  • OR – Marc Bell & Anders Nilsen Book Launch

    fwc0714

    Press Release:

    Acclaimed cartoonists Marc Bell (Stroppy,) and Anders Nilsen (Poetry is Useless) will be at Floating World Comics on Tuesday July 14th, from 6-8pm reading from and signing their new Drawn & Quarterly books!

    Marc Bell will be discussing his first full-length graphic novella, Stroppy, which paints a strange and wordplay-loving world in which the titular hero hopes to win big in a songwriting contest organized by the All-Star Schnauzer Band. Mishap and hilarity ensue as Bell explodes the divide between fine art, doodling, and comics. Anders Nilsen will talk about Poetry is Useless, an expansive, beautifully-packaged collection of his sketchbooks. Poetry is Useless is part travelogue, part commentary on politics and culture, and part conversational ping-pong match.

    Marc Bell was born in London, Ontario, and has befuddled and bemused his readers for almost twenty years. He is the author of Hot Potatoe, Pure Pajamas, and Shrimpy and Paul and Friends. His comics have appeared in many Canadian weeklies, Vice, and LA Weekly. He is a twin.

    Anders Nilsen is an award-winning cartoonist and visual artist. He is the author of several books, including Don’t Go Where I Can’t Follow, Rage of Poseidon, and the magnum opus Big Questions, for which he was awarded the 2012 Lynd Ward Graphic Novel Prize by the Pennsylvania Center for the Book and was nominated for the top prize at the Angoulême International Comics Festival. Nilsen has exhibited his drawing and painting internationally. He lives and works in Minneapolis.

    OR – Mike’s Place Signing

    mikesplaceArtist Koren Shadmi appears at Floating World Comics on Friday, June 12, 2015 from 5:00 – 7:00 pm to sign Mike’s Place.

    Koren Shadmi is an illustrator and cartoonist whose graphic novels have been published in France, Italy, Spain, Israel, and the US. His illustrations have won several awards from the Society of Illustrators, and Charles Burns selected his work for The Best American Comics 2009 anthology.

    ABOUT MIKE’S PLACE:
    There’s a rule at Mike’s Place: never, ever talk politics or religion. At this blues bar on the Tel Aviv beachfront, an international cast of characters mingles with the locals, and everyone is welcome to grab a beer and forget the conflict outside. At least, that’s the story Jack and Joshua want to tell in their documentary.

    But less than a month after they begin filming, Mike’s Place is the target of a deadly suicide bombing. Jack, Joshua, and the Mike’s Place family survive the only way they know how-by keeping the camera rolling.

    Written by filmmakers Jack Baxter and Joshua Faudem and illustrated by award-winning cartoonist Koren Shadmi, Mike’s Place chronicles the true story of an infamous terrorist attack in painstaking detail. Rarely has the slow build to tragedy, and the rebirth that follows, been captured with such a compassionate and unflinching eye.

    OR – Wuvable Oaf Signing

    wuvable-oaf-tourPress Release:

    Celebrate the release of the WUVABLE OAF HC on June 4th from 6-8 PM with an art exhibit and book signing with Ed Luce.

    Like Sex and the City but with adorable, ex-wrestler hairy gay men (or bears), Wuvable Oaf is Luce’s debut graphic novel. This book fills a romance comics hole by portraying a likeable gay male character that is both fully realized and relatable. Mostly playful, but sometimes serious, Wuvable Oaf captures the levity of loneliness. Luce delivers a rom-com that would leave Zack Galifianakis and Zooey Deschanel feuding over who got to play Oaf in a hypothetical movie adaptation.

    Oaf is a large, hirsute, scary-looking ex-wrestler who lives in San Francisco with his adorable kitties, and listens to a lot of Morrissey. The book follows Oaf’s search for love in the big city, especially his pursuit of Eiffel, the lead singer of the black metal/queercore/progressive disco grindcore band Ejaculoid. Luce weaves friends, associates, enemies, ex-lovers, and the pasts of both men into the story of their courtship. Like Scott Pilgrim, Love and Rockets, and Archie, Wuvable Oaf explores the joys and pains of romantic conquests, set against the backdrop of the San Francisco scene. After decades of comics about boy-loves-girl, Luce finally gives readers of all orientations some insight into man-loves-man. Oaf’s silly, sweet, and sometimes sexy stories will win over everyone’s heart.

