Y’all, if you haven’t heard, I am selling the store on July 14. You can read about it right here. Before I pass the torch to the next generation, though, I’m having one last throwdown in celebration. I’m bringing in some of my favorite comics professionals for a big signing on Saturday, July 12. There’ll be comics, food (catered by our longtime friends at Mediterranean Deli!), and fun, so please mark your calendars now for the
GREATEST SIGNING OF ALL TIME!
Ed Piskor will be back in the store to sign more copies of the best-selling HIP HOP FAMILY TREE! This is the beginning of the definitive history of hip hop in ANY MEDIUM, with more volumes to come! All fans of Hip Hop Culture owe it to themselves to read this work.
Jim Rugg will return to the store to sign the beautiful new hardcover printing of STREET ANGEL, as well as copies of his other masterworks, AFRODISIAC and SUPERMAG. Street Angel is about a homeless teenage girl on a skateboard who fights ninjas and conquistadors. Afrodisiac is an incredible Blaxploitation art book/comic. You gotta cop these if you don’t have them already.
Tom Scioli will be at Chapel Hill Comics for the first time to sign the brand new TRANSFORMERS VS GI JOE #1! Tom is also the artist of GODLAND and the creator of the super-psychedelic AMERICAN BARBARIAN! His work is old school and super-futuristic all at once, and we’re very excited to host him at the store! We will have copies of Godland Celestial Edition Volume 1 and 2, and Godland TPB #5 (Far Beyond the Big Bang) and #6 (Goodbye, Cosmic), which all together cover the complete series. He’ll also be bringing his minicomics Satan’s Soldier 1-4, and Final Frontier!
CHRIS PITZER and his pal ANDREW NEAL
Chris Pitzer is the publisher of Adhouse books, which has consistently been the publisher of the best comics out there over the course of my ownership of Chapel Hill Comics. I love Pitzer and I love his books, so I’m thrilled he’s coming out. And I’ll be there too. If you want to come shake my hand before I hand the crown over to the new King of Chapel Hill Comics, come on by!
We’ll also have a special display of Jim Rugg’s art by super art collector Ben Huang, as well as the original cover art to Jim’s Walking Dead Ghost Variant, courtesy of me! It’s an art show too!
Please, please make plans to come out to get some incredible comics signed and to help me celebrate the twenty(!) years I’ve spent with the store and the eleven years I’ve spent as its owner. I’m thrilled and excited about the sale and about this signing; it should be a lot of fun!
