IL – God Hates Astronauts Signing

gha

Ryan Browne signs at Challengers Comics on Friday April 12th from 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm!

RSVP on Facebook!

We’re throwing a party to celebrate the release of GOD HATES ASTRONAUTS: THE COMPLETELY COMPLETE COLLECTION, and unfortunately creator Ryan Browne found out about it, so he’ll be here to sign books and irritate Dal. Beer and wine will be served, which is sure to keep Ryan in a “charming” mood. Attendees will not only be able to get the FIRST copies of the God Hates Astronauts hardcover, but they can get a FREE Challengers exclusive “Ex Libris Challengers” bookplate with each hardcover.

From the creator of “Blast Furnace: Recreational Thief” and “Smoke and Mirrors” comes the ultimate collection of the most outrageous weirdo parody comic on the web, GOD HATES ASTRONAUTS. Imagine a book that is a bizarre mix of “The Venture Brothers”, “Aqua Teen Hunger Force”, “The Tick” and that hilarious Billy Bob Thornton film “The Astronaut Farmer.”

GHA follows the story of a group of incompetent, small-minded, super powered narcissists called “The Power Persons Five” who are hired by NASA to stop all farmers from launching themselves into space in homemade rocket ships. Unfortunately, for NASA, this goal is scarcely even addressed and the book focuses more on extramarital affairs, bank robing owls, big gross swollen heads, ghost cow heads, olde tyme boxers, tigers eating cheeseburgers in the Crab Nebula, buffalo judges and tons of aggressive swearing. Not as much a superhero book as it is a parody of basically everything and a celebration of weird that is jam-packed with references to Robo-Cop and Die Hard.

A NEW SERIES FROM SIXTH GUN WRITER CULLEN BUNN AND FAN FAVORITE ARTIST JOËLLE JONES! “Once the threshold of Helheim is crossed, not even gods can escape.” During the age of the Vikings, savage wild men and dark creatures beset a small settlement. A brave war party stands as guardians of the helpless villagers, but they are no match for the horrors rising up around them. One of the warriors, a young hero named Rikard, will pay the ultimate price in battle… but his fight is far from over. A gothic horror story of witchcraft, night creatures, and the undead.
