When: Wed., May 11, 7 p.m. 2011

Oakland's own Jason Shiga - creator of the bibliophile mystery Bookhunter and the "Choose Your Own Adventure"-gone-2.0 kids' book Meanwhile - will celebrate the release of his latest graphic novel, Empire State: A Love Story (or Not), at the recently opened Escapist Comic Store (3090 Claremont Ave, Berkeley) on Thursday, May 12. The wistful, funny romance follows pop-culture-savvy (but decidedly unworldly) Jimmy as he hops a bus from Oaktown to the Big Apple with one intention: to finally declare his love for his best friend. 7 p.m., free. 510-652-6642 of
