Colin Quinn appears at Brookline Booksmith on Saturday, June 13, 2015 at 6:00 pm to sign The Coloring Book: A Comedian Solves Race Relations in America.
Former Saturday Night Live “Weekend Update” host and legendary stand-up Colin Quinn has noticed a trend during his decades on the road; America’s increasing political correctness and sensitivity has us tiptoeing around the subjects of race and ethnicity. Colin wants to know: What are we all so afraid of? In The Coloring Book, Colin tackles the issue head-on.
This event will take place at Brookline Booksmith and requires tickets. Tickets are available online now. Tickets are $26 and include one copy of The Coloring Book. A free signing will follow the reading.

Celebrate the release of the WUVABLE OAF HC on June 4th from 6-8 PM with an art exhibit and book signing with Ed Luce.
Like Sex and the City but with adorable, ex-wrestler hairy gay men (or bears), Wuvable Oaf is Luce’s debut graphic novel. This book fills a romance comics hole by portraying a likeable gay male character that is both fully realized and relatable. Mostly playful, but sometimes serious, Wuvable Oaf captures the levity of loneliness. Luce delivers a rom-com that would leave Zack Galifianakis and Zooey Deschanel feuding over who got to play Oaf in a hypothetical movie adaptation.
Oaf is a large, hirsute, scary-looking ex-wrestler who lives in San Francisco with his adorable kitties, and listens to a lot of Morrissey. The book follows Oaf’s search for love in the big city, especially his pursuit of Eiffel, the lead singer of the black metal/queercore/progressive disco grindcore band Ejaculoid. Luce weaves friends, associates, enemies, ex-lovers, and the pasts of both men into the story of their courtship. Like Scott Pilgrim, Love and Rockets, and Archie, Wuvable Oaf explores the joys and pains of romantic conquests, set against the backdrop of the San Francisco scene. After decades of comics about boy-loves-girl, Luce finally gives readers of all orientations some insight into man-loves-man. Oaf’s silly, sweet, and sometimes sexy stories will win over everyone’s heart.
Customers who buy the book get a free signed Bookplate designed by Ed Luce especially for this event!

Chuck Palahniuk speaks on Tuesday, May 26, 2015 at 7:30 PM! Presented by Books & Books in collaboration with The Center for Writing & Literature at Miami Dade College and Tate’s Comics. RSVP on Facebook!
You must purchase a voucher ($33) at Books & Books to attend this event or online at the link. In exchange for your purchase of this voucher you will receive (1) one autographed copy of MAKE SOMETHING UP: STORIES YOU CAN’T UNREAD plus a signed copy of the first comic edition of FIGHT CLUB 2.
The voucher also serves as your entry for (1) one person to Chuck Palahniuk’s talk on May 26.
Make Something Up will be published on May 26, so this is the launch event! Please plan to claim your copy of the books at the event on May 26. All books will have then been pre-signed by Chuck. There will be no book signing to follow his talk.
You must show your voucher and attached receipt to claim your book and entrance to the event, so if you purchase one in the store please remember to bring it with you that day. Books & Books is NOT responsible for lost or stolen vouchers. For online orders, your voucher will be waiting for you at the event.
Representing work that spans several years, Make Something Up is a compilation of 21 stories and one novella (some previously published, some not) that will disturb and delight. The absurdity of both life and death are on full display; in “Zombies,” the best and brightest of a high school prep school become tragically addicted to the latest drug craze: electric shocks from cardiac defibrillators. In “Knock, Knock,” a son hopes to tell one last off-color joke to a father in his final moments, while in “Tunnel of Love,” a massage therapist runs the curious practice of providing ‘relief’ to dying clients. And in “Expedition,” fans will be thrilled to find to see a side of Tyler Durden never seen before in a precusor story to Fight Club. Funny, caustic, bizarre, poignant; these stories represent everything readers have come to love and expect from Chuck Palahniuk.

Who is Neal Adams? Neal Adams is a towering figure in the world of comic book creation and art. Neal has had legendary ‘runs’ on Batman, X-Men, Green Lantern/Green Arrow, and Deadman. Adams rescued Batman from the campy nostalgia of the television show, and re-fitted him in his present incarnation as an “Avenger of the Night.” When people say ‘modern Batman,’ they mean Neal Adams’ Batman. His run on Batman led directly to the new, more realistic incarnation in “Batman Returns” movie, which featured the character he created, Ra’s Al Ghul. Neal just did an 8 page story in Batman Black & White #1. Don’t miss out on picking one up at the store and having Neal sign it.
Neal is currently working on a Superman Series for DC Comics.

Daniel Clowes will make his first Los Angeles appearance in several years at Meltdown Comics on June 5th to celebrate the release of The Complete Eightball, a two-volume collection of the influential and iconic comic book series, from Fantagraphics Books.
On Friday, June 5th, from 6-10 PM, Meltdown will be opening its Los Angeles doors to fans new and decades strong for a night complete with prizes, a book signing, costume contest, and an interview between Clowes and Mark Frauenfelder from Boing Boing.
Creator of touchstone stories such as “Ghost World,” “Art School Confidential,” and “Like a Velvet Glove Cast in Iron,” Daniel Clowes changed the landscape of comics when he began publishing Eightball with Fantagraphics Books in 1989. To commemorate the 25th anniversary of its release, and celebrate the future, the biggest comic book retailer in California, Meltdown Comics, is pulling all the stops for this one-night-only engagement. Meltdown and Clowes’s relationship dates back over 20 years, when Clowes created the venerable Meltdown mascot, Mel, in the early days of the store.
From Associate Publisher, Eric Reynolds says, “It was literally unfathomable for us to consider any Daniel Clowes / Complete Eightball event schedule that didn’t include Meltdown Comics. I don’t know if there’s a bookseller in the country that has done more to promote Eightball and the work of Daniel Clowes over the past two decades. This is going to be a barnburner.”
