Jason Aaron signs at Gosh Comics on November 15, 2012 from 5:00 – 7:00 pm.
Jason Aaron is a frequent and easy recommendation here at Gosh!: there’s his Native American crime series Scalped from Vertigo to point at, plus all the stuff he’s done on Ghost Rider, Punisher Max, and Wolverine. Most recently he’s been dishing out what our own Nathaniel calls “proper comics” in Wolverine & The X-Men, another oft-recommended title. If you’re a CV-enthusiast you can count his Eisner and Harvey nominations among his credentials too.
In November, he’s coming to England and you’ve got not one but two opportunities to meet him. If you’re the kind of person who thinks it’s alright to go out in nowt but a T-shirt in February, you can catch him in Leeds as part of increasingly brilliant Thought Bubble festival (along with dozens of other top names like Kate Beaton and that). But if you’re staying down south with us, make sure you’re here on the 15th of November at 5pm to get your stuff signed by an American in a beard.
