NYC – Old Man Hawkeye #1 Launch Party

Writer Ethan Sacks appears at Midtown Comics Downtown on Thursday January 11, 2018 at 6:00 PM to celebrate the release of Old Man Hawkeye! This is an OPEN signing and we recommend showing up early, just to be safe. Purchase of Old Man Hawkeye #1 is mandatory; you may get up to three items signed.

Old Man Hawkeye #1:
The superheroes have fallen. The country has been divided into territories controlled by supervillains. Among the wastelands lives Clint Barton, one of the few Avengers to survive the horrors of this world. But it’s been 45 years, and he’s not the man he once was. Trying to make a living anyway he can, the former Hawkeye is confronted with a startling discovery; he’s slowly going blind. With time running short, Clint realizes there’s only one thing left for him in this world, and that’s to get revenge for his fallen comrades. Rising star Ethan Sacks and artist Marco Checchetto take you back to the Wastelands in a story set five years prior to the beginning of the now-classic Old Man Logan as the world’s greatest marksman sets his sights on surviving.

NY – The Cruel Prince Launch Party

Author Holly Black (Spiderwick Chronicles, Magisterium series) appears at Oblong Books & Music on Tuesday, January 2, 2018 at 6:00 PM to present and sign THE CRUEL PRINCE.

By #1 New York Times bestselling author Holly Black, the first book in a stunning new series about a mortal girl who finds herself caught in a web of royal faerie intrigue.

Jude was seven years old when her parents were murdered and she and her two sisters were stolen away to live in the treacherous High Court of Faerie. Ten years later, Jude wants nothing more than to belong there, despite her mortality. But many of the fey despise humans. Especially Prince Cardan, the youngest and wickedest son of the High King.

To win a place at the Court, she must defy him—and face the consequences.

In doing so, she becomes embroiled in palace intrigues and deceptions, discovering her own capacity for bloodshed. But as civil war threatens to drown the Courts of Faerie in violence, Jude will need to risk her life in a dangerous alliance to save her sisters, and Faerie itself.
