Normally The Beat doesn’t promote a lot of store signings, but we have to make an exception for next weekend’s Jim Lee mega-signing at Sci-Fi City in Orlando. JIm will be signing Saturday Feb 16th from 1PM-6PM at Sci-Fi City , 6006 E.Colonial Drive. Owner Steve Henderlong assures us this is going to be a fantastic event, and the store even has a COUNTDOWN CLOCK to the signing on its site!

Now, why are we making an exception for this signing? Basically we’re going along to cover this signing, and it’s going to be the Wild West Comedy Show: 30 Days & 30 Nights of signings. Or if it isn’t, we’ll make stuff up. And that’s our promise to YOU, the faithful Beat reader.


  1. 30 days on the road? As a gentle warning, read John Henry Days by Coulson Whitehead. The main character is a junketeer who follows media events. The main theme is how a legend can affect people in different ways.
    And after you read that, grab a copy of The Myth Of The American Superhero by Lawrence and Jewett.
