Comments Comments Off on Underground covers for every publisher

Things From Another World, in partnership with MacTarnahan’s Brewing, Periscope Studio, and GeekintheCity, is proud to announce a party in celebration of the critically acclaimed graphic novel, Underground! This action-packed epic is written by Jeff Parker, with art by Steve Lieber and colors by Ron Chan.

Unfortunately, due to reasons beyond our control, the Underground trade paperback will not be released in time for the party. However! The party is still going strong, and we have some new goodies for you!

* We will have copies of the individual Underground comics FREE for party attendees (while supplies last)! Get ’em signed by the creators!
* Everyone who reserves a copy of the Underground trade at the party will get a FREE insert sketch from Jeff or Steve!
* Attendees will also get a FREE release party-exclusive print!

Published by Image Comics, Underground is about “Park Ranger and avid caver Wesley Fischer, who is on a one-woman mission to stop Stillwater Cave from being turned into a tourist trap. However, public opinion is not on her side. When locals begin blasting in the cave, Wes and a fellow ranger investigate–and a confrontation spirals into a deadly chase deep under the Kentucky mountains!”

TFAW would like to invite you to meet and mingle with the talented creators behind Underground, while enjoying FREE beer provided by MacTarnahan’s Brewing–Portland’s premiere “Four-Color Craft Brewers,” and FREE food from Clean Plate Catering!

It all starts at 8pm at the Hollywood Things From Another World on Wednesday, April 21.

Comments Comments Off on Lieber at San Diego.

In the wake of the Macbook Caper (in which Steve Lieber lost his laptop to thieving thieves), we’d like to thank the comics internet for rallying to spread the word on this book. A nice big influx of people visited this site and checked out the preview of Underground #1 last week, largely sent by retweets on Twitter. Probably much more than Steve could have waved in on his own had he not left a big sign on his house saying FREE LAPTOPS-OH, AND TAKE THE ADAPTERS TOO!

We want to thank you comics activists out there for spreading the word and giving us a boost at a dour time. You rule. And while Underground doesn’t condone vigilantism, we do admire the creative lengths some have gone too, notably writer Paul Tobin who has been invoking a variety of curses and arcane magic.

Thanks again, everyone!

– Parker
