CA – Hop-Con 3.0

hopcon3Press Release:

Our annual celebration of nth-degree beer geekery is back for a third round. Join us for a release party large enough to match this year’s Stone Farking Wheaton w00tstout. Hop-Con isn’t about awkward handshakes, high-fives, selfies and autographs – just general and rampant merriment and geeky celebration full of great food and awesome craft beer. As always, we have surprises planned. This year, we’ve added 45% more space to the festival. Whatever could we do with that? Hmmmm…you’ll have to wait and see.

We’re taking the giant plot behind building 12 (aka the garden bar) and turning it into the HOP-CADE! Our dream of creating an outdoor arcade and beer garden from last year has been realized.

We’ll have:
* Only IPAs on tap
* Our oversized lawn games (Jenga, Connect Four, etc)
* Two pinball machines (The Twilight Zone and Theatre of Magic)
* Donkey Kong
* Ms. Pac-Man
* A Skee-ball machine

Not enough? How about an arcade game with a 25-foot screen driven from a used beer barrel converted into a vintage arcade console? This last feat will be created by our friend Hunter Bond, Troll Slayer and resident Pinball Mechanic at J!NX, with custom metal routing by San Diego’s reproHAUS.

UK – Ring of Roses Signing

ring of rosesDAS PETROU and JOHN WATKISS will be signing RING OF ROSES at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Wednesday 29th July from 6:00 – 7:00 PM.


This is London, 1991. Lawyer Samuel Waterhouse investigates a ghoulish murder mystery set in alternate English history that’s all religious mania, secret societies and the plague. Imagine an England under religious rule – a rule so iron-fisted that science and technology has been set back decades…

Das has worked in both film and advertising as a conceptual artist and writer for clients as varied as Walt Disney, Saatchi & Saatchi, Universal Pictures, BBH, and the BBC. He also worked at Neal Adams’ Continuity Associates in New York, and wrote a JAMES BOND series for Dark Horse, as well as being an art director at Cartoon Network. When writing RING OF ROSES he was working on a feature for Steven Spielberg, and developing the TV series, TALES OF BEATRIX POTTER. He is currently completing his first novel, a supernatural thriller called WINTER OF THE SUCCUBUS.

John is a respected fine art painter, comic book artist, and visual development artist in film. After working on Ring of Roses, he moved to LA to develop TARZAN and ATLANTIS for Walt Disney. He has also worked for world-famous companies, including Saatchi & Saatchi, Ridley Scott Associates, Francis Ford Coppola, Dreamworks, Twentieth Century Fox and Disney. John drew SANDMAN MYSTERY THEATRE, BATMAN, and DEADMAN for Vertigo. He is now living in the UK, and working on SURGEON X, a project he is developing as both a comic book and TV series for Sony Pictures.

CA – Hollywood Babble-On LIVE


Ralph Garman & Kevin Smith appear at the Hollywood Improv on Saturday, June 27, 2015 at 10:00 PM for a live recording of their podcast HOLLYWOOD BABBLE ON!

Get tickets here…

Kevin Smith and Ralph Garman take a twisted look at showbiz news and bite the Hollywood hand that feeds them. Sometimes, they feel bad and give Hollywood a tetanus shot and some Neosporin, but, even then, they usually just turn around and bite Hollywood’s other hand. They can’t help it. It’s their nature. It’s like that “scorpion and frog” story. But, deep down, they’re just two nice East Coast boys… who happen to have a heavy dependence on drugs and alcohol, respectively.

Who is Neal Adams? Neal Adams is a towering figure in the world of comic book creation and art. Neal has had legendary ‘runs’ on Batman, X-Men, Green Lantern/Green Arrow, and Deadman. Adams rescued Batman from the campy nostalgia of the television show, and re-fitted him in his present incarnation as an “Avenger of the Night.” When people say ‘modern Batman,’ they mean Neal Adams’ Batman. His run on Batman led directly to the new, more realistic incarnation in “Batman Returns” movie, which featured the character he created, Ra’s Al Ghul. Neal just did an 8 page story in Batman Black & White #1. Don’t miss out on picking one up at the store and having Neal sign it.

Neal is currently working on a Superman Series for DC Comics.
