Skylight Books 1818 N Vermont Ave, Los Angeles, CA

Don't miss the book launch for The Agency by Katie Skelly! Each of the sex-positive short stories in this comics collection stars an agent who will go far-out (real far-out, like outer space) to accomplish her mission.

In The Agency, Skelly’s agents gather intelligence, meticulously documenting a universe of sass photography, fascist surgery, horny skeletons, yonic portals, thrill-seeking vegetation, and multitudinous wry glances and stammered phrases! Each story in The Agency...

A-1 Comics 818 Sunrise Ave, Roseville, CA

To celebrate Free Comic Book Day, Chris Wisnia will be signing copies of his iconic new book, Doris Danger: Giant Monsters Amok at A-1 Comics--don't miss it! 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...

Portland, OR: Daria Tessler (Salome’s Last Dance) Comics Reading and Signing with Sean Christensen at Floating World Comics

Floating World Comics 1223 Lloyd Center, Portland, OR

"Tessler is a maximalist, a subscriber to the more-is-more aesthetic, yet her horror vacui approach never gets claustrophobic.
