Start Time: 04:00PM End Time: 09:00PM
Illusive Comics & Games is hosting a book signing with award winning author Brian Fies on Wednesday, October 17, 2012 from 4p-9pm. Fies is the author and artist of the graphic novels Whatever Happened to the World of Tomorrow and Mom’s Cancer. Copies of his books will be available for purchase at the signing, and attendees will receive a free sketch by Fies with purchase.
Whatever Happened to the World of Tommorow, newly released in paperback, tells the story of a young boy growing up in the era of possibility, when rockets, engines, and the atom bomb were fascinating new realities. The book spans the period from the 1939 World’s Fair to the last Apollo Space mission in 1975, and reflects not only on the changing world but also on the relationship between a son and his father. Interspersed with the comic book adventures of Commander Cap Crater, and mixing art and historical photographs, this groundbreaking graphic novel is a lively trip through a half century of technological evolution.
Whatever Happened to the World of Tomorrow was awarded the American Astronautical Society’s 2009 Eugene M. Emme Award for Best Astronautical Literature for Young Adults.
Mom’s Cancer, published in 2006, is the story of Fies’ mother’s battle with Stage IV metastatic lung cancer. Originally published in installments on the internet, it won the 2005 Eisner Award for Best Digital Comic, and in graphic novel form was awarded the 2007 Harvey Award for Best New Talent, and the 2007 German Youth Literature Prize, among other awards and recognition.
Fies is available for press interviews. Contact Anna Warren Cebrian at Illusive Comics & Games for information.
