CA – Shoplifter Signing

shoplifterMichael Cho at the Oakland Diesel Bookstore to discuss and sign his debut graphic novel, Shoplifter, on Monday, September 29th at 7:00 pm. Joining him in conversation will be editor Chip Kidd.

Corinna Parks always imagined writing a successful novel and leading the ideal life of an author. After graduation however, she moved to a big city and took a job at an advertising agency (to pay off her student loans). Somehow, now, she’s worked in the same office for five years, and the only thing she has written is copy. She longs for companionship other than her cat, she’s dissatisfied with her job, and she’s numbed by the monotony of a life experienced through a series of screens. Her only thrill, her way to feel more alive, comes whenever she shoplifts a magazine from the corner store near her apartment. She knows there must be something more to life, but the question is how to find it.

Michael Cho is an artist, designer and illustrator, well known for his inimitable Toronto cityscapes and offbeat superhero illustrations. One of his stories was included in The Best American Comics 2010 and his artwork is showcased in Rabindranath Maharaj’s The Amazing Absorbing Boy. Shoplifter is his first graphic novel. He lives in Toronto.

In this follow up to the Caldecott Honor book Journey, Aaron Becker tells of a king who emerges from a hidden door in a city park, startling two children sheltering from the rain. No sooner does he push a map and some strange objects into their hands than he is captured by hostile forces that whisk him back through the enchanted door.

rm090614

Roman Muradov appaears at Mission: Comics & Art on Saturday, September 6th at 6:00 pm to sign his first graphic novel, (IN A SENSE) LOST & FOUND published by No Brow Press!

“The world of (In a Sense) Lost and Found is one that is immersed in surrealistic wordplay and fantastic places beyond what we’ve trained ourselves to see. It’s an atmospheric fable about what it means to grow up in a world where innocence is a tangible object, and how that innocence can be lost, found, mistreated, and commodified. Muradov’s crisp compositions and delicate art style are equal parts playful and haunting, creating an enchanting world of shadowy places in between the known, while illuminating the lives of the people who live there.”

She has received numerous accolades for her work, with her 2010 novel Zoo City winning the Arthur C. Clarke award for best novel in 2011. Lauren delivers yet again with Broken Monsters, a tale of “broken cities, broken dreams, and broken people” that begins with Detective Gabriella Versado finding a fused-together body composed of equal parts boy and deer.
