PANTHEON BOOTH #1041 AT NEW YORK COMICCON
Jacob Javits Convention Center, Level 3, Halls 3A & 3B
Missed us at San Diego? Here’s your chance to catch us on the east coast!
Come meet our authors! Dash Shaw/BODYWORLD (Pantheon) and Colson Whitehead/ZONE ONE (Doubleday, going onsale 10/18) will be joining us this year at NYCC.
If you haven’t picked up a copy of our two biggest releases of the year—here’s your chance! WORD bookstore will be at our booth selling Craig Thompson’s HABIBI (Pantheon, 9/7) and Art Spiegelman’s METAMAUS: Inside a Modern Classic, Maus (Pantheon, 10/4), along with a healthy selection of other Pantheon titles. We will also have Buttons inspired by each title on hand, for giveaway, as well as gorgeous posters specially designed by Craig Thompson for ComicCon. Also available for sale at the convention will be Glen Duncan’s THE LAST WEREWOLF (Knopf), a hit new novel that was all the rage in San Diego this past summer. And speaking of Wolves…
Be the first to find out about Anne Rice’s latest THE WOLF GIFT (Alfred A. Knopf, out next year), and secure your free mystery tchotchke inspired by the book. Stop by the booth to find out what it is, and for more information about Rice, go to annerice.com.
And if tchotchkes are what you like, don’t miss your chance to pick up our most unique giveaway item to date. Nearly a year before its onsale date, UNTERZAKHN by Leela Corman (Schocken, going onsale 3/20/12) was already the hit of San Diego ComicCon in July, where we were giving out panties with the word “unterzakhn” (Yiddish for “beneath the surface,” aka “underwear”) on them. Robot6 and other blogs covered the unique giveaway item and the panties will be handed out (in a limited quantity) throughout NYCC. Corman, who moonlights as a professional belly dancer, has illustrated books on subjects ranging from urban gardening to the history of the skirt, and her work has also appeared in the New York Times and on WNET/Thirteen. For more on Corman and the new book, go to leelacorman.com.
Stieg Larsson’s THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO (Alfred A. Knopf), has been adapted into film for the US, with its release at the end of the year. Watch the trailer, pose next to a poster of Lisbeth Salander at our booth—the heart of Larsson’s novels—and check out the full trilogyat NYCC.
Finally, NYCC is your exclusive chance to get a sneak peak at what Chris Ware has been working on (his next book with Pantheon, fall 2012). Don’t miss your chance to get a first glimpse.
We can hardly wait to see you at the show!
