Dan Merritt on Jane Irwin at Green Brain Comics 9/29 (PR)
posted September 25, 2007
Green Brain Comics is happy to announce a signing with Kalamazoo's Jane Irwin and the debut of her new graphic novel "Vogelein: Old Ghosts", the sequel to Jane Irwin's first graphic novel "Vogelein: Clockwork Faerie".
On Saturday September 29th at Green Brain Comics, Jane Irwin brings a pile of the freshly printed graphic novel "Vogelein: Old Ghosts" to the store for a special signing/release party!
"Jane Irwin has spun an urban faerie tale with a rich and tragic past." says Green Brain Comic's event coordinator Dan Merritt, "Each scene is a glimpse into the history of a three hundred year old clockwork faerie using Jane's evocative art and writing skills as the divining pool."
Vogelein is the story of a clockwork faerie come to life. She was completed and first wound in 1671, though it took her creator, Heinrich Uhrmacher, over thirty years to finish crafting her. She remains â€œaliveâ€ as long as she is wound each day, and remembers everything she has ever seen or heard as long as she doesnâ€™t wind down. If she does, she begins to lose her memories, starting with the most recent, and continuing to her earliest recollections â€“ the longer she remains stopped, the more she loses.
Come by for the release of "Vogelein: Old Ghosts" with a book signing with Jane Irwin at 6pm, and stick around for the party. Green Brain has extended hours this evening only with a special comic jam going on until 9pm. Join in and add the next story panel to improvised comic pages.
Green Brain Comics is located in Dearborn, at 13210 Michigan Ave. 3 blocks east of Schaefer Rd. in the East Dearborn Downtown District.
