California raisin’ hell
Sometimes events bypass those of us who don’t have the chance to shop regularly in comics stores. Thus it was that I completely missed the debut of Will Vinton’s graphic novel Jack Hightower. Granted, the well-known animator co-wrote the 112-page GN rather than drawing it, but it’s still welcome to have such an imaginative storyteller trying out the world of comics, and the concept looks adorable. And if you live in El-Lay and have some free time after work on Wednesday, March 14, you can hightow — I mean, hightail it over to Golden Apple Books on Melrose, where Vinton will be doing a signing from 5 to 7 PM. G’wan and ask him about the M&Ms, I dare you. I want to know what’s up with the custom-printed ones too.
