Sina Grace signs at Things From Another World on Wednesday, November 14, 2012 from 7:00 pm until 10:00 pm.
Writer-artist Sina Grace has created beloved cult-hit comics Li’l Depressed Boy and Not My Bag for Image Comics and worked as editorial director for Robert Kirkman’s Skybound imprint–and he’s visiting Portland! Meet him November 14 at the Portland TFAW for a signing and gallery show from 7 to 10 p.m. Plus, Grace will offer his unique insight into the comics industry with a special Indy Comics Q & A at 7:30! Free food and beer (21+ with valid ID) provided.
Not My Bag is Grace’s semi-autobiographical tale of working in retail hell. A young artist takes a job at a department store in order to make ends meet, but little does he know that he may meet his end! In this gothic story for fans of Persepolis, Blankets, and The Devil Wears Prada, can the artist withstand competitive pressure, treachery, and high fashion while still keeping his soul?
Working on a comic, or thinking about getting started? Grace recently co-headlined the DIY to Image panel at the Tuscon Comic-Con with Li’l Depressed Boy writer S. Steven Struble, offering tips on how creators can get their books noticed. Make sure to bring your questions to TFAW’s Indy Comics Q & A at 7:30 to get practical advice and suggestions from a creator who has immersed himself in nearly every aspect of the comics industry!
The Portland TFAW will have copies of Not My Bag and Li’l Depressed Boy, Grace’s critically acclaimed romance series, for sale, and will also display original pages from Li’l Depressed Boy. Make sure to welcome Grace to Portland November 14!
