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!
