Brandon Graham, Fiona Staples, and Eric Stephenson sign at Gosh! Comics on Friday, the 22nd of November from 5pm till 7pm! They will also appear at the Thought Bubble Festival.

Brandon Graham started out as a graffiti artist and was one of the co-founders of the indie comics collective Meathaus, and to this day draws some of the most vivid and offbeat comics on our shelves – if you haven’t read the Eisner-award-nominated King City or his series Multiple Warheads yet, then you have surely heard of the amazing work he’s done on the Prophet relaunch.

Fiona Staples, having worked on Mystery Society with Steve Niles in the past, has recently risen to comics super stardom with her work on the immensely popular Saga (written by Brian K. Vaughan). She’s designed all the costumes, creatures, settings, and space ships in the epic space opera, as well as doing all the heavily computer game and anime-influenced colouring herself, topping each issue of with beautiful painted covers. If you’re not reading Saga yet, you’ve got to sort that out ASAP – it’s one of the best series on the shelves at the moment.

Eric Stephenson is the Publisher at Image comics, where he has been a mainstay since the early days, and is currently writing the science fiction series Nowhere Men (tagline: “Science is the new Rock and Roll”) with Nate Bellegarde on art duties and Jordie Bellaire as colourist. iFanboy had this to say about issue one: “Through the stellar design and art, Nowhere Men #1 becomes a complete experience that’s unlike anything else on the stands and it off to a great start.” The first collection of Nowhere Men should be out in time for the signing, so we highly recommend picking it up and getting it scribbled in by Stephenson.

Thought Bubble runs from the 17th to the 24th of November in Leeds, with the comic convention itself taking place on the 23rd and the 24th.

On June 17-18th, New Dimension Comics will host comic book writer and 30 Days of Night creator Steve Niles for a special signing at both their Cranberry Township and West Mifflin Century III Mall locations. The signing event is in celebration of the release of Niles ‘ new project, The Mystery Society #1, already sold out of it’s 1st printing.  New Dimension Comics has commissioned a special limited edition of 1000 copies of this new title as an exclusive version available only at their stores. Normally $11.99, they will be on sale during these events for just $8.  Also on special during these events will be the first volume of the 30 Days of Night Collected Edition, normally $17.99, for just $10.  Of course, Steve Niles will autograph these or any of his other works for free.  New Dimension Comics will provide certificates to authenticate these signatures upon request.

While Steve Niles is best known for his comic-turned-film creation 30 Days of Night, he is a prolific comic book writer whose credits include Batman: Gotham After Midnight, Simon Dark for DC’s Vertigo Comics,  Dawn of the Dead, and many other horror oriented comics.  His adaptations include works by Clive Barker, Richard Matheson and Harlan Ellison.  A full list of his works can be seen at www.steveniles.com.

“Having worked with us on other projects, she was a natural fit for the style and theme of this new release.  Once the photo hit the publisher and Steve, everyone was thrilled and it took off from there,” says Todd McDevitt, owner of the 5-store chain of comic stores.  “It has even lead to another project with her for later in the summer…  ANOTHER photo cover that we will be sponsoring.”

Niles appears at the Cranberry Township (20550 Rt. 19) location for a special after hours event June 17th from 9-10 PM and then in West Mifflin ‘s Century III Mall New Dimension Comics on June 18th from 4-7 and then.  More information is available at www.ndcomics.com or call Todd McDevitt at 412-965-1487.
