You’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, Solestar. Solestar 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.”
Copies of the Solestar graphic novel will be available for purchase, and the proceeds will go to the Brain Aneurysm Foundation, www.bafound.org.
We hope that you will join us for this special evening of comics! Stay tuned for updates on the event’s Facebook page.
