Comments Off on NY – Free Comic Book Day 2011


Press Release:
Three comic shops on New York’s Long Island, Best Comics in New Hyde Park, The Comic Book Depot in Wantagh, and Fourth World Comics in Smithtown will host Dark Horse Comics writers Jim Shooter (Magnus, Robot Fighter, Doctor Solar, Man of the Atom and Turok, Son of Stone) and J.C. Vaughn (Mighty Samson) for a whirlwind three store signing event on Free Comic Book Day, Saturday, May 7, 2011.

 

Shooter, the former Editor-in-Chief of Marvel Comics and acclaimed writer of The Avengers and the perpetually best selling Marvel Super Heroes: Secret Wars, actually broke into comics at age 13 with DC Comics writing the Legion of Super Heroes (on which he’s had three stints over the years). Since then, he has founded VALIANT, DEFIANT and Broadway Comics, and is now writing multiple titles for Dark Horse.

Our own J.C. Vaughn is best known as the Associate Publisher of Gemstone Publishing, where he works on The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide, Comic Book Marketplace and Scoop. He also authored our Free Comic Book Day entry, The Overstreet Guide To Collecting Comics. In addition to co-writing Mighty Samson with Shooter, his comic book work includes 24 (based on the Fox TV series), Shi (with Billy Tucci), and his creator-owned Vampire, PA, Zombie-Proof, and Bedtime Stories for Impressionable Children.

Shooter and Vaughn will be appearing at Best Comics from noon to 1 PM, at The Comic Book Depot from 2 PM to 3 PM, and at Fourth World Comics from 4 PM to 5 PM.
