Bridge City Comics is proud to announce our Lady Sabre Kickstarter Release Party with Greg Rucka, Rick Burchett and Eric Newsom on Saturday, April 5, 2014 from 5pm – 8pm! This event is free to the public.
If you live in the Pacific Northwest, this is your opportunity to pick up your Lady Sabre Kickstarter rewards directly from the creative team! If you are a backer and want to pick up your book in person, maybe hang out and chat for a while or simply point and stare, you are cordially — even eagerly — invited to come and do so. Greg, Rick and Eric will be on hand to hand out the backer rewards, sign any rewards you want and hang out and talk lady Sabre (among other things).
Depending on the final inventory count, and presuming that they have enough extra to justify it, there may be additional copies for sale, prices TBD.
Refreshments will be served free of charge. Sketches will be at the discretion of the artist.
About LADY SABRE:
Swords are cool. People fighting with swords are cool. Airships are cool. Cowboys are cool. Pirates are cool. Clockwork men are cool. Smart, savvy, witty women are very cool. Laconic gunslingers? Totally cool. Steampunk? Frosty. That’s what Lady Sabre & the Pirates of the Ineffable Aether is, that’s what it’s about. The adventures of the Lady Seneca Sabre and those she meets along the way as she travels the Sphere. Who she fights, who she foils, who she befriends. It’s about adventure and romance and excitement and, to paraphrase the great Zaphod Beeblebrox, “really wild things.” And most of all, what it’s supposed to be? It’s supposed to be fun.
