Hey Chi-town friends, the Top Shelf Swedish Invasion is coming to you! Starting Friday and all weekend long, the new Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2) takes over the lakeside McCormick Center in downtown Chicago, and we’ll be there in full force!
Come out and meet:
- Indie comics superstar Jeffrey Brown, signing his vast array of graphic novels and debuting his awesome new book Undeleted Scenes!
- Super secret spymaster Matt Kindt, debuting Super Spy (vol. 2): The Lost Dossiers, a book filled with more gadgets and cool tricks than Batman’s utility belt!
- Swedish Invader #1: Mats Jonsson, author of the hilariously painful hipster memoir Hey Princess!
- Swedish Invader #2: Simon Gärdenfors, author of the wild travelogue The 120 Days of Simon, a true story of sex, drugs, and hip-hop!
- Swedish Invader #3: Kolbeinn Karlsson, author of the surrealist fever dream The Troll King, full of magical biology and neo-traditional folklore!
- And the phenomenal Nate Powell, author of the Eisner-Award-winning tale of adolescent schizophrenia, Swallow Me Whole!
And don’t forget to swing by the Nerd City / Top Shelf Swedish Invasion party, Saturday, April 17, at the Double Door in Wicker Park!
