OR – Forming II Art Exhibition

fwcJesse Moynihan appears at Floating World Comics on Thursday July 3rd, from 6:00-10:00 pm for a FORMING II release party, art exhibit and musical powerpoint performance!

Press Release:

The long-anticipated sequel that encompasses all; mythology, theology, hermaphrodites, super-alien gods and the simple task of creating the cosmos.

Civilization, but not quite as we know it, has started to take shape. And now, in the continuing chaos, the world and most of its inhabitants have brandished their swords and, in various fashions, have charged onto the battlefield.

If Forming I hailed the birth of civilization and mapped out the genesis of life, mass, time and space, then Forming II is the raging war that ensues in the Universe’s years of adolescence.

Epic confrontations between gods and mutants, philosophical reflections, hilarious dialogue and powerful artwork make for an impressive sequel of galactic proportions. Forming II is as funny, sophisticated and mind-blowingly beautiful as the first part of Moynihan’s unique trilogy.

Join us and Jesse Moynihan on July 3rd for an art exhibit and release party for this eagerly anticipated new volume. Jesse will also present a special musical powerpoint performance that will take guests into the world of FORMING.

Jesse Moynihan grew up outside of Philadelphia where he spent most of his time drawing and playing music. In 1997 he dropped out of Pratt Institute, got a film degree at Temple University and decided to concentrate on comics. His work has been featured in The Believer, MOME, Vice, Arthur, the Philadelphia Weekly, and various independent anthologies. In 2005 he received a Xeric grant for self publishing. In 2009 he released his first graphic novel, Follow Me through Bodega. His current mystical, sci-fi epic, Forming is published by Nobrow Press in London. Jesse works as a storyboard artist for the Cartoon Network show, Adventure Time.

OR – Reunion Signing

kltfaw

Press Release:

Things From Another World is proud to introduce local writer Ken Lizzi at a special pre-release signing of his new, Portland-set sci-fi novel from Twilight Times Books, Reunion, June 4 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Portland TFAW! Free food and beer provided (must be 21+ with valid ID for beer).

Sometimes survival is not enough. Sometimes you need to fight back. The apocalypse ended Nick Gates’ night shift as a Portland cop. Finding his wife alive was a good break. Assembling a guerrilla resistance against occupiers from another Earth, however, didn’t work out so well. But an escapee from an enemy stronghold, bearing with him the possibility of reversing the “reunion,” brought hope. It will take all of Nick’s courage, luck, and skill if he–and humanity–is to survive Reunion!

“In the event of an apocalypse, loot thoughtfully,” said Ken, offering sage advice. “You may only get one chance.”

Ken Lizzi is an attorney at Dark Horse Comics and the author of an assortment of published short stories, in addition to Reunion. When not traveling, he lives in Portland, Oregon with his lovely wife Isa. He enjoys reading, homebrewing, exercise, and visiting new places. Make sure to stop by the Portland TFAW June 4, meet Ken, and purchase a special pre-release promo copy of Reunion for $17.95!
