Comic Strip Creator Schedules Book Signing at Camp Hill Barnes & Noble

Robb Armstrong, creator of the JumpStart comic strip, will appear at the Barnes & Noble bookstore in Camp Hill on Saturday, Feb. 24, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. to sign copies of his book “Fearless: A Cartoonist’s Guide to Life.”

In his book and in his own words, Armstrong weaves personal stories of a traumatic childhood and the transcendent power of art together with drawing tutorials and original illustrations in a compelling guide to living through the good times and the bad.

Armstrong will be in Carlisle on Saturday evening as the featured speaker at Safe Harbour’s tenth annual “Night Without A Tux” fundraising gala. A native of Philadelphia, Armstrong struck gold with his daily strip, JumpStart, which he began in 1988. JumpStart strip is considered the most-widely syndicated comic strip from an African-American author in history.
