Award-winning comics writer Ed Brubaker comes to the Booksmith on Monday, October 24 at 7:30 PM to celebrate the release of the deluxe edition of The Fade Out; the epic graphic novel of murder, intrigue, and morality in blacklist-era Hollywood, illustrated by Sean Phillips and colored by Elizabeth Breitweiser. This beautiful oversized hardback edition collects issues #1-12 and includes behind-the-scenes extras, sketches, layouts, illustrations, and historical essays.
Ed Brubaker has won the Best Writer Award in the Harveys and the Eisners five times since 2006. His work with Sean Phillips on Criminal, Incognito, Fatale, and The Fade Out has been translated around the world to great acclaim. He was raised partly on Navy bases, and credits being forced to go to his mother’s AA meetings throughout much of his childhood with planting the seed of writing in his brain, and his father’s love of comics and movies for nurturing it. He currently lives in Los Angeles with his wife Melanie and their dog Roscoe, where he works in comics, film, and television.

Paolo Rivera became a household name with Marvel on their Mythos series as well as Amazing Spider-Man.

He also worked for Valiant and most recently on Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. 1953.

We have opened pre-signup lists on a first come first serve basis for Roland, Max, Goran, and Dalibor and the pieces must be picked up at NYCC. Artist Alley Table locations will be posted closer to the show date.
While Lee Bermejo will not have his own table, he’ll be at the show for a limited time so he’s taking TWO pre-order convention sketches.
The details for all of these opportunities can be seen here at the link…
I will be bringing a limited amount of art with me, primarily for artists that will be with me at the show. If you want to purchase something and have us bring it to NYCC for pickup, we’d be happy to do so!

Check out more about this fantastic book here. Remender is a long time friend of the shop, he co-founded the Isotope’s famous Comic Rockstars Toilet Seat Museum and was our featured guest at our very first event ever, so we couldn’t be excited to have him back and as part of one of our most superstar-laden years ever!
