Quirk Is Heading to New York Comic Con This Week! [And A Giveaway!]

Hey Quirk fans!

It's that time of year again. The magical time of year when I write up a blog post about New York Comic Con and start it with something like "it's that time of year again." Quirk is off to New York Comic Con for four days of fun, and we can't wait to see you! 

As always, we'll have awesome show specials, dishing out discounted books and free tote bags with purchases. Plus a select number of autographed titles will be available. We'll also have a number of posters to giveaway and Shakespeare's Star Wars buttons. 

We've got a lot of things planned inside and outside of our booth (#2236) this year. Check them out below, enter to win some Comic Con swag, and get psyched! Let's kick it off with this AMAZING poster for The Fangirl's Guide to the Galaxy, which we're giving away at the convention AND in the Rafflecopter below.

October is usually a time for orange leaves, pumpkins, ghouls, and ghosts. But, I think it should be a month of clockwork trains, aeronautical goggles, and steam-powered machines more amazing than you can imagine. In essence, October is steampunk.

October 15th marks the anniversary of when the New Orleans, the first US steamboat, made the long journey along the mighty Ohio and Mississippi Rivers from Pittsburgh, PA to New Orleans, LA.
