It’ll test Bond’s deadly talents to their limits, in order to defeat the assassin and avert certain geopolitical disaster…

UK – Image Comics 25th Anniversary Panel

Jordie Bellaire, Warren Ellis, Kieron Gillen, Jamie McKelvie, Declan Shalvey, and Image Comics Publisher Eric Stephenson appear at Gosh! Comics from 7.30-9pm on Friday the 17th March.

PLEASE NOTE: This is not a signing event. There will not be a signing session before or after the talk. Jordie & Declan will be part of a signing event occurring on Saturday the 18th March.

ABOUT THE CREATORS

Jordie Bellaire is probably the most lauded (and certainly most prolific) colourist working today. You’d be lucky to find a week without one of her books shipping, and even luckier to experience her mastery of palette. Always pushing the boundaries of colour as an integral part of storytelling, her versatility is astounding. Equally impressive has been her outspoken advocacy for inclusiveness in the industry, including initiating the “Comics are for everybody” movement.

Warren Ellis hardly needs an introduction, a man who has repeatedly kicked the stool out from under a complacent industry to bring it standing to attention. He has a masterful hand for reinvention, a keen futurists eye, and an authorial voice that can bring laughter, tears, excitement and horror all with deceptive ease. His current Image titles, Injection and Trees, rank among the best comics work he’s done.

Kieron Gillen is one of the brightest stars in the British comics firmament. Gaining prominence for his work on Phonogram, he has gone from strength to strength through his subsequent work on titles such as Young Avengers (where one could argue he and creative partner Jamie McKelvie set the tone for the increased progressiveness and inclusiveness in the Marvel universe that was to follow), Journey Into Mystery, Uncanny X-Men, Generation Hope, Darth Vader and of course The Wicked + The Divine.

Jamie McKelvie, often in partnership with Kieron, has brought a slick new visual vocabulary to mainstream comics, bringing in influences from the worlds of music and fashion. As well as outstanding artistic stints on Phonogram, Suburban Glamour, Young Avengers and The Wicked + The Divine, Jamie has been a key designer for Marvel, including two of its most iconic modern costume designs: Captain Marvel and Ms Marvel (now, as an icon of the Resist movement, a cultural phenomenon in her own right).

Declan Shalvey brings a weighty, graphic eye to his art, wowing everyone with his striking work on Warren Ellis’ superb Moon Knight run. Starting out in the world of self-publishing, he first caught our eye in the pages of Thunderbolts and has since become a draw in his own right. As well as ongoing work on Ellis’ Injection, he has recently popped up in the pages of All Star Batman, and his covers have been gracing Becky Cloonan’s current Punisher run.

Eric Stephenson has been with Image since its earliest days. Working as Extreme Studios’ editor, he also wrote and co-wrote a number of those early Extreme titles. Continuing to work on in a publishing capacity, he was a key member of the Image team for both Jim Valentino and Erik Larsen’s respective runs as Publisher, before taking the position himself in 2008. Under his directorship, Image has found a new place within the market, positioning itself as the premiere publisher for creator owned work and changing the face of graphic novel sales throughout all channels with titles such as The Walking Dead and Saga. A passionate believer in positive change for the comics business, his annual Image Expo addresses are a must for industry-watchers. He’s also returned to writing, with Nowhere Men and They’re Not Like Us both proving that he’s still more than capable of considerable creative output alongside his publishing duties.

UK – Star Wars: Doctor Aphra #1 Signing

000-star-wars-doctor-aphra-1-cover

Writer Kieron Gillen and artist Kev Walker will be signing the first issue of Star Wars: Doctor Aphra at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Wednesday 7th December at 6:00pm.

Star Wars: Doctor Aphra – Following her time in the clutches of Darth Vader, Doctor Aphra has barely escaped with her life. If he ever learns of her survival, he’ll hunt her to the ends of the galaxy. But for now, it’s time for a return to what she does best.

With the droids 0-0-0 and BT-1 in tow, she’s off in search of rare artifacts from the galactic center to the Outer Rim and everywhere in between. Aphra’s got debts to pay after all. Just as long as she can stay one step ahead of the Empire, some Bounty Hunters and just about everyone else in the galaxy!

Kieron Gillen came to attention as a comic writer with his collaboration with Jamie McKelvie, Phonogram. In 2014 the same partnership managed to find a way to make their brand of pop-comics sell, with the critical and commercial smash, The Wicked + The Divine. He’s worked for publishers including Marvel, Image and Avatar, on books as varied as Iron Man, Uber, THREE, Thor, Journey Into Mystery, Uncanny X-Men and many more. His acclaimed work on Marvel’s Darth Vader introduced the character of Doctor Aphra.

Kev Walker began his career on 2000 AD and Warhammer comics as well as a number of DC and Marvel titles. He is also noted for his illustrations for the collectible card game Magic: The Gathering.
