Press Release:

Celebrate 20 years of comics’ favorite paranormal detective during Hellboy Day March 22 from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Portland TFAW!

This can’t-miss event kicks off with a Q&A with Scott Allie, Hellboy editor for 20 years and writer of Abe Sapien; Dave Stewart, Eisner Award-winning Hellboy colorist; and Tyler Crook, Eisner Award-winning B.P.R.D. artist; a signing will follow.

Attendees will enjoy Hellboy Day exclusives from Dark Horse, raffle prizes–including items signed by Hellboy creator Mike Mignola–a photo op with “Hellboy” himself, portrayed by Kyle Yount, and free food and beer (21+ with valid ID).

Creator Mike Mignola debuted Hellboy, his wildly popular demon detective, just over 20 years ago through Dark Horse Comics.

Since then, the universe has expanded into additional titles like B.P.R.D., Abe Sapien, and more.

Mark your calendars and come make a toast to Hellboy March 22!

BJ Novak signs at Powell’s Books on Wednesday, February 19th at 7:00 pm!

Press Release:

B. J. Novak, perhaps best known for his acting, writing, and producing credits on The Office, turns his prodigious comedic talents to composing fiction. One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories (Knopf) is an endlessly entertaining, surprisingly sensitive, and startlingly original debut. Across a dazzling range of subjects, themes, tones, and narrative voices, One More Thing has at its heart the most human of phenomena: love, fear, hope, ambition, and the inner stirring for the one elusive element that just might make a person complete.
