The four prints were designed by Jordan Crane and hand-printed by Jordan Rae; each was
illustrated by a different accomplished artist (Lisa Hanawalt, Jon Vermilyea, Johnny Ryan and
Jordan Crane). Inspired by shooting range targets, the prints pay homage to the acclaimed
comic series. Available individually or as a set of four, the archival-quality prints measure 23 x 35 inches on acid-free 70lb. paper. Each print is limited to a run of 100 copies and will be signed by both the artist and Kirkman; single prints are $40 and the set of four is $150.

Robert Kirkman, creator and writer of The Walking Dead, says “I'm astounded by the talent
involved and couldn't be happier with how this turned out. I think people are going to love these prints and I hope it brings people into Secret Headquarters in droves because it's a great store.”

The prints are currently available for purchase as sets of four; individual prints will be available for purchase as of October 29th, either at The Secret Headquarters or via

OCTOPUS PIE book signing with Meredith Gran

book signing with
THIS Thursday July 15th
7pm - 9pm

Meredith Gran’s OCTOPUS PIE ( debuted in 2007 and quickly developed

a large fan base, making it one of the most popular comics on the Internet. The webcomic follows the adventures of nerdy and acerbic Eve Ning, who lives with her long-lost childhood friend (and perpetual happy stoner), Hanna, in Brooklyn. Initially published three times a week, and now posted in collected “episodes,” the stories and world of OCTOPUS PIE have developed over hundreds of strips. Now the first two years of the comic are collected in the beautiful Villard trade paperback OCTOPUS PIE: There Are No Stars In Brooklyn.

In the twilight zone between college and the adult world lies the sardonic, witty, maddening and
sometimes melancholy terrain that Gran’s addictive comic OCTOPUS PIE maps with devastating, drop-dead-funny accuracy. Crazed childhood rivals, art world hipsters, Eve’s meddlesome mom, and boyfriends past and present crowd their lives. These alternately hilarious and thoughtful vignettes of twenty-something life will ring true to any reader, and sharp situational humor and crazy characters give OCTOPUS PIE a unique charm that’s hard to resist.

A graduate of the School of Visual Arts, Gran is influenced by her experiences in Brooklyn, where she lived until she moved to Portland, Oregon (in a neighborhood that reminds her of her old home). She’s also made a name for herself within the webcomics community, organizing the first- ever webcomics convention of its kind, Webcomics Weekend in New England. The second annual convention takes place this November.
