We’ve been quietly working on this one since last February and could not be more excited to finally get to announce it. And what an event to kick off 2015!
Brian K. Vaughan, author of SAGA, Y THE LAST MAN, PRIVATE EYE and more will be returning to the Isotope for the first time since 2004 for an epic event… two events, in fact! As SAGA is one of the most popular books in the entire industry we know his visit is going to be *very* popular and the Isotope staff wants you all to have a wonderful experience meeting him and for all to make amazing memories of Brian’s visit together. So we’ve decided on doing a duo of events to make everyone happy! First up is a daytime signing event for the under 21 crowd, and then an epic celebration later that evening for the folks who like our mix and mingle, bring-your-ID, after-dark events.
SAGA SIGNING w/ BRIAN K. VAUGHAN
3pm – 6pm, Friday January 9th
An all-ages autographing session completely free of charge because we love you! As always the Isotope believes in crafting a unique experience with our signings, giving everyone a chance to sit down for some one-on-one time at the drafting table with your favorite creator. This is sure to be a popular signing and we definitely want everyone to get time to actually talk with Brian so we kindly ask that you bring no more than 3 items for him to sign. On behalf of all of us, thanks in advance!
SAGA AFTER-PARTY w/ BRIAN K. VAUGHAN
8pm – Midnight, Friday January 9th
A 21+ event as only the Isotope can do! If you’ve been to an after-hours party at the Isotope before you know the great atmosphere and amazing crowd that will be turning out for this. This event has a casual backstage-after-the-show vibe and gives you all an opportunity to actually hang out and get to know Brian… the way we think an in-store appearance should truly be!
Each attendee of the SAGA AFTER-PARTY will be given, for free, our exclusive Brian K. Vaughan SAGA Cocktail Glass, an ultra-limited highball created exclusively for this event by BKV, Fiona Staples and the Isotope. We believe in making our events truly once-in-a-lifetime so these commemorative glasses the Isotope creates for attendees are truly rare, fewer than 200 are ever printed and afterwards we always destroy the screens and production is finished… available one night only and nowhere else on the entire planet ever again.

This event also features some secret special guests we’re not allowed to talk about, Isotope’s entertainment alchemist Kirsten Baldock‘s original works, and San Francisco’s beloved best on the wheels of steel, DJ BEARZBUB, spinning his unique brand of SAGA-inspired exotic grooves, hot b-sides, booty shaking nöyze, and rare beats.
And, of course, our featured guest himself… Brian K. Vaughan!
We’re looking forward to seeing you all at this duo of special events and truly giving you an experience with Brian that you will never forget, let’s kick off the new year together!
Please read our Harassment Policy, thank you.
UPDATE: The SAGA AFTER-PARTY event is now at maximum capacity. Sorry to those who missed out. To the rest of you… see you there!
