From Now On Book Release Party and Signing with Malachi Ward


FROM NOW ON Release Party!
Friday, April 29th
Beginning at 7pm

Our friend Malachi Ward has a new book from Alternative Comics collecting his various short sci-fi fiction! Join us as he embarks on a signing tour up the west coast in support of the book. Malachi will draw commissions, and have original artwork for sale, both from the book and his work with Matt Sheean on Island and Prophet.

“Malachi Ward is an exploding
super-nova of ideas. He is making some
of the most inventive, thought provoking,
beautifully crafted and strangely haunting
science-fiction in comics today.”

– Jeff Lemire
Author of Descender, Essex County, and Sweet Tooth
