I recently entered a contest held by Darby Pop Publishing with regards to their release of Scott Barnett and Jeff Marsick’s outstanding comic, Dead Man’s Party
What I won was a sketch from Scott (more later), and a pound of Death Wish Coffee and a Death Wish Coffee mug. How cool is that?
Yes kids, as it turns out a buddy of mine (one Ramon Gil) crafted a series of thoroughly entertaining comics entitled Scifies, then Ramon compiled those comics into a trade paperback, which is being published by Atlas Unleashed. Then (more importantly) he asked your humble narrarator to pen an intro for — which I did. (Truthfully, he also asked former editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics Tom DeFalco to write a forward, but that’s not important right now.)
Well, needless to say, Ramon is releasing the TBPB at New York Comic Con this coming weekend. However, prior to that, he is having a pre-release signing at the famed St. Marks Comics in NYC. This signing will be held on Monday, October 5th between 8:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m.
If you show up, you will also be able to catch — in addition to Ramon, Atlas Unleashed publisher and all-around Nice Guy, Mark Mazz, but myself, as well as a host of other talented comicbook creators (including Tom DeFalco, Chris Torres, Michael Sarrao, and a number of others autographing some of their works.
Scifies, is a most amazing 72 page Trade Paperback, and if you want to get a personalized copy for yourself you will show up at St. Marks Comics in NYC on Monday night, October 5th between 8:00 p.m. and 10:00 p.m.
You simply won’t regret the experience.
Sorry, kids, I just couldn’t help myself.
