Godzilla Stomps Big Wow! ComicFest 2014

kenpachiro-satsuma-02Press Release:

Legendary Japanese actor Kenpachiro Satsuma, best known for portraying Godzilla from 1984-1995 (the Heisei era), will be in attendance for this year’s show to share his tales and challenges of portraying the King of Monsters!

Man in the suit legend Kenpachiro Satsuma began his career by by portraying giant monsters like Hedorah and Gigan as they battled Godzilla. In 1984’s RETURN OF GODZILLA, he would land the title role of Godzilla and continue as the King of Monsters for the next 11 years. Being king isn’t easy as Satsuma would often suffer any number of physical ailments due to the intense heat and lack of oxygen in the suit. But it was all worth it as he bravely battled Biollante, King Ghidorah, Mothra, Destoroyah, and many more!

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.
