Arkansas & Chicago signings/talks in early August!

I'm turning 40 years old tomorrow, and hitting the road for my new graphic novel Come Again-- first up, my home state of Arkansas! Come to any of these events if you can:

* Friday, August 3rd-- Fayetteville Public Library, Fayetteville AR. I'll be doing a slideshow talk about Come Again, March, and my general path through comics at 1pm, followed by a loose workshop for independently motivated/interested artists and storytellers. Nightbird Books will have books available for sale at the library.

* Friday, August 3rd-- Nightbird Books (205 W. Dickson St.), Fayetteville AR-- I'll be doing a signing from 7-9pm.

* Saturday, August 4th-- Zine Night, Vino's (923 W. 7th), Little Rock AR-- I'll be selling books and hanging out from 7-10pm.

And if you're in the Chicago area:

Starred review for COME AGAIN in Publishers Weekly!

COME AGAIN final 258.jpg

I'm thrilled to find that Come Again got a starred review in Publishers Weekly-- and it's still a little surreal to me that this story's beginning to spill out into a world of readers, and it's no longer something that just exists in my heart:

"Rendered in fluid, magical brushwork tinted in the colors of a sunrise and filled with mysterious shadows and crannies... this enchanting solo effort reveals even greater depths to Powell’s gift for visual storytelling and creating appealing, human characters."

Out from Top Shelf in July! You can pre-order from Amazon here, or better, pre-order with your local comics shop to get it a few weeks early with a signed bookplate!
