MO – The Empty Man #1 Signing

tem

Meet local superstar writer Cullen Bunn at Star Clipper for the release of his new Boom! Studios series, THE EMPTY MAN, on Wednesday, June 11 fromnoon 12 pm to 4:00 pm.

There’s nothing scarier than horror that hits home-a tale of terror only one or two steps removed from our reality. THE EMPTY MAN is a dystopic version of the world we know, where a terrifying disease has taken on almost deific connotations.

Cullen Bunn (THE SIXTH GUN, VENOM) and Vanesa R. Del Rey (HIT) are two of the most exciting talents in the industry, and perfectly in sync on this haunting new crime procedural.

It’s been one year since the first reported case of the Empty Man disease, and no drug has been able to slow its progress. The cause is unknown, and the symptoms include fits of rage, hideous hallucinations, suicidal dementia, followed by death, or a near lifeless, “empty” state of catatonia. As murder cults rise nationwide, the FBI and CDC enter a joint investigation of the Empty Man, hoping to piece together clues to stop the cult and uncover a cure.

Come meet Cullen Bunn and get an autographed copy of THE EMPTY MAN #1!

MO – Killjoy: The Raygun Chronicles Signing

kj042614

Meet comic artist Thomas Shaner for the release of his debut graphic novel Killjoy: The Raygun Chronicles at Star Clipper on Saturday, June 7th from 2:00 to 5:00 pm.

“Killyjoy” is an adult neo-noir/science-fiction comic about an elite taskforce of psionic internal affairs officers in charge of investigating the rest of thepsionic police forth in order to see if they are abusing their powers. They are part of the MPIS (Ministry of Psionic Integrity and Security). These officers are nicknamed “Killjoys”, because they just seem to rain on everyone’s parade. Spencer Solomon, a fresh faced naive young recruit straight from basic training, has reservations about joining the oddball group of Killjoys. Comprising the rest of the Killjoy team is Fabian Holst, a straight lace bureaucrat on the edge of retirement, and Maire Bluenote, a rebellious free spirited Irish woman whose current hair color changes more often than her boyfriends. They all work together under the Prime Minster of MPIS, Sherman Siofra. A very moody, cynical, and disparaging man with a shrouded past.

Art and original concept by Thomas Shaner
Colors by Ester Salguero
Written by Andrew M. Henderson
Character designs by Shayne Cassidy/ Carlos Cara
Letters by Samuel Grey.

Thomas Shaner is an Artist/Cartoonist from Cape Girardeau, Mo. He has two degrees from Southeast Missouri State University — B.A. in Art, and B.F.A. in Painting. He has been a lifelong fan of Star Trek, and his favorite series is Star Trek: The Next Generation.
