About The Big Con Job
After working the same convention circuit for many years, a group
of flabby action heroes, aging sex symbols, and sci-fi bit players have become close friends as they watch their lines get shorter and their autographs get cheaper. That is, until they hire a cocky new booking agent who offers them their only chance at a comfortable retirement by robbing one of the largest cons in the country!

TX – The Sculptor Signing

scm-sculptorPress Release:

Austin Books is excited to welcome back Scott McCloud, creator of the new First Second graphic novel, The Sculptor. Join us for a special Q&A on Sunday, February 8th from 2:00 to 6:00 pm. This is a not-to-be missed discussion with the man that showed us exactly why we love comics so much in Understanding Comics!

About Scott McCloud:
Scott McCloud has been making comics professionally since 1984. But even more than his series Zot! or his Superman stories, McCloud is best known as the comic industry’s theorist with his books Understanding Comics, Reinventing Comics, and Making Comics. He also created the concept of 24 Hour Comics Day and has talked about the medium around the world.

About The Sculptor:
David Smith is giving his life for his art – literally. Thanks to a deal with Death, the young sculptor gets his childhood wish: to sculpt anything he can imagine with his bare hands. But now that he only has 200 days to live, deciding what to create is harder than he thought, and discovering the love of his life at the eleventh hour isn’t making it any easier. This is a story of desire taken to the edge of reason and beyond; of the frantic, clumsy dance steps of young love; and a gorgeous portrait of the world’s greatest city. It’s also about the small, warm, human moment of everyday life. Scott McCloud wrote the book on how comics work, now he vaults into great fiction with a breathtaking new work.
