Davis, CA: Chris Wisnia (Doris Danger: Giant Monsters Amok) Book Signing at Bizarro World

Bizarro World 223 E St, Davis, CA

Catch Chris Wisnia signing copies of his new book, Doris Danger: Giant Monsters Amok, at Bizarro World! About the book: Written and drawn as dead-on homages to the styles of Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko, and Dick Ayers, these 20 stories recount Doris's encounters with such monsters as "Ner-Nee-Nah," "Spwum," "Ho-Chee-Cha," "X, Son of XI," and many more. But this is parody on a meta-level, as "editor" Rob Oder takes you behind the scenes and reveals the secrets behind these comics — the chaos, the "faster-faster/cheaper-cheaper" mentality, the never-ending deadlines, the despicable treatment of writers and artists, the contempt for fans,...

Hanover, NH: Natalie Norris (Dear Mini: A Graphic Memoir, Book One) in conversation with Tillie Walden (On a Sunbeam, Clementine) at Still North Books & Bar

Still North Books & Bar 3 Allen Street, Hanover, NH

"This graphic novel tells a gripping story from the inside perspective of a teenage girl who has both the good and bad luck of resembling an erotic male fantasy. Great read." — Ulli Lust (Today is the Last Day of the Rest of Your Life) "Dear Mini marks the arrival of a major new talent. Through some type of miraculous cartooning alchemy, Natalie Norris has transformed a brutal adolescent trauma into an effervescent and irresistible graphic memoir. I can't recommend this book enough." — James Sturm (Off Season) Don't miss the book launch for this incredible debut, a bittersweet coming...

Brooklyn, NY: Natalie Norris (Dear Mini: A Graphic Memoir, Book One) Book Signing at Desert Island

Desert Island 540 Metropolitan Ave, Brooklyn, NY

Don't miss a book signing with Natalie Norris to celebrate the launch of her debut, Dear Mini: A Graphic Memoir, Book One! About the book: This debut graphic memoir (the first of two books, with Book Two coming in 2025), is a bittersweet coming of age story that chronicles the author’s teenage experiences with sexual assault, PTSD, and resiliency. Dear Mini is not a cautionary tale, however, it is a vivid (at turns hilariously and uncomfortably so) depiction of adolescent agency in the face of trauma, tracing Norris’s journey from wayward wild-child to harnessing her adult voice after almost a...
