Planet Comics is proud to have Paty Cockrum scheduled to appear at Planet Comics on Wednesday August 10th from 2-6pm to sign copies of FUTURIANS
Dave Cockrum created and designed some of the Bronze Age’s greatest costumed heroes. Following his meteoric rise to stardom on DC’s Legion of Superheroes, Dave moved to Marvel and unveiled his characters Nightcrawler, Colossus, Storm, Thunderbird, Mystique, Ms. Marvel and the Black Cat. Along with creative partners Len Wein and Chris Claremont, he breathed life into Wolverine and the X-Men, designed Phoenix, and created the Starjammers. But none of his creations were more colorful or more explosive than his FUTURIANS (Marvel Graphic Novel #9).
The FUTURIANS remained with Dave after he left Marvel and now belong to his widow Paty who has teamed with Aardwolf Publishing to release Dave’s final script and art. And Dave’s professional friends and admirers have joined in to celebrate and help launch this exciting project.
