INTERVIEW: Gail Simone Guides 'Blockbuster Update' of Red Sonja, Vampirella and Dejah Thoris
MoCCA is just around the corner—tomorrow, actually—and the cards and letters are still rolling in from folks who plan to be there. Top Shelf is kicking things off tonight with a Swedish Invasion party, and they will be debuting their new lineup of Swedish graphic novels as well as James Kochalka’s SuperF*ckers, Matt Kindt’s Super Spy (vol. 2): The Lost Dossiers, Jeffrey Brown’s Undeleted Scenes, and Dodgem Logic, edited by Alan Moore. Guests will include Alex Robinson and Kevin Cannon.
First Second will be featuring their recent releases, with signings by Susan Kim, Laurence Klavan, and Pascal Dizi, the team behind City of Spies; James Sturm, Andrew Arnold, and Alexis Frederick-Frost, the creators of Adventures in Cartooning; Mike Cavallaro, the artist of Foiled; and George O’Connor, who is getting acclaim for the first two volumes of his adaptations of Greek myths, Zeus: King of the Gods and Athena: Grey-Eyed Goddess.
Stop by the Abrams ComicArts table for signings by Reinhard Kleist, Dan Nadel, Jaime Hernandez, and Todd Hignite, and watch out for their folks on several panels as well. They will have signed copies of Al Jaffee’s Tall Tales, Jason Shiga’s Meanwhile, David A. Beronä’s Wordless Books, and Craig Yoe’s Secret Identity for sale as well.
