NYC – The Search for WondLa Launch Party

Tony DiTerlizzi and special guest Uma Thurman launch a new book at Books of Wonder:

Books of Wonder is truly thrilled to announce that on Wednesday, September 22, TONY DITERLIZZI will be here to launch his fantastic, new book, The Search for WondLa! This is the first book in an incredible trilogy, about a 12-year-old girl named Eva Nine, who has never met another person. Raised in a high-tech, underground sanctuary by a Multi-Utility Task Help Robot (Muthr), Eva has been trained to survive the world outside of sanctuary, though she has never seen it for herself.  When an invader attacks the Sanctuary, forcing Eva to flee to the surface, she discovers the outside world is nothing like she was told it was. Is she on Earth? Or is this some new planet? Eva finds herself on a thrilling quest to find if there are any other humans left and, if not, what happened to her people?

Written and lavishly illustrated in two-colors by Caldecott Honor Book recipient TONY DITERLIZZI, who is best known as the co-author and illustrator of the NY Times best-selling Spiderwick Chronicles, this is a rollicking adventure, mystery, and coming-of-age story you and your young readers will never forget! In support of the Starlight Children’s Foundation, who will receive a portion of the night’s sales, Academy Award-nominated actress, Uma Thurman, will be on hand to introduce TONY DITERLIZZI at 6pm. TONY DITERLIZZI will read from his new book, take questions from the audience, and sign copies of all of his books. So be sure to come and join us for this very exciting launch party to celebrate The Search for WondLa! Ages 9-12. 6-8pm. Refreshments will be served.

Press Release:

Image Comics is proud to announce that SPAWN creator and Image Partner TODD MCFARLANE will appear at Book Expo America (BEA) on Wednesday, May 26, 2010, at the Javits Center in New York City.

Image Comics will be exhibiting with Diamond Book Distributors, booth #4558. McFarlane will be at the booth for an exclusive signing from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday. Complimentary copies of the first HAUNT trade will be available during the signing. Image will also distribute copies of various Image Firsts titles throughout BEA.

“As the comic book culture continues to outgrow its historic roots of the comic book store, a big movement has been made towards book stores,” says McFarlane. “Book stores have now become fertile ground for people like myself, and I need to make sure I get out there, put my best foot forward, in terms of making presentations to the stores and letting retailers know what’s coming out. Now, there’re arguably just as many consumers coming to bookstores for comic product as comic book stores. They’re an extremely important part of our business.”

From budding baseball player to comic book artist extraordinaire to family man, Spawn creator Todd McFarlane has a wealth of experience in the world of entertainment. McFarlane’s road trip to creative autonomy began when he accepted an assignment penciling for Marvel/Epic Comics in March 1984. From there, he worked his way to the top of the talent roster before leaving Marvel to help found Image Comics with six other artists. It was then that Todd introduced his own character, Spawn. In 1994, Todd founded McFarlane Toys. Over the years, the company has become one of the largest, most renowned toy manufacturers in the world.

Don’t miss Todd McFarlane during his one-day-only appearance at BEA on Wednesday, May 26, 2010.

Image Comics is a comic book and graphic novel publisher founded in 1992 by a collective of best-selling artists. Image has since gone on to become one of the largest comics publishers in the United States. Image currently has five partners: Robert Kirkman, Erik Larsen, Todd McFarlane, Marc Silvestri and Jim Valentino.
