Press Release:

Here’s a little something we’ve got going on to coincide with the publication of the long-awaited Infinite Vacation hardcover: a signing with writer Nick Spencer and artist Christian Ward!

From the Image website:

“WELCOME TO THE INFINITE VACATION, WHERE CHANGING YOUR LIFE IS ALWAYS JUST A CLICK AWAY! Mark lives in a world where alternate realities are up for sale, and buying and trading your way through unlimited variations of yourself is as commonplace as checking your email or updating your status. But when other ‘hims’ start dying suddenly and he meets a mysterious girl who wants nothing to do with ‘life-changing,’ he’ll learn the truth about the universe he stumbles through, and what happens when your vacation turns on you.”

It’s happening here at Gosh! on the 29th of June, from 2 to 4 pm. Plus, we’ve got a lovely shop-exclusive bookplate to go with it, limited to 200 copies and at no extra cost.

The hardcover has a tentative release date of the 19th of June.

With the announcement of the upcoming Cloak & Dagger series from Marvel, his current work on Iron Man 2.0 and Secret Avengers for the publisher, wrapping up his arc on DC’s T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents and his creator-owned properties, Morning Glories and Infinite Vacation from Image, Spencer is really making his mark on the industry!

After wrapping his 22-issue run on Supergirl with writer Sterling Gates, artist Jamal Igle recently took over the art duties for Zatanna, DC’s Mistress of Magic, with March’s issue #9. Returning for another year, Igle is a fan-favorite in Baltimore!

“Baltimore Comic-Con has quickly become one of my favorite shows to attend,” said Igle. “The fans are fantastic and the show crew really goes out of their way to create a friendly, family-oriented, fun and accessible convention.”

J.G. Jones, best known for the artwork that has graced the covers of such books as Wanted, 52, and Final Crisis, began taking over writing duties this month for DC Comics’ Doc Savage. In addition to the writing, Jones continues to provide stunning cover art for the pulp hero’s monthly adventures, as well as art of the backup features in DC Universe Legacies.

Artist Cliff Chiang also joins us for this year’s show! Recently, Cliff has worked with musician Neil Young on the original graphic novel Greendale for DC’s Vertigo imprint, and his previous work includes runs on Batman, Green Arrow & Black Canary and Wonder Woman.

“We’re very excited to be announcing new guests for this year’s show,” said Marc Nathan, promoter of the Baltimore Comic-Con. “These creators are among the hottest talent working in comics today and each one of them adds a diversity of style to our growing guest list.”

Spencer, Igle, Jones, and Chiang join the list of confirmed guests including: Jason Aaron (Scalped, PunisherMAX); Charlie Adlard (The Walking Dead); Frank Cho (Jungle Girl, Hulk); David Finch (Brightest Day, Batman: The Dark Knight); Ron Frenz (Spider-Girl); Mike Grell (Action Comics, The Pilgrim); Barry Kitson (Secret Invasion, Amazing Spider-Man); David Petersen (Mouse Guard); Brandon Peterson (Ultimate Vision, Strange); and Stan Sakai (Usagi Yojimbo).
