Well, it's not exactly a secret, as we had a bunch of big ads in our HeroesCon 08 Program Book to this effect, AND have it listed under the "Coming Events" section of our weekly Heroes Hotline, but just so YOU, the loyal readers of our humble blog, know it, let us officially announce it:
On Sunday, August 17, from 2-5pm, Mark Millar and Tony Harris will be making a special appearance in our store, in support of their book War Heroes. We'll be a part of an exclusive seven city "Tour of Duty", and the ONLY stop between New York and Texas, so we expect to get a lot of out-of-towners for this event!
In case you're not familiar with Mark Millar, he's the super-popular writer behind The Ultimates, Wanted, and Fantastic Four, among a bunch of others. He rarely makes appearances on this side of the Atlantic Ocean (I believe he's a Glaswegian, and definitely a Scotsman), so we're pretty excited to have him in such an intimate setting. Even more excited because he'll be here with our old pal Tony Harris, he of Ex Machina, Spider-Man: With Great Power, and Starman. Tony's a perennial favorite at HeroesCon and one of our staunchest supporters, so we're always excited to see him, no matter what the reason.
War Heroes #1 should be out any time now, but we'll have a bunch on hand at the signing, as well as a tour exclusive you can only get at one of the 7 "Tour of Duty" stops. We'll see you August 17 in our store!
