About Space Dumplins:
Highly acclaimed graphic novelist Craig Thompson’s debut book for young readers about a plucky heroine on a mission to save her dad. For Violet Marlocke, family is the most important thing in the whole galaxy. So when her father goes missing while on a hazardous job, she can’t just sit around and do nothing. To get him back, Violet throws caution to the stars and sets out with a group of misfit friends on a quest to find him. But space is vast and dangerous, and she soon discovers that her dad is in big, big trouble. With her father’s life on the line, nothing is going to stop Violet from trying to rescue him and keep her family together. Space Dumplins weaves themes of family, friendship, and loyalty into a grand space adventure filled with quirky aliens, awesome spaceships, and sharp commentary on our environmentally challenged world.

About Sunny Side Up:
From the groundbreaking and award-winning sister-brother team behind Babymouse comes a middle-grade, semi-autobiographical graphic novel. Jennifer L. Holm is the New York Times bestselling and three-time Newbery Honor-winning author of multiple novels for young readers. Matthew Holm was born and raised in the suburbs of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and has been drawing comics since he was in middle school. This sister-brother team created the graphic novel series Babymouse and Squish.

Zomburbia

Press Release:

Bridge City Comics is proud to announce our Zomburbia Signing with Adam Gallardo on Friday, August 29, 2014 from 6:00 – 9:00 pm! This event is free to the public.

While Gallardo has several successful comics series under his belt (Star Wars Infinites: Return of the Jedi, 100 Girls, Gear School) under his belt, this is the first YA novel published by this Salem author! We will have copies available for sale at the event.

On a personal note, Adam has been a friend for a very long time. I’m extremely proud of him and I hope that everyone comes out to support his book. I’ve read an advanced copy and it’s great!

Refreshments will be served free of charge.

About Zomburbia:
Lifeless. Slow-moving. Brain-dead. Welcome To Zomburbia.My name is Courtney Hart, and I’m here to tell you about things that suck. Being born in a podunk town like Salem, Oregon, for one. Living in a world infested with zombies? That, too. And the meat heads I go to school with? I think I’d actually take the undead over them most days. But I have a plan to get out of here and move to New York. I just have to keep selling Vitamin Z along with your fries at The Bully Burger. The secret ingredient? Zombie brains. I’ve noticed things are getting even worse lately, if that’s even possible. The zombies seem to be getting smarter and faster. If I can avoid being arrested, eaten by shufflers, or catching the eye of some stupid boy, I should be able to make it through finals week still breathing. . .
