August 23 – Coleman Engle & Jeremy Sorese signing Stephen Universe


Big Planet Comics is proud to welcome our good friends Coleman Engle and Jeremy Sorese, to celebrate their new series, Steven Universe!

Steven Universe is an awesome cartoon created by Rebecca Sugar on Cartoon Network, and this new comic series by writer Jeremy Sorese and artist Coleman Engle has even more of Steven’s adventures! Steven Universe is about three magical female warriors called the crystal gems, and Steven, who inherited a crystal from his mother, is kind of a doofus, leading to lots of adventures.

Coleman’s recent comics include Bravest Warriors, and Bee and Puppycat.

Jeremy has written and illustrated numerous comics, including A Reminder, Tender Tinder, and Imaginary Dates.

Coleman & Jeremy will be appearing at two of our stores:
Big Planet Comics of Vienna noon to 2pm
Big Planet Comics of Washington DC 3pm to 5pm
