TFAW Signing Event: Kelly Sue DeConnick

Wednesday, April 30, 2014- Thing From Another World's Portland store hosted the very talented Kelly Sue DeConnick for the release of her latest trade paperback: Pretty Deadly Vol. 1.

I picked-up a copy of Pretty Deadly and Ghost trade paperback's that Kelly Sue worked on.

I loved how she signed my copy of Ghost.

I was fortunate enough to be able to get-in some chat time and she told me that issue #4 of the current Ghost series will be her last on the title, but that it was one of her favorite that she's written. I know many of my readers are probably more familiar with her through her writing on Captain Marvel or Avengers Assemble, but my familiarity started with her work on Ghost starting in 2012, and this news is disappointing to me.

Fortunately, she assured me that the person who will be taking over the title after she moves away from it will be and excellent fit. I'll be looking forward to her last issue of Ghost and I can't wait to dig in to Pretty Deadly.

On a side note, most of my regular readers, as well as those who know me, know that I have a weakness for those Funko Pop Vinyl figures. I have several in my collection, and TFAW has several available... many of which I had never seen. If my willpower were weaker, I would have left the event with a greatly depleted bank account. Fortunately I kept my my purchases down to 2 figures my collection couldn't live without: Jay & Silent Bob!

For your amusement, here's a group that I doubt anyone would see combined in a comic crossover:
