Batwoman: Elegy

Art by JH Williams

Batwoman: Elegy, which collects Greg and JH Williams’ run on Detective Comics, has been seen on several 2010 best-of lists that are starting to appear:

As #2 on a list of Amazon editor’s picks for Best Books of 2010: Comics & Graphic Novels

On Publishers Weekly’s Best Books of 2010 list, where they describe the book as:

A crazy-intense achievement of spectacular artwork tells the story of Kate Kane, a gay former Marine who must save Gotham City from a crime-worshipping cult.

And on the Texas Library Association’s Maverick Graphic Novel Reading List, where Elegy is spotlighted in the Young Adult / Adult section.

Greg adds Nov. 9 Dallas appearance

Greg’s literary agent, David Hale Smith, sends the following news:

Please join us in celebrating the publication of Greg Rucka’s new novel, THE LAST RUN. Greg is a New York Times best-selling thriller writer, screenwriting film producer and acclaimed comic book creator from Portland, Oregon. He is going to be in Dallas on November 9. I am hosting a happy hour/book-signing at Rathbun’s Blue Plate Kitchen. Greg will be signing the new book, answering questions and reading from his new novel-in-progress. Barnes & Noble will be on hand to sell books.

Entertainment Weekly says of Greg’s book series: “A Swiss watch of a thriller, well-machined, precise, and inexorable…The rare spy thriller that rewards patient readers with action that feels earned, not forced, with facts that feel researched, not made up, and with revelations that cause shivers, not disbelief… And it doesn’t hurt that Chace is the most tough-as-nails-but-still-shag-worthy secret agent since Mata Hari.”

Last Run Updates

Back home for the moment, before heading down to LA tomorrow (Saturday) for the LA Mystery Bookstore signing (with Michelle Gagnon!). If you’re in the LA area, please stop by!

And then, Houston on Monday, for Murder by the Book. Tuesday morning, heading up to Dallas, and Tuesday night, we’ve got a special event planned, thus:

November 9th, from 5 to 6:30, at Rathbun’s Blue Plate Kitchen, we’re having a Happy Hour signing. This is open to the public, and we will be selling copies of the new novel, as well as – hopefully – comics, too. This is looking to be a laid-back, fun time to just socialize and chat, and – again – it’s open to the public. Hope to see you there!

And once again, if you’re looking to get a signed and/or personalized copy of the new novel, but are unable to attend any of the signings, I urge you to please contact one of the stores listed on the Appearances page. They’ll be happy to take your order, and I’ll be sure to sign your book (and include your numbered bookplate) when I’m at the store.

Also worth repeating, my signing policy: Yes, I am happy to sign comics and earlier novels!

Last (at least for the moment), a HUGE thank you to everyone who’s come out to the signings thus far. I sincerely cannot thank you enough for your support!
