A brief bio of Tony Bedard:
Tony began at Valiant Comics as the editor and writer of several titles including Rai, Psi-Lords, and Magnus Robot Fighter. His early work is often credited by his full name – Anthony Bedard. After Valiant, Tony moved to freelance work for Broadway, Malibu and Crusade Comics, where he wrote the first two issues of Shi: The Series.

Tony then moved to an editorial position at DC Comics. Here he worked on a number of projects, the most notable being the Hourman monthly. He eventually moved into the Vertigo imprint where he edited several monthly titles, including Vertigo’s longest running title Hellblazer.

In 2001 Bedard signed an exclusive contract with CrossGen Comics. Bedard provided editorial knowledge to the company and took over writing CrossGen’s launch title Mystic. He went on to co-create Negation with Mark Waid and wrote a number of series for Crossgen. Bedard was writing the mini-series Negation War (which featured characters from the Negation series and was meant to wrap up important plot threads in Negation and the other CrossGen titles) when CrossGen filed for bankruptcy. As a result, only two issues of the series were ever published, and Bedard became the last writer of the Sigilverse.

After CrossGen, Bedard began work on the Marvel Comics series Exiles, which he wrote for 44 issues and an annual. Bedard also scripted Uncanny X-Men #472-474. Apart from Exiles he had a number of side projects, including the mini-series Spider-Man: Breakout and the final 6 issues of the Rogue monthly comic book.

Tony returned to DC Comics and worked on portions of the weekly series Countdown, a six issue arc on Supergirl and the Legion of Super-Heroes and a four issue Black Canary mini-series.Bedard then went on to write fill-in arcs on both Supergirl and Birds of Prey as well as contributing to The Outsiders fifth week event in August. He was the regular writer for Birds of Prey from #118 until the series end with #127. In 2009 he launched R.E.B.E.L.S with artist Andy Clarke and in 2010 Bedard became the ongoing writer for Green Lantern Corps starting with issue 48, coinciding with the beginning of the “Brightest Day” crossover event and in 2011 he launched the bi-weekly DC Universe Online Legends series co-written with Marv Wolfman.

Craig Thompson signs at Bridge City Comics on Friday, October 7 from 6pm – 9pm!

Press Release:

Bridge City Comics is proud to announce our Night with Craig Thompson and Habibi on Friday, October 7, 2011 from 6pm – 9pm! This event is free to the public. Craig will be in attendance to sign autographs but offering sketches will be at his discretion.

Craig has graciously created brand new artwork for a print available ONLY during our signing event on Friday, October 7! If you buy a copy of Habibi from Bridge City Comics from its release on September 20 through the signing on October 7th, you’ll be given a special card. Bring the card with you to the signing and we will give you a copy of the print FOR FREE during the event (while supplies last)! Prints will also be available for $10 each if you bought Habibi somewhere else.

Come help us celebrate the long-awaited release of Craig Thompson’s long-form masterpiece, Habibi! Craig took the world by storm with his 2003 592-page semi-autobiographical graphic novel, Blankets. And now he’s outdone himself with Habibi, a 672-page story of two children bound together by chance, who grow together, then apart, as they struggle to find a place for themselves in the world.

Bridge City Comics will have copies of Habibi on hand for purchase during the event ($35), as well as a special, limited event-only sale on Craig’s Blankets graphic novel ($15 during the event, regularly $30 while supplies last).

Bridge City Comics is located at 3725 N. Mississippi Ave in North Portland. Please call 503-282-5484 or e-mail info@bridgecitycomics.com for more information.

About Habibi: Sprawling across an epic landscape of deserts, harems, and modern industrial clutter, Habibi tells the tale of Dodola and Zam, refugee child slaves bound to each other by chance, by circumstance, and by the love that grows between them. We follow them as their lives unfold together and apart; as they struggle to make a place for themselves in a world (not unlike our own) fueled by fear, lust, and greed; and as they discover the extraordinary depth and frailty of their connection. At once contemporary and timeless, Habibi gives us a love story of astounding resonance: a parable about our relationship to the natural world, the cultural divide between the first and third worlds, the common heritage of Christianity and Islam, and, most potently, the magic of storytelling.
