Signings & Events Calendar
November – December 2013
Midtown Comics in New York City is excited to welcome actor Peter Facinelli along with his producing partner Rob Defranco for a special book signing of their new comic book, Protocol: Orphans #1 from BOOM! Studios, on Wednesday, November 20th, from 7:30pm to 8:30pm at the Midtown Comics Downtown location.
Purchase of Protocol: Orphans #1 is required to attend the signing. One additional item may be signed.
Actor Peter Facinelli (Twilight Saga, Nurse Jackie) and producing partner Rob DeFranco (A7sle Films) are the creators of Protocol: Orphans. Written by Michael Alan Nelson (Day Men, Supergirl) and drawn by Mariano Navarro, Protocol: Orphans is an action-packed espionage series with a compelling cast of young characters struggling with their transition into adulthood. Adopted by the government. Trained as deadly spies. Abandoned by everybody but each other. Protocol: Orphans is a tense thriller perfect for fans of fun spy fiction like TV’s Alias or Mission: Impossible.
“I love a good espionage story,” says BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “Protocol: Orphans delivers; it’s a smart, stylish, and fast-paced thriller. If you miss shows like Alias, you’re in for a treat.”
