At the end of May I’ll be doing another signing in greater Los Angeles, thanks to Ed Greenberg and the other kind folks at Collector’s Paradise!
That’s right: on Saturday, May 26th, from 12:00 noon to 3:00 p.m., Collector’s Paradise will be hosting a signing of Hand of Fire at its Valley store: 7131 Winnetka Ave, Canoga Park, California 91306 (Google Map available here), phone 818-999-9455.
May 26th is a big day at the Paradise. It’s the day of a “Buy 2, Get 1 Free” sale on hardcover books. It’s also the climax of CP’s month-long series of events, Free Comic Book May, which began on May 5th (Free Comic Book Day) and continues for four Saturdays in a row. Customers who come to the shop every Saturday in May and are carrying a Stamp Card qualify for free items on those days (for details about this promotion, see here). Naturally, CP is also holding a sale on every one of those days.
Wow—such enticements! But of course you don’t have to have come to any of the previous Saturdays to buy a signed copy of Hand of Fire on May 26th. Fear not—just walk right in and look for the man with the halo of Kirby krackle and the fiery red pen!
I’m delighted to be doing an event at a store that I’ve come to know and respect over the past year, one of L.A.’s busiest and most innovative comic shops. Thanks to several of my students for pointing me to the Paradise! I hope I get to see some of you there.
