Shawn Colvin will be signing at Cards, Comics & Collectibles of Reisterstown, MD on Wednesday, July 26th from 4pm-6pm.
Shawn Colvin was lost in the grips of drug addiction for 22 years. Homelessness, crime, incarceration, and drug use became a way of life for him. After a great many unsuccessful recovery attempts and total spiritual bankruptcy, he landed at the doorsteps of the Helping Up Mission (Baltimore City) in 2011. It was there that he turned his life around and discovered his true passion and purpose. Creating comic books and helping others onto the path of recovery became the catalyst for the birth of Bluey Kool. It is Shawn’s belief that everyone has an inner power (a gift). Today, he sets upon a journey in which he coaches and motivates others to discover their true power and potential.
Artist Laurence Campbell and cover artist Duncan Fegredo appear at Orbital Comics on Wednesday 26th July beginning at 5:00 PM to celebrate the launch of the third story arc from Mike Mignola’s B.P.R.D. series The Devil You Know from Dark Horse.
Guest: Charles Forsman
Creator Charles Forsman (Revenger, Slasher) appears at Comics N’ More on Wednesday, July 26th at 5:00 PM!
His graphic novel “The End of the Fucking World” is being re-released in anticipation of the upcoming Netflix/BBC series that is being made, based on the book!! We’ll have copies of his ongoing comics, graphic novels, and prints. Check out Slasher, Revenger, and Celebrated Summer! Get your copies signed!
“TEotFW follows James and Alyssa, two teenagers living a seemingly typical teen experience as they face the fear of coming adulthood. Forsman tells their story through each character’s perspective, jumping between points of view with each chapter. But quickly, this somewhat familiar teenage experience takes a more nihilistic turn as James’s character exhibits a rapidly forming sociopathy that threatens both of their futures. He harbors violent fantasies and begins to act on them, while Alyssa remains as willfully ignorant for as long as she can, blinded by young love.
Forsman’s story highlights the disdain, fear and existential search that many teenagers fear, but through a road trip drama that owes as much to Badlands as The Catcher in the Rye. Forsman’s inviting, Charles Schulz-influenced style lends a deadpan quality that underscores the narrative’s tension. The End of the Fucking World was one of the most talked-about graphic novels of 2013. Now that the world is ending, it’s sure to become the most talked-about graphic novel of 2017.

Relishing their new relationship, Korra and Asami leave the spirit world . . . but find nothing in Republic City but political high jinks and human vs. spirit conflict! A pompous developer plans to turn the new spirit portal into an amusement park, potentially severing an already tumultuous connection with the spirits. What’s more, the triads have realigned and are in a brutal all-out brawl at the city’s borders-where hundreds of evacuees have relocated!
Written by series co-creator Michael Dante DiMartino and drawn by Irene Koh (Secret Origins: Batgirl, Afrina and the Glass Coffin), with consultation by Bryan Konietzko, this is the official continuation of The Legend of Korra!
