Writer Kelly Sue DeConnick appears on Wednesday April 30 at the Portland TFAW from 6 to 9 p.m. to celebrate Pretty Deadly, her hit from Image Comics series co-created with Emma Ríos, Stop by the Pretty Deadly Volume 1 signing to purchase the first collected graphic novel and enjoy free food and beer (those 21+ with ID).
Kelly Sue DeConnick is one of the most prominent writers in comics today, with acclaimed runs on Avengers Assemble, Captain Marvel, and Ghost. Pretty Deadly, DeConnick’s fantasy western with artist Emma Ríos (Doctor Strange, Osborn), debuted in October 2013 to stellar reviews, and immediately sold out on release date.
Pretty Deadly Volume 1 presents the collected opening arc of Kelly Due DeConnick and Emma Ríos’ surprise-hit series, which marries the magical realism of Sandman with the western brutality of Preacher. Death’s daughter rides the wind on a horse made of smoke and her face bears the skull marks of her father. Her origin story is a tale of retribution as beautifully lush as it is unflinchingly savage!
Pretty Deadly Volume 1 will be available for purchase for just $9.99. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to meet one of the hottest writers in comics April 30 at the Portland TFAW!

MING DOYLE, JOE QUINONES, and MARIS WICKS appear at The Big Bang on Friday, November 29, 2013 from 6:00pm until 8:00pm for a rare Irish signing!
Probably better known for her work on Brian Wood’s MARA and the artist in the new story arc of QUANTUM & WOODY, Ming also has done a ton of covers and a short story recently with Kelly Sue DeConnick for the WITCHING HOUR Vertigo anthology. (stil in stock, true believers!)
Joe has been around for the last couple of years, starting with TEEN TITANS GO and then GREEN LANTERN with Kurt Busiek and is of late a popular cover artist for DARK HORSE, DC and MARVEL (the last thing you’ll have seen him lately on would be the recent CAPTAIN MARVEL covers). He also has a BLACK CANARY/ZATANNA project coming out with Paul Dini soon, the lucky bastard.
Maris is the artist of (the really, really good) PRIMATES, which is currently sold out but due back in stock soon!
She is also a writer AND a colourist, so we’ll be seeing much more of her in the future.
