BEST BETS: "Jessica Jones," "Big Trouble/Escape from New York" & More October 2016 Highlights
Start Time: 12:00AM End Time: 02:00PM
Midtown Comics in New York City is thrilled to host Saturday Night Live star Taran Killam along with Marc Andreyko for a special signing of their new IDW comic book, The Illegitimates #1, on Monday, December 16th, at 12:00pm at Midtown Comics’ Grand Central location. This is a limited capacity event for fans who purchase The Illegitimates #1, and Midtown Comics advises attendees to arrive early, and dress appropriately for cold weather.
Saturday Night Live star Taran Killam teams up with Harvey and Eisner nominated comic-book writer Marc Andreyko to reveal just who The Illegitimates are! When the world loses its greatest (and most promiscuous) super-spy, Jack Steele, a secret international espionage organization has no choice but to call in a new team to save the world, The Illegitimates! With no knowledge of the bond that ties the team together, The Illegitimates are thrust into a seedy world filled with crime, lust, and double-crosses. Each member of The Illegitimates is forced to use their unique skills to overcome their personality clashes and come together as a team.
“When Taran pitched me the high concept, I was hooked! To work with a dear friend on a brilliant idea is having my cake and eating it, too! I couldn't be prouder of The Illegitimates!" said enthused co-writer, Marc Andreyko.
Taran Killam says, “One of my favorite genres is the Secret Agent. This comic follows the concept of the super-spy-man-slut to its logical conclusion. A funny jumping off point that quickly becomes deadly serious. You’re getting five spies for the price of one! Each with their own personality, perspective and specialized elite espionage-combat skill set. You know, typical dysfunctional family stuff.”
The Illegitimates #1 is written by Taran Killam and Marc Andreyko with art by Kevin Sharpe and cover by Jerry Ordway.
