bb-traw

UPDATE: Unfortunately, this event has been cancelled. 

Paul Pope appears at Secret Headquarters on Saturday October 4th at 7:00 PM to sign

Press Release:

Come join Secret Headquarters in celebrating the release of a great new book with one of our favorite creators!

The extraordinary world introduced in Paul Pope’s Battling Boy is rife with monsters and short on heroes… but in this action-driven extension of the Battling Boy universe, we see it through a new pair of eyes: Aurora West, daughter of Arcopolis’s last great hero, Haggard West.

A prequel to Battling Boy, The Rise of Aurora West follows the young hero as she seeks to uncover the mystery of her mother’s death, and to find her place in a world overrun with supernatural monsters and all-too-human corruption. With a taut, fast-paced script from Paul Pope and JT Petty and gorgeous, kinetic art from David Rubin, The Rise of Aurora West (the first of two volumes) is a tour de force in comics storytelling.

Paul Pope is the acclaimed author-illustrator of Batman: Year 100, Heavy Liquid, and 100%. Known for his frenetic, high-energy artwork and action-packed, genre-bending storytelling, Pope has won three Eisner Awards. He lives and works in New York City. His first graphic novel for kids, Battling Boy, was a #1 New York Times Best-Seller.

Cartoonist Brian Ralph appears at Secret Headquarters on Wednesday, September 11th from 7-9 PM with Drawn & Quarterly for an evening to celebrate the launch of the highly-anticipated Reggie-12, a hilarious pop-culture send-up of the infallible boy hero first presented in the seminal Asian culture magazine Giant Robot. The Cave-In and Daybreak author will be presenting a hilarious slide show with a signing to follow.

Reggie-12 is a young robot with endless enthusiasm. He lives with a bumbling sad-sack friend, a wise-cracking cat, and a well-meaning but forgetful inventor. Laughs explode from the page in this work, which reinterprets classic Japanese adventure manga through Brian Ralph’s trademark style. Come along for a wild ride with Reggie-12, Casper, and Professor Tinkerton as they eat pizza, play video games, and get dissed by bad guys.

CA – Dark Country Signing

Tom Jane signs at Secret Headquarters on Friday October 12, 2012 at 7:00 pm.

Press Release:

Please join us on Friday, October 12 to celebrate the release of Dark Country, the graphic novel based on the Thomas Jane film.

In 2007, actor/filmmaker Thomas Jane went off to New Mexico to film his noir/suspense film, Dark Country, a twisted, psycho-noir about a couple forced to deal with a dead body en route from Vegas. The result was a mind bending, idiosyncratic, EC Comic-style ride into the noirish landscape of damnation. In an effort to create a new experience, Jane had the artist adapt the original short story by Tab Murphy that inspired the film. Thomas Ott’s adaptation is presented in his signature ‘silent’ format, with Tab Murphy’s original short story immediately following the sequential art. Also included is a 40 page bonus section packed with pre-visualization art, production photography, and marketing art and design.

So join us next Friday, have a drink, grab a book, and meet Mr. Jane!

CA – Jonny Negron Art Show

Comments Off

Press Release:

Secret Headquarters is extremely excited to announce an art show and book release party with the one and only Jonny Negron on Friday October 5th at 7:00pm! SHQ will be his only stop in Los Angeles, so this is your chance to meet the man. Come grab a drink, a copy of his killer new book and, if you’re lucky, one of the gorgeous pieces of art that will be for sale.
From PictureBox: An acclaimed “master of voluptuousness” in the tradition of Robert Crumb and Tom of Finland, his highly erotic drawings occupy a space that draws from fashion drawings, video games, manga, and street art. Negron is his first book and explores the ample proportions of his vision. It features all-new drawings and comics. This is a guide to his brave new world, produced in as lush a package as the women in his work: printed on high-gloss paper, this dust-jacketed paperback is an art object unto itself.
