Nov. 19, 2022: Doctor Rigby Signing

Join us at our Lauderhill location on Saturday, November 19 from 2-4pm for an in-store signing with comic artist and writer John Kissee.

John has created an awesome new one-shot comic called DOCTOR RIGBY, which will delight you! Come on out and show your support for this local comic creator!

Weird horror meets 60s retro adventure! Shrouded in mystery, Doctor Rigby is an impeccably dressed soldier in a secret, ancient war of magic, monsters, and cosmic madness. In this one-shot tale, Rigby discovers horrors beyond imagining in a theme park haunted house ride turned hellishly real.

John Kissee is a graphic designer and illustrator whose work includes comics, book covers, magazine illustration and packaging design. A south Florida native, he lives in Ft Lauderdale with his beloved husband and dog. Check out his work at johnkissee.com & Instagram: john_kissee

Jan. 11, 2020: In-Store Signing with Steve Horton and BOWIE Art Show

Signing with Author Steve Horton from 4-6pm
BOWIE Art Opening in our Upstairs Gallery 5-7pm

In addition to writing BOWIE, Steve Horton is most recently the author of the graphic novel Satellite Falling (IDW Publishing), which multi-award winning comic writer Jimmy Palmiotti called his “new favorite book.”

Inspired by the one & only superhero, extraterrestrial and rock & roll deity in history, BOWIE is the original graphic memoir of the great Ziggy Stardust!

Chronicling the rise of Bowie’s career from obscurity to fame; and paralleled by the rise and fall of his alter ego as well as the rise and fall of Ziggy Stardust. As the Spiders from Mars slowly implode, Bowie wrestles with his Ziggy persona. The outcome of this internal conflict will change not only David Bowie, but also, the world.

BOWIE: Stardust, Rayguns, and Moonage Daydreams is a 160-page hardcover graphic novel from Insight Editions, scheduled to release on 1/8/20. Featuring artwork by Mike Allred and color by Laura Allred.

“This tribute is a ravishing spectacle” , Publishers Weekly

“BOWIE: Stardust, Rayguns & Moonage Daydreams is an absolute dream come true… there have been other books that meld comics with rock and roll. None of them, though, have done it so seamlessly and so attractively as BOWIE: Stardust, Rayguns & Moonage Daydreams does. For fans of David Bowie, Mike Allred, rock and roll, comics and art, this is a must-have purchase.” – Andy Burns, BiffBamPop.com
