Hey Gang,
Real quick, Elk’s Run in it’s Collected Edition from Random House’s Villard Imprint is in Bookstores today.  It’ll be in comic shops next week it seems.  Please, help spread the word!

Here’s what some people are saying about it:

“Fialkov’s unique and sometimes disturbing coming-of-age adventure is engrossing and ultimately moving. “

Booklist

A smart thriller that’s as challenging as it is suspenseful.”

Las Vegas Weekly

“A story who’s heart is in it’s gritty precision.”

Publisher’s Weekly

So, I hope y’all check it out, and don’t forget, those of you in the L.A. area, we’re having our big release party next week Wednesday, complete with booze, West Virginia style appetizers, and free giveaways (including a limited number of gorgeous sketches by Noel).  More info on that here: www.hoarseandbuggy.com/blog/?p=578

Elk’s Run Toronto Release Party!

We’re international superstars.  Or haven’t you heard?  Now, if I could only figure out an East Coast and European Release Party, I’d be in business.

INDUSTRY NIGHT @ THE VIC

But… we’re going out with a bang. Our final Industry Night on April 26th at the Victory Cafe will be an official Toronto Launch for Elk’s Run by local boy Noel Tuazon. Elk’s Run is being published by Random House which is a huge deal and I hope everyone will come out and buy a copy of the book from the Beguiling who will be selling copies. Noel will be on hand to talk about the book and sign copies. For more info check here: www.randomhouse.com/catalog/display.pperl?isbn=9780345495112
