Joe Lansdale Kicks Your Ass!


From the press release:

Houston, TX – April 27, 2021 – Of course Joe Lansdale kicks ass when it comes to novels and comics. He’s won 16 Bram Stoker Awards, a British Fantasy Award, the American Mystery Award, the Horror Critics Award, the Golden Lion Award, the Critic’s Choice Award, and so on and so on. That’s why he’s been bestowed the title “Champion Mojo Storyteller.”

But did you know that Joe Lansdale can kick your ass in real life? If you were standing here next to him and you looked at him funny, Joe Lansdale could literally kick your ass. And mine. And your neighbors. That’s because Joe is also the founder of Shen Chuan, Martial Science, which is one of the reasons he’s been inducted into the International Martial Arts Hall of Fame.

So Joe kicks ass both literally and literarily, and you can see both kinds at Comicpalooza where he will not only meet fans and talk about books, comics, and movies, but also demonstrate his martial arts ass kicking. Come see it first hand this Memorial weekend, May 27-29 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, Texas.
