MO – All Summer Long/Be Prepared Signing

Comic creators Vera Brosgol and Hope Larson appear at The Novel Neighbor on Sunday, May 6, 2018 at 5:00 PM to speak in conversation about their upcoming summer-themed books.

“Be Prepared” (Brosgol): All Vera wants to do is fit in―but that’s not easy for a Russian girl in the suburbs. Her friends live in fancy houses and their parents can afford to send them to the best summer camps. Vera’s single mother can’t afford that sort of luxury, but there’s one summer camp in her price range―Russian summer camp. Vera is sure she’s found the one place she can fit in, but camp is far from what she imagined. And nothing could prepare her for all the “cool girl” drama, endless Russian history lessons, and outhouses straight out of nightmares!

“All Summer Long” (Larson): Thirteen-year-old Bina has a long summer ahead of her. She and her best friend, Austin, usually do everything together, but he’s off to soccer camp for a month, and he’s been acting kind of weird lately anyway. So it’s up to Bina to see how much fun she can have on her own. At first it’s a lot of guitar playing, boredom, and bad TV, but things look up when she finds an unlikely companion in Austin’s older sister, who enjoys music just as much as Bina. But then Austin comes home from camp, and he’s acting even weirder than when he left. How Bina and Austin rise above their growing pains and reestablish their friendship and respect for their differences makes for a touching and funny coming-of-age story.

Books for signing will be available for purchase at event.

*Due to time constraints, only books purchased through The Novel Neighbor, either at event or by pre-order, are eligible for signing line.

UK – Action Comics/Skyward Signing

Two great artists, Lee Garbett and Jock, will be signing at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Wednesday 18th April from 6:00 – 7:00 PM.

Lee Garbett has worked on a range of DC Comics, including Batman, Batgirl, Lucifer, Outsiders and Wonder Woman. He’s also worked for Marvel on Original Sin and Loki: Agent of Asgard.

In Skyward, gravity on earth suddenly became a fraction of what it is now. Twenty years later, humanity has adapted to its new low-gravity reality. And to Willa Fowler, a woman born just after G-day, it’s well, it’s pretty awesome, actually. You can fly through the air! I mean, sure, you can also die if you jump too high. So you just don’t jump too high. And maybe don’t stumble into a dangerous plan to bring gravity back, which could get you killed.

Jock has created storyboards and concept art for films including Hancock, Children of Men, Batman Begins, and Star Wars: The Last Jedi. His comics work includes Green Arrow, Scalped, Batman, Wolverine, Constantine and Judge Dredd.

He will be there to celebrate the milestone issue of Action Comics #1000, signing the Forbidden Planet Exclusive Variant covers and Giclee Prints.
