In September 2018 Ezra Claytan Daniels’s Upgrade Soul launched with a signing at premier independent Black-owned bookstore, Eso Won. Following the Launch Ezra Clayton Daniele’s will stop by Philadelphia comic book store Amalgam Comics & Coffeehouse just before New York Comic Con on October 3 to begin his nationwide book tour accompanied by Ignatz and DiNKy Award–winner Ben Passmore.
For their 45th anniversary, Hank and Molly Nonnar decide to undergo an experimental rejuvenation procedure, but their hopes for youth are dashed when the couple is faced with the results: severely disfigured yet intellectually and physically superior duplicates of themselves. Can the original Hank and Molly coexist in the same world as their clones? This page-turning graphic novel follows Hank and Molly as they discover the brutal reality that only one version of themselves is fated to survive.
“The only reason I make comics is to reach people, but the other half of that is letting people respond,” says Upgrade Soul creator Ezra Claytan Daniels. “That’s the best part about going on tour, and with Ben riding shotgun, there’ll be no shortage of discourse and adventure.”
Ezra’s cross-country signing tour with Your Black Friend artist Ben Passmore kicks off at the legendary Philadelphia comic book store Amalgam Comics & Coffeehouse just before New York Comic Con on October 3.
Following that, Ezra will appear in the Lion Forge Booth #1936 at New York Comic Con before embarking on this national book tour.
- Friday, October 5, 2018, 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM
- Sunday, October 7, 2018, 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM
After NYCC, the book tour will continue on to Pittsburgh at the Copacetic Comics Company, followed by stops in Chicago, St. Louis, Overland Park, Sioux City, Omaha, Salt Lake City, San Francisco, Oakland, and Portland.
