OR – Wolf in White Van Signing

wwv

John Darnielle will be joined in conversation by Eisner Award–winning comic book writer Matt Fraction at Powell’s Books on Wednesday October 1, 2014 at 7:30 pm.

As the creator of a text-based role-playing game, Sean Phillips, isolated by a disfiguring injury since the age of 17, guides players from around the world through his intricately imagined terrain. An audacious and gripping debut novel from John Darnielle — front man for The Mountain Goats — Wolf in White Van (Farrar Straus Giroux) is a marvel of storytelling brio and genuine literary delicacy.

OR – Zomburbia Signing

Zomburbia

Press Release:

Bridge City Comics is proud to announce our Zomburbia Signing with Adam Gallardo on Friday, August 29, 2014 from 6:00 – 9:00 pm! This event is free to the public.

While Gallardo has several successful comics series under his belt (Star Wars Infinites: Return of the Jedi, 100 Girls, Gear School) under his belt, this is the first YA novel published by this Salem author! We will have copies available for sale at the event.

On a personal note, Adam has been a friend for a very long time. I’m extremely proud of him and I hope that everyone comes out to support his book. I’ve read an advanced copy and it’s great!

Refreshments will be served free of charge.

About Zomburbia:
Lifeless. Slow-moving. Brain-dead. Welcome To Zomburbia.My name is Courtney Hart, and I’m here to tell you about things that suck. Being born in a podunk town like Salem, Oregon, for one. Living in a world infested with zombies? That, too. And the meat heads I go to school with? I think I’d actually take the undead over them most days. But I have a plan to get out of here and move to New York. I just have to keep selling Vitamin Z along with your fries at The Bully Burger. The secret ingredient? Zombie brains. I’ve noticed things are getting even worse lately, if that’s even possible. The zombies seem to be getting smarter and faster. If I can avoid being arrested, eaten by shufflers, or catching the eye of some stupid boy, I should be able to make it through finals week still breathing. . .
