Victoria Jamieson signing ALL'S FAIRE IN MIDDLE SCHOOL

We're ever so excited to announce that Victoria Jamieson will be doing a short public signing at 11 AM on Sunday October 22nd following our private Kid's Club meeting and Q&A, in support of her awesome new book ALL'S FAIRE IN MIDDLE SCHOOL.

Victoria has to leave by 12:30 in order to catch a flight, so we have to cap the line at 100 people. Kid's Club members get first priority; you can join at graphicnovelclub.com/kids! To guarantee a spot in line otherwise, click here to purchase a copy of ALL'S FAIR IN MIDDLE SCHOOL from us in advance (this link will stop working when we are sold out)

About ALL'S FAIRE IN MIDDLE SCHOOL: Eleven-year-old Imogene (Impy) has grown up with two parents working at the Renaissance Faire, and she's eager to begin her own training as a squire. First, though, she'll need to prove her bravery. Luckily Impy has just the quest in mind--she'll go to public school after a life of being homeschooled! But it's not easy to act like a noble knight-in-training in middle school. Impy falls in with a group of girls who seem really nice (until they don't) and starts to be embarrassed of her thrift shop apparel, her family's unusual lifestyle, and their small, messy apartment. Impy has always thought of herself as a heroic knight, but when she does something really mean in order to fit in, she begins to wonder whether she might be more of a dragon after all.

Tillie Walden signing SPINNING

We're very, very happy to announce that Tillie Walden will be here at Comix Experience on November 12th to sign her new graphic memoir SPINNING (:01 First Second)! SPINNING, our graphic novel of the month club pick for October, is a moving, beautiful memoir about growing up in and growing out of competitive figure skating.

The signing will be open to the public from 6pm to 7:30pm and will be followed by our monthly Graphic Novel Club meeting, where club members will get to talk to Tillie all about her process. You can find out more about the Graphic Novel of the Month at graphicnovelclub.com.

About SPINNING: Figure skating was Tillie Walden's life. She woke before dawn for morning lessons, went straight to group practice after school, and spent weekends competing in glitter and tights. It was a central piece of her identity, her safe haven from the stress of school, bullies, and family. But as Tillie's interests evolve, from her growing passion for art to a first love realized with a new girlfriend, she begins to question how the close-minded world of figure skating fits in. Poignant and captivating, this powerful graphic memoir captures what it's like to come of age, come out, and come to terms with leaving behind everything you used to know.

CALEXIT Signing with Matteo Pizzolo and more!

Meet the creators of CALEXIT, the new, ripped-from-the-headlines comic out from Black Mask that's currently making headlines! On July 28th, we'll have Matt Pizzolo, Amancay Nahuelpan, Tyler Boss and Matthew Rosenberg (4 Kids Walk into a Bank, We Can Never Go Home) here signing--don't miss your chance to hang out with the masterminds behind comics' most timely near-future dystopia!

About Calexit: What if a fascist, autocratic President took over the United States? And what if that President lost California, the sixth largest economy on Earth, by nearly 2-to-1...a margin of almost 3 1/2 million votes? What if the day after that President took power, the largest mass demonstration in history occurred, and the state with the largest turnout was California. And then, the following week, two of the largest international airports in the world, California's LAX and SFO, were blockaded by protesters?
What if California refused to be ruled?

From the creators of YOUNG TERRORISTS, Matteo Pizzolo (GODKILLER) and Amancay Nahuelpan (CLANDESTINO), comes this tale of resisting oppression, punching Nazis, protecting each other, kicking ass, and demanding liberty for all.

Ben Costa and James Parks signing RICKETY STITCH

Ben Costa and James Parks will be here to sign their hilarious new graphic novel Rickety Stitch and the Gelatinous Goo on Sunday, July 16th at 11am!

The signing will take place AFTER the Graphic Novel of the Month Kids' Club meeting, which starts at 10am and is only open to Kids' Club members.

The Hobbit meets Adventure Time in this full-color graphic novel series kickoff as a singing skeleton searches for his origins alongside his adorable gelatin monster sidekick! Rickety Stitch is a walking, talking, singing skeleton minstrel, the only animated skeleton in the dungeon who seems to have retained his soul. He has no idea who he used to be when he was covered in a living, breathing sack of meat and skin. His only clue to his former identity is a song he hears snippets of in his dreams, an epic bard's tale that could also explain the old fog covering the comical fantasy land of Eem. Oh, and his sidekick and only friend is a cube of sentient goo. In this rollicking first volume, Rickety encounters imps, gnomes, giants, unicorns, a mysterious lady knight, and other fantasy dwellers on his quest to uncover his identity and spread his (painfully bad) music far and wide. This is a smart and funny book that your middle grade readers will adore!
