4 Kids Walk Into a Bank and a Signing at Midtown Comics
Yet another awesome signing at Midtown Comic’s NYC downtown location at Fulton Street. This past Thursday, Matthew Rosenberg and Tyler Boss were onsite for the launch of their new book: 4 Kids Walk Into a Bank. Also, I met some cool fans while waiting on line, including Brian, Francis, and P.J.–a probie firefighter, and a true hero, from Brooklyn’s FDNY Engine 224.
The response to this book has been incredible. Even here at our site the staff has, in a rare show of unison, demonstrated their love of the comic. No mean feat, given what a harmonious lot–yes that’s sarcasm–us comic book fans can be. You can read positive reviews about this fun and charming book here and here and here. Rarely do you see a comic book strike such a common chord across a wide fan base. This one is definitely something special. It has a certain je ne sais quoi that can’t be codified or quantified in any meaningful way–in short … it’s a hit.
Pick it up. Plenty of copies floating around (at least on the East Coast), so it shouldn’t be too hard to find; or follow Matthew Rosenberg @ashcanpress on Twitter. He and Tyler are dropping signed copies all over the place, and tweeting about it. Worst case scenario, I already hear from the rumor mill that a second printing is slated for May 25th.
Again, a special thanks to Matthew Rosenberg and Tyler Boss for signing all my books, and I am looking forward to that podcast. Really, I am!
