MA – The Kitchen Signing

000-mdoyle-hb

Local creator Ming Doyle appears at Hub Comics in Union Square on Wednesday December 9, 2015 from 6:00 till 8:00 PM to sign the collected edition of THE KITCHEN!

About THE KITCHEN:
New York City, late 1970s. Times Square is a haven for sex and drugs. The city teeters on the verge of bankruptcy, while blackouts can strike at any moment. This is the world of THE KITCHEN.

The Irish gangs of Hell’s Kitchen rule the neighborhood, bringing terror to the streets and doing the dirty work for the Italian Mafia. Jimmy Brennan and his crew were the hardest bastards in the Kitchen, but after they’re all put in prison, their wives – Kath, Raven and Angie – decide to keep running their rackets. And once they get a taste of the fast life and easy money, it won’t be easy to stop.

THE KITCHEN takes one of the most popular genres in entertainment and, like The Sopranos, reimagines it for a new generation to present a classic gangster story told from a fresh point of view.

Written by talented newcomer Ollie Masters with stunning art by Ming Doyle (CONSTANTINE: THE HELLBLAZER, Quantum & Woody, Guardians of the Galaxy, Mara) and killer covers by Becky Cloonan (GOTHAM ACADEMY, Killjoys, DEMO), THE KITCHEN is not to be missed.

MA – Robot God Akamatsu

00-robot_god_akamatsu

Author James Biggie and artist Frankie Washington speak about their graphic novel Robot God Akamatsu at the Brighton Public Library on Thursday November 12, 2015 at 6:30 PM.

Robot God Akamatsu is a homage to the Super Robot genre of the late 1970s and early 1980s, which helped to shape the imagination of an entire generation. RGA is about the relationship between a father and his estranged son, as well as the abuse of power and how far some are willing to go to see their goals met. It is a little bit Godzilla, a tad bit of Force Five, and a mighty rocket punch of the Shogun Warriors. All are welcome!

Sponsored by the Friends of the Brighton Library.
