OR – How to Be Happy Signing

fwcEleanor Davis appears at Floating World Comics on Wednesday July 9th, 2014 from 6:00-8:00 pm!

Press Release:

Eleanor Davis’s How to Be Happy is the artist’s first collection of graphic/literary short stories, and it’s about time. Davis is one of the finest cartoonists of her generation, and has been producing comics since the mid-2000s. Happy represents the best stories she’s drawn for such connoisseurial venues as Mome, Nobrow, and Lucky Peach, as well as her own self-publishing and web efforts. Davis achieves a rare, subtle poignancy in her narratives that are at once compelling and elusive, pregnant with mystery and a deeply satisfying emotional resonance. Happy shows the full range of Davis’s graphic skills — sketchy drawing, polished pen-and-ink line work, and meticulously designed full-color painted panels — which are always in the service of a narrative that builds to a quietly devastating climax.

Eleanor Davis lives in Athens, GA, with fellow cartoonist Drew Weing. You can check out her work at www.doing-fine.com, and buy her mini-comics at www.littlehousecomics.com.

OR – 47 Ronin Signing

tfaw

Dark Horse founder Mike Richardson signs 47 Ronin at Things From Another World in Beaverton, OR on Wednesday, July 9th from 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm!

Press Release:

Since founding Things From Another World in 1979 and Dark Horse Comics in 1986, Mike Richardson has accomplished many things, including opening a dozen retail locations, producing nearly 30 films and TV series, and writing countless comics, books, and graphic novels.

Now he returns to his roots with a 47 Ronin Signing and Meet & Greet July 9 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Beaverton TFAW–where he worked the counter from 1982 to 1988! Both longtime customers and new faces are invited to catch up with Richardson while enjoying free food and beer (21+ with ID).

With 47 Ronin, Richardson has brought Japan’s enduring national legend to comics–with artist Stan Sakai (Usagi Yojimbo). The tale of the 47 Ronin and their epic mission to avenge their wronged master epitomizes the samurai code of honor, and Richardson and Sakai have done justice to their story! Meticulously researched and beautifully illustrated, this collection of the acclaimed miniseries recounts this sweeping saga of honor and violence in all its grandeur.

Now’s your chance to enjoy an evening with Mike Richardson at the Beaverton TFAW July 9 from 6 to 9 p.m. Catch up with Richardson, enjoy free food and beer, and purchase your copy of the 47 Ronin hardcover graphic novel for just $19.99!
