As initially announced way back in June in the HeroesCon 08 Program Book, we will be hosting a double-signing event on October 17 in our store! American Splendor creator Harvey Pekar and Fun Home creator Alison Bechdel will be signing autographs in our store in advance of their appearance this fall's Novello Festival of Reading uptown!

We're super-thrilled to welcome these two giants (or, as officially described by Novello, "Titans Of The Graphic Novel") to our little old store. They'll be signing autographs for around 2 hours that afternoon, prior to their appearance at the ImaginOn youth library uptown, where they'll be giving a lecture. While our event is free, we're selling tickets for the uptown event to help out our buddies at the library. They're $15 apiece, so pick up a pair on your next trip into the store. Novello has brought a lot of big comics names into town, including Neil Gaiman, Jeff Smith, and Michael Chabon, so we're excited to be working with them!

We'll be posting more info as we get closer to the event, but we just wanted to get you all excited! So get excited!

Whoo-hoo! Thanks for hosting this and for being involved with Novello. Meeting Harvey was a long-held goal of mine. He was funny and easy to speak with, if a little tired.

HAHTF rocks!
