Justin Giampaoli @ Comic Quest [Signing]

On Saturday October 20th, 2018, I’ll be signing copies of Rome West at Comic Quest and discussing it with their monthly book club. Rome West is a 112-page trade paperback published by Dark Horse, collecting the entire series, along with several pages of never-before-seen bonus material. It’s an alt-history take on the founding of the Americas that explores the premise “What if the Roman Empire came to the New World 1,000 years before Columbus?” as it follows the descendants of one family. 

It’s co-written by me and New York Times Best Seller and multiple Eisner Award Nominee Brian Wood (Channel Zero, The Massive, Sword Daughter), with art by Andrea Mutti (Rebels, Infinite Dark, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo), colors by Lee Loughridge (Deadly Class, Batman, Stumptown), letters by John and Ryane Hill (Harley Quinn, Swamp Thing, Wednesday Comics), and cover art by Matt Taylor (Unfollow, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Southern Cross).

The event starts at 2pm on October 20th and Comic Quest has been located in Lake Forest, CA (Orange County) for an impressive 26 years! I’ll also be handing out free wooden nickels from the alt-history world of Rome West, and free Rome West prints which were exclusives offered at the Dark Horse signing at San Diego Comic-Con. I hope to see you there! For more information, check out Facebook.com/ComicQuest.

Justin Giampaoli @ Yesteryear Comics [Signing]


On Wednesday July 25, 2018, I’ll be signing copies of Rome West at Yesteryear Comics, which is hosting me for their next in-store signing. Rome West is a 112-page trade paperback published by Dark Horse, collecting the entire series, along with several pages of never-before-seen bonus material. It’s an alt-history take on the founding of the Americas that explores the premise “What if the Roman Empire came to the New World 1,000 years before Columbus?” as it follows the descendants of one family.

It’s co-written by me and New York Times Best Seller and multiple Eisner Award Nominee Brian Wood (Channel Zero, The Massive, Sword Daughter), with art by Andrea Mutti (Rebels, Port of Earth, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo), colors by Lee Loughridge (Deadly Class, Batman, Stumptown), letters by John and Ryane Hill (Harley Quinn, Swamp Thing, Wednesday Comics), and cover art by Matt Taylor, who also did the cover for the San Diego Comic Con International 2018 Souvenir Book

I’ll be signing in the store from 9am to 3pm on July 25th, and will have some additional goodies to offer that I’ve worked on, like various trades and hardcovers of DMZ (DC/Vertigo), as well as free wooden nickels from the alt-history world of Rome West, and free Rome West prints which were exclusives offered at the recent Dark Horse signing held at San Diego Comic-Con. I hope to see you there! For more information, check out Facebook.com/YesteryearComics.
