MA – Normal: A Novel Signing

Author Warren Ellis (Planetary, Moon Knight) appears in conversation with Joe Hill (NOS4A2, The Fireman) at the Brookline Booksmith on Wednesday November 30th at 7:00 pm.

Some people call it “abyss gaze.” Gaze into the abyss all day and the abyss will gaze into you. There are two types of people who think professionally about the future: Foresight strategists who think about ways to evade Our Coming Doom; and strategic forecasters, who think about ways to prepare for Our Coming Doom. It’s something you can’t do for long. The abyss gaze takes hold. A smart, tight, provocative techno-thriller straight out of the very near future Normal calls into question the core principles of how and why we think about the future–and the past, and the now.

Comments Off on Choker Creators Coast-to-Coast Tour

Comic artist Ben Templesmith (30 Days of Night, Fell) and writer Ben McCool are on tour to promote their new title, Choker. Templesmith writes on his blog, “This year, you pretty much won’t be able to escape me. (Sorry.) In addition to all these dates for CHOKER #1 and #2, I’ll also be around Chicago for C2E2 as well as NYCC and Heroes Con down in North Carolina. And of course, the big one, SDCC.” He goes on to say that McCool will be on hand for several of the appearances as well. There’s a guarantee of at least one Ben per signing!

 Larry’s Comics in Lowell, MA commissioned an exclusive variant cover of the first issue (pictured at right). It has been delayed because of a printing error but New England fans should be on the lookout for it to get signed at Templesmith’s appearance at Boston Comic Con in April.
