Independent publishing house StarWarp Concepts—home of dark-urban-fantasy books and graphic novels—returns for the 2013 New York Comic Con, being held on October 10–13 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.
Booth #1337 is where you’ll find bestselling author and StarWarp Concepts publisher Steven A. Roman (X-Men: The Chaos Engine Trilogy) promoting The Saga of Pandora Zwieback–a young adult novel series about a teenaged Goth who teams up with an immortal shape-shifter to hunt monsters–and Lorelei: Sects and the City, the mature readers graphic novel that reintroduced StarWarp Concepts’ first horror heroine.
Joining Roman will be:
Bob Larkin: From Doc Savage and Batman to Star Wars and the X-Men, from the Hulk and Star Trek to Vampirella and Planet of the Apes, there’s little that this legendary artist hasn’t painted. Larkin will make his return to NYCC to meet with his legions of fans and to promote SWC’s The Bob Larkin Sketchbook and The Saga of Pandora Zwieback novels, for which Larkin provides cover paintings. Larkin is scheduled to appear at the booth on Friday afternoon and on Saturday.
Sholly Fisch: The acclaimed writer of DC Comics’ Forever Evil: Bizarro, Forever Evil: Metallo, Action Comics Annual, and the Eisner Award–nominated All-New Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Fisch will appear on Friday to sign copies of the now-on-sale Saga of Pandora Zwieback Annual #1, which includes his 8-page collaboration with art-legend Ernie Colon (Amethyst, Princess of Gemworld).
