For Young Adults 12 & up! James Parks reads from Rickety Stitch and the Gelatinous Goo Book 2: The Middle-Route Run

July 29 @ 3:00 pm

Nimona meets Adventure Time in this full-color graphic novel as a singing skeleton continues to search for his origins alongside his gelatin monster sidekick!

Sunday, July 29, 2018 – 3:00pm
Rickety Stitch is a walking, talking, singing skeleton minstrel, the only animated skeleton in the dungeon who seems to have retained his soul. He has no idea who he used to be when he was covered in a living, breathing sack of meat and skin. His only clue to his former identity is a song he hears snippets of in his dreams, an epic bard’s tale that could also explain the old fog covering the comical fantasy land of Eem…Oh, and his sidekick and only friend is a cube of sentient goo.

In this pulse-pounding second volume, Rickety runs afoul of reanimated beasts, giant spiders, and a caravan of rowdy raiders on his quest to uncover the secret of Epoli and learn his true origins.

James Parks is a speculative fiction writer and graphic novelist living in the Bay Area. He was weaned on monster flicks, ghostbusting, lightsaber duels, samurai cinema, and comics–with a sober dose of Victorian literature and ’80s cartoons. Parks is also the author of the southern gothic horror collection The Gospel of Bucky Dennis, was a staff writer for Campfire Graphic Novels, and is a member of the Horror Writers Association.
