Philadelphia Comic Con attendees can get an early jump on the festivities on Thursday night, when author Deborah Vankin celebrates the release of her new graphic novel “Poseurs,” a funny, poignant “party noir” graphic novel about identity, alienation and urban slang. The book signing and publication party will be held at the National Mechanics Bar and Restaurant, 22 South 3rd St. in Center City, from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m.
“Poseurs” follows three teenagers from distinctly different corners of Los Angeles who meet in the underworld of L.A. nightlife and Hollywood parties -- and get in over their heads! Jenna is a shy, artsy Echo Park teen who takes a part-time job as a “houseguest for hire.” She’s paid to party, undercover, at lavish soirees to “flesh out” the guest list. Pouri is a wealthy and spirited Taiwanese “parachute kid” who’s raising herself, alone, in a mansion on the outskirts of L.A. She hasn’t been to school in years and pays a seat-warmer to attend for her. Mac is a nerdy slang-junkie/busboy -- he’s the ninth most prolific contributor to an online, user-generated website of urban jargon. Youth slang is his freedom song. Together they become embroiled in a dangerous kidnapping plot that sends them careening out of control -- from the graffiti-tagged streets of L.A.’s Eastside to the bloated, billion dollar mansions of Bel Air, it’s a full-blown party noir.
Vankin will also be on site at the Pennsylvania Convention Center during Philadelphia Comic Con, at table 3083.
