By day, North Carolina resident Eastin DeVerna works in international education, but by night, he is an avid comic book reader and creator. His latest project, Samurai Grandpa, is the culmination of a partnership with cartoonist Shawn Daley and a successful Kickstarter campaign. Meet DeVerna at Main Street Books on Saturday morning to talk samurais, grandpas, and graphic novels.
When Samurai Grandpa begins, protagonist Ojichan has left the blade behind to live out his remaining days with his family in peace. But when a mysterious figure from his past resurfaces and his granddaughter goes missing, he is forced to set out on one last adventure. As he does, he must explore the depths of his own past, face monsters new and old, and question the choices which led to this final mission.
