TX – Monster on the Hill Signing

mth

Meet Rob Harrell, creator of the Top Shelf graphic novel Monster on the Hill, at Austin Books and Comics on Saturday, November 2nd from noon till 4pm!

About Monster on the Hill:

In a fantastical 1860s England, every quiet little township is terrorized by a ferocious monster — much to the townsfolk’s delight! Each town’s unique monster is a source of local pride, not to mention tourism.

Each town, that is… except for one. Unfortunately for the people of Stoker-on-Avon, their monster isn’t quite as impressive. In fact, he’s a little down in the dumps. Can the morose Rayburn get a monstrous makeover and become a proper horror? It’s up to the eccentric Dr. Charles Wilkie and plucky street urchin Timothy to get him up to snuff, before a greater threat turns the whole town to kindling.

TX – Kick Ass Signing

Writer Mark Millar and artist John Romita Jr. join us for a signing on Saturday, March 13th from 5 to 6 pm.  We’re thrilled to have them here for what will surely be a BIG weekend for KICK-ASS.  To make sure as many people get to meet them as possible, we have a few rules in place for this signing.

Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. are scheduled to be here from 5 to 6 pm.  Be sure to get here early for your best chance to get a signature!

You’re welcome to bring a camera to the event and take pictures, but we’ve been asked that there be no individualized photos.  They slow the line down a lot, and our guests have limited time with us as it is.

Each person in line is allowed to have one item signed.  This is a promotion for the new KICK-ASS movie, so the only book being signed is the KICK-ASS hardcover.  If you’ve already bought the hardcover FROM US and made contact with us before this notice, you may bring that in.  We will have copies of the hardcover available for sale that day.  If you’d rather not buy a hardcover, there will be free KICK-ASS miniposters to be signed.  No other outside material will be allowed into the store.

There will be no holding places in line.  Anyone new to the line goes to the end of it.  This will be enforced!

We know this all sounds a little hardcore, but we want to make sure as many people as possible get their books signed in the limited time we have.  By following these rules, you may be insuring that you get your chance to meet them.
