OR – Multiple Warheads: Ghost Throne Launch Party

Press Release:

Acclaimed cartoonist Brandon Graham (Island, Prophet, King City) will release MULTIPLE WARHEADS: GHOST THRONE, a one-shot to complete the series, this February from Image Comics. We welcome him to Floating World on Thursday, March 1st, from 6-9pm for a book signing and art exhibit to celebrate this landmark comic.

MULTIPLE WARHEADS: GHOST THRONE is the culmination of the MULTIPLE WARHEADS chapters serialized in ISLAND, in which our heroes finally make good on their wizard heist plans.

“I started drawing these characters and the world they live in 2001, letting the story go wherever felt like the most fun,” said Graham. “It’s been interesting to try to pull the threads of it into an ending, getting this meandering vacation of a comic to a fantasy heist culmination—while still letting myself get sidetracked by fun new ideas that I stumble into along the way.”

In 1992, Image Comics changed the face of the comic book industry and now–more than 25 years later–Image Comics continues to inspire creativity and foster innovation. In 2013, that tradition continued with the launch of IMAGE EXPO, an all-day event for fans, the retailer community, and the press to experience a showcase of exciting Image Comics announcements. Since then IMAGE EXPO has garnered mainstream news coverage and an industry reputation as one of the most newsworthy events of the year. IMAGE EXPO continues to grow in reach and influence.

IMAGE EXPO will be held at Leftbank Annex. The Leftbank Annex brings a sleek and well-coordinated event infrastructure to the raw, industrial ethic of a pre-war building. Through a skeleton of timber, concrete, brick, and steel, you’ll find large projectable surfaces, controlled lighting, superb access, and outstanding electrical infrastructure.

About Bingo Love:
When Hazel Johnson and Mari McCray met at church bingo in 1963, it was love at first sight. Forced apart by their families and society, Hazel and Mari both married young men and had families. Decades later, now in their mid-’60s, Hazel and Mari reunite again at a church bingo hall. Realizing their love for each other is still alive, what these grandmothers do next takes absolute strength and courage. From Tee Franklin (Nailbiter’s The Outfit, Love is Love) and Jenn St-Onge (Jem & The Misfits), Bingo Love is a touching story of love, family, and resiliency that spans over 60 years.
