After making her big debut at the first annual Bent-Con in Los Angeles (and nearly selling out all the copies I brought) Glamazonia: The Uncanny Super-Tranny is about to hit a comics store near you! East coast customers could see her on comic shop shelves as early as this Wednesday the 15th, while us west coasters will have to wait until the 22nd. I’ve also added links so that you can order the book directly from Northwest starting today.
The lucky folks in the San Francisco Bay area will be able to grab a copy before everyone else! This weekend the book will hit select comic shops in S.F.—including Mission Comics and Art!, Whatever… and Isotope—and there will also be some excellent signings and launch events that we’re having to celebrate the arrival of the book.
There will be a reading and signing on December 11th at Mission Comics and Art! Creator Justin Hall will be there, along with Diego Gómez, Jon Macy, Fred Noland, Ed Luce and Christine Smith. Check out the Facebook event and RSVP!
On December 18th, there will be an “Uncanny Holiday Celebration” at Whatever… from 8-10pm. The event will feature Justin, Fred, Diego and Jon and will celebrate the season as well as the first two books from Northwest Press: Glamazonia and Jon Macy’s Teleny and Camille. The party will also be a toy drive; attendees can bring an unwrapped toy and receive a free comic book. Check out the Facebook event and RSVP!
To top it off, there will be limited edition signed and numbered book plates available at all of these events!
If you’re not able to make these fabulous events, there should still be plenty of time to order it direct from Northwest, or head to your local comics shop and get a copy of the book to give as a Christmas present. What could be more in keeping with the spirit of the season than a hard-drinking party girl superheroine? (Well, that’s my Christmas, anyway.)
Happy holidays, everyone, and here’s to a queer New Year!
