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.

MO – MIND MGMT Signing

mgmt

Artist and writer Matt Kindt (Pistolwhip, Super Spy, 3 Story, Revolver, Frankenstein: Agent of Shade) will be at Star Clipper from noon to 2 pm on Wednesday, April 3 to sign copies of his MIND MGMT trade paperback!

RSVP on Facebook!

From ifanboy: “20th Century Fox has secured the film rights to Mind MGMT, the ESPionage romp from cartoonist Matt Kindt and Dark Horse. While the adaptation is not yet linked to a writer or director, Ridley Scott (Blade Runner, Prometheus) will produce the feature under his Scott Free logo along with Dark Horse’s own Mike Richardson and Keith Goldberg.

Mind MGMT tells the story of Henry Lime and Meru, a spy and true crime writer respectively, caught up in the absurd, mysterious, often horrific world of government sanctioned psionic warfare and alphabet soup intrigue. The comic itself is ongoing, but there’s already plenty of fodder for great cinema, including planes full (and then not) of missing memories, creepy dolphins and no shortage of conspiracy. It could well be Men Who Stare at Goats, but great.

We’re keeping our eyes on this one.”

MO – The Law of Superheroes Signing

Press Release:

Have you ever asked yourself, “Does Superman violate privacy laws when he uses X-ray vision?” “Does the second Amendment protect Iron Man’s suit?” “Is the Joker really legally insane?” Well, these are the first three questions that lawyers James Daily and Ryan Davidson ask in their new book The Law of Superheroes. Based on the successful blog Law and The Multiverse, The Law of Superheroes is a fun and in-depth examination of the hypothetical legal implications your favorite comic book characters might face in the real world.

Star Clipper is excited to host co-author James Daily, J.D. on Saturday, November 3 from 12 – 3 p.m. to sign copies of The Law of Superheroes and moderate a Q & A about Law and The Multiverse! Yes, you can finally get answers to the questions you never dared to ask, like “Is Spider-Man’s webbing misused as unlawful detainment?” or “How enforceable is a restraining order against a psychic like Emma Frost?”

Come dressed in costume and ask for legal counsel* that might affect the character you are portraying! James Daily, lawyer to the superheroic, will answer your question on the spot.

Restraining order keeping you from coming out? Submit your fantasy legal question to Star Clipper’s Facebook or Twitter page and we’ll post James Daily’s answer.

*HYPOTHETICAL! NOT REAL!
