pérez’s Sirens. Pérez will be visiting six different comic shops and three conventions in seven states across the country to meet fans and sign copies of his first original comic book series in over a decade. Appearing alongside the luminary creator at several of the events will be the real-life friends and fans who inspired the Sirens themselves.
As an intergalactic force enslaves planets across the galaxy, the legendary team known only as the Sirens must reunite to save the galaxy—but is that even possible when the Sirens themselves don’t even remember who they are? And the rest of the universe only remembers them as…villains? A six-issue bi-monthly miniseries featuring your new favorite comic book team, written and drawn by the master himself, George Pérez (Wonder Woman, JLA Vs. Avengers) begins his greatest story yet.
“This is gonna be so much fun,” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “George has never gone on a signing tour before, so this a really unique opportunity for his fan base. Spanning the course of two full weeks, George will be visiting numerous comic shops and conventions, meeting fans from all over the country, and introducing them to his newest work, Sirens. A huge thanks goes out to all the retailers and convention organizers that made this possible. And of course, the biggest thanks of all goes out to George for agreeing to pack up and travel all over the U.S.!”

(W/A/CA) Tom Neely
The collected graphic novel of the greatest love story ever told features twenty short stories about the domestic life of “Henry” and “Glenn” as well as their neighbors “Daryl” and “John.” Digging beneath Glenn’s bricks in the front yard, Henry uncovers Glenn’s mother, freshly unearthed, moves in with him and Henry. Without giving too much away, Glenn’s mommy issues come to the surface as she critiques his art, replaces his wardrobe, scrubs their dungeon, and recalls his childhood. Henry and Glenn go to therapy together, battle an evil cult in the forest, and profess their love between dealing with repeated jealousy and normal relationship problems. It’s a true testament to the power of love to overcome even the biggest, manliest egos of our time.

Bill Willingham, the man who created Fables, one of the most loved and revered titles to hit comic book stands since Sandman, is coming to our area.
On September 4, Willingham will be at Captain Blue Hen Comics in Newark, Delaware from 5:00 to 8:00 PM. He will be meeting with fans, signing comics and talking about the quickly approaching finale of Fables, which is scheduled to come to a conclusion with issue #150.
As everyone knows, Willingham’s career has encompassed more than just Fables. He was also the creator and writer of the fondly remembered book The Elementals as well as the DC Comics series Shadowpact and Day of Vengeance. But it’s safe to say everyone will be talking about Fables, the long running critical and commercial hit that has enchanted fans since the first issue. With the series coming to a close, here is your chance to tell Willingham what the series has meant to you and why it’s so special.
Captain Blue Hen Comics will have plenty of Fables books on hand as well as back issues and everything a comic book fan would need or want. So make your plans now and get your books ready. Bill Willingham doesn’t make it to the east coast that often, and who knows when it might happen again once Fables ends.
