Rickety Stitch: The Road to Epoli Book Launch

Join the festivities as we celebrate the release of the fantasy graphic novel series, Rickety Stitch and the Gelatinous Goo Book 1: The Road to Epoli. Ben Costa and James Parks will be there: signing books, handing out stickers, talkin' shop, and merrymaking! – – About the Series: Meet Rickety Stitch…a walking, talking, singing skeleton bard. He’s the one skeleton in the dungeon who seems to have retained his soul, and he has no idea why. Rickety's only clue to his former identity, is a song he hears in his dreams, an epic bard’s tale about the Road to Epoli and the land of Eem. – – – Early Praise: Rickety Stitch and the Gelatinous Goo is a Junior Library Guild selection, and receiving praise from across the industry. "Costa and Parks’ script is imaginative and laugh-out-loud funny, unafraid to crack a well-timed, verging-on-naughty joke. Costa’s art is unfalteringly, vibrantly buoyant, with many sight gags that effortlessly turn the profane into something adorably laughable. A cliffhanger ending leaves readers poised for the sequel—they will be clamoring." — Kirkus (starred review) "Rickety Stitch is full of wonderful characters and pacing…and what surprises! Storytelling stripped down to the bare bones." — Stan Sakai, Eisner Award Winning Creator of Usagi Yojimbo "Dazzling, inventive and fun. Ben Costa and James Parks manage to both spoof and pay homage to the fantasy tradition, while creating characters we care about. A tour de force." — Jason Shiga, Ignats Award Wining Creator Meanwhile
