BOOM! Studios Hits BookExpo America/BookCon

Press Release:

BOOM! Studios is pleased to announce it will exhibit at BookExpo America, a leading trade show for the book publishing industry attended by publishers, distributors, authors, bookstore owners, librarians, journalists, and more; and BookCon, a two-day fan event open to the book-loving public. The shows take place back-to-back at the Javits Center in New York City May 31st to June 4th, with BOOM! occupying booth #1530. The publisher shared its plans for the events, including:

—During BookExpo and BookCon, BOOM! will have limited quantities of free single issues available to give away to librarians, reviewers, buyers, and fans while supplies last, including recent releases Misfit City #1 (Vol. 1 collection out in December) and Victor LaValle’s Destroyer #1 (collection out in January). Kiwi Smith and Kurt Lustgarten (Misfit City) and Victor LaValle will be appearing throughout the week to autograph copies.

The latest release from BOOM!’s BOOM! Box imprint, Misfit City is about a group of girls living in a small coastal town that most people have only heard of because it was the filming location for a beloved kids’ adventure movie from the 1980s. They’re sick of their town and the tourists that come to gawk at them, but they end up discovering a real treasure map, which leads them on an adventure even crazier than the one in the movie. Misfit City is illustrated by Naomi Franquiz.

In Victor LaValle’s Destroyer, when the last descendant of the Frankenstein family loses her only son to a police shooting, she turns to science for her own justice…putting her on a crash course with her family’s original monster and his quest to eliminate humanity. The series is illustrated by Dietrich Smith.

—BOOM! will also have limited advance copies of its KaBOOM! imprint’s upcoming original graphic novel, The Not-So Secret Society (August 1), available for free to qualified individuals. The creators of the book—Matt Daley, Arlene Daley, Ellen Crafts, and Trevor Crafts—will be on hand all week to autograph copies and share brochures, activity sheets, and mini-comics, and will raffle off a giant Gummy candy! (See booth for details.) The Not-So Secret Society is illustrated by Wook Jin Clark.

In addition, the creators of The Not-So Secret Society will appear at the BookCon Family HQ area (booth #1416) on Saturday, June 3, 5:30-6:00 PM for an interactive comics workshop.

The Not-So Secret Society is about a group of 12-year-olds who learn the value of teamwork and friendship when their invention brings a piece of candy to life that threatens to destroy the entire city!

—Free partial advance review galleys of the Archaia imprint’s upcoming all-ages original graphic novel Bolivar (November 21) will also be available for qualified individuals, with writer and artist Sean Rubin on hand to autograph copies.

Bolivar is the story of a dinosaur living unnoticed in New York City (“Everyone in the city was too busy to notice Bolivar was a dinosaur”), except for his young neighbor, Sybil, who desperately tries to convince everyone of his existence.
