Dark Horse Announces "Fight Club 2" Book Tour 2016 Featuring Chuck Palahniuk!

On June 28th, Dark Horse Comics will release the hardcover graphic novel of the full, 10-series run of Fight Club 2. And to mark this occasion, Chuck will be matching that number with a 10-city signing tour! This is Chuck’s first “signing tour” since Tell-All in 2010!

Each fan at an event will meet Chuck, have their copy of Fight Club 2 signed, and up to two backlist books/memorabilia signed as well. Not to mention a photo with Chuck! Before we post the dates though, we gotta set the rules out. After all, this is Fight Club, right?

· These FIGHT CLUB 2 appearances are signings ONLY.
· Chuck will not be performing or reading at any events.
· These are ticketed events and each ticket will include a copy of the FIGHT CLUB 2 hardcover ($29.99).
· Tickets must be purchased in order to join the signing line.
· In addition to FIGHT CLUB 2, Chuck will sign TWO other items (a piece of memorabilia or book).
· Chuck will happily pose for photos with fans.
· Line formation times will be posted at the links of each event location below.

Again: The above rules apply to all events below. Any further questions about specific locations, times, addresses, etc, should be sent directly to the venues below. Contact information should be provided. If it's not, it should be included on the links for each location.

The Foreigner Kickstarter 40 hours to Go!

It's hard to believe the time is finally here. The Foreigner Kickstarter campaign is off to a healthy start. Thanks to the generosity of my early supporters we've raised about one-third of the goal ($3,000)!. I'm excited to announce The Foreigner has been selected as one of Kickstarter's "Projects We Love."

Reflection: NYCC Ticket Hunt

Last year, New York Comic Con 3-Day and 4-Day tickets were sold out the day it was released on their website. Basically, if your computer didn’t go through to beat the online traffic, you were out of luck. I was one of the unlucky ones. So, the next opportunity to acquire the tickets was at Special Edition: New York City, ReedPOPS’s comics focused convention.

Cosplay is NOT Consent Includes Cosplayers Too


I’ve been contemplating for a few days now on whether or not I write about my Cosplay is not Consent experience. Should I write about what happened? Do I want to relive the unfortunate experience? Is it worth being told? Once I asked myself these questions, I realized that my experience should inform cosplayers that they are NOT an exception to the rule.
