One of our favorite publishers, Vertical, has announced their upcoming plans for San Diego's Comic Con International and Baltimore's Otakon next month. On hand for book signings at each event will be Felipe Smith, the artist responsible for the hit series Peepo Choo -- a story about an American otaku and a Japanese girl, both of which have serious misconceptions of each other's country from their experiences with pop culture.
If you recall, we broke the news regarding Vertical's acquisition of the series back in September of last year; it's currently set to release later this month with a launch party being held at Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles on July 26th. The party should be open to the public and starts at 7 PM.
