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!

OR – Pretty Deadly Signing

ksd-pd

Writer Kelly Sue DeConnick appears on Wednesday April 30 at the Portland TFAW from 6 to 9 p.m. to celebrate Pretty Deadly, her hit from Image Comics series co-created with Emma Ríos, Stop by the Pretty Deadly Volume 1 signing to purchase the first collected graphic novel and enjoy free food and beer (those 21+ with ID).

Kelly Sue DeConnick is one of the most prominent writers in comics today, with acclaimed runs on Avengers Assemble, Captain Marvel, and Ghost. Pretty Deadly, DeConnick’s fantasy western with artist Emma Ríos (Doctor Strange, Osborn), debuted in October 2013 to stellar reviews, and immediately sold out on release date.

Pretty Deadly Volume 1 presents the collected opening arc of Kelly Due DeConnick and Emma Ríos’ surprise-hit series, which marries the magical realism of Sandman with the western brutality of Preacher. Death’s daughter rides the wind on a horse made of smoke and her face bears the skull marks of her father. Her origin story is a tale of retribution as beautifully lush as it is unflinchingly savage!

Pretty Deadly Volume 1 will be available for purchase for just $9.99. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to meet one of the hottest writers in comics April 30 at the Portland TFAW!
