SF – Inkstuds Tour

inks

Press Release:

Mission: Comics welcomes artists Brandon Graham and Simon Roy, partners in the relaunch of PROPHET on Saturday, April 19th at 7:00 pm! All part of the Inkstuds 500 Tour with Robin McConnell.

Brandon Graham well known for his puny books, KING CITY, MULTIPLE WARHEADS, and PROPHET will be on hand signing books and offering up his opinion on all things comic book.

“MULTIPLE WARHEADS features ghosts, magic, and monsters, which doesn’t make it sound much like slice-of-life comics. But the twist is that while Graham enjoys exploring the supernatural and sci-fi elements of the world, the focus is squarely on the characters and their relationships with each other. Wild things do happen, and absurd characters do appear, but if you’re reading MULTIPLE WARHEADS, you’re reading it to see what happens to the cast, in addition to exploring their vibrant world.”

Simon Roy is hot off the release of JAN’S ATOMIC HEART AND OTHER STORIES, a collection of previously hard to track down mini-comics focused on sci-fi and fantasy stories.
