Borders Torrance is please to welcome Milo Ventimiglia when he visits to discuss and sign BESERKER and REST. The lives of Aaron and Farris, two young and completely different men, are turned upside down when they discover an animalistic and uncontrollable rage living inside them.
I really consider to order it, althrough I own the single issues - too bad.

Then Milo arrived...sigh...my mantra was gone. All that admirable levelheadedness was booted by a case of the giggles. Not laughter. Not chuckles. Giggling, as if I was 12, intolerably stupid and sitting through a sex ed course.
I giggled as I took the stalker-ish photos from across the room, as I told my friends who "those other guys" were, as we planned who would take pictures of who. Giggling is so not me. But I could not stop! I tried desperately to calm my belligerence as I had my book signed by Jeff and Russ....but the battle was lost as soon as Milo looked at me and said "Thanks for coming out." That messy Jess-esque hair, those eyes....swoooon!
I said "Hi" (deja vu) and dissolved once more. Apparently...giggling works better than shocked silence. I apologized for my silliness with a brilliant "I'm sorry" and...you guys aren't gonna believe this, its amaaaaazing. He said "Whats to apologize for? Beautiful smile and laugh..." Yeah you can squeal 'cause I did! But wait, wait! It gets even better! Like all the others before and after me, I asked for a picture and when I leaned in for my cousin to snap the shot he didn't just put a hand on the small of my back or make the classic Jess smirk that melts me completely....he rested his head on my shoulder. I could actually feel his wonderfully tousled hair tickling the side of my face and neck....sigh...I squealed of course, so loud, and let my head drop onto his. I don't think I regained all my cognitive functions for about 24 hours. Even now, reminiscing, I can't remove this idiotic smile from my face.
It was so AMAZING that I don't even care that I came out looking like a lunatic hehehe. Wow...good times. :)
Thanks again to those of you who sent in birthday wishes for Milo. I had a good time. I have my encounter and video posted. www.miloventimigliadsc.com/

There Is Also A Very Cute Video Introduction Of Him With Russ! Gosh, I Love Him! :)
The premise was described as a group of average people who discover that they actually have ancient Norse based powers and are a part of a secret underground war between the forces of good and evil that has been raging for over a thousand years, with "lots of torsos being ripped off and flying around."
Divide Pictures would like to ultimately turn the project into a feature film, but first they want to concentrate on making a really cool comic out of it.
"I'm a fan of comics, I'm a fan boy," Ventimiglia said. "Yeah, we would like to make a movie out of it, but first and foremost we want to make an awesome comic. It's such a rad story and visually I was just super stoked to see it in a comic book format." milo ventimiglia, divide pictures
