NM – Hail to the Chin Signing

Actor, author and producer Bruce Campbell (Ash vs Evil Dead) appears at Marriott Pyramid North on Saturday, September 23rd at 2:00 PM! Tickets are available from Bookworks here…

Press Release:

Hail to the Chin is the new raucous and sardonic memoir from Bruce Campbell, a follow-up to the New York Times bestselling If Chins Could Kill. It’s been 15 years since his first memoir but Bruce is still living the dream as a “B” movie king in an “A” movie world.

Bruce Campbell makes his triumphant return from where he left off in If Chins Could Kill with further hilarious, gut-wrenchingly honest confessions.

Bruce brings us through his life in the decade since his first memoir and his roles as varied as they are numerous- from his roles in the Spider-Man movies to his self-referential My Name is Bruce to his role on #1 show Burn Notice and his new STARZ hit series Ash vs Evil Dead.

Over the last 15 years, Bruce has become a regular on the convention circuit, has created his @GroovyBruce twitter account with over 400,000 followers and a Facebook page with almost 250,000 likes. His profile and reach is lightyears beyond where it was for Chins.

Hail to the Chin will be bursting with pictures and the signature humor that Bruce brought to If Chins Could Kill and will be devoured by his legions of fans across the country.

Hail to the Chin co-author Craig “Kif” Sanborn has been working with Bruce Campbell for more than twenty years, contributing artwork and humor for all of Campbell’s self-referential works, including If Chins Could Kill: Confessions of a “B” Movie Actor, the novel Make Love! the Bruce Campbell Way, the feature film My Name Is Bruce, and Campbell’s own social media persona.

TX – Last Fan Standing LIVE

Actor, author and producer Bruce Campbell (Ash vs Evil Dead) appears at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema on Wednesday, September 13, 2017 at 6:00 PM! Tickets are available here…

Press Release:

We’re teaming up with Book People to celebrate our five-year anniversary with Bruce Campbell!

Each ticket includes a meet and greet with Bruce and a copy of his new book Hail to the Chin: Further Confessions of a B Movie Actor.

Last Fan Standing is the first LIVE Trivia Game Show celebrating Fandom & Pop-Culture, and here are just a few of the reasons you won’t want to miss it:

The Only Live Game Show Created Exclusively For Fans

Born from the world of Comic-Con, Last Fan Standing is an interactive trivia quest built from four primary pillars of content, that include:

• Fantasy
• Horror
• Sci-Fi
• Superheroes

Not your average quiz show or trivia contest, Last Fan Standing tests your knowledge about the things that really matter. Brought to life through a dynamic and entertaining live event, Last Fan Standing is the ultimate test of pop culture and fandom.

Bruce Campbell: The Grooviest Of Hosts

Bruce Campbell: Your Hero, our host. Well, he’s our hero too!

From his turn as Ash in the classic 80’s Evil Dead horror movie series, to his seven-seasons on Burn Notice, to the reprisal of his iconic character in Starz’ Ash vs. Evil Dead, Bruce Campbell has long been a fanboy favorite—and part of the braintrust behind Last Fan Standing. And it’s easy to see why: his sharp, self-deprecating wit has made his Comic Con panels top draws for years. In fact, Bruce’s 2015 Comic Con appearance in San Diego was outdrawn only by the panel for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

It’s A Game Show Experience Everyone Gets To Play

Last Fan Standing gives the entire audience the chance to play along and qualify to be on stage—and attempt to be The Last Fan Standing. Through provided “audience response devices” (Clickers if you insist on getting technical), each audience member participates in a series of multiple choice questions, where the players with the fastest-correct answers advance to the Podium Rounds. The Podium Rounds bring the top four (4) players from the audience to a winner-take-all battle of Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Superheroes, and Horror based trivia. After each round the player with the lowest score is eliminated, until there is only one….Last Fan Standing!

CA – Dark Night: A True Batman Story Signing

Meet writer and producer Paul Dini when he appears at the Grove’s Barnes & Noble on Saturday, September 23rd at 5:00 PM to discuss a Batman story like no other-the harrowing and eloquent autobiographical tale of his courageous struggle to overcome a desperate situation.

Legendary writer Paul Dini is best known as a producer and writer for several Warner Bros. Pictures Animation and DC Comics animated series, including Tiny Toon Adventures, Batman: The Animated Series, Superman: The Animated Series, and Batman Beyond. Dini is also the creator of Jingle Belle and co-creator of Harley Quinn.

Walking home one evening, Dini was jumped and viciously beaten within an inch of his life. His recovery process was arduous, hampered by the imagined antics of the villains he was writing for television including the Joker, Harley Quinn and the Penguin. But despite how bleak his circumstances were, or perhaps because of it, Dini also always imagined the Batman at his side, chivvying him along during his darkest moments. A gripping graphic memoir of one writer’s traumatic experience and his deep connection with his creative material, DARK NIGHT: A TRUE BATMAN STORY is an original graphic novel that will resonate profoundly with fans

Join Paul Dini for this Very Special Discussion and signing of Dark Knight: A True Batman Story on Batman Day.

OH – Wallace Shawn Signing

Acclaimed actor and writer Wallace Shawn appears to discuss and sign his new book Night Thoughts on Friday, September 22nd at 7:00 PM.

Although he is guided and inspired by the people he respects, and despite the insufficiency of his knowledge and experience – an insufficiency shared by most (or all) other humans, Wallace Shawn can’t see any real alternative to trying to figure out his own answers to the most essential questions about the world he lives in. Having recently passed the age of seventy, before which he found it difficult to piece together more than a few fragments of understanding, Shawn would like to pass on anything he’s learned before death or dementia close down the brief window available to him, but he may not be ready yet.

Wallace Shawn is an Obie Award-winning playwright and a noted stage and screen actor (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Gossip Girl, The Princess Bride, Toy Story). His plays “The Designated Mourner” and “Marie and Bruce” have recently been produced as films.
