SIGNING: I WAS THE CAT
With IWTC artist Benjamin Dewey! Paul & Ben will be signing the special SDCC advance edition of their new graphic novel, I Was The Cat (general release August 6, 2014). With limited supplies of sweet-ass giveaway material!
Allison Breaking is a talented journalist with her own blog and a lot of bills to pay, so when she receives an offer from a mysterious stranger named Burma to write his memoirs, it’s an offer she can’t refuse, not even with all the red flags popping up. But Burma is quite literally unlike any man Allison’s ever known – because he’s a cat. And this cat has stories to tell about how he (over the course of a few lifetimes) has shaped the world – and another, darker story that Allison must risk all to uncover… a story of what this particular cat has been doing with the LAST of his nine lives.
6:00 pm – 7:00 pm, Room 9 (PAUL):
A UNIVERSE OF TERROR DRAWN TO ONE PANEL: ALIENS, PREDATOR, PROMETHEUS, & BEYOND
Nearly 30 years ago, Dark Horse rewrote the rules of licensed comics with the release of Aliens, continuing the story lines of Ridley Scott’s iconic film franchise. Predator and the iconic crossover Aliens Vs. Predator followed, with each series practically outselling the last. Now, the publisher partners with Scott again, to bring sci-fi epic Prometheus to comics. With just under two months away from the launch of the ambitious and highly anticipated crossover, Fire and Stone, Dark Horse editor-in-chief Scott Allie, writers Chris Roberson (Aliens), Joshua Williamson (Predator), Christopher Sebela (Aliens Vs. Predator), and the Prometheus team of Paul Tobin and Juan Ferrerya, reveal just what’s in store for this grand universe!
