Local FCPS Teacher and Comic Creator J.C. Thomas Signing Books at Big Planet Comics, DC
J.C. Thomas is a writer, artist and public elementary school teacher from Northern Virginia. His first children's book, Ninja Mouse: Haiku, earned acclaim from both Publishers' Weekly and The Midwest Book Review, and won a Gold Benjamin Franklin Digital Award from the Independent Book Publishers Association. He has been with FCPS for six years.
He will be signing copies of Ninja Mouse: Haiku and The Gates of Dawn, an original graphic novel by Philadelphia-based writer Benjamin Finkel. Ninja Mouse: Haiku is a collection of haiku poetry with themes of martial arts philosophy and nature and includes Japanese translations. In The Gates of Dawn, a young girl with special powers and a nomadic veteran flee across a barren stretch of Utah as they're pursued by a dark terror. Finding themselves cornered and desperate, they're forced to make a final stand.
Both books are available at online and select brick-and-mortar retailers. Review copies are available upon request.