    Customers who buy the book get a free signed Bookplate designed by Ed Luce especially for this event!

    OR – FCBD: SuperMutant Magic Academy Signing

    fwc_fcbd2015sm

    Join best-selling author Jillian Tamaki (Skim, This One Summer) at Floating World Comics on Saturday, May 2nd, at 2:00 pm, for Free Comic Book Day! Jillian will be signing copies of her new Drawn and Quarterly graphic novel, SuperMutant Magic Academy. We will also have lots of copies of her Free Comic Book Day special on hand.

    SuperMutant Magic Academy paints a teenage world that is moody and ennui-filled but also wry and irreverent: the SuperMutant Magic Academy is a prep-school for mutants and witches but their paranormal abilities take a back seat to everyday teen concerns. Wendy, Marsha, Cheddar, Frances, and the other students will be your guides through the D&D games, performance art, unrequited crushes, and spell class tests that are the staples of life at the Academy.

    BIO:
    Jillian Tamaki is a Canadian cartoonist and illustrator. She is the co-creator of the graphic novel Skim (with Mariko Tamaki), which was listed as one of the New York Times’ Best Illustrated Books of 2008 and was nominated for four Eisner Awards.

    OR – Little Nemo: Dream Another Dream Signing

    nemo

    Craig Thompson and Farel Dalrymple appear at Floating World Comics on Thursday February 5, 2015 to sign Little Nemo: Dream Another Dream! The party runs from 6-10 PM but Craig Thompson will be signing from 8-9pm only.

    Press Release: 

    Winsor McCay was perhaps the greatest cartoonist of all time, and the Sunday newspaper strip Little Nemo in Slumberland is his most enduring creation. Detailing the adventures of its titular character in The Land of Wonderful Dreams, the early twentieth century opus is one of the most inventive and visually stunning works of American art. A century later, the comic medium is still racing to keep up with the richness, draftsmanship, imagination, and wonder of McCay’s fantastic storytelling and wild Slumberland universe.

    In Locust Moon Press’ new anthology LITTLE NEMO: DREAM ANOTHER DREAM, many of the world’s finest cartoonists have paid tribute to the master and his masterpiece by creating new Little Nemo strips, following their own voices down paths lit by McCay. Contributors include Paul Pope, JH Williams III, Bill Sienkiewicz, David Mack, Carla Speed McNeil, Charles Vess, Peter Bagge, Dean Haspiel, Farel Dalrymple, Marc Hempel, Nate Powell, P. Craig Russell, Jeremy Bastian, Jim Rugg, Ron Wimberly, Scott Morse, David Petersen, J.G. Jones, Mike Allred, Dean Motter, Yuko Shimizu, Roger Langridge, and Mark Buckingham, among many others.

    Published in the fall of 2014 as a hardcover book at the full size of the original Little Nemo broadsheet pages (16″ x 21″), this book will celebrate McCay’s endless legacy, chart his influence on generations of modern cartoonists, and most of all shine a light back on an artist who has given his art form so much, and whose work should be more widely known.

    This is a love song for Winsor McCay, Little Nemo, and the limitless possibilities of comics. Join artists Craig Thompson and Farel Dalrymple on Thursday Feb. 5th for an art exhibit and get copies of this beautiful book signed. We will also have exclusive giclee prints of Craig and Farel’s pages for sale. We’ll have over a dozen original pages from the book on display from artists including: David Mack, Cole Closser, Alexis Ziritt, Dave Bullock, Aaron Conley, Mark Mariano, Daniel Elisi, Benjamin Marra, Tom Scioli, Weshoyot Alvitre, JG Jones, Dave Chisholm, Ron Wimberly and Jeffro Kilpatrick!
