Artist J.K. Woodward signs at Friendly Neighborhood Comics on Saturday, June 16, 2012 12:00pm until 4:00pm!
Woodward collaborated with A. David Lewis on the indie comic Mortal Coils and Michael Colbert on the Digital Webbing Presents series Crazy Mary where he still does covers and promises to do another full story. IDW noticed his work on Crazy Mary and offered him a gig doing a CSI:NY limited series and he followed in short order with a standout story in BOOM! Studios’ Zombie Tales series. When Peter David was re-launching his owner created series Fallen Angel at IDW, James was a natural choice for Peter’s dark world of magic, violence and redemption.
His painted work eventually caught the attention of Marvel editor, Mike Marts who chose him to illustrate X-men Origins:The Beast which was released September 2008.
Woodward illustrates various series for IDW and BOOM! Studios. His next series is the Star Trek / Dr Who crossover.
As a special bonus, anyone purchasing Star Trek / Dr Who will be entered into a free raffle to win an original painting by J.K.!

Midtown Comics Downtown welcomes artist David Mazzucchelli who will be signing his new book Daredevil Born Again: Artist Edition from IDW on Thursday June 28th from 6:00-8:00pm.
David Mazzucchelli’s Daredevil Born Again: Artist’s Edition
Frank Miller (w) David Mazzucchelli (a & c)
Daredevil Born Again. That title strikes a chord with comic fans who know what it means. Fans who know that it represents two of the finest creators at the absolute peaks of their game. David Mazzucchelli’s superhero work had reached an artistic apex when this series was released, and the same is true for Frank Miller’s writing. Together they combined to craft a story of extraordinary impact that is still regarded as a true masterpiece.
Collecting the entire storyline of Born Again, this book will feature the complete issues of Daredevil numbers 227, 228, 229, 230, 231, 232 and 233, plus covers and extras. Each page was personally scanned by Mazzucchelli from his own original art. This is the largest Artist’s Edition yet, weighing in at a rock solid 200 pages of beautiful Mazzucchelli art in the way you’ve always wanted to see it—the next bet thing to holding the actual original art!
What is an Artist’s Edition?
AN ARTIST’S EDITION PRESENTS COMPLETE STORIES WITH EACH PAGE SCANNED FROM THE ACTUAL ORIGINAL ART.
While appearing to be in black & white, each page has been scanned in COLOR to mimic as closely as possible the experience of viewing the actual original art—for example, you are able to clearly see paste-overs, blue pencils in the art, editorial notes, art corrections. Each page is printed the same size as drawn, and the paper selected is as close as possible to the original art board.

The creators of IDW Publishing’s Kill Shakespeare comic book series look to court controversy this month by bringing their take on Shakespeare and his characters to the birth country of the Bard himself this month on a two-week signing and convention tour of England.
“Colonists” Conor McCreery and Anthony Del Col will be appearing at the Bristol Comic Expo as well as the Kapow! Comic Convention this month, along with a number of store signings in London, Manchester, Leeds and Stratford-upon-Avon. Series artist Andy Belanger will be joining the duo for the Kapow! Convention and a London signing. The trip to the U.K. is the final leg of their spring 2012 convention tour, which has seen them make appearances all over North America as well as at the Middle East Film & Comic-Con in Dubai last month.
To prepare for the tour IDW Publishing is proud to announce that they are releasing a fourth printing of KILL SHAKESPEARE VOLUME 1: A SEA OF TROUBLES. Originally released in April, 2010, this is the first half of the series that pits the Bard’s greatest heroes against his most menacing villains in a quest to track down and kill – or save – a wizard by the name of William Shakespeare.
IDW is also proud to announce that Del Col and McCreery have received their second straight Joe Shuster Award nomination for Best Writing in a comic series. The duo is pitted against such talents as Jeff Lemire and Kathryn Immonen in the category.
“We’re quite interested to see what people in England think of our take on the Bard,” says McCreery. “We expect some nay-sayers but we’re eager to show everyone that this project is just as vital a reflection of the Bard’s work as anything coming out of the Globe Theatre or Stratford-on-Avon.”
Kill Shakespeare has been in hot water before after Shakespearean scholar Kimberly Cox denounced the series as “bullshit” and said that “these guys really are helping to kill Shakespeare.” However, the adventure series, which incorporates Hamlet, Juliet, Othello, Richard III, Lady Macbeth, Puck and others, has received high praise from media such as the New York Times, NPR, BBC, CBC and Fangoria. The series has also spawned a 90-minute stage show that debuted in association with Toronto’s acclaimed Soulpepper Theatre company in November of 2011 and is scheduled to tour to various locations across North America this fall.
The current signing schedule includes:
Sat, May 12 – Sun, May 13 – Bristol Comic Expo
Wed, May 16 – Travelling Man (Manchester)
Thu, May 17 – Travelling Man (Leeds) with special guest Becky Cloonan
Fri, May 18 – Forbidden Planet London Megastore with special guests Becky Cloonan, Scott Snyder & more
Sat, May 19 – Sun, May 20 – Kapow! Comic Convention
Published by IDW Publishing, more information about the series can be found at www.killshakespeare.com. The graphic novel is available at all major comic and book stores and digitally through iTunes or ComiXology.
Jim Cheung, Gail Simone, Amanda Conner, Jimmy Palmiotti, Tommy Castillo, Chuck Dixon, Will Quintana, Morry Hollowell, Fierce Comics, Scott Harper, Andrea Dean Van Scoyoc, Dave Myers, and more sign on Saturday May 5, 2012 for Free Comic Book Day!
