SDCC ’09 | Buenaventura Press and First Second
Buenaventura Press will be debuting a grand total of four new comics at the show this weekend, including Aviatrix #1 by Eric Haven, Boy’s Club #3 by Matt Furie, I Want You by Lisa Hanawalt and Injury #3 by Ted May and co.
Haven, Furie and Hanawalt will all be attending the show and signing copies at the Buenaventura booth (#1732).
In addition, copies of by Tom Gauld andThe Gigantic Robot The Complete Jack Survives by Jack Moriarty will also be available for purchase. Both books were available at the last MoCCA show, but they won’t be available in comic book stores until August, so if you can’t wait, this is your chance.
The company will also have a selection of minicomics and imported books from Sweden, Japan, Italy, France and the UK on hand.
Oh, and in case you were thinking of holding off on buying a copy of Kramer’s Ergot 7 until after the show, publisher Alvin Buenaventura has some news:
This will be the last major signing event for Kramers Ergot 7 as many of the contributors including the editor Sammy Harkham will be with us. We’re down to our last few hundred copies so if you’ve been holding out this is one of your last chances to get a copy and signed! We will not be reprinting this book.
Other artists who will be signing at the booth include Johnny Ryan, Xaime Hernandez, Seth, Tim Hensley and Leif Goldberg.
First Second, meanwhile, isn’t saying if they’ll have any new books at the show available for sale (though I imagine they’ll have one or two upcoming titles behind the counter that they’ll let you see if you bat your eyes and ask nicely), but Gene Yang and Derek Kirk Kim will be signing at their booth (#1323) from 1-2 p.m. on Friday. And if that doesn’t float your boat, the great Lewis Trondheim will be signing at the booth from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Saturday.
