OR – Krysten Ritter Signing

Actress Krysten Ritter (Marvel’s Jessica Jones, The Defenders) appears at the Powell’s City of Books on Tuesday, November 14th at 7:00 PM to present and sign copies of her debut thriller, BonfirePlease note: A purchase of Bonfire is required to join the signing line.

From actress, producer, and writer, Krysten Ritter, a psychological suspense novel about a woman forced to confront her past in the wake of small-town corruption

It has been ten years since Abby Williams left home and scrubbed away all visible evidence of her small town roots. Now working as an environmental lawyer in Chicago, she has a thriving career, a modern apartment, and her pick of meaningless one-night stands.

But when a new case takes her back home to Barrens, Indiana, the life Abby painstakingly created begins to crack. Tasked with investigating Optimal Plastics, the town’s most high-profile company and economic heart, Abby begins to find strange connections to Barrens’ biggest scandal from more than a decade ago involving the popular Kaycee Mitchell and her closest friends—just before Kaycee disappeared for good.

Abby knows the key to solving any case lies in the weak spots, the unanswered questions. But as she tries desperately to find out what really happened to Kaycee, troubling memories begin to resurface and she begins to doubt her own observations. And when she unearths an even more disturbing secret—a ritual called “The Game,” it will threaten the reputations, and lives, of the community and risk exposing a darkness that may consume her.

With tantalizing twists, slow-burning suspense, and a remote, rural town of just five claustrophobic miles, Bonfire is a dark exploration of what happens when your past and present collide.

OR – The Grouchy Historian Signing

Ed Asner and Ed Weinberger appear at Powell’s City of Books on Sunday, November 12, 2017 at 4:00 PM to discuss their new book, The Grouchy Historian: An Old-Time Lefty Defends Our Constitution Against Right-Wing Hypocrites and Nutjobs.

Ed Asner, a self-proclaimed dauntless Democrat from the old days, figured that if the right-wing wackos are wrong about voter fraud, Obama’s death panels, and climate change, they are probably just as wrong about what the Constitution says. There’s no way that two hundred-plus years later, the right-wing ideologues know how to interpret the Constitution. On their way home from Philadelphia the people who wrote it couldn’t agree on what it meant. What was the president’s job? Who knew? All they knew was that the president was going to be George Washington and as long as he was in charge, that was good enough. When Hamilton wanted to start a national bank, Madison told him that it was unconstitutional. Both men had been in the room when the Constitution was written. And now today there are politicians and judges who claim that they know the original meaning of the Constitution. Are you kidding? In The Grouchy Historian, Ed Asner leads the charge for liberals to reclaim the Constitution from the right-wingers who use it as their justification for doing whatever terrible thing they want to do, which is usually to comfort the comfortable and afflict the afflicted. It’s about time someone gave them hell and explained that progressives can read, too.

Press Release: 

Sequential Art Gallery + Studio is excited to have artist LUKAS KETNER return to exhibit his artwork from KILL THE MINOTAUR from Image Comics. The exhibition begins with an artist’s reception from 6pm-10pm on Thursday, November 2nd, and will be available for viewing throughout November.

In KILL THE MINOTAUR, Chris Pasetto, Christian Cantamessa (RED DEAD REDEMPTION) and Ketner (WITCH DOCTOR) reinvent the most fearsome beast of all with this horrific tale of heroism. Athens lost the war to Crete. Now, they pay tribute to King Minos by sacrificing their best citizens to his unearthly labyrinth. Conspirators believe Theseus can be the hero they need to end the mad king’s bloody reign… but no one on this world has ever encountered anything like the savage minotaur.

Lukas Ketner grew up in Anchorage until moving to Portland, Oregon in 2000. He is the artist and co-creator of Witch Doctor, the launch title for Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman’s Skybound imprint at Image Comics. Other work includes stories for Dark Horse Comics’ Creepy Comics and Supersized: Strange Tales From a Fast-Food Culture, along with covers for IDW’s Hellraiser title. His illustration work varies from his work in comics to editorial illustrations for magazines and alt-weeklies to motorcycle helmet artwork for Icon Motosports. He was a 2009 nominee for the Russ Manning Award, and has twice won entry into the Communication Arts Illustration Annual for his album artwork for the band The Builders and the Butchers.

The KILL THE MINOTAUR exhibit will be on display the entire month of November. The gallery is open for viewing Mondays 2pm-6pm, Saturdays 11am-5pm, and by appointment. The exhibit closes on Saturday, December 2nd, at the end of business.
