wEBFifth-Beatle-SigningWriter/producer Vivek Tiwary will be signing copies of his new graphic novel- The Fifth Beatle – at Forbidden Planet NYC. Signed copies ARE available for mail order as of this posting, so jump on that. I’ve had the pleasure of reading the book and (straight up, no hyperbole) it’s SUPERB. It’s also one of the prettiest books you will ever buy, should you choose to do so.

If I was the kind of jerk who wrote crap like “Nuff said” I would write “Nuff said” regarding our Warren Ellis event. No offense intended to the beloved writers, artists, singers, magicians, freakshow performers, internationally famous rock bands- what have you- who rocked Forbidden Planet events in 2013, but THIS WILL BE OUR BIGGEST SIGNING OF THE YEAR.

Fifth Beatle Singing November 20th

We’re pleased as punch to announce that on Wednesday, November 20th, Vivek J. Tiwary will be signing copies of his new graphic novel- the highly anticipated The Fifth Beatle – right here at Forbidden Planet NYC!

The book, published by Dark Horse and releasing 11/19, has got a TON of buzz about it, with a feature film in the works. Vivek is an award-winning producer, writer, and financier for film, television, theater and music and The Fifth Beatle is his first major comic work as writer/creator… And he’s a swell fella. Heck, he even mentioned FP in his bio…

“Vivek’s earliest childhood memories include browsing the comic book racks at Forbidden Planet with his parents and listening to their Beatles’ records at home.”

NYC area pals, we hope to see you here Wednesday the 20th when the festivities kick off at 6pm. Can’t make it to our event? You can pre-order signed copies by mail!  Standard editions (only $19.99 retail!) can be purchased here and collectors editions can be purchased here.
