Meet writer Sam Humphries at Portland TFAW on Friday, February 19, 2016 from 6:00 to 8:00pm.

Sam will be visiting Portland and signing the first issue of his newest series, Jonesy from BOOM! Studios. Jonesy is the story of a teenager with the power to make anyone fall in love. Anyone. With anything. She’s a cupid in plaid. With a Tumblr. There’s only one catch–it doesn’t work on herself.

Humphries is best known his recent work on Marvel’s Star-Lord and Ultimates comic book series, but rose to fame with his self-published work with Our Love is Real and Sacrifice. The premiere issue of Humphries’ new series will be available for purchase at the event, as well as a selection of his other work. The first 30 people to purchase Jonesy #1 at the event will receive a free lithograph.

Writer Sam Humphries appears at Phat Collectibles on Wednesday, February 4, 2015 at 6:00 PM to promote Marvel’s next galactic event THE BLACK VORTEX!

RSVP on Facebook!

Press Release:

Marvel heads back into space in February 2015 for the next big cosmic event, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY AND X-MEN: THE BLACK VORTEX. As you may guess from the title, the story features the combined forces of the Guardians and the X-Men as well as a clutch of the galaxy’s most heinous villains seeking an object of incalculable worth.

BLACK VORTEX: ALPHA, written by Sam Humphries with art by Ed McGuinness, kicks off the story, which continues into all of Marvel’s cosmic titles including GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, LEGENDARY STAR-LORD, ALL-NEW X-MEN, NOVA, CYCLOPS, CAPTAIN MARVEL and others.

“What happens when one person submits to the Black Vortex and becomes a titan of the cosmos?” asks Guardians of the Galaxy & X-Men: The Black Vortex Alpha writer Sam Humphries in an interview with Marvel.com. “What happens when a whole team does it. Or a whole planet? But against the epic scale, we’re grounding the story in the deeply personal conflict each character will go through just by encountering the Black Vortex.”
