SF – Beast Wagon #4 Signing

000000000000-beastwagon4Artist John Pearson, co-creator of BEAST WAGON, appears at Mission: Comics & Art on Wednesday, July 13, 2016 at 4:00 PM for a pop-up show and signing!

ABOUT BEAST WAGON

During the course of the hottest day of the year, the delivery of a male Asiatic lion believed to be the ‘golden messiah’ – who prophecy foretells will permanently upset the established order – sparks a chain reaction of events in which the animals of Whipsnarl Zoo plot a revolution against their keepers.

As the heat wave and tensions rise, the boundary between animal and human begins to blur into a fever dream of madness and violence.

Created by Illustrator John Pearson and Writer Owen Michael Johnson – with letters by Colin Bell – Beast Wagon is a critically acclaimed and British Comic Award nominated fusion of drama, satire and dark comedy, blending contemporary themes of religious fanaticism, systems and consumerism, with inspiration from the long tradition of daring anthropomorphic comics from We3 and The Puma Blues to Pride Of Baghdad.

CA – Down the Darkest Street Signing

000000000000_Alex Segura

Author Alex Segura appears at Mysterious Galaxy Books on Monday, July 25, 2016 at 6:00 PM to sign his new novel Down the Darkest Street.

About the book:
Pete Fernandez should be dead. His life — professional and personal — is in ruins. His best friend is dead. His newspaper career is past tense. His ex is staying with him as her own marriage crumbles. On top of that, the former journalist finds himself in the eye of a dangerous storm; investigating a missing girl with an unexpected partner and inching closer and closer to a vicious, calculating killer cutting a swath of blood across Miami — while at the same time battling his own personal demons that refuse to be silenced.

Down the Darkest Street, the hard-boiled sequel to Alex Segura’s acclaimed debut, Silent City, tells a tale of redemption, survival and the sordid backstreets of Miami — while asking the question that many are too scared to answer: When faced with pure darkness, would you fold or fight?

About the Author:
Alex Segura is a novelist and comic book writer. He is the author of the Miami crime novel SILENT CITY, the first in a series featuring Pete Fernandez. SILENT CITY and its sequel, DOWN THE DARKEST STREET, out this year via Polis Books. He has also written a number of comic books, including the best-selling and critically acclaimed ARCHIE MEETS KISS storyline, the “Occupy Riverdale” story and the upcoming ARCHIE MEETS RAMONES.

Comics Legend Frank Miller Appears at Boston Comic Con 2016

Frank_Miller_DKR3-SQ

Press Release:

Boston Comic Con is thrilled to host celebrated creator FRANK MILLER in a rare convention appearance. Not only is this his only appearance in New England, but it’s also one of his only remaining appearances in the US this year.

This is an amazing opportunity for fans to meet one of the industry’s most significant talents. Miller’s seminal work on Batman and Daredevil redefined both characters and influenced an entire generation of creators. His independent titles Sin City and 300 have both been adapted to films.

Frank is appearing on Friday, August 12 only.

There are three special Frank Miller VIP Packages available each with unique art and autograph guarantee benefits. Click the link for further details.

Frank Miller is one of the most celebrated creators in comic book history, noted for combining film noir and manga influences in his comic art creations. Beginning with his run on Marvel’s Daredevil, during which he created the popular ninja assassin Elektra, Miller ushered in a darker, grittier vision of superheroes which paved the way for more mature themes to be explored in comic book form. His seminal work on Batman with The Dark Knight Returns and Year One continues to influence creators today and is sets the stages for the most recent films. His independent titles Sin City and 300 have both been adapted to movies, with Miller co-directing the latter alongside Robert Rodriguez. Most recently Miller has worked on All-Star Batman and Robin and currently is co-writing the third installment of Dark Knight Returns.

He joins a guest artist list of well over 80 of the world’s most talented comic book creators – a portfolio unmatched by any other comic book convention, in New England or elsewhere including Sam Kieth, Jae Lee, John Cassaday, Erik Larsen, Terry Dodson, Mike Allred, Greg Capullo, Adam Hughes, Arthur Adams, Amanda Conner, David Lloyd, Jimmy Palmiotti, Phil Jimenez, Scott Snyder, Mark Waid, Bernie Wrightson, Stan Sakai, and many more!

Media guests include William Shatner (Star Trek), Karen Gillan (Guardians of the Galaxy), Jenna Coleman (Doctor Who), Karl Urban (Star Trek Beyond),  Ben McKenzie (Gotham), John Barrowman (Arrow), Ciara Renee (Legends of Tomorrow), Robbie Amell (The Flash), Caity Lotz (Legends of Tomorrow), and more.
