Written by Larry Reid | Filed under rockJohnny RyanFantagraphics Bookstoreevents 8 Oct 2009 11:08 AM

Johnny Ryan event announcement

An action packed evening of comix craziness with Johnny Ryan is in store this Saturday, October 10 at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery. A show of original art from Ryan’s wild new graphic novel Prison Pit will be on display, along with colorful silkscreen prints and figurines.

The event will feature a Ryan-inspired performance piece by Fantagraphics’ own Ardent Vein in full Prison Pit character. (Yeah, we can’t wait to see this either.) So join us this Saturday from 6:00 and 9:00 PM for beverages and meet the extraordinary artist behind Angry Youth Comix, Blecky Yuckerella and other unforgettable comics. This promises to be great fun, and coincides with the Georgetown Art Attack featuring festive arts events throughout the historic cultural community.

Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery is located at 1201 S. Vale St. (at Airport Way S.) only minutes south of downtown. Open daily 11:30 to 8:00 PM, Sundays until 5:00 PM. Phone (206) 658-0110. See you soon.

You'll Never Know Book 1 by C. Tyler

It's my pleasure to share the following announcement from C. Tyler:

Hello Friends!

Two things this Fall:

Saturday, October 17 from 10 - 4 come see me at the Duke Energy Center in downtown Cincinnati. "Books By the Banks" is the name of the event and I will be there signing my newest book
You'll Never Know.

Miami International Book Fair , November 8 - 15. I'll be signing all weekend as part of the "Comix Galaxy" and on Friday afternoon giving a talk to education professionals: "What's So Funny About Teaching Comics." I will be hauling all those corny thrift store props that I use to jump start creativity in my classroom at UC's DAAP down to sunny Fla. (Including "The Motivator" and "The Lamp of Inspiration". This year's new additions: action items like a 1960s world globe that lights up/spins and a mechanical hamster running like hell on a wheel.) I hope the talk goes over with this crowd (!). Regardless, I can't wait to put my toes in the ocean.

Book II: Collateral Damage is due out this time next year (Fall 2010), so stay tuned!
