More exciting news—and not a moment too soon!
Right on the heels of The Comics Journal‘s spirited roundtable about Hand of Fire, Brave New World Comics, my local, Eisner Spirit Award-winning shop—and one of my favorite haunts in greater Los Angeles—is hosting a signing for Hand of Fire this very afternoon!
Yes! Today, Saturday, May 12th, from 3:00pm to 5:00pm, Brave New World, in the yellow Victorian building at 22722 Lyons Avenue, Newhall, CA 91321, will be hosting Kirbyana with a vengeance. Read all about it at BNW’s ever-busy Facebook page!
I’ll be previewing and reading from Hand of Fire, discussing the book’s major themes, and revealing a bit of how the book came to be—then taking questions, chewing the fat, and personalizing copies. Once again, in fiery red ink!
It’s a great pleasure to do a signing at a shop that I respect and that has been such an important part of my comics buying and reading life over the past decade. Brave New World is a genuine innovator in comics retailing, and a friendly, welcoming, super-smart shop. I hope some of you, my readers, can make it there today! You can find directions to the shop here.
Looking forward to meeting you!
And thanks to Portlyn Freeman of BNW for setting this up!
Just back from the Brave New World signing. A delightful, low-key time, with plenty of conversation! Thanks to Peter, Jeff, and Cathy (Kathy?) for their interest, to Mich, as always, for being there with me, and to Portlyn and Ben for setting up everything. I’ve discovered that I love talking to people about Kirby!
Thanks again, BNW!
