Writer Elliott Serrano appears at Defiant Comics once again on Saturday, September 3, 2016 from noon till 4:00 PM for the release of his one-shot from Dynamite, ARMY OF DARKNESS: ASH FOR PRESIDENT!

ARMY OF DARKNESS: ASH FOR PRESIDENT ONE-SHOT
(W) Elliot Serrano (A) Diego Galindo (CA) Elliot Fernandez
He’s faced off against demons in Hell. He’s battled the dead in the future. He’s even combated the armies of darkness in space. But Ash Williams has never gone up against evil in an arena like this: the political arena! From the writer who brought you “Hail to the Queen, Baby” and “Ash Saves Obama” comes the off-beat adventure that answers the question: “What if Ash Williams ran for President of the United States?” When the Necronomicon Ex Mortis gives him a cryptic message, Ash Williams enlists the help of a beautiful psychic to help him track down the agent of the “Great Darkness”, an evil so great that it threatens both humankind and the demon realm. But what happens when the search for truth takes Ash on a trail that he never expected… the campaign trail?

IL – TJ Miller Performs

000000000000000-tj-millerComedian TJ Miller (Silicon Valley, Deadpool, Ready Player One) brings his latest standup tour to the Vic Theatre on Friday, August 25, 2016 at 8:00 PM! Tickets available at the link!

T.J. MILLER is one of the most sought after comedians in the comedy world, but not in the drama world, or the finance world. He was named one of Variety’s “Top 10 Comics to Watch,” and EW’s “Next Big Things in Comedy”. Miller’s voice stars in Disney’s Academy Award-winning animated feature, BIG HERO 6. You may recognize his non-animated face and body from his roles in FOX’s big screen comic book adaptation of DEADPOOL, the highest grossing R-rated film of all time, 2014’s surprise indie hit TRANSFORMERS 4, and Mike Judge’s HBO comedy series SILICON VALLEY, now in its third season, for which he received the Critics’ Choice Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Television Comedy. His podcast “Cashing in with T.J. Miller” on nerdist.com is listened to by 12 and ½ people, and he is a nationally touring standup artist, crisscrossing the country listening to Kris Kross (he’s also done shows in the U.K. and Puerto Rico (Puerto Rico did not go well)). He has been performing his absurdist observational stand-up act for over 10 years, and has never gone to the bathroom in his pants on stage.

His hour-long Comedy Central stand-up special T.J. MILLER: NO REAL REASON and hip-hop/pop/folk music album “The Extended Play E.P.”, an E.P. with 41 tracks, and the ILLEGAL ART REMIXTAPE are all available now. He hosted Comedy Central’s MASH-UP, a mashup of standup, sketches and visualizations, and has appeared on CHELSEA LATELY more than most women his height. He got his start touring with Second City in Chicago and improvising with Annoyance Theater, iO, and managers at electronics stores asking why he was late and smelled like gin.

Miller has been in a number of major studio films including CLOVERFIELD, SHE’S OUT OF MY LEAGUE, SEEKING A FRIEND FOR THE END OF THE WORLD, ROCK OF AGES, OUR IDIOT BROTHER, YOGI BEAR 3D (Ranger Jones, his greatest role to date), UNSTOPPABLE, and GET HIM TO THE GREEK.

Miller also talks like an old drag queen after a hard night of chain smoking, and thus voiced the character Tuffnut in the Oscar-nominated animated film HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON and HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2. He voices Robbie from GRAVITY FALLS on Disney, Tuffnut in the Netflix HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON TV series, and GORBURGER, a very strange show you just have to google to understand.

Upcoming films include OFFICE CHRISTMAS PARTY, opposite Jason Bateman and Jennifer Aniston, and READY PLAYER ONE, directed by Steven Spielberg. He resides in Hollywood, California, where he struggles to find meaning in an uncertain world. He is a comedian.

IL – Michael Moreci Signing

000000000000000-mmoreci-defiant

Writer MICHAEL MORECI appears at Defiant Comics on Wednesday, August 17, 2016 from 4:00 – 8:00 PM. He’ll be signing copies of his TWO new number one issues: SUICIDE SQUAD MOST WANTED: EL DIABLO & BOOMERANG #1 and REINCARNATE #1!

Suicide Squad (soon to be a major motion picture!) follows Boomerang and the Squad as they embark on a mission to take down a ruthless dictator within a small, unstable Central American nation, but when the mission goes awry, the Squad must jump in a helicopter and flee as all hell breaks loose. But amid the chaos, the team realizes one of them was accidentally left behind: Boomerang! How can he stay alive long enough to be rescued when a whole army wants him dead?

ReincarNate (soon to be a major television series!) focuses on down-on-his-luck private eye Nate McCoy. After being shot in the head during an investigation, Nate gains the ability to interact with versions of himself from past lives: Jameson, a wild west lawman, and Alan, a contract killer from the 1960s. With their help, Nate takes on the dangerous underworld, crooked cops, and scumbags, including El Panda, a criminal heavyweight who may have been responsible for the murder of his father.
