Writer Brian K. Vaughan (Saga, Y: The Last Man) and artist Steve Skroce (The Matrix, Doc Frankenstein) appear on Wednesday July 1st to celebrate the release of their new series WE STAND ON GUARD from Image at Meltdown Comics from 7:00 to 9:00 PM.
It’s Canada vs. the U.S.A. in an international signing tour to promote the release of WE STAND ON GUARD #1, writer Brian K. Vaughan’s first new book since SAGA, and a return to comics for legendary Hollywood storyboard artist (and proud Canadian) Steve Skroce.
WE STAND ON GUARD is an action-packed military thriller about a futuristic conflict between Canada and the United States, so in honor of their story, the creators will be appearing together at two different signings, one in each of their home countries.
Ironically enough, Brian and Steve will be enjoying Canada Day, July 1st, in the United States, with an epic release party at the world-famous MELTDOWN COMICS in Los Angeles, CA from 7 to 9pm.
Even more ironically, they’ll then be spending their July 4th in Canada, at the acclaimed GOLDEN AGE COLLECTABLES in Vancouver, B.C. at 1:30pm.
Which signing will be better attended? Nobody knows, but whichever nation loses will be forced to keep Justin Bieber… forever.
Both events are free to the public, and the oversized 40-page first issue of WE STAND ON GUARD is only $2.99! Brian and Steve will be happy to sign whatever readers bring, time and lines permitting.
And if you’d rather not pick a side, Steve and Brian will also be appearing together at this year’s IMAGE EXPO, Thursday, July 2nd, on the relatively neutral ground of San Francisco, CA, at the Yerba Buena Center of the Arts. Tickets available right now at ImageComics.com!

In order to reduce the wait time for our customers we have implemented a “group” system for some very popular guests, meaning the photo op is subdivided into smaller sessions.

Tickets are sold on a first come, first served basis and these photo ops may last up to 2 hours, so please arrive only a few minutes before the time printed on your ticket! Arriving any earlier will not be useful to you as you will be asked to come back for the time on your ticket.
On-site sales will be cash only. You are encouraged to pre-purchase as sessions can sell out and you avoid the ATM line-ups.
LAST DAY FOR REFUNDS: emails that were time stamped no later than midnight EST Sunday, July 26th, 2015. We will be unable to offer refunds after that time unless a guest has to postpone their appearance.

“The Amazing Spider-Man” Artist Ryan Stegman To Appear at Grand Rapids Comic-Con
The Amazing Spider-Man artist Ryan Stegman will be at the Grand Rapids Comic-Con on October 16-18 at the DeVos Place in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Ryan’s first art job was to do covers for Markosia including Starship Troopers and Midnight Kiss. He then found himself at Marvel working as the penciller and inker for the series Magician Apprentice in which he contributed from 2006-2009.
Ryan signed an exclusivity agreement with Marvel in 2010. Ryan did various work for Marvel for titles such as Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Sif, and X-23 before his memorable work on the “Man Hunt” series for She-Hulks.
In 2011, Ryan did work on the Fear Itself: Deadpool series before becoming an artist for The Amazing Spider-Man series as well as assorted off-shoots. Ryan also drew for Superior Spider-Man and Scarlet Spider series during that time, both of which having direct ties to the death of Peter Parker.
Ryan has also contributed to numerous other Marvel series, including Fantastic Four, Avengers Vs. X-Men, and Moon Knight. His most recent work is included in the “Rogue Logan” series for Wolverine.
Ryan is also regular cover artist for both Zenescope Entertainment and BOOM Studios.
“Ryan Stegman is one of the best known artists in the field today,” said event director Mark Hodges. “Ryan unfortunately had to cancel on us last year due to the weather, and we are more than happy to have him back.”
The third Grand Rapids Comic-Con will be held on October 16-18, 2015, at the DeVios Place in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Other artist guests include Green Lantern scribe Ethan Van Sciver, My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic writer Katie Cook, and Green Arrow: The Longbow Hunters artist Mike Grell. For more information go to www.grcomiccon.com.
Writer Dan Slott appears at Comic Book Jones on Saturday June 20th from 3:00 till 7:00 PM to sign Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows and Last Days of Silver Surfer!
