I’m gearing up for the long drive from Raleigh, NC to the Big Apple for this week’s New York Comic-Con, and I’ll be bringing a ton (literally!) of goodies with me to Booth #1703, right in the front of the Jacob Javits Center.
Debuting will be the new (and final) issue of WRITE NOW, #20, with a big focus on Will Eisner’s SPIRIT. Editor Danny Fingeroth will be on hand to greet readers at our booth, so be sure to stop by and tell him how much you’ve enjoyed his hard work on the magazine over the years.
In addition to having copies of almost every item we have in print, we’ll also have gobs of free copies of our new 2009 Catalog to hand out, listing all kinds of new items we’ll be publishing between now and July 2009. So be sure to stop by and get yours!
The annual TwoMorrows Publishing Panel will be held Saturday, February 7, from 1:45 – 2:45 in Room 1A17. I’ll be moderating an assemblage of some of your favorite authors and editors from the TwoMorrows stable, so take a break from the pandemonium on the show floor, and see what’s new (including some special double-secret announcements).
KIRBY COLLECTOR FANS: Joe Simon will be making a rare convention appearance, to celebrate the launch of The Official Simon and Kirby Library archive series from Titan Books, and will be signing exclusive limited edition lithographs. (Titan plans to release two books a year, and these will be the only editions authorized by both Joe Simon and the estate of Jack Kirby. In addition to The Official Simon and Kirby Library, Titan will publish the autobiography of Joe Simon in 2010.) So don’t miss your chance to meet this living legend!
Due to our convention appearance, we’ll be closed from February 4-9, so any orders placed during that time will be filled beginning on February 10. But if you’re in New York for the Comic-Con, save yourself some postage and stop by Booth #1703 to pick up your TwoMorrows items in person; I hope to see you there!
