NUMBER 13 #1
The young bionic amnesiac known as Number 13 searches for answers and his creator, in a future world that’s been brought to its knees by the vicious Monstrum Morbus plague. Weakened by his last explosive encounter, Number 13 is discovered by a group of curious, scavenging mutants who have banded together for survival. They dub him “Thirteen” and invite him to join their group — and one of them knows exactly what horrible purpose he was built for!

R.I.P.D.: CITY OF THE DAMNED #1
Roy Pulsipher and Nick Walker are dead, but that doesn’t mean their time in law enforcement is over. Both Roy and Nick are officers in the Rest in Peace Department, sworn to serve the Almighty and protect the living from evil’s foul corruption. Their current case has them chasing a ghostly fanatic determined to undo all of creation — a threat with very personal connections to Roy’s past, stretching back a hundred years into a weird, Wild West and Roy’s first day on the job. It’s a twisted history that Nick is only starting to uncover, and one that could have him reconsidering ever joining the R.I.P.D.! Prequel to the upcoming feature film starring Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges!

OR – Drama Release Party

Raina Telgemeier signs at Bridge City Comics on Wednesday, October 10, 2012 from 6pm – 8pm!

RSVP on Facebook!

Press Release:

Bridge City Comics is proud to announce our Drama Release Party on Wednesday, October 10, 2012 from 6pm – 8pm! This event is free to the public. In attendance to sign autographs will be Drama writer/artist Raina Telgemeier. Copies of the book will be available for sale ($10.99) during the event, as well as copies of her other works.

Callie loves theater. And while she would totally try out for her middle school’s production of Moon Over Mississippi, she’s a terrible singer. Instead she’s the set designer for the stage crew, and this year she’s determined to create a set worthy of Broadway on a middle-school budget. But how can she, when she doesn’t know much about carpentry, ticket sales are down, and the crew members are having trouble working together? Not to mention the onstage AND offstage drama that occurs once the actors are chosen, and when two cute brothers enter the picture, things get even crazier! Following the success of SMILE, Raina Telgemeier brings us another graphic novel featuring a diverse set of characters that humorously explores friendship, crushes, and all-around drama!

About the Authors:
Telgemeier was born May 26, 1977 in San Francisco. In her pre-teen years, Telgemeier suffered a serious mouth injury that required several years of dental and orthodontic surgery, (which is described in her 2010 graphic novel Smile). She was viciously teased by her friends because of this medical treatment, prompting her to partially withdraw into her love of drawing until she lost her patience with the abuse when they publicly humiliated her. She eventually found new friends of better character in high school who appreciated her artistic talent, increasing her confidence. With that encouragement, she studied illustration at New York’s School of Visual Arts, and currently lives in Queens, New York. Telgemeier’s works include a series of self-published mini-comics called Take-Out, a short story in Bizarro World for DC Comics, a short story in Volume 4 of the Flight anthology,and four graphic novel adaptations of Ann M. Martin’s The Baby-sitters Club series for Scholastic/Graphix: Kristy’s Great Idea, The Truth About Stacey, Mary Anne Saves the Da,y and Claudia and Mean Janine.
