MA – The Kitchen Signing


Local creator Ming Doyle appears at Hub Comics in Union Square on Wednesday December 9, 2015 from 6:00 till 8:00 PM to sign the collected edition of THE KITCHEN!

New York City, late 1970s. Times Square is a haven for sex and drugs. The city teeters on the verge of bankruptcy, while blackouts can strike at any moment. This is the world of THE KITCHEN.

The Irish gangs of Hell’s Kitchen rule the neighborhood, bringing terror to the streets and doing the dirty work for the Italian Mafia. Jimmy Brennan and his crew were the hardest bastards in the Kitchen, but after they’re all put in prison, their wives – Kath, Raven and Angie – decide to keep running their rackets. And once they get a taste of the fast life and easy money, it won’t be easy to stop.

THE KITCHEN takes one of the most popular genres in entertainment and, like The Sopranos, reimagines it for a new generation to present a classic gangster story told from a fresh point of view.

Written by talented newcomer Ollie Masters with stunning art by Ming Doyle (CONSTANTINE: THE HELLBLAZER, Quantum & Woody, Guardians of the Galaxy, Mara) and killer covers by Becky Cloonan (GOTHAM ACADEMY, Killjoys, DEMO), THE KITCHEN is not to be missed.

FL – Ukiyo Signings


Local artist and author Cary Polkovitz presents his new Graphic Novel UKIYO on Saturday, December 12, 2015 at TATE’S Lauderhill from 1:00 – 3:00 PM and TATE’S Boynton Beach: 5:00 – 7:00 PM.

The word UKIYO conjures images of the lives of Japanese courtesans and the nobility, a life of excess and luxury. Or it can mean “sorrowful world.” A “transitory world.” An implication of a separate, illusory reality. A staging place for the afterlife. Author and illustrator Cary Polkovitz’s UKIYO centers on an existence based on varying perceptions. Hallucinatory visuals tell a tale inspired by the rapidly advancing technologies of today’s social media and global economic interconnectivity. UKIYO is a study in non-linear storytelling, drugs, online personas, and obsession.

About the Author
Creator Cary Polkovitz cut his teeth as writer and penciler for NeoTek Iconography’s NAU Headhunter during his college years at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. He then went on to illustrate “Miss Adventure” and “Kodiak” for Men’s Adventure and Penthouse Comix through the mid 90s. Taking a break to teach art and become a well-known painter in South Florida’s “low-brow” art scene, and to have two volumes of his short stories published, Cary has since come back to his roots in the comic book industry.
