This is a statement that the working class will agree with: We need more days in February! Taking into account a possible leap year, those extra two or three days could mean the difference between a penalty or making a payment on-time.
Am I right!
Just sent in my final edits for Lindol #4 (with the award winning artist Randy Valiente) and my new book OBIsessions #1 (with Jann Galino).
If everything is in the can we should start printing by the middle of March and be ready of the April 13 launch during Summer Komikon 2019!
After making it to Big Bad Wolf Book Sale for the third year in a row, I guess my family and I can now confidently label the annual event as a family tradition. Since 2017, we have made it a point to grace The World Trade Center in Pasay City–site of the Big Bad Wolf Sale–on sale’s first day.
I am a big believer in the saying, “The early bird catches the worm,” and have always felt more confident in our chances of scoring great book finds if we made it a point to come on opening day.
My BBWS 2019 Haul
To be fair, I didn’t go into this year’s sale blind as some members of the Facebook groups that I am a part of went to the VIP pre-event sale held the day before. The aforementioned FB group members took several photos of all the graphic novels on display which made it easier for me to zero in on the books that I was interested in.
When I arrived at The World Trade Center this afternoon (5:10 pm), all of the books that I wanted were still on the tables with the exception of Graphic Ink: The DC Comics Art of Frank Quitely (2014). Man, I really wanted that one.
So, this is what I ended up getting:
Bong Redila’s Melag (2016)
Vertigo’s Survivors Club [Lauren Beukes] (2016)
Empress Book One [Stuart Immonen and Mark Millar] (2017)
Chuck Palahniuk’s Choke (2001)
Chuck Palahniuk’s Pygmy (2009)
Chuck Palahniuk’s Legacy: An Off-Color Novella For You To Color (2017)
The Big Bad Wolf Sale 2019 is a 24-hour event that will run for 10-days (February 22 to March 4, 2019)
Yes, there are novels based on Robert Kirkman’sThe Walking Dead series.
Over a three-year period, The Walking Dead co-creator and writer worked with author/director Jay Bonansinga on three tie-in novels[i] chronicling the journey of Brian Blake–the man whom we would come to know as The Governor. Fortunately, I was able to find the first two books during one of my legendaryBooksale runs [The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor (2011) and The Walking Dead: The Road to Woodbury (2012)] and the third during the Big Bad Wolf Books event in 2017 [The Walking Dead: The Fall of the Governor (2013)].
