Frank J. Barbiere and Chris Mooneyham sign at Third Eye Comics on Saturday, May 25, 2013 from 11:00 am until 1:00 pm!
FIRST 25 IN LINE RECEIVE A VERY SPECIAL FREE GIFT LIMITED STRICTLY TO THIS EVENT!
Folks — we’re proud to announce this signing for what is sure to be one of the most popular new IMAGE COMICS titles to release this year. The artwork, the storytelling, the premise.. it’s all top notch; we got the same kind of goosebumps reading the previews of this one that we did when we first thumbed through books like PETER PANZERFAUST, MANHATTAN PROJECTS, REVIVAL and BEDLAM. This fantastic new series from rising stars FRANK J. BARBIERE & CHRIS MOONEYHAM kicks off a bold new era of PULP ADVENTURE COMICS!
After a tragic encounter with an artifact known as the DREAMSTONE, infamous treasure hunter FABIAN GRAY was possessed by five literary ghosts and has been granted access to their unique abilities.
Now, we join creators Frank J. Barbiere and Chris Mooneyham for the most exciting debut of 2013 as they introduce you to a unique world full of action, black magic, exotic locales, and literary allusion!
Folks: this book takes so many of our favorite things, and rolls them into one slick package. There’s the occult intrigue of series like HELLBOY and THE SANDMAN. There’s the pulpy treasure hunter aspect that’s not far removed from the UNCHARTED games. There’s the dynamic of a guy carrying around five ghosts with him; and being able to access their unique abilities.
Five Ghosts: the Haunting of Fabian Gray is a MUST-READ, Third Eye Faithful, and we cannot recommend it enough.
We’ll be having a very special release party signing with both Frank and Chris on Saturday May 25th, which is the week that the third issue of FIVE GHOSTS arrives.
Make sure to snag your copies of issues 1 & 2, when the series begins in March, so you can bring them by to get signed by Frank & Chris this May!

Sina Grace, Todd Nauck, and Jason Reeves appear at the Gusford Gallery on Friday May 31, 2013 from 6:00 – 9:00 PM!
Robert Kirkman’s Eisner Award-winning comic book series, The Walking Dead, celebrated its 100th issue last July and the issue became the top-selling comic book of 2012. Last year, Skybound and The Hero Initiative gave the comic industry’s leading artists and visionaries over 100 blank covered issues of The Walking Dead #100 to create a set of remarkable artwork originals to commemorate this special issue of the groundbreaking Skybound/Image Comics series. Regular The Walking Dead series artist Charlie Adlard is among the contributors and now, for the first and last time ever, all 106 of the original sketch covers will be on display together — but for one night only. All of the artists came together to benefit The Hero Initiative, the comic book industry’s non-profit corporation helping comic creators in need. While The Walking Dead continues to break records in every form of media, it all started with the comic book and that will be celebrated at this special gallery show and auction.
To enhance the experience for attendees, The Walking Dead #100 original sketch cover artists Sina Grace (Not My Bag), Todd Nauck (Invincible Universe), and Jason Reeves (F-OO Fighters) will be in attendance to answer questions about their covers.
On Friday, May 31 at GUSFORD | los angeles from 6:00 – 9:00 PM, 7016 Melrose Avenue, Los Angeles, all comic fans are welcome to witness history in the making and in some cases, take a piece of it home. In addition to the once-in-a-lifetime experience of seeing all The Walking Dead #100 original sketch covers together for the first time ever, four covers will also be auctioned to benefit the industry’s favorite charity at the same time. Two covers will be auctioned via eBay during the course of the event, and attendees can bid via their own mobile devices. Another cover will be auctioned live, on-site for attendees. And in an unprecedented move, a fourth cover will be created live that night by artist Todd Nauck for auction during the event. All attendees at the GUSFORD event can watch Nauck, a comic master, live at work during the event as he creates the final and 106th original sketch cover.
The remainder of the covers will be auctioned off via eBay starting June 4.
Amazingly enough, there is no cost to attend this comic lover’s dream event. It’s free and open to the public but if you feel like more celebrating, there will also be a cash bar in place and zombie-styled treats courtesy of event collaborator and neighboring shop, Golden Apple Comics. We want you to save your money to bid on the covers instead of an entrance fee. The event is a gift from GUSFORD | los angeles and Skybound to benefit The Hero Initiative and the fine work they do as the first-ever federally chartered non-profit corporation dedicated to helping comic legends in need and providing a safety net for them.
For information on the event and auction, please visit www.heroinitiative.org or call 626/676-6354. You can always find information for everything related to The Walking Dead at www.Skybound.com and www.TheWalkingDead.com
