Last year’s standing-room-only hot ticket returns — now with even more Biblical bewilderment! God Is Disappointed in You, published by Top Shelf, is the tongue-in-cheek “condensed” version of the Bible you never knew you needed — hilariously modern, but surprisingly authentic — packed with cartoons by Eisner-award-winner Shannon Wheeler (The New Yorker, Too Much Coffee Man). Join him and author Mark Russell (writer of DC Comics’ upcoming Prez) for an hour of unforgettable irreverence, including Q&A, audience sketches, and the hilarious-yet-accurate “ten-minute Bible.” PLUS: a taste of the Audie-nominated audiobook, read by Dr. Venture himself, James Urbaniak (The Venture Bros), and an exclusive announcement about the upcoming sequel!

Meet artists Jock and Dom Reardon Saturday 13 December 2014 from 3:00-5:00 PM at Gnash Comics, hear them talk about their work from 3:30pm, followed by a Q&A session. There will also be an exhibition of their original comic art!
Mark your calendars, comic collectors and art aficionados; two of the most celebrated British illustrators in the business will be making a personal appearance at GNASH Comics and Graphic Novels on Saturday December 13th.
Dom Reardon is a household name for British industry devotees thanks to a lengthy and renowned run with 2000AD, the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic. Few things inspire more fear than the rule of Tharg, but Reardon has been responsible for countless sleepless nights for comic book consumers; in addition to a number of renowned Terror Tales, Reardon pencilled and inked the spine-chilling Caballistics, Inc. for over half a decade. Most recently Reardon has worked alongside fellow Brit Rob Williams in The Ten-Seconders and The Grievous Journey of Ichabod Azrael, in addition to providing illustrations for the feature-length graphic adaptation of Anthony Horowitz’s Raven’s Gate.
Jock, meanwhile, has worked within the mythical metropolises of Mega City One, Gotham and Hollywood since making his breakthrough at the turn of the millennium. In addition to eminent work on classic 2000 AD strips, Jock’s distinctive drawings have graced countless covers and interiors for industry titans DC, Vertigo and Marvel – Hellblazer, The Losers, Batman, Swamp Thing, Wolverine and Daredevil are just a handful of the marquee characters pencilled by the illustrious illustrator. Currently scaring up a storm alongside celebrated Bat-scribe Scott Snyder with the spellbinding Wytches for Image Comics, an audience with Jock is not to be missed.
In addition to hosting an open Q&A for the fortunate attendees of the appearance alongside Reardon, Jock will also be signing copies of Dredd: The Illustrated Script and Visuals. A gorgeous tome that peeks behind the scenes of 2012’s fantastic cinematic chronicle of everyone’s favourite funnybook fascist, for which the Scottish sketcher provided the concept art, the book also provides a unique comic strip adaptation of Alex Garland’s screenplay.
