NOS4A2 is a spine-tingling novel of supernatural suspense from master of horror Joe Hill, the New York Times bestselling author of Heart-Shaped Box and Horns.
Victoria McQueen has a secret gift for finding things: a misplaced bracelet, a missing photograph, answers to unanswerable questions. On her Raleigh Tuff Burner bike, she makes her way to a rickety covered bridge that, within moments, takes her wherever she needs to go, whether it’s across Massachusetts or across the country.
Charles Talent Manx has a way with children. He likes to take them for rides in his 1938 Rolls-Royce Wraith with the NOS4A2 vanity plate. With his old car, he can slip right out of the everyday world, and onto the hidden roads that transport them to an astonishing – and terrifying – playground of amusements he calls “Christmasland.”
Then, one day, Vic goes looking for trouble—and finds Manx. That was a lifetime ago. Now Vic, the only kid to ever escape Manx’s unmitigated evil, is all grown up and desperate to forget. But Charlie Manx never stopped thinking about Victoria McQueen. He’s on the road again and he’s picked up a new passenger: Vic’s own son.

Writer Jason Ciaramella appears on June 15th at Larry’s Wonderful World of Comics from 5:00 – 8:00pm.
THE CAPE LEGACY EDITION hits shelves on June 15th, and to celebrate the release, Larry’s Wonderful World of Comics in Lowell, MA, is hosting me for the evening. This isn’t going to be a regular, boring old signing with some jerk sitting behind a table while you wait in line. No. Screw that. We’ve got plans, and they’re fucking huge.
Larry’s hosts a local Drink & Draw on Wednesday nights with a different theme each week. The theme for June 15th is going to be THE CAPE, and I’m going to write an original, one-page CAPE script that will be kept secret until the event. Everyone in attendance will have the opportunity to draw my script, and here’s where it gets awesome:
THE DRAWINGS WILL BE COLLECTED, AND THE BEST ONE WILL BE PRINTED IN A FUTURE ISSUE OF THE CAPE.
That’s right. A chance to see your work published in a real-life comic book for people all over the world to see. Not too shabby, eh? You wont get that kind of love from Marvel or DC, I can assure you of that.
Also, for the writers in the group, I’ll be giving a little script writing seminar while the artists are doing their thing. It’s an open forum where I talk about some of the lesser known aspects of script writing, and then take questions. I like it to be more of a discussion, where everyone contributes and offers advice. I know nobody wants to sit and listen to me talk about panel counts for a half-hour, myself included.

Double Midnight Comics hosted their annual Granite State Comicon in Manchester, NH this past Sunday. Despite the wet weather, it was a packed house with several cosplayers showing up in character. Guests included local writers of The Cape Joe Hill and Jason Ciaramella plus artist Zach Howard, who received many well-wishes on their recent Eisner Award nomination. Artist Sean Gordon Murphy talked about his upcoming storyarc on American Vampire and what it was like working with Grant Morrison on Joe the Barbarian. And several contributors, including co-creators Rich Woodall and Adam Miller, from the ZombieBomb Comic Anthology were on hand to meet fans. It may only be a one-day show but supporting local homegrown conventions like this is the best way to encourage them to grow and for retailers to bring in more comic creators for signings. Thanks, Double Midnight!
