ON – Old Man Hawkeye Signing

Press Release:

Paradise Comics is proud to present a signing with writer Ethan Sacks on Thursday, February 15th 2018 from 5:00 – 7:00 PM.

Ethan is the writer of Marvel’s Old Man Hawkeye, with art by Marco Checchetto. Follow an aged Clint Barton on his quest for vengeance in a new series that returns us to a world ruled by Super Villains first visited in Old Man Logan.

Over twenty years at the New York Daily News, Ethan Sacks covered movies, television, comic books and geek culture. He’s profiled a who’s who of Hollywood personalities from Affleck to Ziyi Zhang, traveled to New Zealand to be filmed with performance capture technology, and broke the story of Marvel Comics’ decision to kill off Captain America, a scoop that was picked up by more than 4,000 outlets around the world. But eventually everyone has to grow up—so, now he writes comic books for Marvel like a real adult.

Previously for Marvel Ethan has worked on Secret Empire: Brave New World.

Copies of both the first and second issues of Old Man Hawkeye will be available at the store. Don’t miss this chance to meet and get your book signed by this up and coming writer at Marvel!

A CGC Signature Series will also be available .

Trying to make a living anyway he can, the former Hawkeye is confronted with a startling discovery; he’s slowly going blind. With time running short, Clint realizes there’s only one thing left for him in this world, and that’s to get revenge for his fallen comrades. Rising star Ethan Sacks and artist Marco Checchetto take you back to the Wastelands in a story set five years prior to the beginning of the now-classic Old Man Logan as the world’s greatest marksman sets his sights on surviving.

Stan Lee Returns to Silicon Valley Comic Con 2018

The man, the myth, the legend. Making his grand return to Silicon Valley Comic Con we are very excited to announce our first guest… STAN LEE!

Stan Lee is an American comic-book writer, editor, and publisher, who was formerly executive vice president and publisher of Marvel Comics.

Lee co-created Spider-Man, the Avengers, Black Panther,  the Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, Daredevil, Doctor Strange, the Fantastic Four, Thor, the X-Men, and many other fictional characters, introducing a thoroughly shared universe into superhero comic books. In addition, he challenged the comics’ industry’s censorship organization, the Comics Code Authority, indirectly leading to it updating its policies. Lee subsequently led the expansion of Marvel Comics from a small division of a publishing house to a large multimedia corporation.

He has had cameo appearances in many Marvel film and television projects. A few of these appearances are self-aware and sometimes reference Lee’s involvement in the creation of certain characters.

On 16 July 2017, Lee was named a Disney Legend, a hall of fame program that recognizes individuals who have made an extraordinary and integral contribution to The Walt Disney Company.

Other guests for the 2018 convention include: Sean Astin, Jewel Staite, Matthew Lewis, Jim Shooter, Simon Bisley, Coop, Glenn Fabry, Andy Weir
