Past EventsFeb. 1, 2020: Fights Signing
Joel Christian Gill appears at Comicopia on Saturday, February 1, 2020 at 1 PM for a signing of his powerful graphic memoir, Fights: One Boy’s Triumph Over Violence.
Fights is the visceral and deeply affecting memoir of artist/author Joel Christian Gill, chronicling his youth and coming of age as a Black child in a chaotic landscape of rough city streets and foreboding backwoods.
Propelled into a world filled with uncertainty and desperation, young Joel is pushed toward using violence to solve his problems by everything and everyone around him. But fighting doesn’t always yield the best results for a confused and sensitive kid who yearns for a better, more fulfilling life than the one he was born into, as Joel learns in a series of brutal conflicts that eventually lead him to question everything he has learned about what it truly means to fight for one’s life.March 30, 2019: Assassin Nation #1 Signings

Comicopia is thrilled to welcome Katie O’Neill, award-winning creator of Princess Princess Ever After and The Tea Dragon Society, into the store for a signing on Thursday, May 10th at 5:00 PM! If you love sweet, soul-warming stories of friendship, love, and tiny dragons, you aren’t going to want to miss this.
The Tea Dragon Society has been described as: “A manga-flavored fairy tale just the right length to pair with a cup of tea.” (Hope Larson, A Wrinkle in Time: the Graphic Novel) It is one of our favorite all-ages graphic novels to come out in the last year, and we love sharing it with all of our friends and customers!
“From the award-winning author of Princess Princess Ever After comes The Tea Dragon Society, a charming fairy tale about Greta, an adventurous blacksmith apprentice, and the people she meets as she becomes entwined in the enchanting world of tea dragons.
After discovering a lost tea dragon in the marketplace, Greta learns about the dying art form of tea dragon caretaking from the kind tea shop owners, Hesekiel and Erik. As she befriends them and their shy ward, Minette, Greta sees how the craft enriches their lives—and eventually her own.”
We will have copies of both The Tea Dragon Society and Princess Princess Ever After available for purchase and signing. This event is open to readers of all ages!May 5, 2018: FCBD 2018: Cold War Signing
