Event: Brom signs The Child Thief
Time: Sunday, September 13, 2009 2:00 p.m.
Location: Mysterious Galaxy
Artist and author Brom turns his keyboard and paintbrush to a reimagining of J.M. Barrie’s famous boy who would never grow up, Peter Pan, in The Child Thief. Brom explores the darkest aspects of a land where children who grow up are winnowed and replaced, and what forces led Peter to lead an army of the misfit, the abused, and the unwanted in a deadly and dangerous Avalon. In addition to original and book-related art, Brom has also worked on video games, movies, and wrote and illustrated two children’s novellas. Whether you were a fortunate Comic-Con attendee who received a sneak peek at The Child Thief, or an admirer of Brom’s other works, please join us on Sunday, September 13, at 2:00 PM.
