I love getting out of the house and meeting fans and friends. I’ll be at the following shows in 2016—and maybe some more, but I’ll post those as they’re announced. If you wind near one of these at some point, be sure to say stop and say hi.
Beloit, WI. April 30, 11 AM–2 PM.
I’ll be signing my latest book, Marvel’s Captain America: The Ultimate Guide to the First Avenger. Stop on by and say hi, and wear something Cappy! I’m told that anyone wearing Captain America clothing or costumes will receive a 30% discount on the book.
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:
Meet Matt Forbeck, the author of CAPTAIN AMERICA: ULTIMATE GUIDE TO THE FIRST AVENGER. Test your Captain America expertise with a super-heroic trivia contest. Wear a costume if you’d like.
Boswell Books will be there too, selling copies of the book.
Milwaukee, WI. May 5, 4:30 PM.
The next day, I’m off to the Bay View branch of the Milwaukee Public Library that evening to sign more books. Boswell Books will be there again, selling copies of the book.
Naperville, IL. May 7. 2 PM.
On Free Comic Book Day, I’ll be at Anderson’s Bookshop in Naperville, Illinois, signing copies of my Captain America book and anything else I’ve worked on.

As part of Children’s Book Week, I’ll be signing my Captain America book at Wild Rumpus. According to their website:

A number of fantastic and growing shows have cropped up in Wisconsin over the past few years, and Nexus is one of the best. I’m slated to be a special guest at this year’s show.
San Diego, CA. July 20–24.
DK is bringing me out to Comic-Con again this year, to sign copies of my Captain America book. I always have a wonderful time at this massive show.
Indianapolis, IN. August 4–7.
There’s one show I never miss: Gen Con. I’ve been going since Gen Con XV in 1982, and I haven’t missed once. That makes this my 35th Gen Con in a row. Better yet, my birthday is on the show’s opening day, so there’s sure to be plenty of celebrating.
Madison, WI. November 4–6.
I had a fantastic time at Gamehole Con this year, and they’ve asked me to return next year as well. Another great show put on here in Wisconsin.
