Saturday July 20th marks the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, and to celebrate we’ll have writers Christopher Baker and Matt Fitch here from 1-2pm to sign copies of their excellent graphic novel Apollo!
Dead Canary Comics grandees Fitch and Baker teamed with legendary British artist Mike Collins last year to present the story of the moon landing, told with a fresh new take on the material that really digs into the humanity of the people at the heart of the historic event.
“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 and Chris will be here to mark the anniversary on Saturday July 20th, 1-2pm. The book is a wonderful commemoration of the landing, and is a great gift for anyone interested in the subject. You can pre-order a signed copy for collection or mail order through our webstore here.
