Mick Foley signs at Midtown Comics Downtown on Saturday, December 14th at 1:00PM!

Press Release:

Midtown Comics in New York City is excited to welcome WWE® Legend Mick Foley for a special book signing for the launch of his new comic book, WWE® Superstars #1, on Saturday, December 14th, at 1:00pm at Midtown Comics’ Downtown location. This is a limited capacity event for fans who purchase WWE® Superstars #1, and Midtown Comics advises attendees to arrive early, and dress appropriately for cold weather.

During his Hall of Fame career, three-time WWE® champion Mick Foley became one of WWE’s most unlikely success stories under the guise of three distinct personas — the unpredictable Cactus Jack, the demented hippy known as Dude Love and everyone’s favorite mental patient, Mankind. Today, Mrs. Foley’s Baby Boy goes by the name on his birth certificate and is retired from the ring. The adventurous spirit that captured the hearts of fans worldwide, however, shines through in his various creative endeavors. In addition to spending time with his wife and four children, the Hardcore Legend can be found working with several charitable initiatives, delivering one-liners in his live comedy show Tales From Wrestling Past, and immersing himself in his writing. He is the author of an insightful, New York Times-bestselling autobiography “Have a Nice Day: A Tale of Blood and Sweatsocks,” three additional memoirs, four children’s books (Two of which were illustrated by Jill Thompson, another illustrated by Jerry “The King” Lawler), two fiction novels, and now this exciting new comic series WWE® Superstars.

WWE® Superstars #1: Written by Mick Foley with art by Alitha Martinez.

Titan City: A metropolis where everyone’s hiding secrets and there’s no one to trust. In a corrupt world where everyone is looking to cash in, we’ll follow the journey of three men… John Cena’s been framed for a crime he didn’t commit. Randy Orton’s on the verge of achieving citywide power. And CM Punk is determined to bring the whole corrupt system crashing down. From the scheming Southside to the barren desert no man’s land where even the law refuses to go, the powerful factions of Titan City are locked in a battle for control in an unforgettable noir landscape.

NYC – March Signing

march_bk1Congressman John Lewis appears with co-author Andrew Aydin and artist Nate Powell at Midtown Comics Downtown on Thursday, November 7th from 6-7pm to sign MARCH Book One from Top Shelf Productions.

RSVP on Facebook!

Press Release:

Congressman John Lewis (GA-5) is an American icon, one of the key figures of the civil rights movement. In the graphic novel March, Lewis offers a vivid, first-hand memoir of his lifelong struggle for civil and human rights. From his experience growing up on an Alabama sharecropper’s farm to the halls of Congress, from a segregated schoolroom to the 1963 March on Washington, and from receiving beatings from state troopers to receiving the medal of freedom from the first African-American president. Congressman Lewis tells his remarkable story in collaboration with co-writer Andrew Aydin and New York Times bestselling artist Nate Powell.

Book One spans John Lewis’ youth in rural Alabama, his life-changing meeting with Martin Luther King, Jr., the birth of the Nashville Student Movement, and their battle to tear down segregation through nonviolent lunch counter sit-ins, building to a stunning climax on the steps of City Hall.

John Lewis has been an icon of the civil rights movement since his days as a Nashville college student, organizing sit-ins and participating in the first Freedom Rides. As chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), he was the youngest speaker at the 1963 March on Washington and a leader of the 1965 Selma–Montgomery March (known as “Bloody Sunday”), where police brutality spurred national outrage and hastened passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. He has represented Georgia in Congress for over 25 years and recently received the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Following his previous award-winning books Walking with the Wind: A Memoir of the Movement and Across that Bridge: Life Lessons and a Vision for Change, he has joined co-writer Andrew Aydin and artist Nate Powell for the new graphic novel March: Book One, a #1 New York Times Bestseller.

Andrew Aydin, an Atlanta native, currently serves in Rep. John Lewis’ congressional office handling telecommunications and technology policy as well as new media. Previously, he served as communications director and press secretary during Rep. Lewis’ 2008 and 2010 re-election campaigns, as District Aide to Rep. John Larson (D-CT), and as Special Assistant to Connecticut Lt. Governor Kevin Sullivan. Andrew is a graduate of the Lovett School in Atlanta, Trinity College in Hartford, and Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., where his graduate thesis “The Comic Book That Changed the World” examined the history of the 1957 comic book “Martin Luther King & The Montgomery Story.”

Nate Powell is a New York Times best-selling comic book artist/writer born in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1978. He began self-publishing at age 14, and graduated from the School of Visual Arts in 2000. His work includes the critically acclaimed Any Empire, Swallow Me Whole (winner of the Eisner Award and Ignatz Award, finalist for the LA Times Book Prize), The Year of the Beasts, The Silence of Our Friends, and Sounds of Your Name. In addition to March, Powell is also currently drawing the graphic novel adaptation of Rick Riordan’s #1 international bestseller Heroes of Olympus: The Lost Hero, while writing and drawing his own projects.
