NYC – The Con Artist Launch Party

Join  Astoria Bookshop on Tuesday, July 10th, to celebrate the launch of Fred Van Lente’s new book The Con Artist! As the #1 New York Times best-selling writer of comics like The Amazing Spider-Man, Deadpool vs. the Punisher, and Archer & Armstrong, Fred Van Lente has been called “a popular culture maven” (Vice). His work has been praised as “some of the funniest material you’ll read in any format” (The Hollywood Reporter), and his debut novel, Ten Dead Comedians was an Amazon Best of the Month in Mystery, Thriller, and Suspense. In The Con Artist, Van Lente, who has worked in the comic book industry for nearly twenty years, returns with his second novel, a murder mystery set at a comic convention.

An unconventional whodunit for comic book fans and mystery lovers alike, THE CON ARTIST perfectly captures the chaotic energy of comic cons and reveals that heroes and villains aren’t just reserved for the pages and panels of our favorite graphic novels.

Fred Van Lente will be joined by Brian Cronin. Brian Cronin has been writing professionally about comic books for over a dozen years now at CBR (primarily with his “Comics Should Be Good” series of columns, including Comic Book Legends Revealed). He has written two books about comics for Penguin-Random House – Was Superman a Spy? And Other Comic Book Legends Revealed and Why Does Batman Carry Shark Repellent? And Other Amazing Comic Book Trivia! His third book, 100 Things X-Men Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die, came out out from Triumph Books in April 2018. His writing has been featured at ESPN.com, the Los Angeles Times, About.com, the Huffington Post and Gizmodo. He features legends about entertainment and sports at his website, Legends Revealed.

Fred Van Lente is the #1 New York Times bestselling writer of such comics as The Amazing Spider-Man, Marvel Zombies, Deadpool vs. the Punisher, GI Joe, Archer & Armstrong, and many others. He also wrote the novel Ten Dead Comedians. He lives in Brooklyn.

NY – Mick Foley: 20 Years of Hell Tour

Mick Foley appears at Helium Comedy Club on Thursday, June 14th at 8:00 PM.

Climb on board the “TWENTY YEARS OF HELL” tour for a thrill ride TWENTY YEARS in the making – as Mick Foley, professional wrestling’s hardcore legend, takes audiences along for an in-depth look at the most famous match of his hall-of-fame career – and perhaps, the most talked about match in sports-entertainment history.

With his trademark blend of wit and wisdom, wildness and warmth that shot two of his memoirs to the top of The New York Times best-seller list, Foley will use every tool in his arsenal – dozens of classic promos, hundreds of hours onstage, thousands of matches, and almost a MILLION published words – to weave a spell-binding web of stories, designed to take fans along on a journey back to June 28, 1998 – the night of the infamous “Hell in a Cell” match. It was the night that Foley somehow survived two spine rattling falls off of, and through the ominous Cell structure, shrugged off a stint of unconsciousness, and finished the match with a front tooth lodged in his nose. Finding humor in the most unlikely of places, “TWENTY YEARS OF HELL” brings the laughs, but is much more than just a comedic one-man show. He will make you feel like you are there…RIGHT THERE – in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, watching history write itself. By equal turns laugh out loud funny, stunningly surreal and heart wrenchingly real, “TWENTY YEARS OF HELL” is a once in a lifetime chance to hear wrestling’s finest story-teller talking about the night he walked down an aisle a wrestler, and walked away a legend.

Each show begins with Mick’s recollections of wrestling in the town he is performing in and will conclude with a candid 30-45 minute Q&A where all subjects are fair game.

VIP Ticket Includes: Meet and greet with photo op and autograph.
