CA – Capture Creatures Vol. 1 Book Signing

Becky Dreistadt and Frank Gibson appear at  Gallery Nucleus on Saturday, March 3rd at 7:00 PM to sign the first ever trade paperback collection of their playful and fully-painted comic, Capture Creatures Volume 1.

About the Book:
100 creatures appear on earth. You’re gonna wanna capture them all!

Tamzen isn’t happy: her dad is always busy in his lab, she doesn’t exactly have a lot of friends, and to top it off, she’s in trouble with the Rangers for going off into the wilderness without permission. But when a creature unlike anything she’s ever seen appears unexpectedly in the forest, Tamzen sets off on an adventure with lab intern Jory and Ranger Teddy in search of answers…and what they find may be more than they can handle alone. Join the unlikeliest team of heroes ever on this beautiful, mysterious journey through a very wild world.

From the blockbuster team of Frank Gibson and Becky Dreistadt (Tiny Kitten Teeth), and featuring brilliant color work from Katy Farina (Steven Universe, Rick & Morty) comes a fully-painted comic book that takes kids deep into the mysterious world of the Capture Creatures!

About the Artists:
Becky Dreistadt grew up wanting to be the very best, like no one ever was. Driven by her love of cartoons and animals, she has set out on a quest taking her from her home in Virginia, to school in Georgia, to life in New Zealand and now to ply her craft in Los Angeles.

Primarily a comic artist, Dreistadt’s work has been displayed in numerous galleries from Los Angeles to New York to New Zealand and Japan. She is mostly known for her online hand-painted comic Tiny Kitten Teeth and its cute companion piece Tigerbuttah. Her work has appeared on comic and poster projects with Adventure Time, animation with Yo Gabba Gabba and the fantasy comic Lookouts with Penny Arcade.
