This year is full of anniversaries: Adam West’s Batman is 50, Frankenstein is 200, and 950 years ago, the super influential Battle of Hastings took place. You know, that 1066 skirmish between King Harold Godwinson and William the Conqueror that ignited the Norman conquest of England. Doy.
Author Tyler Button and illustrators Gerry Kissell and Amin Amat have captured the dramatic events leading to the Battle of Hastings in their graphic novel Bayeux, and they’re celebrating the battle’s anniversary with the Bayeux Book Release Party, presented by Tapestry Comics.
The free talk, signing, and party run from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on Friday, October 14, in the First Draft Book Bar at Changing Hands Phoenix, 300 West Camelback Road. Call 602-274-0067, or visit www.tapestrycomics.com.
