    CT – Sailor Twain Signing

    Comments Off

    Mark Siegel appears at Bank Square Books on Wednesday October 10, 2012 from noon till 1:30pm.

    Press Release:

    Please join us for an author luncheon at Bank Square Books with author Mark Siegel and his literary fantasy “SAILOR TWAIN”.

    One hundred years ago. On the foggy Hudson River, a riverboat captain rescues an injured mermaid from the waters of the busiest port in the United States. A wildly popular–and notoriously reclusive–author makes a public debut. A French nobleman seeks a remedy for a curse. As three lives twine together and race to an unexpected collision, the mystery of the Mermaid of the Hudson deepens. A mysterious and beguiling love story with elements of Poe, Twain, Hemingway, and Greek mythology, drawn in moody black-and-white charcoal, Sailor Twain is a study in romance, atmosphere, and suspense. Pete Hamill calls it “This extraordinary work of fiction pushes the graphic novel well beyond its previous limits.”

    CT – Dinotopia Signing

    James Gurney, author and illustrator of Dinotopia, appears at the Lyman Allyn Art Museum for a presentation and book signing on Saturday October 13th, 2012 at 2:00pm.

    Press Release:

    Lyman Allyn Art Museum announces a new exhibition DINOTOPIA: Art, Science, and Imagination opening September 22, 2012 and on view through February 2, 2013.

    Dinosaur fans get ready! DINOTOPIA: Art, Science, and Imagination showcases the original artwork of James Gurney. Gurney is the author and illustrator of Dinotopia, an illustrated book series that tells the story of an island where humans and sentient dinosaurs live together in harmony. Dinotopia appeals to both adults and children and was the inspiration for the 2002 television miniseries.

    On view from September 22, 2012 through February 2, 2013, the exhibition brings together paintings from Gurney’s well-loved books A Land Apart From Time, The World Beneath, Journey to Chandara, and First Flight, along with sketches and maquettes from Gurney’s studio. Dinosaur specimens from the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History, including a Deinonychus skull and a Tyrannosaurus tooth, will complement the paintings and illuminate the science behind Gurney’s art. Children, families, steampunk enthusiasts, and dinosaur fans of all ages will agree that this exhibition should not be missed!

    The Lyman Allyn Art Museum’s mission is to respond and appeal to the regional community. In that spirit, the museum has planned an exciting schedule of programs to accompany this exhibition.

    Comic-Con: A Fan’s Hope Tour Already Cancelled

    Fan's Hope Poster

    Well, that didn’t take long. Just days after announcing 10 tour dates (and little details) about a series of mini-cons in support of the release “Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope,” the documentary about the San Diego Comic Con directed by Morgan Spurlock, word comes via The Beat that the whole tour has been cancelled  due to the typical “circumstances” beyond their control. They also say that Director Morgan Spurlock will be making in-person appearances at many of the theaters.

     

    UPDATED: Comic-Con: A Fan’s Hope Tour Promises “The San Diego Experience in Your Home Town”

    Comic Con Tour

    UPDATE: The tour has been cancelled.

    While details are somewhat scarce, a “live pop-culture movie and tour” is being launched in support of “Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope,” the documentary about the San Diego Comic Con directed by Morgan Spurlock and produced by the likes of Joss Whedon, Stan Lee, and Harry Knowles. Whether any of them will actually be in attendance at these events remains to be seen, but the promotional material promises “live superstar panels, exclusive footage from upcoming blockbusters, previews of the coolest new toys and collectibles” and “the incredible goodie bag.”

    Ten tour dates have been announced so far with more to come:

    • Thu Apr 5 – Atlanta, GA – Cobb Energy PAC
    • Fri Apr 6 – Orlando, FL – UCF Arena
    • Sat Apr 7 – Miami Beach, FL – Fillmore Miami
    • Thu Apr 12 – Rochester, NY – Dome Arena
