CA – America Q&A + Signing

Writer Gabby Rivera appears at Fantastic Comics on Saturday, August 26th for a Q&A and to sign Marvel’s breakthrough hit AMERICA about the first gay Latina superhero, America Chavez.

Press Release:

Fantastic Comics is thrilled to welcome Gabby Rivera, writer of the new fan favorite Marvel series, AMERICA!

Gabby Rivera is the critically acclaimed author of the award-winning YA novel, JULIET TAKES A BREATH. Now she’s bursting onto the comics scene at the helm of America Chavez’s long-awaited solo series.

America has always been incontestably awesome, and as the newly appointed leader of the Ultimates, she’s now officially claimed her place as the preeminent butt-kicker of the Marvel Universe! But while leading a team of heroes and punching out big bads is great and all, it doesn’t really leave much time for self-discovery… So what’s a super-powered teenager do when she’s looking for a little fulfillment? She goes to college! She just has to stop an interdimensional monster or two first, plus shut down a pesky alien cult that’s begun worshipping her exploits!

Here at Fantastic Comics we LOVE America Chavez and we can’t wait to meet Gabby and talk to her about the book.

Join us for a Q&A at 5:00 PM, followed by a signing at 6:00 PM!

CA – Legend of Korra Release Party

Artist Irene Koh appears at Fantastic Comics in Berkeley, CA on Saturday, July 29th from 5:00 – 7:30 PM to celebrate the release of the first LEGEND OF KORRA comic from Dark Horse!

There will be a Q&A with Irene, including some special peeks at the work that went into the first volume of Korra’s continuing story. The Q&A will be followed by a signing. Come pick up your copy of the book and snag some merch from this fantastic fan favorite artist!

Relishing their new relationship, Korra and Asami leave the spirit world . . . but find nothing in Republic City but political high jinks and human vs. spirit conflict! A pompous developer plans to turn the new spirit portal into an amusement park, potentially severing an already tumultuous connection with the spirits. What’s more, the triads have realigned and are in a brutal all-out brawl at the city’s borders-where hundreds of evacuees have relocated!

Written by series co-creator Michael Dante DiMartino and drawn by Irene Koh (Secret Origins: Batgirl, Afrina and the Glass Coffin), with consultation by Bryan Konietzko, this is the official continuation of The Legend of Korra!
