Image Comics: Where Creators Own Action
There’s nothing like the thrill of a well-executed action scene, and no other medium can do what comics can. Ivan Brandon’s DRIFTER, Alex de Campi & Carla Speed McNeil’s NO MERCY, Nick Dragotta’s EAST OF WEST, Matt Hawkins’ IXth GENERATION, and Steve Orlando’s VIRGIL all feature some impressive action. Where’s the line between perfect and gratuitous? Is there a line? More importantly, how do you make entertaining action? Ask the experts.
Friday, October 9
Location: Room 1A21
Image Comics: Where Creators Own Worlds
The beauty of comics is that they can transport you to another place, if you’ll let them. The comics of John Arcudi (RUMBLE), Bryan Edward Hill (POSTAL), Marjorie Liu (MONSTRESS), Declan Shalvey (INJECTION), and Jim Zub (WAYWARD) show us worlds as fantastic as any summer blockbuster, but executed so well that they burn themselves into your memory.
Saturday, October 10
Location: Room 1A24
Image Comics: Where Creators Own Reality
What makes a weird idea “real?” Brian K. Vaughan & Cliff Chiang (PAPER GIRLS), Jonathan Luna & Sarah Vaughn (ALEX + ADA), and Joe Keatinge & Leila del Duca (SHUTTER) make the fantastic into an everyday affair while never losing sight of the fact that stunning readers is part of the magic of comics. Come see what’s so realistic about high-tech love, dark mysteries, and lion-gangsters.

Wes Craig (DEADLY CLASS), Shane Davis (AXCEND), Bob Fingerman (MINIMUM WAGE), Jason Latour (SOUTHERN BASTARDS), Riley Rossmo (RASPUTIN), and Matt Wilson (THE WICKED + THE DIVINE) create some of the best comics around, and have the answers you seek.

Comments Off on IL – God Hates Astronauts Signing
Ryan Browne signs at Challengers Comics on Friday April 12th from 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm!
We’re throwing a party to celebrate the release of GOD HATES ASTRONAUTS: THE COMPLETELY COMPLETE COLLECTION, and unfortunately creator Ryan Browne found out about it, so he’ll be here to sign books and irritate Dal. Beer and wine will be served, which is sure to keep Ryan in a “charming” mood. Attendees will not only be able to get the FIRST copies of the God Hates Astronauts hardcover, but they can get a FREE Challengers exclusive “Ex Libris Challengers” bookplate with each hardcover.
From the creator of “Blast Furnace: Recreational Thief” and “Smoke and Mirrors” comes the ultimate collection of the most outrageous weirdo parody comic on the web, GOD HATES ASTRONAUTS. Imagine a book that is a bizarre mix of “The Venture Brothers”, “Aqua Teen Hunger Force”, “The Tick” and that hilarious Billy Bob Thornton film “The Astronaut Farmer.”
GHA follows the story of a group of incompetent, small-minded, super powered narcissists called “The Power Persons Five” who are hired by NASA to stop all farmers from launching themselves into space in homemade rocket ships. Unfortunately, for NASA, this goal is scarcely even addressed and the book focuses more on extramarital affairs, bank robing owls, big gross swollen heads, ghost cow heads, olde tyme boxers, tigers eating cheeseburgers in the Crab Nebula, buffalo judges and tons of aggressive swearing. Not as much a superhero book as it is a parody of basically everything and a celebration of weird that is jam-packed with references to Robo-Cop and Die Hard.
