Jonathan Ross and Ian Churchill will be signing Revenge at our London Megastore on Wednesday 18th March, starting at 6:30 pm.
“If you wrong us, shall we not revenge?” – William Shakespeare
Griffin Franks was a joke in Hollywood. A washed up action-hero. Over the hill. Past it. A has-been. A barely-was. But now he IS The Revenger. He’s a star. His movie’s a hit. His newest wife is hot. He finally has everything he wants. The perfect time for someone to take it all away. Forever. Starting with his face.
Jonathan Ross is not only a national celebrity and TV presenter but a lifelong comics enthusiast – who is building a new following of comic fans with his critically acclaimed work on Turf and America’s Got Powers!
Ian Churchill has worked professionally in the comic book industry for 20 years. Debuting on Marvel’s X-Men titles, he went on to illustrate Cable, Deadpool, The Avengers, Superman, Supergirl, Teen Titans, Red Hulk, Richard Starkings’ Elephantmen and his own group of supernatural heroes The Coven. His creator-owned character Marineman, launched in 2010 and received an Eisner Award nomination for Best New Series 2010 and was shortlisted for the 2012 Stan Lee Excelsior Award.

Join The Comic Bug on Saturday, December 6th from 7:00 – 10:00 pm for a fun, dramatic evening at the Manhattan Beach location for a table read of Frank Darabont’s unfilmed classic INDIANA JONES and the CITY OF THE GODS!
When the script leaked a year or so after INDIANA JONES and the CRYSTAL SKULL was released, hard-core Indy fans were in an uproar that this, in many ways, superior, script wasn’t the one chosen by the powers that be when it came time to roll cameras on the new Indy film.
Witness as some of comic-dom’s greatest talents sit down to chew up the scenery on what might be the most unique event The Comic Bug has ever offered!
and introducing F.C. Brandt as INDIANA JONES!
The man in the hat is back!
