Fans of the new media maven might even have a shot at appearing on television. The signing is being filmed for Smith's reality television show Comic Book Men, entering its second season on AMC this fall.
Smith, the Jersey-centric director behind films like Clerks and Chasing Amy, posted the update on his Facebook page and encouraged fans to stop by the Broad Street comic book shop between 2 and 5 p.m. Though Smith sightings locally aren't too rare - Smith has filmed spots for Comic Book Men in Red Bank along with the show's stars - public displays have been limited.
According to a post on Smith's SModcast website, attendees are asked to arrive early and are required to sign a release form. There is a limit of two autographs per person.
. The show debuted in February with a run of six hour-long episodes after Walking Dead. After gaining steam through it's run, the show was renewed for a second season, this time with 16, half-hour episodes.
Season two of Comic Book Men premieres on Oct. 14.
