Comments Off on CA – Penny Dora and The Wishing Box Signing
Michael Stock, Sina Grace, and Hope Larson sign Penny Dora and The Wishing Box on Wednesday, November 5th at 7:00 PM.
Image Comics’ PENNY DORA & THE WISHING BOX – Once upon a time, “Part Time Punks” DJ and writer Michael Stock and artist Sina Grace (BURN THE ORPHANAGE, LI’L DEPRESSED BOY) conjured up a story about the ever-curious Penny Dora and the unexpected gift that arrives on her doorstep in PENNY DORA & THE WISHING BOX. This new fantasy adventure series will begin in November from Image Comics with a special 28-page first issue.
One day, a young girl named Penny Dora discovers a mysterious box on her front doorstep. It is a magic box with the power to grant wishes…but what she’s about to unwrap is the darker and creepier meaning behind the old adage, “be careful what you wish for.”
Stock cited his daughter for first inspiring him to write about Penny Dora’s adventures. “Penny Dora is actually based on a story my daughter Nico wrote when she was 8 years old for her school paper. The first issue is basically an expansion of her original story. S
ince then the story has grown through talks we had in the car on the way to school in the mornings via a playful papa/daughter back and forth game of ‘what if.’ The cat in the book, Iggy, is based on our cat (also named Iggy, and also a great lover of ham).”
Grace added: “The minute I read Michael’s scripts for the series, I was absolutely enchanted by Penny Dora and her world. It’s been a dream to breathe life into the adventures of fantastic and charming characters. I can’t wait for the world to see!”
PENNY DORA & THE WISHING BOX is an whimsical retelling of the Pandora myth and an all-ages fantasy adventure perfect for fans of Neil Gaiman’s Coraline and Ted Naifeh’s Courtney Crumrin. Eisner Award winning cartoonist Hope Larson (A Wrinkle In Time, Mercury) provides the alternate cover for the 1st issue and lettering for the series.

Hope Larson signs at Chapel Hill Comics on Sunday October 7, 2012 from 2:00 – 7:00 pm.
Chapel Hill Comics is proud to announce our next big signing event: On Sunday, October 7, from 2pm until 4pm, cartoonist Hope Larson will sign her new graphic novel adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time!
The world already knows Meg and Charles Wallace Murry, Calvin O’Keefe, and the three Mrs-Who, Whatsit, and Which-the memorable and wonderful characters who fight off a dark force and save our universe in the Newbery award-winning classic A Wrinkle in Time. But in 50 years of publication, the book has never been illustrated. Now, Hope Larson takes the classic story to a new level with her vividly imagined interpretations of tessering and favorite characters like the Happy Medium and Aunt Beast. Perfect for old fans and winning over new ones, this graphic novel adaptation is a must-read.
Hope Larson is the author of four graphic novels, including Mercury and Chiggers. Her short comics have been featured on the Op-Ed page of the New York Times and in several anthologies, notably the Flight series and Image Comics’ Tori Amos-inspired Comic Book Tattoo.
Hope has been nominated for cartooning awards in the US, Canada and Europe, and is the recipient of a 2006 Ignatz Award and a 2007 Eisner Award. She holds a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
Come meet Hope and pick up a copy of the graphic novel! It should be a blast!
Note: This signing takes place during Chapel Hill’s annual downtown festival, Festifall. There will be a lot going on, and it’ll be tons of fun, but you should plan your visit to the store accordingly!
