To do tonight: Teen Boat launch on a boat!

201205111129 To do tonight: Teen Boat launch on a boat!

We’ve been fans of TEEN BOAT since we saw the first mini comics, and the fact that they’re having a book launch ON a boat is entirely fitting.

Written and illustrated by New York cartoonists Dave Roman (Astronaut Academy) and John Green (Phineas & Ferb),Teen Boat! tells the hilarious story of a boy with the strange ability to transform into a yacht, and the kids at his school (as well as the pirates) who try to exploit his boat powers. Green and Roman began Teen Boat! as a series of photocopied, hand-stapled black and white mini-comics, and brought them to comic conventions across the country. Now it makes the transformation to a full-color, hardcover collection (with over 30 pages of never before seen story!), published by Clarion Books. It’s the first graphic novel to truly combine the angst of being a teen with the thrill of being a boat!

The book launch will be held on the Waterfront Barge Museum (check out the photo attached!), a 100-year-old, flat-bottomed wooden boat that will be docked at Hudson River Park, surrounded by historic tugboats. A “living museum”, the barge will also feature a boat art exhibit, in addition to showcasing original pages and drawings from the Teen Boat! graphic novel! The celebration will include books available from Mobile Libris, a live reading with visual presentation, and signings by the authors! Nautical themed snacks and refreshments! Live performances of original songs about Teen Boat! by Abby Denson and Jordan Cooper! Plus, several door prizes and other activities!
 
This all-ages event will be open to the public. Costumes and nautical attire are encouraged! So…come aboard, we’re expecting you!

  1. Actually, RSVPs aren’t necessary–just come on down! The boat will be docked at Pier 25 the whole time, so people are free to come and go as they please.

    Yikes! teenboat.com is definitely not for kids!
