In conjunction with the Attract Mode videogame culture shop, Giant Robot is proud to host Game Night, a new event that takes place at GR2 every two months. Each evening will feature a different developer and its games in a relaxed, community-building setting.

For Game Night 2, Giant Robot is pleased to present artist Bryan Lee O’Malley, who will be celebrating the sixth and final installment of his Scott Pilgrim comic-book saga (adapted into a movie directed by Edgar Wright for Universal) and playing the brand new Scott Pilgrim video game (published by Ubisoft with art direction by Paul Robertson and music by Anamanaguchi).

O’Malley will sign volumes of Scott Pilgrim from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m.

Games will be played from 7:00 – 10:00 p.m.

Bryan Lee O’Malley is also featured as the cover artist of the July-August issue of Giant Robot magazine. Giant Robot was born as a Los Angeles-based publication about Asian, Asian-American, and new hybrid culture in 1994, but has evolved into a full-service pop culture provider with shops and galleries in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York City, as well as an online equivalent.

Game Night 2 will take place on August 21 from 5:00 – 10:00 p.m.

Sky Pirates of Valendor Tour

Everett Soares, Michael W. Kellar, and Keith Murphey sign their book across New England (and one in North Carolina).

Welcome to the World of Valendor, a bold new world where steam-powered ships sail across the sky and where you’ll find that the standard heroes come in any shape or form—even Pirate!

Life as one of the most notorious pirates in Valendor comes with its own set of ups and downs, and sometimes all Tobin Manheim wants is an easy job. His wish was granted when Governor Langford offered him one on a silver platter. Tobin saw an opportunity to make an easy coin and he pounced on it without question. However the costs became greater than the rewards. First cost – Tobin’s dignity. He has to work with his ex-wife. From there, things seem to go straight into the privy. Past accounts become due, parts of his ship explode and when things seem to brighten up, they only got worse. What happens though when Tobin reaches his limit and just wants the job to be over? Revenge!

For the next month, members of the Sky Pirates of Valendor crew will be traveling across the country promoting our solicitation in August Previews.

Great comics! Sketches! Original Artwork!

J.J. Sedelmaier and Joe Strike speak on Thursday, July 29, 7 PM

Admission: $5 | Free for MoCCA Members

Ambiguously Gay Duo (c) NBCUni/SNL

You may not be familiar with the name, but if you’ve seen MTV’s Beavis and Butthead, Saturday Night Live’s “Saturday TV Funhouse,” [adult swim's] Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law or Stephen Colbert’s Tek Jansen/Alpha Squad Seven, you’ve seen the work of J.J. Sedelmaier.

Since opening up his White Plains animation studio in 1990, J.J. and his studio have created hundreds of TV productions in an amazing variety of animation styles, from retro-1950′s TV commercials to transforming Garry Trudeau, Don Martin or Al Hirschfeld’s art into animated film form.

After screening samples of his studio’s work, J.J. and animation journalist and author Joe Strike will discuss his influences, career anecdotes and some of his best known and high-profile cartoons. In addition, J.J. talks about the forgotten history of the animation industry’s early 20th century New York origins.

ARTIFACTS: The event FIVE Years in the Making!

Thirteen mystical Artifacts, including the Witchblade, the Darkness and others, guide the fate of the Top Cow Universe.

Artifacts #1 is the perfect place for faithful readers to see their loyalty pay off, and for new readers to experience the Top Cow Universe.

From Top Cow Universe architect Ron Marz (Witchblade, Angelus) and Top Cow superstar artist Michael Broussard (The Darkness) comes an event series, which will literally shake the Top Cow Universe to its foundation.

RELEASE PARTY WILL FEATURE:

- A signing by the art team on the book, Michael Broussard and Rick Basaldua, plus publisher, Filip Sablik.

- Original Art from the issue displayed in the Gallery.

- An EXCLUSIVE Variant Cover ARTIFACTS #1, limited to 500 copies made and available ONLY from Collector’s Paradise

- An EXCLUSIVE Limited Edition Print, limited to 100 copies made, featuring the wraparound cover to the series with art by Michael Broussard.

- Free Beer, Refreshments and snacks will be available for the guests
 
The event will be held at Collector’s Paradise Comics & Gallery on Saturday July 31st, from 7 to 10 pm, with creator signings from 7-8pm.
