October 9th marks the beginning of the 2014 New York Comic Con, and The Overlook Press is excited to announce that for the first time ever we will be joining the much-anticipated annual event. From October 9th to 12th, The Overlook Press will be at the Javits Center at Booth #128, ready to introduce some of our amazing titles to Comic Con fans.
We'll have something for everyone, from a Metallica graphic novel to our ancient Roman Swords and Sandals series, and from the bestselling True Grit to a wealth of books about movies. Fans will also have the opportunity to meet our featured authors Edward Carey (Heap House), Dave Zeltserman (The Boy Who Killed Demons) and Deirdre Franklin (Little Darling's Pinups for Pitbulls) at exclusive book signings.
New York Comic Con is a fantastic way to celebrate stories across many genres, and we can’t wait to share with you some of ours. In the meantime you can learn more about our authors, below!
Edward Carey is the author and illustrator of two novels for adults, Observatory Mansions and Alva and Irva, which was longlisted for the IMPAC Literary Award.
