Official Press Release
Brave New World Comics, the 2008 Eisner award winning store located in Los Angeles County's Santa Clarita Valley, is proud to announce a signing event with writer Neil Bailey.
Bailey recently completed work on Bluewater Productions 'Female Force: Michelle Obama' comic book. The book, which set printing records for the publisher, is the fourth in the Female Force series, which has also featured Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, and Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. The publisher has a long history with strong female characters, and upcoming Female Force subjects include Caroline Kennedy and Princess Diana. "Mrs. Obama is a dynamic force and one of the most influential women in the world,” said Bluewater Productions President, Darren G. Davis. "Her potential influence on future policy decisions makes her a fascinating figure to feature.”
Brave New World's Saturday, May 9th event will be Mr. Bailey's only California appearance in support of this book. Bailey says, “I'm very proud to be signing at my first choice stop in California. It'll be my only California signing for the Michelle book, in recognition of the shop I had the distinct honor of seeing win an Eisner last year.” He continued, “Come on out, folks, we'll have a great time!"
Portlyn, who along with her husband Atom!, owns and operates the award winning store, said, “We're thrilled to have Neal in for a signing! All of the Female Force books, as well as any President Obama merchandise, have been hugely popular, and I feel quite certain that Neal's book will also sell out very quickly.” Atom! interjected, “It's a great way to celebrate Mother's Day, too. If anyone's story illustrates the struggles and rewards of being a working mother, Michelle Obama's does. I'm looking forward to reading all about her!”
While there has been no confirmation from the First Lady's office, Mrs. Obama has been invited to attend the event.
Brave New World is located at 22722 Lyons Ave., in Newhall, CA, 91321
