UK – Chew Signing

chew7Writer John Layman signs ‘Chew’ Comics and Graphic Novels at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Monday 17th March from 6:00 to 7:00pm!

Tony Chu is a cop with a secret. A weird secret. Tony Chu is Cibopathic, which means he gets psychic impressions from whatever he eats. It also means he’s a hell of a detective, as long as he doesn’t mind nibbling on the corpse of a murder victim to figure out whodunit, and why. It’s a dirty job – and Tony has to eat terrible things in the name of justice. And if that wasn’t bad enough, the government has figured out Tony Chu`s secret. They have plans for him… whether he likes it or not.

John Layman is the creator, writer and letterer of CHEW, the New York Times best-selling, Harvey Award and multi-Eisner Award winning cannibal cop comedy series from Image Comics. Layman was an editor for WildStorm Production and has written or lettered for every major publisher in comics for the last decade and a half. CHEW was the 2011 Eisner winner for Best Continuing Series, and winner of both the Eisner and the Harvey in 2010 for Best New Series. Currently, he’s finishing a run on Detective Comics for DC and working on the upcoming Batman Eternal Weekly. He’s written Aliens, Mars Attacks, Godzilla, Thundercats, Gambit, Scarface, Red Sonja, Marvel Zombies Vs. Army of Darkness, House of M: Fantastic Four, the Marvel Identity Wars Annuals, Stephen Colbert’s Tek Jansen… and a whole lotta other stuff. He loves kitties, Legos and Grand Theft Auto.

OR – Gambit Signing

ja0213Writer James Asmus signs at Things From Another World on Wednesday, February 27, 2013 from 7:00 until 10:00 pm!

RSVP on Facebook!

Press Release:

We’re proud to announce a signing with writer James Asmus (Thief of Thieves) February 27 at the Portland TFAW from 7 to 10 p.m. Writer/performer Asmus will be signing copies of Gambit from Marvel Comics, as well as his new creator-owned series from Image Comics, The End Times of Bram & Ben. Free food and beer (21+ with valid ID) will be provided.

The X-Men’s Ragin’ Cajun returns to a life of crime in Gambit, an action-packed solo series with art by Clay Mann (X-Men Legacy). The End Times of Bram & Ben, Asmus’s hilarious collaboration with Jim Festante and Rem Broo, presents a totally different story: when the Rapture happens, Bram is taken to heaven due to a clerical mistake–only to be immediately returned. Now he and his more level-headed friend Ben must contend with the upcoming Armageddon–not to mention a world full of “sinners.”

James Asmus is a long-time writer, performer, and theater playwright, with works produced in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Seattle, New Orleans, and Portland, Oregon. In addition to Gambit and The End Times of Bram & Ben, he is currently co-writing Thief of Thieves for Image Comics with Robert Kirkman (The Walking Dead). TFAW will have a wide range of Asmus’s comics available for purchase–don’t miss out on this fantastic signing February 27!
