Bryan Lee O’Malley appears at Giant Robot’s Game Night 2 on Saturday, August 21, 2010 from 5:00 – 10:00 p.m.
Giant Robot 2
2062 Sawtelle Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90025
In conjunction with the Attract Mode videogame culture shop, Giant Robot is proud to host Game Night, a new event that takes place at GR2 every two months. Each evening will feature a different developer and its games in a relaxed, community-building setting.
For Game Night 2, Giant Robot is pleased to present artist Bryan Lee O’Malley, who will be celebrating the sixth and final installment of his Scott Pilgrim comic-book saga (adapted into a movie directed by Edgar Wright for Universal) and playing the brand new Scott Pilgrim video game (published by Ubisoft with art direction by Paul Robertson and music by Anamanaguchi).
O’Malley will sign volumes of Scott Pilgrim from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m.
Games will be played from 7:00 – 10:00 p.m.
Bryan Lee O’Malley is also featured as the cover artist of the July-August issue of Giant Robot magazine. Giant Robot was born as a Los Angeles-based publication about Asian, Asian-American, and new hybrid culture in 1994, but has evolved into a full-service pop culture provider with shops and galleries in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York City, as well as an online equivalent.
Game Night 2 will take place on August 21 from 5:00 – 10:00 p.m.
