NJ – Women’s Empowerment Week Signing

Press Release:

East Side Mags – along with Montclair Center – are celebrating women and everything they do that makes this world amazing! Montclair Center has a whole week of fantastic and empowering events taking place. You can check out all the great events here.

East Side Mags is no different. In fact, we aim to show you how impactful women are in the comics community! And to prove that, we are bringing in some of the most amazing women we could find (and know personally):

Amy Chu is an amazing writer and has skyrocketed to new heights in the comics industry! She’s most recently known for her work on Poison Ivy: The Cycle of Life & Death (the first ever solo Poison Ivy comic series) and her work on KISS comics out through Dynamite Entertainment. She’s also worked on titles for publishers like DC Comics, Marvel, IDW, Valiant and Dynamite. Not only that, but she’s the co-founder of Alpha Girl Comics!

Michelle Delecki paints and draws beautifully! Her work is gorgeous and her attention to detail is unparalleled. She’s a painter, illustrator and a guitarist. She loves 80s metal, violent 80s and 90s action movies with car chases and explosions and loves to laugh! She most recently worked on an indie title called Axcend which was about video games intersecting and affecting the real world! An amazing tale and you can check out her beautiful work here!

Brigid Allanson is a graduate of the Kubert School in Dover, NJ and a seriously talented artist! She works as a freelance artist and graphic designer AND teaches East Side Mags’ own Learn to Draw Comics Class on Saturday mornings! Brigid’s work includes YIIK – an indie video game – as well as a Kickstarter for an upcoming video game slated to be available on PC, PS4, PSVita and Unity called Hush-Hush 229. She’s brought her talent to conventions all over including but not limited to Garden State Comic Fest, NYC Special Edition and more! You can check out her work here.

The event will take place from 1pm-4pm on Sunday, April 9th. The perfect end to a week of empowering women and a bright future for women everywhere!

NJ – Alec Baldwin Signing

Alec Baldwin appears at Bookends on Wednesday, April 5, 2017 at 6:00 PM to sign his new memoir Nevertheless.

In this candid, fearless memoir, Baldwin transcends his public persona, revealing facets of his life he has long kept private. He introduces readers to the Long Island child who felt burdened by his family’s financial strains and his parents’ unhappy marriage; the Washington, DC, college student preparing for a career in politics; the self-named “Love Taxi” who helped friends solve their romantic problems while neglecting his own; the young soap actor learning from giants of the theatre; the addict who struggles with sobriety; the husband and father who acknowledges his failings and battles to overcome them; and the consummate professional for whom the work is everything.

Alec Baldwin won two Emmys, three Golden Globes, and seven Screen Actors Guild Awards for his portrayal of NBC president Jack Donaghy on the sitcom 30 Rock. His list of film credits includes roles in Beetlejuice, Glengarry Glen Ross, The Departed, and The Cooler, for which he earned an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor. Baldwin recently garnered praise for a certain Presidential impersonation on Saturday Night Live, which he has hosted 16 times. Nevertheless travels behind the public persona to lay bare the facts of his difficult childhood, romantic and familial struggles, and fights against addiction to reveal the fearlessness and drive that have defined his life.
