NYC – Preacher Season 3 Q&A

Actors Dominic Cooper, Ruth Negga, Joseph Gilgun, and producer Sam Catlin appear at BUILD Studio on Wednesday, June 20, 2018 at 2:00 PM to speak about the new season of AMC’s PREACHER!

Based on the popular cult comic book franchise of the same name, “Preacher” is an absurdly twisted and action-packed thrill ride. When Jesse Custer (Cooper), a small-town preacher with a criminal past, realizes God is absent from Heaven, Jesse sets out to find Him. Along for the ride are Tulip (Negga), Jesse’s volatile true love, and Cassidy (Gilgun), a 119-year-old Irish vampire, who is Jesse’s best mate. The gang ends up in New Orleans, where they must dodge local gangsters, dangerous secret agents in white suits, and the Saint of Killers, an unstoppable murderous cowboy from Hell.

ON – Amazing Spider-Man #800 Signing

Press Release:

The Beguiling is thrilled to announce a spectacular, sensational, frankly amazing signing as we welcome powerhouse comics couple STUART & KATHRYN IMMONEN to the store on Wednesday, May 30 starting at 5:00 PM! Their first public appearance/signing in three years is to celebrate the release of THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #800 from Marvel Comics!

Stuart & Kathryn’s credits almost don’t need to be listed—besides THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, Stuart has been the artist on such books as STAR WARS, NEXTWAVE, EMPRESS, and FEAR ITSELF; Kathryn has been the writer on such great titles as RUNAWAYS, SIF: JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY, AGENT CARTER and PATSY WALKER: HELLCAT. If that weren’t enough, together the Immonens have also created the books RUSSIAN OLIVE TO RED KING, MOVING PICTURES and NEVER AS BAD AS YOU THINK. Their work crosses genres and styles and demonstrates that regardless of the format, they are masterful creators in any form of comics.

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #800 is not only a milestone comics event but also marks the end of Stuart’s run on the title, so it’s the perfect occasion to welcome the Immonens at our new location. For this event The Beguiling will also be donating $5 from the sale of each copy of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #800 to the Immonens’ chosen charity, Trails Youth Initiative! Now THAT is Amazing!

This comic has a cover price of $9.99 US, or roughly $13 CDN, but pre-ordered copies will be sold at $10 CDN. On the day-of, copies of the regular ASM #800 cover will be priced at CAD$12.

Due to the fact that the current run of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN has been selling out on day of release, and the sheer number of special variant covers for this issue, we will be taking pre-orders to help make sure you get the covers you want. While we will be taking pre-orders right up to the event, if you are looking for one of the variant covers please visit our website/see below for details on how to order.
Additional issues of Amazing Spider-Man will be available the day of release, but cannot be pre-ordered.

Stuart and Kathryn will both be on hand to sign copies of their work, with in-store purchase. Head sketches will be available with the day-of purchase of TPB and HC books as well as on sketch covers of Amazing Spider-Man #800. Please note: Stuart will not be doing convention or commission-level sketches, NO EXCEPTIONS.

Then he meets the enchanting Natal, an impassioned journalist and free spirit—who lives with the gangster that rules much of Rio.

Years ago Dino Stamatopoulos wrote a musical comedy (or more appropriately a Light Tragedy with Music) about a small family surviving through a cold winter. Think Sam Shepard meets Moral Orel. Although this play was only performed once, in Chicago, it’s being brought back in the form of a musical graphic novel. However, for San Francisco Sketchfest, for the first time since the original staging, Dino and guests will perform scenes and music from TRENT: a light tragedy with music.

ABOUT SF SKETCHFEST

SF Sketchfest was founded in 2001 by David Owen, Cole Stratton and Janet Varney as a way to showcase the talents of six Bay Area sketch comedy groups: The Fresh Robots, Kasper Hauser, The Meehan Brothers, Please Leave the Bronx, Totally False People and White Noise Radio Theatre. The festival debuted in January of 2002 at the Shelton Theatre in downtown San Francisco and has grown rapidly into a nationally recognized comedy festival that mixes national headliners, local favorites and the best up-and-coming groups from throughout North America for a month of sketch, improv, stand-up and alternative comedy. A favorite with audiences, critics, and performers alike, the festival has grown substantially to become a highly anticipated artistic showcase that consistently delivers top quality comedic performances, tributes and panel discussions. To learn about past participants, visit the Past Festivals page (coming soon).
Audiences have overwhelmingly responded to SF Sketchfest’s diverse programming which has featured performers from every major North American television comedy smash of the last 25 years including Saturday Night Live, The Kids in the Hall, Mr. Show, Arrested Development, VEEP, The Upright Citizens Brigade, The State, Mystery Science Theatre 3000, Strangers With Candy, Key & Peele, The Simpsons, The Daily Show and more. SF Sketchfest offers its audiences the rare opportunity to see their favorite performers in intimate live performances and discussions.
