Peter Facinelli and Rob Defranco sign at Midtown Comics on Wednesday November 20th at 7:30pm!
Midtown Comics in New York City is excited to welcome actor Peter Facinelli along with his producing partner Rob Defranco for a special book signing of their new comic book, Protocol: Orphans #1 from BOOM! Studios, on Wednesday, November 20th, at 7:30pm at the Midtown Comics Downtown location. Purchase of Protocol: Orphans #1 is required to attend the signing and one additional personal item may be signed.
Actor Peter Facinelli (Twilight Saga, Nurse Jackie) and producing partner Rob DeFranco (A7sle Films) are the creators of Protocol: Orphans. Written by Michael Alan Nelson (Day Men, Supergirl) and drawn by Mariano Navarro, Protocol: Orphans is an action-packed espionage series with a compelling cast of young characters struggling with their transition into adulthood. Adopted by the government. Trained as deadly spies. Abandoned by everybody but each other. Protocol: Orphans is a tense thriller perfect for fans of fun spy fiction like TV’s Alias or Mission: Impossible.
“I love a good espionage story,” says BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “Protocol: Orphans delivers; it’s a smart, stylish, and fast-paced thriller. If you miss shows like Alias, you’re in for a treat.”
