Dewey's Comic City, 13 Park Avenue, Madison NJ, will host a signing by The Stuff of Legend artist Charles Paul Wilson III on Saturday, November 10th, from 1 until 3pm.
A New York Times Best-Selling Graphic Novel, The Stuff of Legend is a WWII era fantasy tale that follows a toy soldier, a teddy bear and a band of fellow toys against an evil tyrant and his army in another realm. Three volumes of The Stuff of Legend have been published to date.
Wilson will be meeting and sketching for fans, signing copies of the collected The Stuff of Legend volumes and signing copies of the latest chapter in The Stuff of Legend series, Toy Collector #1. Published by Th3rd World Studios, The Stuff of Legend is a haunting and ultimately redemptive tale of loyalty, camaraderie, and perseverance.

In 2010 he was nominated for The Russ Manning Most Promising Newcomer Award (Eisner) for his work on The Stuff of Legend. His work has also graced the covers and pages of the comic industry's top publishers such as IDW, DC and Marvel Comics.
