CA – The Disaster Artist Signing

Tommy Wiseau (actor/director) and Greg Sestero (actor and author) visit Amoeba Hollywood on Tuesday, March 13th at 5:00 PM to celebrate the Blu-ray & DVD release of The Disaster Artist, the movie based on the book based on the movie, The Room.

The Disaster Artist (available on Blu-ray/DVD March 13th) is based on the making of Tommy Wiseau’s cult-classic disasterpiece The Room (“The Greatest Bad Movie of All Time”). Director and star James Franco transforms the true story of aspiring filmmaker and infamous Hollywood outsider Tommy Wiseau — an artist whose passion was as sincere as his methods were questionable — into a celebration of friendship, artistic expression, and dreams pursued against insurmountable odds.

CA – Liz Climo Signing

Cartoonist Liz Climo appears at Vroman’s Bookstore on Saturday, March 24, 2018 at 1:00 PM to sign her latest book CAN SOMEBODY PLEASE SCRATCH MY BACK?

Persnickety Elephant has an itch–a big one–and he can’t reach it! While he isn’t above asking for a little help, no one is up to the task. Turtle is too lazy, Snail is too slimy, and Alligator… well, Elephant isn’t sure he wants his assistance. Does Elephant have to do everything himself?

Jory John’s signature deadpan humor pairs perfectly with Liz Climo’s oh-so-innocent-looking animals to create a slyly ironic read-aloud that will leave kids and parents in stitches.

Liz Climo grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and moved to Los Angeles after college to work as a character artist on The Simpsons. She is the author of Rory the Dinosaur, The Little World of Liz Climo, and Lobster is the Best Medicine.

Those wishing to get books signed will be asked to purchase at least one copy of the author’s most recent title from Vroman’s. For each purchased copy of the newest title, customers may bring up to three copies from home to be signed. This policy applies to all Vroman’s Bookstore events unless otherwise noted. Save your Vroman’s receipt; it will be checked when you enter the signing line.

Born in Oakland, California, Mark Hamill was discovered in a workshop musical comedy called Anthems in E-Flat Calliope the summer before becoming a theatre arts major at Los Angeles City College. There he learned all aspects of theatrical production and appeared in numerous plays and musicals.

For six years Hamill did guest appearances on multiple TV series and television movies, including a nine-month stretch on General Hospital and a starring-role on the critically-acclaimed comedy The Texas Wheelers. His first feature film was in George Lucas’ Star Wars.

Hamill’s career has encompassed all aspects of the entertainment industry, including stage, screen, television and new media. Best known as Luke Skywalker in George Lucas’ original Star Wars trilogy, he recently returned to the role in J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens and in Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

His film credits include Corvette Summer, Samuel Fuller’s The Big Red One, Slipstream,Walking Across Egypt, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Sushi Girl, Kingsman: The Secret Service, and Brisby Bear. Hamill also directed and starred in the cult mockumentary Comic Book: The Movie.

A prolific voice-over artist, Hamill has performed in countless animated series for television, feature films and video games. He played the unforgettable role of the Joker in Batman: The Animated Series, reprising the character for both the Arkham Asylum video game series (for which he received a BAFTA Award) and the 2016 groundbreaking animated film, Batman: The Killing Joke. He also returned as the Trickster on CW’s The Flash, a role he first played in the original CBSseries.

Hamill has re-teamed with Wing Commander franchise creator Chris Roberts for Star Citizen: Squadron 42 with Gary Oldman, Gillian Anderson and Ben Mendelsohn. Hamill will receive his well-deserved star perfectly timed to the In-Home release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi on Digital and Blu-ray March 27th.

CA – An Evening with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar appears on Wednesday, March 21st at 8:00 PM to discuss his book, Becoming Kareem: Growing Up On and Off the Court.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is the NBA’s all-time leading scorer and a Basketball Hall of Fame inductee. Since retiring, he has been an actor, a basketball coach, and the author of many New York Times best sellers. Abdul-Jabbar is also a columnist for many news outlets such as The Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine, The Guardian and The Hollywood Reporter writing on a wide range of subjects including race, politics, age, and pop culture. In 2012, he was selected as a U.S. Cultural Ambassador and in 2016 Abdul-Jabbar was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian award which recognizes exceptional meritorious service.

At one time, Lew Alcindor was just another kid from New York City with all the usual problems: He struggled with fitting in, with pleasing a strict father, and with overcoming shyness that made him feel socially awkward. But with a talent for basketball, and an unmatched team of supporters, Lew Alcindor was able to transform and to become Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

From a childhood made difficult by racism and prejudice to a record-smashing career on the basketball court as an adult, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s life was packed with “coaches” who taught him right from wrong and led him on the path to greatness. His parents, coaches Jack Donahue and John Wooden, Muhammad Ali, Bruce Lee, and many others played important roles in Abdul-Jabbar’s life and sparked him to become an activist for social change and advancement. The inspiration from those around him, and his drive to find his own path in life, are highlighted in this personal and awe-inspiring journey.

CA – An Evening with Robert Kirkman

Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead, Invincible, Outcast) appears in conversation with Jason Mantzoukas on Tuesday, March 13, 2018 at 8:00 PM to discuss his work and launch of new comic book series, Oblivion Song.

*All tickets include a signed copy of the inaugural issue of Kirkman’s new comic book series, Oblivion Song

Robert Kirkman is creator, writer and executive producer of The Walking Dead on AMC TV and Outcast on Cinemax. He is also a successful creator of independent comics. He created and continues to write the long-running Image Comics title The Walking Dead, on which the show is based, and the comics have been gaining popularity throughout its run. He also writes the acclaimed and equally long-running super-hero comic Invincible, which he created with Cory Walker, and the all-ages comic Super Dinosaur, which he created with Jason Howard

Oblivion Song is a unique take on the sci-fi genre that lives somewhere in between being less depressing than Kirkman’s The Walking Dead but not as fun as his second-longest running book, Invincible, when it’s at its most fun. Oblivion Song follows an agent, Nathan Cole, who goes into another dimension, Oblivion, to find people who have been left behind. With limited resources and equipment coupled with government abandonment, Nathan’s mission to save those left behind in Oblivion is even more challenging. A decade ago 300,000 citizens of Philadelphia were suddenly lost in Oblivion. The government made every attempt to recover them but after many years they gave up. Nathan Cole won’t. He makes daily trips, risking his life to try and rescue those lost, alone and afraid, living in the apocalyptic hellscape of Oblivion. But maybe… Nathan is looking for something else? Why can’t he resist the siren call of the Oblivion Song?

Oblivion Song is co-created by Kirkman (writer) and Lorenzo De Felici (artist). Other credits include Annalisa Leoni (colorist); Rus Wooton (letterer) and Sean Mackiewicz (editor), and is published by Image Comics for Skybound Entertainment. The first issue will be released on March 7 and will be an ongoing series.
