nyc-ruins

Cartoonist Peter Kuper appears at The Strand on Tuesday, September 22, 2015 at 7:00 PM and will be joined in conversation by Karen Green, librarian of both Graphic Novels and Ancient and Medieval Art at Columbia University.

With a career spanning the pages of the New York Times to MAD magazine, the front lines of political cartoonery at World War 3 to the classroom at Parsons and SVA, the artist and illustrator Peter Kuper is a bona fide veteran of the graphic novel scene. His latest book, Ruins, tells a story of coincidence and fate as a New York couple sets out on sabbatical in Oaxaca, Mexico, and a monarch butterfly departs Canada for sunnier climes in its annual migration.

Buy a copy of Ruins or a $15 gift card in order to attend this event.

Press Release:

Harvard Book Store welcomes New Zealand–based graphic novelist DYLAN HORROCKS for a presentation of his latest graphic novel, Sam Zabel And The Magic Pen on Saturday September 26, 2015 at 7:00 PM.

Dylan Horrocks returns with a long-awaited new graphic novel, the first since his perennial classic, 1998’s Hicksville. Cartoonist Sam Zabel hasn’t drawn a comic in years. Stuck in a nightmare of creative block and despair, Sam spends his days writing superhero stories for a large American comics publisher and staring at a blank piece of paper, unable to draw a single line. Then one day he finds a mysterious old comic book set on Mars and is suddenly thrown headlong into a wild, fantastic journey through centuries of comics, stories, and imaginary worlds. Accompanied by a young webcomic creator named Alice and an enigmatic schoolgirl with rocket boots and a bag full of comics, Sam goes in search of the Magic Pen, encountering sex-crazed aliens, medieval monks, pirates, pixies and—of course—cartoonists. Funny, erotic, and thoughtful, Sam Zabel and the Magic Pen explores the pleasures, dangers, and moral consequences of fantasy.

EXCLUSIVE: Skybound Returns to Long Beach Comic Con

Superfight

Press Release:

Skybound Returns To Long Beach Comic Con 

7th Annual Southern California Event Welcomes Back The Creators of The Walking Dead, Invincible & More!

Long Beach, CA (August 25, 2015) – Long Beach Comic Con is excited to welcome back Robert Kirkman’s Skybound Entertainment, to our 2015 event taking place September 12th and 13th at the Long Beach Convention Center. Skybound will be setting up shop among LBCC’s veritable sea of diverse geek-tastic exhibitors, bringing all the comics, collectibles, trades and exclusive items you can handle. You’ll also enjoy the opportunity to check out SUPERFIGHT, Skybound’s card game of absurd arguments.

SUPERFIGHT pits ridiculous made up characters against each other on a hypothetical battlefield. Cards are drawn to establish strengths and weaknesses, but the real game starts when players get a chance to argue with each other and express why their character would trounce their opponent, with the rest of the table deciding who wins the day and who goes back to their secret skull mountain to cry to their minions. Fans visiting Long Beach Comic Con can get their hands on the SUPERFIGHT core deck and any of its nine expansions, where the real challenge is to not get addicted!

Skybound’s comic book universes of super powered beings, supernatural creatures and ordinary people surviving in extra ordinary circumstances are a perfect fit for Long Beach Comic Con, joining exhibitors like Hero Initiative, Storm King Productions, Man of Action, The Hillywood Show, SGX Print and Comiccraft, providing fans with a convention floor full of talented people and amazing items to be discovered around every corner. Mark your calendars! September 12th is coming up quickly!
