Press Release:

Things From Another World is proud to announce that acclaimed artist Colleen Coover (Gingerbread Girl) will show all 13 pages of Bandette, her new ongoing digital series for MonkeyBrain Comics with Paul Tobin (Falling Skies, Amazing Spider-Girl), at the Portland TFAW this August! Come to a gallery reception August 10 from 7 to 10 p.m. for your chance to see the original art for this incredible series, while enjoying free food and beer (for those 21+). The first 100 attendees will receive a free, limited-edition Bandette print!

The debut of digital publisher MonkeyBrain Comics has generated a lot of excitement this summer, and fans have flipped for Bandette, a charming mix of Tintin and Nancy Drew, with a few costumes thrown in! Bandette is leader of a group of urchins dedicated to serving justice, except when thieving is a bit more fun. Follow her and her crew, as they join forces and cross swords with the master thief known only as Monsieur, and one B.D. Belgique, perhaps the most harassed police inspector of all time.

Artist Colleen Coover is a member of Portland, Oregon’s Periscope Studio and well-known for her expressive, vivacious style. She burst onto the scene with the lesbian-themed erotic comic book Small Favors for Eros Comix, and has gone on to contribute to Marvel Comics’ Amazing Spider-Girl, Girl Comics, X-Men First Class, and more. She previously collaborated with her husband, Paul Tobin, on Gingerbread Girl, a tale of magical realism, for Top Shelf Publishing.

The Portland TFAW is the only place you can see the original art for Bandette! Make sure to get there early to receive a free, limited-edition Bandette print exclusive to this event and get it signed by the creators. See you August 10!
