CA – Omega 1 Signing

01

Mark Edward Lewis & Alina Andrei sign at The Comic Bug on Wednesday May 15th.

RSVP on Facebook!

Press Release:

“Omega One” takes place in the future when the lines of electronic communications are compromised by groups of terrorist hackers that have brought down not only large companies but governments from around the world; thus began the “Hacker Wars”.

Out of the hacker wars grew courier services that rely on human couriers that can hold vast amounts of data and information. These couriers have become the futuristic version of the pony express encountering danger at every turn.

Among the many courier services has emerged “Alpha Courier Alliance” one of the elite companies known for their ability to get information through no matter the risk; along with their top agent “Omega One”.

But who is Omega One, that’s a question even she is asking herself, and why are clients and government agencies trying to kill her?

Meet the creators, Mark Edward Lewis & Alina Andrei at either of our TWO pulse pounding signing sessions. Matinee signing from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and the evening signing from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. Bring a camera! Alina is known to show up in costume!

CA – Raiders! Screening

Press Release:

In 1981, in Ocean Springs, Mississippi, ten-year-old Chris Strompolos and eleven-year-old Eric Zala met on a school bus. They discovered they shared a passion for comic books and the film Raiders of the Lost Ark, and a friendship was born. They decided to re-make Raiders—every scene, every shot, every stunt—even though they had no camera, no money, and no clue how to make a movie. But what they did have was a vision, sheer will, limitless imagination, and each other.

Incredibly, they realized their dream,  though it took them a staggering seven years to complete their movie. By then, they had grown up – and almost burned down the family home, nearly killed Eric, and stopped speaking to each other. Twenty-nine years later, today Raiders of the Lost Ark: The Adaptation has an obsessive and devoted following of millions and is considered the best and most successful fan film ever created.

Now, this new book retraces the steps of the guys’ remarkable journey from childhood play to worldwide celebrity in RAIDERS!:The Story of the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made by Alan Eisenstock with Eric Zala and Chris Strompolos (Thomas Dunne Books/St. Martin’s Press: November 13, 2012). $25.99   On Saturday, December 1st, we’ll be screening the movie at THE COMIC BUG to be followed by a Q & A with Chris Strompolos, Eric Zala and author Alan Eisenstock. Seating will be limited! Purchase the book early to guarantee a spot!   Check out the fun book trailer!
