Who is Neal Adams? Neal Adams is a towering figure in the world of comic book creation and art. Neal has had legendary ‘runs’ on Batman, X-Men, Green Lantern/Green Arrow, and Deadman. Adams rescued Batman from the campy nostalgia of the television show, and re-fitted him in his present incarnation as an “Avenger of the Night.” When people say ‘modern Batman,’ they mean Neal Adams’ Batman. His run on Batman led directly to the new, more realistic incarnation in “Batman Returns” movie, which featured the character he created, Ra’s Al Ghul. Neal just did an 8 page story in Batman Black & White #1. Don’t miss out on picking one up at the store and having Neal sign it.

Neal is currently working on a Superman Series for DC Comics.

Josh Simmons (The Furry Trap, House) returns with a full-length graphic novel about a bedraggled group making their way through a post-apocalyptic world in search of some sort of civilization. Along the way, they encounter fools, lunatics, murderous sadists and also visit a comedy club. All manner of terrors, in other words. Simmons is one of the most distinctive voices in the horror genre and Black River, with its perfect pacing, is his best work yet.

ABOUT NICK OFFERMAN

Nick Offerman is People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive 2012: Moustache Edition, currently stars in the NBC series Parks and Recreation. His numerous television and movie appearances include roles in Childrens Hospital, 21 Jump Street, and The Men Who Stare at Goats. Offerman lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Megan Mullally, where he spends his time off-set running the Offerman Woodshop, where he builds canoes, dining room tables, and mustache combs.

ABOUT GUMPTION

After the great success of his autobiography, Paddle Your Own Canoe, Offerman now focuses on the lives of those who inspired him. From George Washington to Willie Nelson, he describes twenty-one heroic figures and why they inspire in him such great meaning. He’ll combine both serious history with light-hearted humor—comparing, say, George Washington’s wooden teeth to his own experience as a woodworker. The subject matter will also allow Offerman to expound upon his favorite topics, which readers love to hear—areas such as religion, politics, woodworking and handcrafting, agriculture, creativity, philosophy, fashion, and, of course, meat.
