NYC – The Wrenchies Signing

fd091814Farel Dalrymple presents The Wrenchies in conversation with Brian Heater of Boing Boing on Wednesday, September 17, 2014 at 7:30 PM at the Greenlight Bookstore!

Press Release:

Critically acclaimed cartoonist Farel Dalrymple (creator of Pop Gun War and collaborator with Jonathan Lethem on Omega the Unknown) brings his literary and artistic powers to bear in his new book The Wrenchies, a sprawling science fiction graphic novel about regret, obsession, and the uncertainty of growing up. In Dalrymple’s demented future, humans on a destroyed Earth are oppressed by the evil Shadowsmen, and only a gang of ruthless and powerful children called the Wrenchies can hope to stand against them. When Hollis, a lonely boy from our world, is magically given access to the future world of the Wrenchies, he finally finds a place he belongs. But it is not an easy world to live in, and Hollis’s quest is bigger than he ever dreamed. Dalrymple will present the book with a slideshow of images, and talk about his work with Brian Heater, who writes about comics for the technology and culture site Boing Boing.

NY – King Kirby Ale Launch Party

king kirby

Ron Marz, Paul Harding, Tom Raney, Fred Van Lente, Crystal Skillman, and more appear at the Shmaltz Brewery on Thursday August 28th from 4:00 – 8:00 PM!

Press Release:

Shmaltz Brewery in Clifton Park, NY will host a fundraiser birthday party on Thursday, August 28th, 2014 to celebrate the late Jack “The King” Kirby’s birthday. Kirby is considered by many to be the co-creator (along with Stan Lee) of the Marvel Comics Universe. Kirby co-created many of the superheroes being adored by fans of Marvel’s recent blockbuster movies, including the Avengers, the Hulk, Captain America, Thor, the Fantastic Four and many more.

A group of local comic professionals approached Shmaltz about doing an event, with proceeds to be donated in Jack Kirby’s honor to Hero Initiative, a non-profit organization that helps comic creators in need. Shmaltz stepped up in a big way, creating a limited-edition, Kirby-labeled ale exclusively for the party. King Kirby Ale will make its debut at the event, and a limited number of cases will be available for purchase. With a special edition label designed and drawn by Clifton Park artist Paul Harding, the ale will be available in both Pale and Dark varieties. Shmaltz is donating a percentage of ale sales to Hero Initiative.

“I tried to capture Kirby from an angle that few have seen before, in a way that people can actually look up to him and get a sense of his artistic power,” said Harding, who has sculpted statues and action figures for DC Comics and many other comic-industry clients.

The Aug. 28 event will run from 4 to 8 p.m., and feature an impressive array of comic professionals, including Ron Marz, Paul Harding, Tom Raney, Fred Van Lente, Crystal Skillman and many others, who will be signing and sketching for donations to Hero Initiative. Van Lente and Skillman are the co-authors of the recent play “King Kirby,” about Jack Kirby’s life, which enjoyed a successful, well-reviewed run in New York City. Fans attending the party will be able to get autographs and sketches from the comic pros, and enjoy a beer tasting as well as a piece of special Jack Kirby birthday cake. Live music will be provided by Saratoga-based rock ensemble Sugar Pill, led by virtuoso John Stack on guitar and vocals. Party tickets are $20, with proceeds donated to Hero Initiative. Door prizes have been donated by Comic Depot of Saratoga Springs, and Excellent Adventures Comics of Ballston Spa.
