NYC – Thrill Me Signing

Author Benjamin Percy appears at Barnes & Noble in conversation with writer Jonathan Lee, author of High Dive, on Thursday March 2, 2017 at 7:00 PM. His work challenges the notion that literary and genre fiction are mutually exclusive. He looks to disparate sources to discover how contemporary writers engage issues of plot, suspense, momentum and the speculative, as well as character, setting and dialogue, all in the service of one dictum: Thrill the reader.

About this author:
Benjamin Percy is the author of The Language of Elk and Refresh, Refresh. He has been awarded the Plimpton Prize and a Whiting Writers’ Award, and has been included in Best American Short Stories. He teaches at Iowa State University.

NYC – America #1 Launch Party

Writer Gabby Rivera will visit Midtown Comics Downtown on Wednesday March 1st at 7pm to sign America #1! This is an OPEN signing and we recommend showing up early, just to be safe. Getting a copy of America #1 signed is mandatory. You may get up to three items signed in total.

Get Marvel’s America #1:
At last! Everyone’s favorite no-nonsense powerhouse, America Chavez, gets her own series! Written by critically-acclaimed YA novelist Gabby Rivera (Juliet Takes A Breath) and drawn by all-star artist Joe Quinones (Howard the Duck), Marvel Comics’ brand new AMERICA series shines a solo spotlight on the high-octane and hard-hitting adventures of the one and only America Chavez! America has always been uncontestably awesome, and as the newly appointed leader of the Ultimates, she’s now officially claimed her place as the preeminent butt-kicker of the Marvel Universe! But while leading a team of heroes and punching out big bads is great and all, it doesn’t really leave much time for self-discovery. So what’s a super-powered teenager do when she’s looking for a little fulfillment? She goes to college! She just has to stop an interdimensional monster or two first, plus shut down a pesky alien cult that’s begun worshipping her exploits!

NYC – Terms and Conditions Launch Party

New Yorker cartoonist R. Sikoryak launches his latest graphic novel, Terms and Conditions, at the Strand Book Store on Thursday, March 16, 2017 at 7:00 PM. For this project, Sikoryak tackles an infamously dense legal document, the iTunes *Terms and Conditions*. In a word for word 94-page adaptation, Sikoryak hilariously turns the agreement on its head – each page features an avatar of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs juxtaposed with a different classic strip such as Mort Walker’s Beetle Bailey, or a contemporary graphic novel such as Craig Thompson’s Blankets, Marjane Satrapi’s Persepolis, or Kate Beaton’s Hark! A Vagrant.

Cartoonist R. Sikoryak is the author of Masterpiece Comics (Drawn & Quarterly). His comics and illustrations have appeared in the New Yorker, The Onion, GQ, MAD, SpongeBob Comics, and Nickelodeon Magazine, as well as on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Sikoryak is in the speakers program of the New York Council of the Humanities, and he teaches in the illustration department at Parsons The New School for Design and at The Center for Cartoon Studies. Since 1997, he’s presented his live cartoon slide show series, Carousel, around the United States and Canada. He lives in New York City with his wife, Kriota Willberg.
