UK – Ordinary Signing

OrdinaryRob Williams, Ben Oliver, and Simon Gurr appears for a signing of ORDINARY, the graphic novel, and AUTHORITY, HUMAN ON THE INSIDE at the Forbidden Planet Bristol Megastore on Saturday 1st November from 1 – 2pm.

For ORDINARY, Imagine a world where everyone has superpowers. That is, except you. You are the same old turgid, miserable, lonely loser, you’ve always been. What’s needed is a return to normality, to devolve back from Superhuman to just human – and there’s only one man for the job: down-at-heel, divorced New York plumber, Michael Fisher.

The AUTHORITY, Earth’s last of defence, have performed God-like acts in their defence of the planet, whether defeating ancient gods or fending off inter-dimensional invasion forces. But these brave acts haven’t always endeared them to many in power, particularly in the United States. The President, tired of being embarrassed by what he views as a bunch of costumed freaks, sets a plan in motion that could very well destroy the Authority from the inside — a plan so cunning and unexpected, it’ll shake the Authority to their very core.

SF – Supergods Signing

 

Grant Morrison signs on Saturday, August 6th, 2011 from 2:00PM – 5:00PM!

Press Release:

In celebration of Grant’s upcoming SUPERGODS: What Masked Vigilantes, Miraculous Mutants, and a Sun God from Smallville Can Teach Us About Being Human non-fiction hardcover from Spiegel & Grau, the man himself and we here at the Isotope will rocking San Francisco’s collective worlds with an event of truly mythological proportions!

SUPERGODS explores the history of fictionalized super-powered beings from their inception at the dawn of the 20th century to today, examining the quite profound affect these icons have had on worldwide cultural movements, the political climates that drove their emergence and evolution, what these spiritual touchstones mean for the modern age, and where (with their help) humanity goes from here. From the four ages of superheroic zeitgest and beyond, Grant anatomizes superhero history all the while synthesizing a memoir of his own personal journey, one of a writer’s dedication to this epic, near-century-long narrative and of a dimensional pioneer who found a way to penetrate the superworld… and to come back with its stories.

So come, join us in welcoming Grant Morrison back to San Francisco in the highest of high style! We are truly honored to get to host him here at the Isotope once again.

As always, we want as many of you to get to know Grant as well as we do, so we’re hosting a daytime signing event for the under 21 crowd, and also an epic celebration that night for the folks who like our bring-your-ID after dark events. And yes, for that over 21 crowd, we will be rocking your worlds with another completely new ultra-limited edition commemorative glass (check out the Grant Morrison Pint Glass we made with the help of Cameron Stewart from our event in 2006)… take a peek and revel in the glory of the Grant Morrison SUPERGODS Commemorative Lowball with best-of-both-worlds artwork by Sonia Harris and Cameron Stewart! As per Grant’s publisher’s request, these events are for folks who purchase a copy of SUPERGODS, which posed a unique challenge for us to accommodate both our styles of events… and also the crowds that will no doubt be wanting to join us! With that in mind, we’re thrilled with the solution we’ve devised, simply bundling a copy of SUPERGODS with every pass and keeping that price at exactly the cost of the awesome items you get to take home with you. Nice!

Grant Morrison discusses and signs Supergods on July 29, 2011 at 7:00 pm!

Press Release:

For Grant Morrison, arguably the greatest of contemporary chroniclers of the “superworld,” superheroes are powerful archetypes whose ongoing, decades-spanning story arcs reflect and predict the course of human existence: Through them we tell the story of ourselves, our troubled history, and our starry aspirations. In this exhilarating work of a lifetime, Morrison draws on art, science, mythology, and his own astonishing journeys through this shadow universe to provide the first true history of the superhero: why they matter, why they will always be with us, and what they tell us about who we are . . . and what we may yet become.
