Comic Writer Sam Humphries at Phat Collectibles This Thursday!
Still feeling those pangs of nostalgia from Comic Con last weekend? We know you're not alone. Three days of indulging your inner comic nerd in the presence of industry greats and Hollywood A-listers can leave you swooning for days thereafter (hello, Guillermo Del Toro!). There's little that can be done about it, however, except for an upcoming event happening at Phat Collectibles this Thursday where Sam Humphries, comic writer for Marvel, Boom Studios, and Image, among others, will be around for various Q&A and book signings of the advance copy of Legendary Star Lord, which you can secure if you buy a ticket to see Guardians of the Galaxy at Anaheim's UltraLuxe Cinemas or at Phat Collectibles (you were probably gonna do that anyway, right?).
The Internet is all abuzz for what's looking to be the blockbuster hit of the summer (as all comic book-related films tend to be) so buying your ticket early would probably save you from that weekend ticket rush; Guardians of the Galaxy, directed by James Gunn and starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and Vin Diesel, is slated for major release this Friday, August 1st.
Humphries has a lengthy roster of Marvel works, such as the John Carter series, the Avengers A.I. series, and of course, Legendary Star Lord. But his work goes into other varied subjects such as rock history; he's co-written a comic book on legendary punk venue CBGB and one on the classic kids show Fraggle Rock. This Thursday you'll get many chances to discuss all manner of comic things with Humphries: at 4pm Humphries will do a book signing of Star Lord in store at Phat, then present at the 6pm screening of Guardians of the Galaxy, and then his epic Q&A session at 7:30pm. And oh yeah, there will be some neat raffle prizes too.
Check out the exciting info and details on the event page, where you can also RSVP. See you there!
