NYC – Hollywood Babble On LIVE

Kevin Smith and Ralph Garman appear at Carolines on November 6th and November 7th at 9:30 PM both for a live recording of their podcast HOLLYWOOD BABBLE ON!

*Pre-sale starts August 9th and ends August 13th at 10:00PM ET

* Use promo code FNYCF

*Tickets go on sale to the public August 14th at 10 AM ET

Kevin Smith and Ralph Garman take a twisted look at showbiz news and bite the Hollywood hand that feeds them. Sometimes, they feel bad and give Hollywood a tetanus shot and some Neosporin, but, even then, they usually just turn around and bite Hollywood’s other hand. They can’t help it. It’s their nature. It’s like that “scorpion and frog” story. But, deep down, they’re just two nice East Coast boys… who happen to have a heavy dependence on drugs and alcohol, respectively.

Peter Capaldi, the 12th actor to portray sci-fi character Doctor Who in the popular TV series of the same name, will be a special guest at Rose City Comic Con 2017! VIP badges available now, autographs and photo ops coming soon.

Known to fans worldwide as the 12th Doctor, Peter Capaldi was born in Glasgow, Scotland. He started acting and singing at an early age and soon landed a lead role in the humorous vampire tale The Lair of the White Worm, co-starring Hugh Grant, and a supporting role in Dangerous Liaisons. He then went on to write and direct the 1993 short film Franz Kafka’s It’s a Wonderful Life, which won a BAFTA Award and an Academy Award in the Short Film (Live Action) category. Capaldi worked on several BBC projects for over a decade before portraying abrasive communications director Malcolm Tucker in the Armando Iannucci political sitcom The Thick of It, for which he won another BAFTA and was spun off into the film In the Loop. He has since starred in movies like World War ZThe Fifth Estate, and the upcoming children’s sequel Paddington 2. During a BBC live broadcast, it was announced that Capaldi would be the 12th actor to portray sci-fi character Doctor Who in the popular TV series of the same name. Capaldi, who kept his casting top secret, had appeared in the time-hopping show before, as a Roman merchant, as well as in its spin-off Torchwood. He portrayed The Doctor from 2013 to 2017, having recently announced that the upcoming season would be his last in the role.

He joins other great guests at Rose City Comic Con 2017, such as “Weird Al” Yankovic, Felicia Day, Dominic Cooper, Karl Urban, Katee Sackhoff, Brent Spiner, Jason Isaacs, Burt Ward, and dozens more.

NYC – Wonder Woman: Warbringer Signing

Author Leigh Bardugo (Grisha Trilogy, Six of Crows, Crooked Kingdom) appears at Barnes & Noble on Wednesday September 6th at 7:00 PM to discuss and sign Wonder Woman: Warbringer!

The highly anticipated, entirely new coming-of-age story for the world’s greatest super hero: Wonder Woman by the # 1 New York Times bestselling author Leigh Bardugo.

She will become one of the world’s greatest heroes: WONDER WOMAN. But first she is Diana, Princess of the Amazons. And her fight is just beginning…

Diana longs to prove herself to her legendary warrior sisters. But when the opportunity finally comes, she throws away her chance at glory and breaks Amazon law—risking exile—to save a mere mortal. Even worse, Alia Keralis is no ordinary girl and with this single brave act, Diana may have doomed the world.

Alia just wanted to escape her overprotective brother with a semester at sea. She doesn’t know she is being hunted. When a bomb detonates aboard her ship, Alia is rescued by a mysterious girl of extraordinary strength and forced to confront a horrible truth: Alia is a Warbringer—a direct descendant of the infamous Helen of Troy, fated to bring about an age of bloodshed and misery.

Together, Diana and Alia will face an army of enemies—mortal and divine—determined to either destroy or possess the Warbringer. If they have any hope of saving both their worlds, they will have to stand side by side against the tide of war.
