To promote the launch of Marvel’s Captain America: The Ultimate Guide to the First Avenger next month, DK is sending me on a regional book tour. It includes stops in Beloit (my hometown), Milwaukee, Naperville, and Minneapolis, and it includes school visits as well as libraries and bookstores.
Details below, and I’ll update them on my Appearances page as we get closer to the events. If you’re within easy striking distance one of those areas, be sure to save the appropriate date!
DK is also bringing me out to Comic-Con International in San Diego this summer, for the second year in a row. It’s always a fantastic time, and I hope to see lots of you out there as well. Meanwhile, keep your eye out for my Captain America book, which debuts April 5.
Beloit, WI. April 14, 6 PM.
To celebrate the release of Marvel’s Captain America: The Ultimate Guide to the First Avenger I’ll be appearing at my local library to talk about the book, what I do for a living, and answer questions. Drop in to say hi, purchase a book, and have it me sign it for you.
Shorewood, WI. May 4, 6:30 PM.
This is the launch of my mini-book tour for my Captain America book. According to the Shorewood Library website:
