OR – Zomburbia Signing

Zomburbia

Press Release:

Bridge City Comics is proud to announce our Zomburbia Signing with Adam Gallardo on Friday, August 29, 2014 from 6:00 – 9:00 pm! This event is free to the public.

While Gallardo has several successful comics series under his belt (Star Wars Infinites: Return of the Jedi, 100 Girls, Gear School) under his belt, this is the first YA novel published by this Salem author! We will have copies available for sale at the event.

On a personal note, Adam has been a friend for a very long time. I’m extremely proud of him and I hope that everyone comes out to support his book. I’ve read an advanced copy and it’s great!

Refreshments will be served free of charge.

About Zomburbia:
Lifeless. Slow-moving. Brain-dead. Welcome To Zomburbia.My name is Courtney Hart, and I’m here to tell you about things that suck. Being born in a podunk town like Salem, Oregon, for one. Living in a world infested with zombies? That, too. And the meat heads I go to school with? I think I’d actually take the undead over them most days. But I have a plan to get out of here and move to New York. I just have to keep selling Vitamin Z along with your fries at The Bully Burger. The secret ingredient? Zombie brains. I’ve noticed things are getting even worse lately, if that’s even possible. The zombies seem to be getting smarter and faster. If I can avoid being arrested, eaten by shufflers, or catching the eye of some stupid boy, I should be able to make it through finals week still breathing. . .

Gene Luen Yang (Boxers & Saints, American Born Chinese) appears at Eastwind Books on Saturday, September 13, 2014 at 3:00 pm to present his latest graphic novel The Shadow Hero!

In the comics boom of the 1940s, a legend was born: the Green Turtle. But this mysterious masked crusader was hiding something more than your run-of-the-mill secret . . . The Green Turtle was the first Asian American superhero.

The original Green Turtle comic only had a short run, but now Gene Luen Yang has revived the character, creating an origin story for a forgotten hero.

Hank just wants to enjoy his quiet life running the family grocery store with his father, but his mother wants him to become a superhero, and to clean up their Chinatown neighborhood! Can he find a way to live the life he wants and not disappoint his mother?

With artwork by Sonny Lieu, this dazzling, funny comics adventure for teens is a new spin on the long, rich tradition of American comics lore.

NYC – Sisters Signing

sisters_cvrCartoonist Raina Telgemeier appears at Book Court on Sunday September 7, 2014 at 4:00 PM to sign her new book SISTERS!

About Sisters:

The companion to Raina Telgemeier’s #1 New York Times bestselling and Eisner Award-winning graphic memoir, Smile.

Raina can’t wait to be a big sister. But once Amara is born, things aren’t quite how she expected them to be. Amara is cute, but she’s also a cranky, grouchy baby, and mostly prefers to play by herself. Their relationship doesn’t improve much over the years, but when a baby brother enters the picture and later, something doesn’t seem right between their parents, they realize they must figure out how to get along. They are sisters, after all.

Raina uses her signature humor and charm in both present-day narrative and perfectly placed flashbacks to tell the story of her relationship with her sister, which unfolds during the course of a road trip from their home in San Francisco to a family reunion in Colorado.

Author Bio:

Raina Telgemeier is the creator of Smile, which was a #1 New York Times bestseller, winner of the Will Eisner Award for Best Publication for Teens, and a Boston Globe-Horn Book Honor Book. She is also the creator of Drama, which was a #1 New York Times bestseller and received a Stonewall Book Award Honor. Raina also adapted and illustrated The Baby-sitters Club graphic novels. She lives in Astoria, New York, with her husband, Dave Roman.
