vlpJEFFREY BROWN signs VADER’S LITTLE PRINCESS and DARTH VADER AND SON at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Friday 29th November from 6 – 7pm.

In this irresistibly funny follow-up to the breakout bestseller Darth Vader and Son, Vader, Sith Lord and leader of the Galactic Empire, now faces the trials, joys and mood swings of raising his rebellious teenage daughter: Princess Leia. Smart and sweetly funny illustrations by artist Jeffrey Brown give classic Star Wars moments a twist by bringing these two galactic adversaries together under one roof. From teaching Leia how to fly a TIE fighter, to regulating the time she spends talking with friends via R2-D2’s hologram, to making sure Leia doesn’t leave the house wearing only the metal bra and a slinky skirt from Return of the Jedi, Vader’s parenting skills are put hilariously to the test.

After growing up in Michigan, Jeffrey Brown moved to Chicago to pursue an MFA at the School of the Art Institute. His first book, Clumsy, grabbed the attention from both cartoonists and comics fans alike. He has a host of titles to his name, ranging from humour to autobiography, and his work has appeared in a host of anthologies, as well as mainstream books like The Simpson’s Treehouse of Horror and Marvel’s Strange Tales. His original artwork has been exhibited in New York, Paris, and Chicago. He lives in Chicago with his wife and son.

Press Release:

Cartoonist Jeffrey Brown returns to Star Clipper on Saturday, August 31 from 11 AM to 2:30 PM (his first time back to the store since 2007) to promote his newest book STAR WARS JEDI ACADEMY. This will be Jeffrey Brown’s first major U.S. signing promoting his highly-anticipated new Star Wars book.

Jeffrey Brown’s JEDI ACADEMY explores what middle school is like in a galaxy far, far away. Roan is the newest recruit to the mysterious Jedi Academy. Under the guidance of Master Yoda, Roan learns to make a baking soda volcano, fence with a lightsaber, slow dance with a girl, and lift boulders with the Force. Yoda’s new protégée soon learns he possesses more strength and potential than he could have ever dreamed of, but will Roan learn to use his talents for the right reasons? Jeffrey Brown’s quirky, coming-of-age story is the perfect introduction for young adult readers into the expansive Star Wars universe.

Jeffrey Brown will also be the guest-of-honor for Star Clipper Day 2013, which serves as the stores 25th birthday party. Come out for a full-day celebration and the capstone to Star Clipper’s Summer-Long Comics University Program. Click on the link for a full list of events on Star Clipper Day.

WA – Darth Vader & Son Signing

Jeffrey Brown signs at the Fantagraphics Bookstore on Saturday June 2nd from 6-8pm!

Press Release:

Don’t miss a special appearance by Jeffrey Brown this Saturday, June 2 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM at Fantagraphics Bookstore. Brown will be in town as a guest of the Seattle International Film Festival, which is screening the movie he co-wrote, Save the Date, on Thursday and Friday evenings.

Jeffrey Brown was one of the pioneers of the new wave of graphic memoirs with his revealing relationship comix and idiosyncratic rendering style. On Saturday, he’ll sign copies of his sensational new book, Darth Vader and Son, which re-imagines Dark Lord Vader in a loving relationship with young son Skywalker. At once poignant and preposterous, this hard-to-find book appeals to all readers – and a personalized copy would make the perfect Father’s Day gift coming up on June 17.

Brown will discuss his work in the context of family life and his recent foray into film with Janice Headley prior to a book signing and informal reception. This event also marks the unveiling of the bookstore’s entry to Hazardfactory’s Power Tool Races, held the following Saturday, June 9 at the colorful Georgetown Carnival – which also features special guest Joe Sacco!

HeroesCon is exactly one month away and guests are still being announced. This isn’t even the last guest list update before the show! We’re bursting at the seams! Get your tickets today! See the full guest list on the website!

We are happy to welcome Neal Adams back to HeroesCon this June 22-24! Thanks to everyone who attended last year and met Neal on his first visit to HeroesCon; you must have made a great impression! Neal is a legend in the comic book industry as much for his artwork as he is for crusading for the rights of fellow creators and striking out on his own when such a thing was unheard of. Neal’s career spans decades, from classic runs on characters like X-Men, Green Arrow, Green Lantern, and Batman to his current Batman: Odyssey. Be on the lookout for The First X-Men coming soon from Neal and writer (and fellow HeroesCon 2012 guest) Christos Gage! One of Jared Moraitis’ BeastWreck Shirts & Stuff was recently featured on an episode of NBC’s Community. Jared makes great shirts and if you buy two shirts at HeroesCon this year one of them should say BeastWreck on it! The other one will of course say HeroesCon or Indie Island.

Michel Fiffe is the creator of the comic series, Zegas, which he began publishing in 2011 as Copra Press. On top of writing and drawing Zegas, Fiffe has immersed himself in various comics projects such as editing the indie anthology Twisted Savage Dragon Funnies and conducting in-depth creator interviews for several institutions including The Comics Journal.

When he’s not working in animation, Dan Duncan is making comics. You’ve seen his art on the latest incarnation of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and on the beautifully painted covers of Xenoholics. Catch this guy before he and his crew are super famous and don’t have time for you. Ah, he’d make time anyway, Dan is a super nice guy.

Artist Tom Lyle is also returning to HeroesCon next month. Tom’s illustrated numerous books like Spider-man, Robin, Punisher and Batman. He’s also an instructor at Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), who he’ll be setting up with again this year.

Jeffrey Brown had a recent hit with Darth Vader and Son, and is well known for other comics like The Incredible Change-Bots, Little Things, Clumsy, Unlikely and many more.

Tom Bancroft is a veteran artist in animation, storyboards and comics. He’s done design work for lots of big Disney films like Aladdin, Lion King and Mulan, and illustrated books like Opposite Forces and the art instruction book Creating Characters With Personality.

June Brigman and Roy Richardson are the married creators behind the past fifteen years of Brenda Starr. June is also known for her work on titles like Power Pack, Supergirl and an adaptation of the novel Black Beauty with Roy. Dennis Calero has been a go-to artist for many companies over the years. In addition to work on popular properties like 28 Days Later: The Aftermath, Calero’s also illustrated books like X-men: Noir, X-factor and Cowboys & Aliens. Michael Dolce is a comics writer who has worked on books like Grimm Fairy Tales, Descendant and Sire.

Zealand “Steve” Jones has been a character designer on animated shows such as Batman: Brave and The Bold, Justice League Unlimited, Batman Beyond, Superman, and the New Adventures of Batman. He also worked on Teen Titans, Legion of Superheroes, JL: The New Frontier DTV, JL: Crisis on 2 Earths DTV, Men In Black and G I Joe: Renegades. Currently , he is working on the new CG TMNT cartoon at Nickelodeon Studios. His pals Dan Panosianand Tim Townsend told him HeroesCon was a great show so he decided to make his first trip to the Queen City to check it out!

Drew Moss is currently drawing a story for Outlaw Territory Volume 3. He has also worked on Zombies VS Robots and The Baku.

Ethan Van Sciver has been a mainstay at DC for years now. He’s illustrated titles like Green Lantern, Green Lantern: Rebirth, Flash: Rebirth and most recently the new 52 title Fury of Firestorm.

David Antoine Williams made quite an impression last year at his first ever appearance at HeroesCon! See the image below for one of the reasons why! David has been keeping busy with covers for G.I. Joe, Cobra and tons of other stuff since we saw him last. Don’t miss this chance to meet and chat with the one and only “Brohawk”!
