Kansas City Comic Book Launch Party!

KANSAS CITY, Missouri — Save the date for cupcakes & braaains!

Friday, November 5th, 2010, you’re invited to 419 E. 18th St., which is literally right next door to Grinders, to celebrate First Friday and the launch of a new comic book, Yellow. (“Just another post-zompocalyptic comedy adventure love story.”)

Come on down from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. to pick up a special, full-color, fully-awesome preview edition of the first issue, “Auld Lang Zombie.”

Unless you’re undead, you’ll also enjoy the live music (KC’s own The Straight Ups), libations (cash bar hosted by Grinders), and luxurious cupcakes (Takes the Cake mobile bakery).

There will also be posters, t-shirts, and even free temporary tattoos (just to show the world you still support Zombietowne). We'll even be giving away a movie poster signed by famed horror director Eli Roth, just because.

Best of all, get your picture taken with a real live dead girl. Members of the metro’s newest roller derby league, the Dead Girl Derby, will be hanging out all night.

Limited copies of the original 4-issue run of Yellow as written and drawn by writer Bobby Bierley will also be for sale for anyone into the whole “nostalgia” thing.

(*Guest appearances are subject to change.)
Yellow tells the story of Quinn Quigley, a lonely high school outcast who falls in love with the most beautiful zombie at Zombietowne, the world’s first zombie zoo. When Quinn takes it upon himself to “rescue” the living dead girl from a life behind bars…well, you’ll just have to read to find out.

Yellow features art by ‘Zeu’ Gouveia, colors by Giuseppe Pica, letters by Ed Brisson, and an amazing cover by Ralph Abou Raad. All based on script by Bobby Bierley.

So, there you go. Be there, or be cupcakeless.
