Brandon Graham, Fiona Staples, and Eric Stephenson sign at Gosh! Comics on Friday, the 22nd of November from 5pm till 7pm! They will also appear at the Thought Bubble Festival.
Brandon Graham started out as a graffiti artist and was one of the co-founders of the indie comics collective Meathaus, and to this day draws some of the most vivid and offbeat comics on our shelves – if you haven’t read the Eisner-award-nominated King City or his series Multiple Warheads yet, then you have surely heard of the amazing work he’s done on the Prophet relaunch.
Fiona Staples, having worked on Mystery Society with Steve Niles in the past, has recently risen to comics super stardom with her work on the immensely popular Saga (written by Brian K. Vaughan). She’s designed all the costumes, creatures, settings, and space ships in the epic space opera, as well as doing all the heavily computer game and anime-influenced colouring herself, topping each issue of with beautiful painted covers. If you’re not reading Saga yet, you’ve got to sort that out ASAP – it’s one of the best series on the shelves at the moment.
Eric Stephenson is the Publisher at Image comics, where he has been a mainstay since the early days, and is currently writing the science fiction series Nowhere Men (tagline: “Science is the new Rock and Roll”) with Nate Bellegarde on art duties and Jordie Bellaire as colourist. iFanboy had this to say about issue one: “Through the stellar design and art, Nowhere Men #1 becomes a complete experience that’s unlike anything else on the stands and it off to a great start.” The first collection of Nowhere Men should be out in time for the signing, so we highly recommend picking it up and getting it scribbled in by Stephenson.
Thought Bubble runs from the 17th to the 24th of November in Leeds, with the comic convention itself taking place on the 23rd and the 24th.
