Other creators include Tommy Lee Edwards, artist of Image Comics’ Turf with talk show host Jonathan Ross and designer of the Denzel Washington film The Book of Eli; Jeremy Bastian, whose comic Cursed Pirate Girl has been featured on BoingBoing.net and raised more than $36,000 for a collected edition on Kickstarter.com; Skottie Young, artist of Marvel Comics’ award-winning adaptations of L. Frank Baum’s original Oz novels, and many more.

Comics legend DAVID LAFUENTE will be signing ULTIMATE COMICS: SPIDER-MAN at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London WC2H 8JR on Thursday 27th May 6 – 7pm.
Almost ten years ago, Ultimate Spider-Man launched the Ultimate line, a reinvention of the Marvel Universe that defied the odds and every expectation. Now, it happens again: this new chapter in the life of the teenaged webslinger picks up in the aftermath of Ultimatum and completely redefines the status quo of Spider-Man for the next generation! This graphic novel, written by Brian Michael Bendis, collects Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #1-6.
Artist David Lafuente was ‘discovered’ at the Dublin City Comic Con, though his professional work dates back to earlier than his presence at Marvel. His Marvel days began in 2007, with the layouts and coloring for Spider-Man Family #2 – then providing the pencils and inks for Kathryn Immonen’s Hellcat mini-series. His collaborated with Brian Michael Bendis on an Ultimate Spider-Man Annual in 2008, and in 2009 was picked as the regular artist for the series’ 2009 relaunch.
David Lafuente signs at Comics & Fantasy in Romford on Saturday 22nd August at 3pm. David is bringing some spares of the 100-copies-limited-edition Ultimate Spider-Man prints I did for the New York Comic Con. He will have them for sale at the signing for £12
