Things are rolling! We've sold out of HARK! (a record-breaking 300 books in 9 hours!) and the copies of DEATH-RAY are going fast, so do not delay! These books don't even hit stores until the end of September and mid-October respectively.

Today, Friday July 22nd, we have a nice mix of signings, and just one panel: a spotlight on Chester Brown. To honour the spotlight, he's signing for five whole hours today!

11:00 - 1:00 Chester Brown signing
12:00 - 3:00 Anders Nilsen & Brian Ralph signing
4:00 - 7:00 Chester Brown signing

Spotlight on Chester Brown— Louis Riel, Yummy Fur,and Ed The Happy Clown cartoonist -- and Comic-Con special guest -- Chester Brown has been one of the most influential and acclaimed alternative cartoonists for the past 20 years. His 2011 graphic novel Paying for It:  A Comic-Strip Memoir About Being a John is easily the most talked about  book of the year and was praised in the New York Times. Join him on his  panel as he performs his acclaimed slideshow, reading from his North
