CLASS IS IN SESSION!
COMIC BOOKS 101 SIGNING!
SATURDAY, JUNE 20, 12 pm- 2 pm!

Earth-2 Comics’ affiliate site, Comics 101.com, has hit the big time, with the publication of the new book COMIC BOOKS 101, written by Chris Ryall and Scott Tipton! NEWSARAMA called the book “…a perfect resource for the hardcore fan, the curious dabbler, or the abject non-believer who we all seek to convert to the cause.”

We’ll be celebrating the release of the book on Saturday, June 20, from 12 pm to 2 pm, at our Sherman Oaks location, with authors Chris Ryall and Scott Tipton in the house to sign books and talk comics. Come on down, get your book signed and get your questions answered by two guys who know way too much about comics!

Comic Books 101 features an all-new introduction from comic-book great Stan Lee, and includes all-new sidebar contributions from Clive Barker, Joe Casey, Paul Dini, Joe Hill, Brian Lynch, Gene Simmons, Mark Waid, Marv Wolfman, and many more, including Earth-2’s own Jud Meyers and Carr D’Angelo! Harlan Ellison contributed a brand-new, 1,500-word recollection detailing the first comic book he ever read as the book’s “outroduction.” The book also features many all-new chapter illustrations and cartoon images from artists like Mark Engblom, David Messina, and Nick Roche, dozens upon dozens of images of classic covers, characters, and creators, and a cover by Locke & Key artist Gabriel Rodriguez.

“It’s been a pleasure to assemble Comic Books 101 for many reasons, not least of which was the chance to get recollections and remembrances from so many creators we’ve long admired,” said 101 co-writer Chris Ryall. “The book offers plenty of entertaining stories for longtime fans as well as offering new fans or comic-curious folks an easy, illustrated intro to all facets of the industry. If you want to know who Western Publishing is, where Superman — and his creators — came from, the different types of manga, the differences between a comic and a graphic novel or which TV and movie adaptations were the best and the worst, all of that and so much more is right here in this book.”

“The motivation behind the column has always been a simple one,” asserted 101 co-writer Tipton. “Introduce new readers to the world of comics with entertaining history lessons that celebrate both the grand and the goofy, the silly and the sublime. Comic Books 101 allows us to take that philosophy to the next step, with both a more detailed historical approach and ‘Guest Lectures’ from some of the biggest names in comics and popular culture.”
