Dark Horse Comics - Shannon Wheeler signing at Powell's on Hawthorne 11/29
"Shannon Wheeler signs his new book Screw Heaven, When I Die I'm Going to Mars. Go to Powell's on Hawthorne and say hello on Thursday, November 29th @ 7:30 PM. For longer than a decade, Shannon Wheeler's flagship character Too Much Coffee Man has cast his tender, cynical gaze on lots of stuff that deserves to be made fun of, from the insipidity of coffee consumer culture to the horrendous reality of dating. Wheeler's latest collection of short cartoons, Screw Heaven, When I Die I'm Going to Mars (Dark Horse), steps back from the cartoonist's usual scrutiny of mundane pettiness and takes a look at life's bigger issues. The result is "frequently sweet, entertaining, smart" (The Onion)."
