Before Jules Verne's flying machines and H. G. Wells's spaceships, there was Frank Reade, globe-trotting inventor and original steampunk hero. Now he's back in a new book: Frank Reade: Adventures in the Age of Invention!
BONUS: There's a prize at the grand finale event! The first ten attendees who make it to all three events and get their "Land, Sea, and Air" passports stamped will receive a print of an original Frank Reade engraving signed by both authors, plus custom-stamped Frank Reade chocolate "gold coins" (which will also be available for purchase). Get your passport stamped at Floating World Comics February 8, then Bridge City Comics February and then at the final event at Things From Another World (Hollywood)!
