UK – Winnebago Graveyard #1 Signing

Press Release:

Alison Sampson appears at Gosh Comics for a signing on Saturday June 24th, from 1:00 – 2:00 PM to celebrate the release of Winnebago Graveyard #1 from Image Comics!

Alison first came onto a lot of people’s radars with her 2014 collaboration with Nathan Edmondson, Genesis (of which we currently have some signed copies available in-store and online). Her mix of detail and innovative layouts (both a tip of the hat to her work as an architect) impressed a great deal, so – while we’ve loved her appearances here and there on short stories and single issues – we’ve been waiting with some excitement for her next major project.

Now, working with legendary horror comics writer Steve Niles, it’s here! Winnebago Graveyard is a slice of satanist suspense, as a vacationing family stumbles into a town of satanists with sacrifice on their mind. A gory, 70s horror-inspired story unfolds as the family peels back the layers of secret and conspiracy that envelop the town. Each issue of the 4 issue mini series also includes back matter essays looking behind the scenes on the book, and essays on occult topics illustrated by a brilliant line-up of artists.

UK – Stained #1 Signing

David Baron and Simon Bowland will be signing STAINED #1 at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Saturday 17th June from 4:00 – 5:00 PM.

Meet Emma London.

Emma is a recovery artist and bounty hunter for hire. She is strong, possibly indomitable, and – did we mention? – part machine.

Emma is the type that dives head first into things that most wouldn’t and shouldn’t.

Those dark places that no one else will go to track down the subhuman criminals lurking in the underbelly of society and brings them to justice.

Emma attempts to take down a pair of international diamond smugglers, but her story explodes forward when initially what was thought to be a hunt for a priceless painting with a record high bounty, leads her to something darker and more monstrous than she could have ever imagined.

David Baron began his career working for InColor and was subsequently hired by Wildstorm FX. Since then, his work has primarily appeared in books published by WildStorm and DC Comics. He was the primary colourist on The Authority during the Mark Millar and Frank Quitely era, spent several years colouring JLA, and has recently coloured several issues of DC Comics’ weekly series, 52.

Simon Bowland has been lettering comics for more than a decade, and is currently working for DC, Image, Valiant, IDW, Dark Horse, Dynamite, Boom, 451, Titan, Oni, and more.
