Official Press Release
Wednesday has become a highpoint of the week at Brave New World, Santa Clarita’s premiere pop culture retailer. Not only is it the day every week that they get brand new comic book shipments, but for the past two years, ABC’s Lost has been on the top of every BNW citizen’s TiVo list. “So, when we found out that one of our favorite Lost writers, Javier Grillo-Marxauch, was writing a comic book, we knew that what we needed to do,” says BNW’s proprietor and Lost guru, Atom!.
On Wednesday, January 24, Brave New World is getting ‘Lost’! Join your friends at Brave New World, and writer and supervising producer of ABC’s hit primetime drama ‘Lost’, Javier Grillo-Marxuach, for a viewing party and release of Grillo-Marxuach’s newest comic work, The Middleman.
In addition to his award winning work on ‘Lost’, Grillo-Marxuach has written and produced episodes of “Boomtown,” “The Pretender,” “Charmed,”and “seaQuest”, as well as having produced several network pilots, written and directed an award-winning short film, and contributed stories to “The Dead Zone” and “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”, before turning his talents to the world of comic books. Though there aren’t any plane crashes and mysterious islands in The Middleman, Grillo-Marxuach deftly tells the tale of Wendy Watson in his new book. Wendy thought she knew her own life – an endless streams of meaningless temp jobs and artist’s block – until a freak accident brought her into contact with The Middleman: a covert operative in the world’s most absurdly secretive organization. Drafted into the ranks of The Middleman’s highly enigmatic operation, Wendy now works with her new mentor as the planet’s first line of defense against threats extra-, infra- and juxta- terrestrial, and is bound by a solemn oath to the Middleman creed: Fighting evil, so you don’t have to!
Javier will be signing his new book starting at 5pm tomorrow and at 8pm will be screening this week’s episode, as well as participating in a grueling, and hopefully informative, Q&A session. Door prizes, raffles, and goodies for all attendees, including refreshments provided by Spumoni and your friends at Brave New World.
