NY – Shanghai Red #1 Signing

Artist Joshua Hixson (The Black Woods) appears at Fourth World Comics on Saturday, June 23, 2018 Wednesday, June 20th from 5:00 – 8:00 PM to sign the first issue of SHANGHAI RED from Image Comics!

Red is one of hundreds shanghaied out of Portland in the late 1800s. Drugged, kidnapped, and sold to a ship’s captain, she wakes up on a boat headed out to sea for years, unable to escape or reveal who she truly is. Now, she’s on her way back, in a boat covered in blood, to find her family—and to track down the men responsible for stealing her life out from under her.

NY – Mick Foley: 20 Years of Hell

Mick Foley appears at Laugh It Up on Friday, June 15th at 8:00 PM.

Climb on board the “TWENTY YEARS OF HELL” tour for a thrill ride TWENTY YEARS in the making – as Mick Foley, professional wrestling’s hardcore legend, takes audiences along for an in-depth look at the most famous match of his hall-of-fame career – and perhaps, the most talked about match in sports-entertainment history.

With his trademark blend of wit and wisdom, wildness and warmth that shot two of his memoirs to the top of The New York Times best-seller list, Foley will use every tool in his arsenal – dozens of classic promos, hundreds of hours onstage, thousands of matches, and almost a MILLION published words – to weave a spell-binding web of stories, designed to take fans along on a journey back to June 28, 1998 – the night of the infamous “Hell in a Cell” match. It was the night that Foley somehow survived two spine rattling falls off of, and through the ominous Cell structure, shrugged off a stint of unconsciousness, and finished the match with a front tooth lodged in his nose. Finding humor in the most unlikely of places, “TWENTY YEARS OF HELL” brings the laughs, but is much more than just a comedic one-man show. He will make you feel like you are there…RIGHT THERE – in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, watching history write itself. By equal turns laugh out loud funny, stunningly surreal and heart wrenchingly real, “TWENTY YEARS OF HELL” is a once in a lifetime chance to hear wrestling’s finest story-teller talking about the night he walked down an aisle a wrestler, and walked away a legend.

Each show begins with Mick’s recollections of wrestling in the town he is performing in and will conclude with a candid 30-45 minute Q&A where all subjects are fair game.

VIP Ticket Includes: Meet and greet with photo op and autograph.

RSVP on Facebook!

NYC – Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Q&A

Join actor Daniella Pineda (The Detour, The Originals) as she talks about the film, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom at BUILD Studio on Friday, June 15, 2018 at 11:00 AM.

It’s been three years since theme park and luxury resort Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment. Isla Nublar now sits abandoned by humans while the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungles. When the island’s dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event. Arriving on the unstable island as lava begins raining down, their expedition uncovers a conspiracy that could return our entire planet to a perilous order not seen since prehistoric times. With all of the wonder, adventure and thrills synonymous with one of the most popular and successful series in cinema history, this all-new motion-picture event sees the return of favorite characters and dinosaurs—along with new breeds more awe-inspiring and terrifying than ever before.
