Tom Batiuk signs at Chapel Hill Comics on Saturday, June 8, 2013 from 2:00 until 4:00 pm!

RSVP on Facebook!

Press Release:

Chapel Hill Comics is proud to announce that as part of our 10th/35th Anniversary Festivities, we will host Tom Batiuk on Saturday, June 8, from 2pm until 4pm, when he will sign The Complete Funky Winkerbean books one and two!

From Comic Book Resources:

For more than four decades, Tom Batiuk’s “Funky Winkerbean” has been a fixture in the comics page of newspapers nationwide. Initially set in high school centered around a group of students and a handful of teachers and employees — including the secretary who actually ran the school and Harry L. Dinkle, the self-proclaimed “world’s greatest band director.” In 1992, Batiuk relaunched the strip, jumping forward in time, something he did again in 2007.

During this time Batiuk has received both praise and criticism for combining dramatic and comedic elements and tackling issues ranging from bullying to teen pregnancy to cancer and death. In 2007, Batiuk was a Pulitzer Prize finalist for “Lisa’s Story,” a story arc in which the character succumbed to cancer. In addition to his work on “Funky,” from 1979-1990 Batiuk wrote the strip “John Darling” and since 1987 has been writing “Crankshaft” for his former classmate Chuck Ayers to draw.

Come meet the creator of one of the nation’s most recognizable comic strips!

Mur Lafferty signs at Chapel Hill Comics on Saturday, June 1, 2013 from 7:00 until 9:00 pm!

RSVP on Facebook!

Press Release:

Chapel Hill Comics is proud to announce that as part of our 10th/35th Anniversary Festivities, we will host a release party for Mur Lafferty’s new book, The Shambling Guide to New York City! The event will be from 7pm until 9pm on Saturday, June 1. What’s the book about? Here you go:

A travel writer takes a job with a shady publishing company in New York, only to find that she must write a guide to the city – for the undead!

Because of the disaster that was her last job, Zoe is searching for a fresh start as a travel book editor in the tourist-centric New York City. After stumbling across a seemingly perfect position though, Zoe is blocked at every turn because of the one thing she can’t take off her resume — human.

Not to be put off by anything — especially not her blood drinking boss or death goddess coworker — Zoe delves deep into the monster world. But her job turns deadly when the careful balance between human and monsters starts to crumble — with Zoe right in the middle.

We’ll have copies of the book on hand, and we’d love you to come down and meet the author! This is a prose novel, not a comic, though it does sport a fantastic cover by noted comic artist Jamie McKelvie!

Plus, check it out: the book is already getting good reviews! Publisher’s Weekly listed The Shambling Guide as one of the best summer books of 2013!

Mur Lafferty is an author and podcaster based in Durham, NC. She is the host of the I Should Be Writing podcast and a two time John W. Campbell Award nominee.
