ON – Doonesbury Signing

Garry Trudeau signs for the 40th anniversary celebration of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Doonesbury on  Wednesday December 8th, from 7pm-12am.

Doonesbury was the first comic to be awarded the Pulitzer Prize and has been long regarded as the political touchstone cartoon of its era.

While chronicling his characters’ entanglements and intimacies, Garry Trudeau developed a keen satirical commentary that has ambitiously and relentlessly carved out an indelible record of four decades of American social and political history – angering, irritating, and rebuking every president since Nixon.

Please join us at The World’s Biggest Bookstore for the 40th anniversary celebration of Doonesbury!

Press Release:

Image Comics is proud to announce that SPAWN creator and Image Partner TODD MCFARLANE will appear at Book Expo America (BEA) on Wednesday, May 26, 2010, at the Javits Center in New York City.

Image Comics will be exhibiting with Diamond Book Distributors, booth #4558. McFarlane will be at the booth for an exclusive signing from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday. Complimentary copies of the first HAUNT trade will be available during the signing. Image will also distribute copies of various Image Firsts titles throughout BEA.

“As the comic book culture continues to outgrow its historic roots of the comic book store, a big movement has been made towards book stores,” says McFarlane. “Book stores have now become fertile ground for people like myself, and I need to make sure I get out there, put my best foot forward, in terms of making presentations to the stores and letting retailers know what’s coming out. Now, there’re arguably just as many consumers coming to bookstores for comic product as comic book stores. They’re an extremely important part of our business.”

From budding baseball player to comic book artist extraordinaire to family man, Spawn creator Todd McFarlane has a wealth of experience in the world of entertainment. McFarlane’s road trip to creative autonomy began when he accepted an assignment penciling for Marvel/Epic Comics in March 1984. From there, he worked his way to the top of the talent roster before leaving Marvel to help found Image Comics with six other artists. It was then that Todd introduced his own character, Spawn. In 1994, Todd founded McFarlane Toys. Over the years, the company has become one of the largest, most renowned toy manufacturers in the world.

Don’t miss Todd McFarlane during his one-day-only appearance at BEA on Wednesday, May 26, 2010.
