During Comic Con 2015, on Saturday, July 11, William Shatner, the iconic actor most noted for his role as Captain James Kirk in the television series and the movies “Star Trek” slipped unnoticed through a back door of the Chuck Jones Gallery in San Diego and stepped into a room full of cameras, press, and VIP collectors.


He spoke to the crowd about the genesis of the “Man O’ War” cinematic graphic novel and its art program, cracked a few choice jokes, and then he, along with the team of artists responsible for the art for the “Man O’ War” cinematic graphic novel, took turns embellishing and signing one of the canvas editions available for sale that evening.




Chuck Jones Gallery presented Mr. Shatner with a hand-painted cel art edition of Pepe le Pew which he acknowledged was his favorite Looney Tunes character.

He then met with individual collectors and signed their recently acquired works of art from “Man O’ War” and graciously had his photo taken with them.

And after all of the hoopla, the hand-shaking, signing, and smiling, Mr. Shatner just as quietly as he arrived, slipped out of the gallery and disappeared into the night.
