Comments Off on CA – Dark Country Signing
Tom Jane signs at Secret Headquarters on Friday October 12, 2012 at 7:00 pm.
Please join us on Friday, October 12 to celebrate the release of Dark Country, the graphic novel based on the Thomas Jane film.
In 2007, actor/filmmaker Thomas Jane went off to New Mexico to film his noir/suspense film, Dark Country, a twisted, psycho-noir about a couple forced to deal with a dead body en route from Vegas. The result was a mind bending, idiosyncratic, EC Comic-style ride into the noirish landscape of damnation. In an effort to create a new experience, Jane had the artist adapt the original short story by Tab Murphy that inspired the film. Thomas Ott’s adaptation is presented in his signature ‘silent’ format, with Tab Murphy’s original short story immediately following the sequential art. Also included is a 40 page bonus section packed with pre-visualization art, production photography, and marketing art and design.
So join us next Friday, have a drink, grab a book, and meet Mr. Jane!
