Mur Lafferty signs at Chapel Hill Comics on Saturday, June 1, 2013 from 7:00 until 9:00 pm!
Chapel Hill Comics is proud to announce that as part of our 10th/35th Anniversary Festivities, we will host a release party for Mur Lafferty’s new book, The Shambling Guide to New York City! The event will be from 7pm until 9pm on Saturday, June 1. What’s the book about? Here you go:
A travel writer takes a job with a shady publishing company in New York, only to find that she must write a guide to the city – for the undead!
Because of the disaster that was her last job, Zoe is searching for a fresh start as a travel book editor in the tourist-centric New York City. After stumbling across a seemingly perfect position though, Zoe is blocked at every turn because of the one thing she can’t take off her resume — human.
Not to be put off by anything — especially not her blood drinking boss or death goddess coworker — Zoe delves deep into the monster world. But her job turns deadly when the careful balance between human and monsters starts to crumble — with Zoe right in the middle.
We’ll have copies of the book on hand, and we’d love you to come down and meet the author! This is a prose novel, not a comic, though it does sport a fantastic cover by noted comic artist Jamie McKelvie!
Plus, check it out: the book is already getting good reviews! Publisher’s Weekly listed The Shambling Guide as one of the best summer books of 2013!
Mur Lafferty is an author and podcaster based in Durham, NC. She is the host of the I Should Be Writing podcast and a two time John W. Campbell Award nominee.

Frank J. Barbiere and Chris Mooneyham sign at Third Eye Comics on Saturday, May 25, 2013 from 11:00 am until 1:00 pm!
FIRST 25 IN LINE RECEIVE A VERY SPECIAL FREE GIFT LIMITED STRICTLY TO THIS EVENT!
Folks — we’re proud to announce this signing for what is sure to be one of the most popular new IMAGE COMICS titles to release this year. The artwork, the storytelling, the premise.. it’s all top notch; we got the same kind of goosebumps reading the previews of this one that we did when we first thumbed through books like PETER PANZERFAUST, MANHATTAN PROJECTS, REVIVAL and BEDLAM. This fantastic new series from rising stars FRANK J. BARBIERE & CHRIS MOONEYHAM kicks off a bold new era of PULP ADVENTURE COMICS!
After a tragic encounter with an artifact known as the DREAMSTONE, infamous treasure hunter FABIAN GRAY was possessed by five literary ghosts and has been granted access to their unique abilities.
Now, we join creators Frank J. Barbiere and Chris Mooneyham for the most exciting debut of 2013 as they introduce you to a unique world full of action, black magic, exotic locales, and literary allusion!
Folks: this book takes so many of our favorite things, and rolls them into one slick package. There’s the occult intrigue of series like HELLBOY and THE SANDMAN. There’s the pulpy treasure hunter aspect that’s not far removed from the UNCHARTED games. There’s the dynamic of a guy carrying around five ghosts with him; and being able to access their unique abilities.
Five Ghosts: the Haunting of Fabian Gray is a MUST-READ, Third Eye Faithful, and we cannot recommend it enough.
We’ll be having a very special release party signing with both Frank and Chris on Saturday May 25th, which is the week that the third issue of FIVE GHOSTS arrives.
Make sure to snag your copies of issues 1 & 2, when the series begins in March, so you can bring them by to get signed by Frank & Chris this May!
