Special announcement: Only TWO comics shops in the entire United States will be stocking the signed bookplate edition of SATANIA! As you might have guessed, we are one of those shops!
SATANIA was written by Fabien Vehlmann, illustrated by a couple of friends of the Million Year Picnic, Kerascoët, and published by NBM. Kerascoët is the pen name of the charming couple Marie Pommepuy and Sebastien Cosset. You may have met them during their signing at the Million Year Picnic around this time last year or during their attendance as special guests of MICE: The Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo in October of 2016.
The book is complete and fully stocked at the publisher. They are waiting on the signed bookplates before they begin shipping. If you would like to reserve a copy of this book, you may do so by contacting the shop: You can call us at 617-492-6763, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can drop by the store at 99 MT Auburn ST in Cambridge, MA 02138. We are requesting a $10 deposit when you reserve a copy. The book will retail for $24.99.
Kerascoët is also known for the books Beautiful Darkness, Beauty, Miss Don’t Touch Me, and their work on the Dungeon series. They also illustrated Malala’s Magic Pencil by the Nobel Peace Prize winning young author Malala Yousafzai and released on 17 October 2017.
