We'll have Matt Fitch, Chris Baker and Mike Collins all here to celebrate the launch of their new SelfMadeHero graphic novel Apollo on Thursday the 14th June, 7 - 9pm!
Apollo looks to be a bit of a gem: an attractive, accessible addition to the growing catalogue of science comics, told with an eye toward the humanity of its characters. Dead Canary Comics grandees Matt Fitch and Chris Baker have teamed with legendary British artist Mike Collins to present the story of the moon landing, told with a fresh new take on the material, all packaged in a lovely hardcover edition.
In 1969, mankind set foot on the moon. Neil Armstrong, Edwin ‘Buzz’ Aldrin and Michael Collins carried the fire for all of humankind. Backed by the brightest minds in engineering and science, the three boarded a rocket and flew through the void – just to know that we could. In Apollo, Matt Fitch, Chris Baker and Mike Collins unpack the urban legends, the gossip and the speculation to reveal a remarkable true story about life, death, dreams and the reality of humanity’s greatest exploratory achievement.
Matt, Chris and Mike will all be here to chat, sign and quaff a drink or two on Thursday the 14th June, 7 till 9pm. If you can't make it along but would like to get a copy signed, then preorder via our webstore for mail order or in-store pickup.
