On Wednesday, March 29th, we will be joined by artist Val Mayerik and Jim Berry for a signing of their new hardcover graphic novel about the Battle of Little Big Horn, Of Dust and Blood. The graphic novel is not yet available to the direct market, so this is a wonderful opportunity to get it early, and get it signed by both the artist and writer!

About Of Dust and Blood:
OF DUST AND BLOOD: A Story from Custer’s Fight at The Greasy Grass, is an original graphic novel from writer Jim Berry and veteran illustrator Val Mayerik. The story details the day of The Battle At The Little Big Horn through the eyes of Greenhaw, a 7th Cavalry scout on one side of the battlefield, and Slowhawk, a young Lakota warrior on the other.

The book focuses on a compelling drama while also being as historically accurate as possible via quotes and documented actions on every page. There will be featured appearances by the famous protagonists of the day - G.A. Custer, Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse - but we’ve chosen to focus on two fictional characters, and use them as lenses to show what it might have been like on that hot afternoon in 1876 for two ordinary men pressed into battle.

Ladies! You are welcome to join us in discussing Princess Jellyfish at our quarterly book club.

Tsukimi Kurashita has loved jellyfish from a young age. Tsukimi Kurashita moves into the Amamizukan to take refuge with other geek girls. But real life has a way of crashing in, even when you're hiding among socially-inept manga artists, history buffs, and doll fanatics. One evening, at the local pet store, Tsukimi sees a lovely jellyfish in danger! A chance encounter with a young black sheep of a wealthy family puts Tsukimi on a path she never thought she'd travel: that of fashion designer and entrepreneur! But with so many valuable secrets floating around, predators are bound to smell blood in the water.

We hope to see you there!

As soon as we saw the latest Albatross Funnybooks title, we knew we needed to get our friend Fabian Rangel Jr in here for a signing! The title pretty much says it all: 'Namwolf is about a Vietnam War soldier that discovers he's a werewolf. And we're going to have the writer here when the first issue releases on Wednesday, April 19th. Stop in and get your issue signed, and talk to Fabian about his work!

About the creator:
Fabian Rangel Jr is a coffee addicted comic book writer based out of Corpus Christi, Texas. He's the writer/co-creator of Doc Unknown (Dark Horse Comics), Space Riders (Black Mask Studios), Helena Crash (IDW), 'Namwolf (Albatross), and Blood Brothers: Hermanos de Sangre. He's also worked on such properties as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Mouse Guard, Jim Henson's The Storyteller, and Lucha Underground.

About 'Namwolf:
When scrawny Marty Spencer is drafted into the Vietnam War, he finds himself smack dab in the middle of the heart of darkness. But Marty has a secret. A secret even from himself. And Vietnam is a hell of a place to find out you're a werewolf.
