Marcus To will be signing at Page & Panel on April 21st, the day after the book’s release, and he’ll be joined by Toronto artist and Joyride series colourist Irma Kniivila, AND the first issue’s variant cover artist Nimit Malavia (that’s their cover up-top).

ABOUT JOYRIDE #1:
In the future, Earth sucks. The stars have been blocked out for so long that people have forgotten there was anything else besides the dumb World Government Alliance watching over them, training children to join the militarized Allied Youth and eliminating all resistance with a giant ray gun. Uma Akkolyte is a girl who shoots first and leaps before she looks, and when she gets a strange message from outside the barricades of SafeSky, she jacks a spaceship and punches through the stratosphere with an unlikely crew of teens who are totally not ready for what they’re about to find.
