SF – Darth Vader & Son Signing

Jeffrey Brown signs at Isotope Lounge on Wednesday, May 16th 2012 from 4pm – 7pm.

Press Release:

One of the most talked about comics and creators of the year is coming to the Isotope!

Indie comics god Jeffrey Brown, the man behind some of our most beloved comics including CAT GETTING OUT OF A BAG, CLUMSY, UNLIKELY, and INCREDIBLE CHANGE-BOTS, has a really wonderful new book coming out that you won’t want to miss… DARTH VADER AND SON, and the Isotope and our friends at Chronicle Books have teamed up to bring you Jeffrey’s first 2012 San Francisco public appearance.

DARTH VADER AND SON takes place in an alternative Star Wars universe filled with hilarious and charming scenes from Luke Skywalker’s childhood if Darth Vader had been a good dad. One look and you’ll be just as in love with this as we all are!

While we await Mister Brown’s imminent arrival with stacks of what will surely be one of our favorite graphic novels of the year, go check out this cinematic trailer for the book, catch a preview over at Apartment Therapy, sit in on a Skype interview with Jeffrey, check out the Drawing Between the Lines Jeffrey Brown documentary which had it’s world premiere screening at the Isotope, and go have some puzzle-solving and finger-puppet making fun with the Darth Vader And Son Activity Book.

We’ll also be giving out free DARTH VADER AND SON pinback buttons during our event too! How cool is that?!

Featuring BATWOMAN @ Isotope
w/ JH Williams III & W. Haden Blackman
Saturday, December 3rd 2011

DC Comics celebrates the incredible creativity behind The New 52 with superstars, artwork and events at a store near you with The New 52 Art Tour!

In honor of this historical event the Isotope and DC Comics proudly present JH Williams III and W. Haden Blackman for a BATWOMAN signing, celebration, and original art installation.  Meet the creators behind this gorgeous and critically acclaimed new series for a duo of once-in-a-lifetime events. Take an uncommon look at The New 52 Art Tour Portfolio, including six 11×17 sets of artwork (from script to inks to the final full-color production pages), including a three piece BATWOMAN collection. And on display for the entire month of December in the Isotope’s legendary original art gallery will be every page of JH Williams III’s hand-drawn artwork for BATWOMAN issue #3. These pages will only be displayed together for the public this one time, and nowhere else on the planet.

And for those of you who want to add some original BATWOMAN, PROMETHEA, DESOLATION JONES, SEVEN SOLDIERS or BATMAN artwork to your collections, JH Williams III will have portfolios available all day long, jam packed with some of the most gorgeous original art pages you will ever see. As always, we’re happy to do our part to help you skip scummy art dealers and overpriced galleries and to buy directly from the industry’s best artists. All proceeds go to Mister Williams.

In an effort to make this as personal of an experience for everybody (and also we’ve promised Jim and Haden we wouldn’t kill them!) we do ask that you bring no more than 5 items to get signed, please.
