Hoboken, NJ - Michael Watson, writer and creator of the new ITHAQA comic, is taking ITHAQA on tour to the city that shares its name, Ithaca, NY, as well as to neighboring cities, from March 20th through March 28th.  ITHAQA is a comedy-turned-Lovecraftian horror story that will appeal to readers who enjoyed HBO's "True Detective", but thought it would be copacetic if it had been set at the advent of the roaring 20s. In ITHAQA, filmmaker and conman, Mookie Smitts, stumbles upon the horrible Eldritch Truth of the cosmos, as a moving picture he is struggling to produce in the 1920's accidentally uncovers a plot to destroy the Spacetime Continuum.

In Ithaca, Watson's tour takes the comic to Buffalo Street Books on Friday, March 20th: Ithacon (the 45ᵗʰ year of this comic book convention!) on Saturday and Sunday March 21st and 22ⁿᵈ at Ithaca College; to Comics For Collectors on Wednesday, March 25ᵗʰ; and a comic book creation workshop for kids with the Wharton Studio Museum and The History Center taking place at the Tompkins Center for History & Culture the morning of Saturday, March 28th. More tour stops – possibly Elmira and Syracuse -- will be announced as they are confirmed.
