The United States of Murder INC.

by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming

From the creators of the Eisner Award-winning, best-selling POWERS comes a brand-new world of crime fiction like you’ve never seen before. In this oversized first issue, you will discover a world in which the families of organized crime never lost their stranglehold on the United States. Today is the day that Valentine Gallo becomes a made man, and it’s also the day he learns the secrets behind the organization he has served since he was old enough to walk. But it is mysterious hitwoman Jagger Rose that will forever turn his life upside down. Be there when shocking secrets of this new world spill out onto the very past page. This bold new vision of crime fiction harkens back to Bendis’ earliest work in crime comics, while also giving you everything you expect from the creators of POWERS, one of the most successful and longest-lasting independent comics in history.

This will be an extremely limited capacity event and each attendee will be checked-in at the door. Due to limited space, we can not offer +1.

New York, NY, September 7, 2011- Midtown Comics in New York City is proud to present Craig Thompson signing his new book HABIBI at Midtown Comics Downtown on Tuesday, September 20th from 12:00PM to 2:00PM.

HABIBI will be available at all three Midtown Comics stores on September 20th. Purchase is required to attend signing.

Craig Thompson is best known for his 2003 graphic novel Blankets, for which he won several awards for including three Harvey Awards, two Eisner Awards, and two Ignatz Awards. His work also includes his 1999 graphic novel Good-bye, Chunky Rice and his 2004 graphic novel/travelogue Carnet de Voyage.

HABIBI is a deeply romantic story that explores and celebrates the beauty and cruelty, the complexity and depths of the Islamic world. Craig’s stunning artwork is matched by the haunting stories of his characters’ lives. Set in a mythical Middle East, at once contemporary and timeless, HABIBI is a parable about our relationship to the natural world, about the cultural divide between the First World and the Third World, and about the common heritage of Christianity and Islam. The magic of storytelling allows us to see the fragility embedded in cruelty, to understand how beauty can preserve us from destruction and how love can save us from loss of hope.
