Joëlle Jones, Jamie S. Rich, and Laura Allred appear at Things From Another World on Wednesday, January 7, 2015 from 7:00 – 10:00 PM!
1960s homemaker or ruthless killer-for-hire? Who says you can’t be both? Things From Another World is excited to announce that we are welcoming the creators behind the Lady Killer comic book series for a signing at our Portland TFAW location. Join Joëlle Jones (Helheim, Troublemaker), Jamie S. Rich (Spell Checkers, Madame Frankenstein), and Laura Allred (Madman, I Zombie) as they debut their newest comic book series, Lady Killer, published by Dark Horse Comics. Complimentary food and drinks will be provided as well as beer and a specialty cocktail for those 21+ in keeping with a 1960s cocktail party theme. Attendees are encouraged to dress in their best ’60s party attire, though it is not required.
Josie Schuller is a picture-perfect homemaker, wife, and mother–but she’s also a ruthless, efficient killer-for-hire. A brand-new original comic book series that combines the wholesome imagery of early 1960s domestic bliss with a tightening web of murder, paranoia, and cold-blooded survival. Mixing together elements of characters like Hannibal Lecter and Betty Draper, Lady Killer is sure to be a great read that is unlike any other comic out there.
Copies of Lady Killer #1 will be available for purchase at the event. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to meet the creators behind this exciting new book and get the first issue signed by the creative team January 7 at the Portland TFAW! Photo ops will be available for those in 1960s attire at the event.
