TX – Black River Signing


Cartoonist Josh Simmons appears at Austin Books & Comics on Friday, June 5th  at 5:00 PM to sign copies of his latest graphic novel, Black River. We’re thrilled that he made us his Austin stop as part of his promotional tour. Stop in to get your copy signed and talk about his work in comics!

About Black River:
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.

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.


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.
