Chloe 1

Last week, we introduced you to adorable vegan chef, Chloe Coscarelli. We were lucky enough to stop by her book signing and meet her in person, and boy is she adorable. Chef Chloe came ready to talk about food, and a batch of vegan mini cupcakes (major bonus points). To make matters even more unbearable (and we mean that in a good way), said cupcakes were adorned with glitter.

Chloe gave a talk about vegan cooking and what it means to be vegan, followed by a little Q&A session. Afterward there was a wonderful meet and greet, where the young chef proceeded to sign books and talk to her fans. She spent so much time with each person that the owners of Omnivore Books were ready to close up before she was done! Now that’s too much to handle (also in a good way).

Before Chloe left the bay, we managed to snag her for a quick interview! Check it: read more »


As you may have read on the Clog, Fantastic Comics held a book signing yesterday for the first issue of “Danger Club” written by Landry Q Walker and illustrated by Eric Jones. Of course, come Saturday afternoon, we at the Clog took a visit to Fantastic Comics and came away with the prize:

Check out those sweet autographs

Walker and Jones were very friendly and showed us a sneak peak (which we unfortunately couldn’t take photos of) of two pages that will be in the second issue, releasing in May. As we left Fantastic Comics with an autographed copy of “Danger Club” in our hands, we knew we had to read it. read more »

Random assortment of pretty covers!

For the comic book fans out there, Fantastic Comics will be hosting a book signing for the first issue of  “Danger Club”, a new title from Image Comics today at 5 p.m. In the world of “Danger Club”, the powerful and established superheroes left earth to battle a dangerous and evil force. However, the superheroes do not return, leaving their young apprentices to take control.  As you would expect from young, adolescent children, bitter inner conflict and violence ensue.  This interesting take on the superhero genre, which one review compares to Willam Golding’s “Lord of the Flies,” is written by Landry Q. Walker and illustrated by Eric Jones who both worked previously on titles such as “Batman: the Brave and the Bold” and “Supergirl: Cosmic Adventures in 8th Grade.” If you’re curious, Image Comics has some preview pages up on their website.

It’s always fun to meet authors and artists in the flesh, so take up this opportunity while you have free time during the weekend. And of course, get their autograph (and give them to us).
