Official Press Release

SAN DIEGO - Comic-Con International (Comic-Con) is proud to present the San

Diego premier of the Too Much Coffee Man Opera at the Horton Grand Theater

(Espresso Theater) July 27 & 28, 2007.

The brainchild of artist/writer Shannon Wheeler, Too Much Coffee

Man first appeared as a self-published strip back in the early 1990s. Since

that time his creation has enjoyed life as a single strip in comic books,

alternative newspapers and a series of Graphic Novels, as well as an

incarnation as a magazine dedicated to comics, and interviews.

The opera, created by Wheeler and based on his famous comic

character, chronicles the tragedy when Too Much Coffee Man, a simple,

average cup ojoe, falls for his caffeine-supplying barista. Also vying for

her attention is Espresso Guy. Can all this coffee peacefully co-exist in

the already-twitchy world of relationships?

Too Much Coffee Man Opera will play at the Horton Grand Theater,

444 Fourth Avenue in San Diego. The theater is (appropriately) also home to

the long running favorite Triple Espresso. Performances of Too Much Coffee

Man Opera will coincide with Comic-Con, the largest comic book and popular

arts convention in the United States.

Those with a Comic-Con badge will be able to see the show free

(space permitting) on Friday, July 27 at 3:00pm, Saturday, July 28 at

1:30pm., and 11:00pm. Tickets for the Comic-Con performances will be

available at Shannon Wheelers booth (#2200) and at the Comic-Con booth

(#2045) located at Comic-Con inside the San Diego Convention Center.

Community performances open to the public will be held on

Friday, July 27 at 4:30pm and 11:00pm. Tickets for those performances are

available now through TICKETMASTER and, should any remain, at the theater

before performances. Show is general seating and tickets are $25.00 each.
