Solestar Signing GAYou're invited to join the creators of Solestar for a graphic novel signing on Wednesday, April 24th, from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. at Golden Apple Comics in Los Angeles, CA

Golden Apple will continue its monthly wine mixer series by hosting comic book creator Siike Donnelly and a number of the 70+ artists who contributed to the jam-style graphic novel, SolestarSolestar is an original superhero story whose protagonist has only 24 hours to live.  It features artwork donated by over 70 different artists and educational information regarding brain aneurysms, the proceeds of which will go to the Brain Aneurysm Foundation. 

As a brain aneurysm survivor, Donnelly was forced to rebuild his speech patterns and relearn how to walk.  With his company, The Naïve Project, he led a successful Kickstarter campaign to publish Solestar in early 2013.  According to Donnelly, “I wanted to create a superhero that knew loss right from the start. It’s kind of the staple when creating someone with powers. They have to come from tragedy to obtain victory. This is something I now understand on a personal level. Hopefully, victory follows my tragedy with this project.”

Dear Fanboy Comics Readers:

We know that, for many of you, the be-all-and-end-all of sci-fi TV can be defined by two words: Doctor WhoWho fervor is on the rise, given the show’s 50th anniversary this year, so Broadway Paperbacks has fanned the fandom's flame by introducing its paperback original Doctor Who tie-in series. Featuring all-new Eleventh Doctor adventures, Justin Richards’s Doctor Who: Plague of the Cybermen, Nicholas Briggs’s Doctor Who: The Dalek Generation, and Tommy Donbavand’s Doctor Who: Shroud of Sorrow are penned in collaboration with BBC’s Cardiff-based TV production team. These authors were given advance access to the scripts of forthcoming episodes and made privy to the secrets of the Doctor’s future before even the most fanatical of fans. Approved by the BBC to make sure nothing is overlooked, these books have the intimate and authentic feel of lost episodes.

Our friends at Broadway have generously provided us not only with a copy of each of the paperbacks, but also a Doctor Who Christmas in April Blu-ray Giftpack (featuring “Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol” and “Doctor Who: The Doctor, The Widow and The Wardrobe”) to give away to our Dalek-loving readers.
