Writer Gene Luen Yang (American Born Chinese, Avatar: The Last Airbender) appears at The Grove’s Barnes & Noble on Saturday, April 16, 2016 at 7:00 PM to sign SUPERMAN: BEFORE TRUTH!
A new era for the Man of Steel begins here—crafted by National Book Award nominee Gene Luen Yang. Superman is going through some changes. First, there’s his new “solar flare” power, which releases tremendous amounts of energy but leaves him functionally human—fragile, vulnerable, prone to hangovers—for 24 hours.
But an even bigger change is coming. A new company called Hordr has sprung up, and its business is secrets.
Join us for an epic evening with Gene Luen Yang for this special discussion and signing of Superman Vol 1. Before Truth.
This is a wristbanded event.
A wristband will be issued to customers who purchase Superman Vol 1. Before Truth at Barnes & Noble at The Grove beginning April 16th at 9am
· Seating in the event space will be limited to the first 100 fanswho purchase Superman Vol 1. Before Truth
· Limit 1 wristband per book
· Check back for more details as they become available

Challengers is honored to host Eisner Award-winning cartoonist FAITH ERIN HICKS for a discussion and signing for the first volume in her new NAMELESS CITY trilogy. This event will start with a discussion between Faith Erin Hicks and local journalist (and comics fan) Web Behrens, with a signing to follow. Challengers will have copies of Nameless City Volume 1 on hand for sale, as well as other fantastic books from Faith’s career, but fans are invited to bring their own copies if they’d like. We’re enormously excited to have as talented a creator as Faith Erin Hicks here for an event. Don’t miss your chance to meet her!
This event runs from 6pm to 8pm on Wednesday, April 6th, and is intended for all ages. Bring the whole family!
Every nation that invades the City gives it a new name. But before long, new invaders arrive and the City changes hands once again. The natives don’t let themselves get caught up in the unending wars. To them, their home is the Nameless City, and those who try to name it are forever outsiders. Kaidu is one such outsider. He’s a Dao born and bred–a member of the latest occupying nation. Rat is a native of the Nameless City. At first, she hates Kai for everything he stands for, but his love of his new home may be the one thing that can bring these two unlikely friends together. Let’s hope so, because the fate of the Nameless City rests in their hands.
Faith Erin Hicks is a writer and artist in Vancouver, British Columbia.
