Oct 12 – Angel City #1
Big Planet Comics is happy to welcome Janet Harvey for a signing of Angel City out from Oni Press!
Introducing ANGEL CITY, a hard-boiled 1930s noir starring Dolores Dare, previous Hollywood hopeful and current enforcer for the Volante mob. When her best friend turns up dead in a dumpster behind the Chinese Theater, Dolores starts her own investigation of the “April Fool’s Killer.” As she gets closer to the truth, the studios, the corrupt homicide division, and even her own gangland contacts work to cover up the scandal. Has she bitten off more than she can chew?
Janet Harvey is an award-winning writer of comic books, movies and games. She has written for Image Comics, IDW, Tokyopop and DC Comics, including the first full length adventure of Cassandra Cain in the “No Man’s Land” storyline. Her short films have played at festivals around the world, sold at Cannes, and won awards, including honors from Colin Vaines at the Weinstein Company. She recently wrote and directed her first feature length film, Scene Queen (www.scenequeenmovie.com).
