ComicMix debuts exclusive graphic novels at Baltimore Comic-Con
Are you going to the Baltimore Comic-Con at the end of the month? So are we! And we’ve got something special for you.
In honor of the first anniversary of our announcement of our comics publishing program at last year’s show, we’re testing three graphic novel collections of recently completed stories from ComicMix. You’ll want to check these out:
EZ Street – The Harvey-nominated graphic novel by Robert Tinnell (Feast of Seven Fishes, Surf Nazis Must Die, Kids of the Round Table) and Baltimore’s own Mark Wheatley (Mars, Frankenstein Mobster, Hammer of the Gods, Breathtaker) is about two brothers, a story about the love of stories, about ambition and dreams and fantasy, EZ Street is an involving look at the creative process, the dynamic of families, the true meaning of friendship and the quest for a really good comic. Wheatley and Tinnell will be at the Insight Studios/ComicMix booth to sign copies.
GrimJack: The Manx Cat – Since its first appearance as a back-up in Starslayer in 1983, GrimJack has been a fan favorite. The stories blend genres – the hard-boiled detective stories of Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammet get combined with the sword and sorcery of Robert E, Howard. In The Manx Cat, these elements combine in a story that tells the history of Cynosure and the stuff that dreams are made of. Timothy Truman will be on hand to sign copies.
Jon Sable Freelance: Ashes of Eden – The character of Jon Sable is so popular that he was the inspiration for the ABC network series, Sable, in 1987. In Ashes of Eden, Sable is hired by the head of an African diamond cartel to transport a magnificent raw diamond to an exhibit in New York. But his task is complicated by having to play escort, bodyguard and babysitter to the cartel’s corporate spokesperson, Bashira, a temperamental. In a story combining jewels, fashion, and a network of terrorists, Sable must also deal with enticements of Maggie the Cat. Colorist Glenn Hauman will be on hand to sign copies.
These collector’s items are limited to 100 copies and will be available for the first time at the ComicMix booth exclusively at Baltimore Comic-Con from Saturday, September 28 through Sunday, September 29. More information and tickets are available at http://www.baltimorecomiccon.com.
