Update on Aug. 4 signing, art  
As a lot of you already know, I'll be doing a special signing at 7pm EST on August 4th at Barnes and Noble in Union Square, New York City. I'll be answering questions about The Mortal Instruments, Clockwork Angel, and City of Fallen Angels (a chapter of which is included in the paperback City of Glass which will be released August 3rd, and which I'll be signing that day. I'll also sign anything else you bring, but the bookstore does want you to buy your paperback copies of Glass there). I'll reiterate the information about upcoming book projects (no movie news!) that I announce in the 5pm Ustream Chat earlier that day. I will also have some Very Special Guests: blackholly and Maureen Johnson will be emceeing, and Nicole Virella, who is the artist doing the TMI comics will be there, too, talking about the experience of doing the comics and the process of what went into designing the characters — and giving away an original sketch as a prize. We'll also be raffling off a clockwork angel pendant like the one Tessa wears in the books.

I've been watching the graphic novel shape up myself and I couldn't be happier with how it looks. Below, a little more of Nicole's art:

Clary and Jace.

More Clary and Jace.

Clary and Ravener.

Clary and Izzy.

Clary looks at herself in the mirror at the Institute.

Three questions:

1) How much of the graphic novel is going to be in colour? (Obviously it would be so awesome if it was the whole thing!)

2) How many graphic novels are there going to be? Is CoB going to be contained in one volume or several?

3) News on the release date? Or a general ballpark, like this year?

I don't know but will hopefully have more information August 4th.

Awesomeee! :) It looks so cool. By the way - have you heard anymore about the movie?
Cassie Clarecassandraclare on July 26th, 2010 04:21 pm (UTC)
Nope. That's why I specifically said "no movie news." I don't want anyone getting excited and then being disappointed.

This is just <3 all over. Jace and Izzy look amazing, can't wait to see more of Alec...
gemsielu1 on July 27th, 2010 05:53 pm (UTC)
Wow that looks amazing, the Ravener looks nothing like I expected but Simon does. I expected Jace with shorter hair but that could just be my mind (:

I love the one of Izzie and Clary =]
Everybody is usually like Jace/Simon/Jace/Alec/Simon/Jace and I'm thinking what about Isabelle? She's good enough to get props too!

Oh and by the way is this the exact link I use to buy your signed books? I thought I'd ask you first so I didn't get them & think "Where's the signature?"

You might want to just call the store and order over the phone to be sure.

"but the bookstore does want you to buy your paperback copies of Glass there" Does this mean that if we get Glass the day before on its release date, we can't bring that copy to the signing? I wish Nicole would draw an image of Izzy drawing Clary's first mark with the stele! Hope to see you in Union Square!
Cassie Clarecassandraclare on July 30th, 2010 02:45 pm (UTC)
You'd really need to talk to the store about that. You can bring it; they might ask you to buy a second copy, or something. It really is up to them.

I definitely can't wait! It's going to be totally epic. ^_^ I absolutely loved the series (And I'm anxious for CoFA and CA), so it's going to be amazing to see it come to life.
