Members of the Grammy-nominated band Fall Out Boy will sign copies of their new comic book series Saturday at Atomic Comics’ Chandler Fashion Center location, 3155 w.

FOB Presents Fall Out Toy Works is an anthology loosely based on the band’s song “Tiffany Blews” from the CD “Folie à Deux.” The five-issue miniseries was envisioned by Fall Out Boy and Los Angeles designer Darren Romanelli, penned by Brett Lewis (Bulletproof Monk), brought to life with art by Sam Basri of Imaginary Friends Studios, and created in partnership with Jeff Krelitz of Double Barrel Motion Labs.

The story follows the complex relationship between the creator, The Toymaker, and the created, the android Tiffany, who embark on a turbulent ride in a world of unscrupulous characters and sinister plans to find the true meaning of life and love.

To get Wentz and Hurley’s signatures, you must buy the comic and one additional item. See the Atomic Comics site for more information.
