Press Release:

The Beguiling and First Second Books are proud to welcome PAUL POPE back to Toronto, to launch his brand new graphic novel series BATTLING BOY! Pope is the renowned creator of personal works including THB, 100%, and Heavy Liquid, but also takes time out to bring his unique verve and visual sophistication to a range of superhero properties in the titles Batman Year 100, Strange Tales, and Spider-Man: Tangled Web! Now he has returned with BATTLING BOY, a straight-up, kick-butt superhero book for kids and grown-ups alike, and The Beguiling and Revival will be hosting him on the evening of Tuesday, October 15th at 7PM!

BATTLING BOY is the story of a boy who must rise to the challenge of defending the super-city of Arcopolis after suffering a tremendous personal loss. An epic adventure with visual nods to classic creators including Moebius and Jack Kirby, BATTLING BOY is an ultra-contemporary take on the heroes’ journey, and a stunning addition to the pantheon of young adult heroes!

Becky Cloonan (Demo, Pixu)!

Michael Kupperman (Tales Designed To Thrizzle)!

Jeffrey Brown (Clumsy, Mini-Sulk)!

Challengers!

Chicago Comics!

THE BIGGEST EVENT YOU’VE EVER SEEN (on March 6th)!

Challengers and Chicago Comics are pleased to bring you STRANGE TALES SATURDAY: A full-day, two-store celebration of the new Strange Tales hardcover from Marvel.  Your bestest day ever kicks off at Challengers at 1pm, with a one-hour Panel Q+A featuring all three creators.  Then it’s a signing with Michael, Becky and Jeffrey at Challengers from 2pm-4pm.  BUT IT DOESN’T STOP THERE!  The fun moves over to Chicago Comics at 6pm, with another two-hour signing with Mr. Kupperman, Ms. Cloonan and Mr. Brown, followed by a “will wreck your Sunday” AFTERPARTY at 8pm.

Should be an amazing day of comics, conversation, celebration and commuting.  One note, though.  Purchase of a Strange Tales hardcover from EITHER store the week of signing (with receipt as proof) is required to attend the signing.  You’re welcome to bring MORE items to get signed (and we’ll have other books if you need ‘em), but you will be required to purchase a copy of the STRANGE TALES hardcover at either Challengers or Chicago Comics, and if you get it before the event, just bring your receipt with you.  Cool?  Thanks!

THIS JUST IN: Paul Hornschemeier joins the signing!!
