Yesterday, we were at the Brooklyn Book Festival, which was awesome: great weather, lots of people, lots of sales. Here I am with the merchandise:
In the first few hours, before it got really busy, Yiri and I drew this comic:
The figure with us behind the booth is our beloved publisher, Terry Nantier. The character visiting the booth is NarcissMan, one of Yiri’s creations.
We’re having a blast here in the States. Our next stop will be in Boston next Wednesday, at marvelous Harvard Square comic store The Million Year Picnic.
On Friday we’ll be back in Brooklyn, at the esteemed Bergen Street Comics. They made a really nice announcement, which is featured everywhere, even on Times Square I think.
Science: a Discovery in Comics has officially hit the stores and it’s time to officially promote it, with an official Promotional Tour! Margreet and Yiri are coming to the USA, and here are the dates and places:
September 14-15: SPX, Washington, table G1-2 (NBM Publishing)
September 22: the Brooklyn Book Festival, NBM Publishing booth
September 25: the Million Year Picnic, Cambridge – book signing

Margreet will be available for interviews or other public appearances – just contact NBM Publishing for more info.
Taking the occasion of a family vacation here in New York, Lewis Trondheim is taking some time from that to meet fans at Bergen Street Comics in Brooklyn this Friday at 8PM. Besides premiering his new series with Fantagraphics, the main occasion for this appearance, he’ll be signing Dungeon, Little Nothings and Papercutz’ Monster series, at least for as long as Bergen has stock!
Trondheim doesn’t make it that often over here so here’s a chance to meet him!
Word of warning: don’t be surprised if he sets fire to your Dungeon book after drawing Marvin the dragon breathing… fire onto the corner he will singe for you. Someone in San Diego actually got upset over this, sweartoGodcrossourheartshopetodie!
