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.

April 24, 2019: Star Trek: Year Five’s Writers Signing

The new IDW Publishing Star Trek: Year Five series is written by two guys who don’t need too much introduction to Collector’s Paradise customers, Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly. It features art by Stephen Thompson. Greg Hildebrandt provides the cover for the first issue. And there is a “collaborative writer’s room” for the series; including Lanzing, Kelly, plus Brandon Easton, Jody Houser, and another good friend of our stores, Jim McCann.

At our signing on April 24th at Collector’s Paradise – Pasadena, (CLICK TO RSVP PLEASE) you will get to meet the whole writer’s room, as they sign the first issue AND a special limited edition commemorative poster, created for the book’s release and available, while supplies last, first come … with purchase of the first issue of the book. All variants for the first issue will also be available, strictly on first come, first served basis.

The crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise left Earth four years ago. They’ve traveled to strange new worlds, defeated impossible foes, and made universe-changing decisions. But now, with the end in sight, they’ll have to face their biggest challenge yet. Step aboard the Enterprise with Kirk, Spock, Bones, Uhura, Sulu, Scotty, and Chekov as they begin the end of their original Five Year Mission and boldly go into an uncertain future in this new continuing Star Trek series!
