At The Beguiling and Geekdom...
Christmas is coming and I'm off to Ontario to visit my folks. I've been invited to do a couple of signings for my newly published graphic novel, Zombies Calling, at a couple of local stores. The BIG ONE is at the famous Toronto comic store The Beguiling. [link]
I'll be there with a much more famous cartoonist, Svetlana Chmakova (creator of Dramacon), whose Dramacon 3 book is just out. The signing will be on the 19th of December from 4-6 pm. Click here for info: [link]
If fighting your way into Toronto isn't your thing, I'll also be at my hometown comic shop, Geekdom, in Milton on the 22nd of Dec, from 1-3 pm. Here's the webpage with location info: [link]
I grew up in that tiny little town, which had one comic store that I absolutely hated going into ... it was claustrophobic and epitomized all that is wrong with comic book stores, including icky clerks and a selection of comics that ran the gamut of Marvel to ... Marvel. THAT comic book store closed down a while ago, but THIS store is new, and I'm assured is very nice. And I think it's important to support comic book stores in tiny towns (well, towns that are now basically suburbs of Toronto), because if you don't, where will the poor geeks trapped in suburbia get their comics?
Anyway, if you want to avoid the hordes of fans that I'm sure are going to descend on The Beguiling signing and mob Svetlana, the second signing might be a nice option.
Hope to see you there!
