Philip Haldiman will be on hand June 2-5 at Phoenix Comicon selling “That’s Life!,” the much-anticipated fourth issue of his comic book series “My Big Break.”

Exclusively available at Phoenix Comicon, the series chronicles his life in Hollywood, as well as experiences working on the cult film, “The Room.” Issue 4 will be released for Comicon attendees exclusively before a national release of the comic book at a later date.

The celebrated and multi-talented Tommy Cannon is the comic book series’ artist. Mr. Cannon’s talent and Haldiman’s tales are backed by Kyle Bennett, a publishing veteran bringing more than a decade of experience to the creative team.

The last three issues of “My Big Break” have taken “The Room” fans inside Mr. Haldiman’s experiences auditioning for the enigmatic Tommy Wiseau, creator of the most popular cult film since “The Rocky Horror Picture show.”

In issue 4, Mr. Haldiman officially takes on the biggest role of his life as Denny, the curious and loveable next door neighbor in Mr. Wiseau’s film. The comic book follows Mr. Haldiman in his first day on the set and includes a number of new features sure to entertain fans.

Hardcore followers of “The Room” will appreciate that issue 4 will include the first appearance of Elizabeth and the origin story of Denny and Chris-R. Phoenix Comicon is held at the Phoenix Convention Center, 100 N. Third St. in Phoenix. Go to www.phoenixcomicon.com.
