International Superstars Visit
New Isotope Location Launched in High Style

This last Wednesday the Isotope hosted the All-Star Opening featuring Jim Lee, Lee Bermejo, Matteo Casali, Michele Petrucci, and Grazia Lobaccaro. These international superstars were awesome guests, generously signing, sketching and chatting with their fans long past their scheduled signing hours. The waiting throng enjoyed great local beers and wines along with great company and comics while they waited for their turn behind the velvet rope for a tete-a-tete with the creators.

The evening's festivities were captured in stereoscopic 3-D by the utterly awesome Römmel Jamias for your vicarious viewing pleasure. To get the full effect of this next-best-thing-to-being-there event experience use the traditional red/cyan 3-D glasses, which you can get here if you don't have a pair of your own.

For the weak of heart who cannot bear the eye-popping goodness of Jim Lee and company in 3-D, there are are pictures for your viewing as well. And, of course, no Isotopic evening with all-star creators would be complete without beautiful new toiletseats to hang in the Isotope's Comic Rockstars Toiletseat Museum. Like this one:

Thanks to all who attended and especially to Jim Lee, Lee Bermejo, Matteo Casali, Michele Petrucci, and Grazia Lobaccaro for breaking in our new digs with style and panache!
