SelfMadeHero and Nick Abadzis at MoCCA

3 April 2014

It’s that time of year again: the days are getting longer, the weather’s getting warmer, and MoCCA Comic Arts Festival is upon us! Once again, SelfMadeHero are in New York City to fly the flag for British and European graphic novels, and we’ve got one very special guest joining us.

Following on from the launch of his brand new graphic novel at the Strand bookstore on Thursday night, Nick Abadzis will be signing copies of The Cigar that Fell in Love with a  Pipe at SelfMadeHero’s stand (tables A18 and A19) throughout the weekend. What’s more, if you buy a copy of the book, you’ll go home with one of these exclusive Cigar-themed book plates

Plus, there’ll be exclusive discounts on all SelfMadeHero titles throughout the weekend. There’ll also be a chance to get your hands on our brand new US releases: The Park by Oscar Zarate, a stunning graphic novel by the artist behind the Eisner-winning A Small Killing (with Alan Moore); The Boxer by Reinhard Kleist, a moving biography of Holocaust survivor and champion boxer Harry Haft; and the first volume of Frederik Peeters’ Angoulême-winning science fiction series, Aama.
