CA – America 51 Signing

Corey Taylor, lead singer of Slipknot and Stone Sour, appears at Book Soup on Saturday, August 12th from noon till 3:00 PM to sign America 51: A Probe Into the Realities That Are Hiding Inside “The Greatest Country in the World.” 

ABOUT AMERICA 51:
A skewering of the American underbelly by the New York Times bestselling author of Seven Deadly Sins and You’re Making Me Hate You.

The always-outspoken hard rock vocalist Corey Taylor begins America 51 with a reflection on what his itinerant youth and frequent worldwide travels with his multi-platinum bands Slipknot and Stone Sour have taught him about what it means to be an American in an increasingly unstable world. He examines the way America sees itself, specifically with regard to the propaganda surrounding America’s origins (like a heavy-metal Howard Zinn), while also celebrating the quirks and behavior that make a true-blue American.

Balancing humor, outrage, and disbelief, Taylor examines the rotting core of America, evaluating everything from politics and race relations to family and “man buns.” By continuing the wave of moral outrage begun in You’re Making Me Hate You, Taylor skewers contemporary America in his own signature style.

IMPORTANT! All books signed at Book Revue events must be purchased at Book Revue. If you purchase the book prior to the event please save your Book Revue receipt. If you have purchased the book from somewhere else you can still get your book signed, we just ask that you make a purchase in our store of equal or greater value to that of the book.

In “Kingsman: The Golden Circle,” our heroes face a new challenge. When their headquarters are destroyed and the world is held hostage, their journey leads them to the discovery of an allied spy organization in the US called Statesman, dating back to the day they were both founded. In a new adventure that tests their agents’ strength and wits to the limit, these two elite secret organizations band together to defeat a ruthless common enemy, in order to save the world, something that’s becoming a bit of a habit for Eggsy…

SF – Hail to the Chin Signing

Author and B Movie legend Bruce Campbell appears at Books Inc. on Thursday, October 19th at 7:00 PM for a very special event celebrating his hilarious new memoir, Hail to the Chin: Further Confessions of A B-Movie Actor! Bruce will be reading from Hail to the Chin, answering Q & A, and signing his new book.

Signing Guidelines:

  • A Books Inc. receipt for Hail to the Chin is required for a place in the signing line.
  • Seating will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • The signing line order will be determined on a first-come, first-served basis.

  • About Hail to the Chin: 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 Wizard World 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.

Press Release:

THE STARS ARE SHINING — AND SIGNING — AT WARNER BROS.’ ICONIC BOOTH FOR COMIC-CON® 2017

Signings at the Warner Bros. Booth

BURBANK, Calif. (July 18, 2017) — Comic-Con 2017 is almost here, and with it comes the iconic two-story Warner Bros. booth (#4545), which will not only host the stars from 20+ TV shows and features, but also serve as a must-experience environment, including a re-creation of The Big Bang Theory living room set; a selfie station with Lucifer’s newly found angel wings; life-sized Funko DC Super Hero figures from the hit Warner Bros. Television/The CW series Arrow and Supergirl; and actual production props from the upcoming New Line horror film IT. Always a destination for Comic-Con fans, the Warner Bros. booth will deliver constant activities for visitors to enjoy, including talent appearances, autograph signings and more.

Here’s a closer look at this year’s Warner Bros. booth areas of interest:

ARROW SUPERGIRL GET FUNKO!

  • Talk about larger-than-life! A popular item on the Comic-Con floor, you’ve never seen Funko figures like this. See how you measure up against these super-scale DC Super Heroes of both Arrow and Supergirl from their respective series on The CW.
  • In addition to the DC Super Hero duo, fans will recognize life-sized Funko figures of Supernatural’s Sam and Dean Winchester guarding the Warner Bros. yacht moored behind the convention center.
  • Arrow returns for its sixth season on October 12, in its new night and time period (Thursdays at 9/8c) on The CW. Supergirl will have its third season premiere Monday, October 9, at 8/7c on The CW. Based on characters from DC, both series are produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.

CALTECH COMES TO COMIC-CON WITH A RE-CREATION OF THE BIG BANG THEORY LIVING ROOM SET!

  • Feel smarter. You’re in the presence of genius with a scale recreation of Leonard and Sheldon’s iconic Pasadena apartment from The Big Bang Theory. The ultimate backdrop makes the ultimate photo op! There’s a designated kiosk onsite to take photos and post to social (#WBSDCC), or fans can snap their own selfies. And you can even try out Sheldon’s spot on the couch — just don’t tell him…
  • The Big Bang Theory returns for season 11 on Monday, September 25 (8/7c on CBS). On October 2, the hit series moves to its regular timeslot of Thursdays at 8/7c. The Big Bang Theory is produced by Chuck Lorre Productions, Inc., in association with Warner Bros. Television.

ANGEL OR DEVIL? IT’S YOUR CHOICE WITH LUCIFER’S WINGS!

  • The City of Angels’ most charismatic devil rediscovered his wings in the second season finale of Lucifer. Lucky for fans, we’ve got those wings on loan after making our own deal with the devil. Fans will have the opportunity to picture themselves next to the heavenly wings when they visit the Warner Bros. booth.
  • Lucifer returns for its third season on October 2 in its new earlier time period (Mondays at 8/7c) on FOX. The series is produced by Jerry Bruckheimer Television in association with Warner Bros. Television.

FIND WHAT YOU TRULY FEAR WITH PROPS FROM…IT!

  • IT is coming. And there’s nowhere to hide from IT. Because IT knows what you fear the most. On exclusive display in the Warner Bros. booth will be a selection of actual props from the upcoming horror feature IT, based on the bestselling novel by Stephen King.
  • New Line Cinema’s horror thriller IT is based on the hugely popular Stephen King novel, which has been terrifying readers for decades. When children begin to disappear in the town of Derry, Maine, a group of young kids are faced with their biggest fears when they square off against an evil clown named Pennywise, whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries. Slated for release on September 8, 2017, the film will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures. For more information, visit www.itthemovie.com.
