Paul Pope’s THB:  Comics from Mars #2 Debuts at Baltimore Comic-Con!

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND – August 26, 2010 – AdHouse Books is proud to announce the Baltimore Comic-Con Exclusive Debut of THB: Comics from Mars #2 by Paul Pope.

This comic continues to add to the epic tale that is THB. It contains 6.5 stories (or thereabouts) that take you further into the world of HR Watson and all the androids, Martians, and cartoon characters that populate the red planet — still larger than life and just as sweet.

“This comic is the ‘sister’ to the 2007 San Diego Comic-Con THB: Comics from Mars #1, and we could not be happier than to be releasing it at the Baltimore show,” said Chris Pitzer, Adhouse Books Publisher. “It was all very last minute, but you wouldn’t know that from the quality of the stories.”

Paul Pope, creator of THB, been called the “Comics Destroyer”, the “Jim Morrison of comics”, and “Comics’ Petit Prince”. His work has won multiple Eisner Awards and has been part of a major collection of DKNY.

Paul’s return to the Baltimore Comic-Con this year features a panel discussion on Sunday from 3-4 titled: PAUL POPE VS. BOB SCHRECK – A CAGED EVENT. Don’t miss this satisfaction-guaranteed, fists-a-flying blood match by joining award-winning multi-talented storyteller, Paul Pope, in an examination of his creative process and how he suffers under the heel of his terrifying editor.
