Local FCPS Teacher and Comic Creator J.C. Thomas Signing Books at Big Planet Comics, DC

Sterling, VA February 11, 2017

J.C. Thomas, a Fairfax County Public Schools fourth-grade teacher and comics creator from Herndon, will be appearing at Big Planet Comics in Washington, DC on February, 18 to sign copies of his work. The event will be held at 1520 U St NW, Washington, District of Columbia 20009 from 2:00 to 4:00 PM. Established in 1986, Big Planet Comics is the DC-area's premiere source for comics and graphic novels.

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.

Images and promotional art are available upon request.
