May 8, 2019: Excellence #1 Signings

Writer Brandon Thomas and artist Khary Randolph appear at both Collector’s Paradise locations to sign the first issue of their new Image Comics / Skybound Entertainment series EXCELLENCE. They will sign from 11 AM – 1 PM at the Winnetka store and 5 PM – 7 PM at the Pasadena store.

Spencer Dales was born into a world of magic. His father belongs to the Aegis, a secret society of black magicians ordered by their unseen masters to better the lives of others—those with greater potential—but never themselves. Now it’s time for Spencer to follow in his father’s footsteps, but all he sees is a broken system in need of someone with the wand and the will to change it. But in this fight for a better future, who will stand beside him? KHARY RANDOLPH (We Are Robin, Noble, Black, TECH JACKET) and BRANDON THOMAS (HORIZON, The Many Adventures of Miranda Mercury, Noble, Voltron) ignite a generational war in this action-fantasy series, made entirely by creators of color, and committed to one truth above all others—Excellence is Real.
