IL – King Baby Signing

000000000000000_beaton_king-babyAuthor/Illustrator Kate Beaton appears at Anderson’s Bookshop on Wednesday, September 21, 2016 at 7:00 PM!

All hail King Baby! He greets his adoring public with giggles and wiggles and coos, posing for photos and allowing hugs and kisses. But this royal ruler also has many demands, and when his subjects can’t quite keep up, King Baby takes matters into his own tiny hands.

Created by Kate Beaton, author of The Princess and the Pony and #1 New York Times bestsellers Hark A Vagrant and Step Aside, Pops, this modern, funny, and (let’s be honest) realistic take on life with a new baby is the perfect gift for anyone with an adorable little monarch in their world.

ARMY OF DARKNESS: ASH FOR PRESIDENT ONE-SHOT
(W) Elliot Serrano (A) Diego Galindo (CA) Elliot Fernandez
He’s faced off against demons in Hell. He’s battled the dead in the future. He’s even combated the armies of darkness in space. But Ash Williams has never gone up against evil in an arena like this: the political arena! From the writer who brought you “Hail to the Queen, Baby” and “Ash Saves Obama” comes the off-beat adventure that answers the question: “What if Ash Williams ran for President of the United States?” When the Necronomicon Ex Mortis gives him a cryptic message, Ash Williams enlists the help of a beautiful psychic to help him track down the agent of the “Great Darkness”, an evil so great that it threatens both humankind and the demon realm. But what happens when the search for truth takes Ash on a trail that he never expected… the campaign trail?
