Chris Yura and "Two Italian Guys" at Baltimore Comic-Con

Two Italian Guys Comic Book Exclusive at Baltimore Comic-Con

Free signed, numbered mini-print with book purchase

Baltimore, Maryland - August 20, 2010 – From the migration, to the mob, to marinara, it’s the Italian-American experience like you’ve never seen it before! Recently released in May, indie comic Two Italian Guys is already generating a buzz with an Italian market-themed booth that is not to be missed.

Lucky fans will be able to get a free signed, limited convention exclusive mini-print as well as a Two Italian Guys novelty stress ball with a book purchase at the August 28-29, 2010 Baltimore Comic-Con. Creator and cartoonist Chris Yura will sign, number, and personalize each print, which is limited to only 100 copies.

"I still have a flyer from the first big comic show I went to over 15 years ago, and that inspired me to create something special to share with the Baltimore fans," said Yura. "We look forward to the Baltimore Comic-Con all year, and this souvenir print captures some of the excitement to enjoy long after this great weekend ends."

Combining a long running graphic novel with a short story format, the main tale of Two Italian Guys follows two first generation brothers who think they deserve more than dead end jobs and, if they ignore their father’s advice, may have found the answer. Short stories starring cantankerous TV chef Lou Peppino and his crew of talking veggies will have readers cooking Italian in no time…if Lou doesn’t get kicked off the air first! Wittily strung together with a hearty helping of mob hits and pop culture references, Two Italian Guys has a little something for everyone. Two Italian Guys (38 full-color pages, premium hardcover, retail price $12.95) is available for purchase direct from the publisher at and at

The eleventh annual Baltimore Comic-Con will be held Saturday and Sunday, August 28-29, 2010 at the Baltimore Convention Center. Convention hours are Saturday 10 AM to 6 PM and Sunday 10 AM to 5 PM.
