V.E. Schwab's superhero novel Vicious booksigning

On Sept 27 2013, One More Page bookstore hosted Victoria Schwab (aka V.E. Schwab) "at a book signing for Vicious, a twisted tale of ambition, jealousy, betrayal and super-powers, set in a near-future world." I just finished the novel and enjoyed it. 

Here's a recording of her reading and Q+A in which Ms. Schwab declares herself for Marvel over DC. Here's more photographs.

Shattered Asian American Comics Anthology photos

Shattered: The Asian American Comics Anthology - A Secret Identities Book - had a booksigning at Busboys and Poets, Washington, DC, with editors Jeff Yang and Keith Chow, filmmaker Michael Kang and cartoonist Jamie Noguchi. The talk went for about an hour and a half and culminated in a 'design a supervillain' crowdsourcing event. The Stain is the audience-designed character drawn by Noguchi. The talk was enjoyable. I read a few stories in the book while waiting and enjoyed the ones by Kang and Noguchi; Bernard Chang's was disappointing because it concludes online somewhere. More pictures are online here.
