OH – Time & Vine Signings

Thom Zahler will be signing copies of his latest graphic novel, Time & Vine, at Alter Ego Comics from 1:00 – 3:00 PM AND at Vino Bellissimo from 4:00 – 5:30 PM on Saturday, April 14th.

About Time & Vine: The story of a magical winery where every glass takes you back in time to the year the wine was bottled. From the Civil War to the Roaring Twenties to yesterday… it’s all available with just one sip.

Megan is looking for a break from taking care of her Alzheimer’s afflicted mother and finds the ultimate escape when Jack, the owner of the Aeternum Winery, reveals its time-traveling secret to her. Together, they drink their way through history, both the winery’s and their own. In time, Megan learns a family secret that her mother may not even remember and discovers that Jack is keeping one of his own about his late wife.

About Thom Zahler: Thom Zahler is the codename for America’s daring, highly trained special cartooning force. Its purpose: to bring awesome artwork to the world… and also to defend human freedom against Cobra, a ruthless terrorist organization determined to rule the world. But mostly the cartooning thing.

Thom Zahler is a northeast Ohio-based comic book artist and writer. He’s particularly known for his romantic comedy comics. In 2006, he debuted Love and Capes, the superhero romantic comedy about the adventures in love of an ordinary bookstore owner and her accountant boyfriend… who also happens to be the superhero The Crusader. And then in 2014 he introduced readers to Long Distance, a story about two young professionals who meet while stranded at an airport during a snowstorm and decide to date even though they both live in different states.

Currently, he is the writer and artist of the hit Warning Label comic on Line Webtoons, featuring a girl curse by her ex-boyfriend that every guy who asks her out gets the list of what they need to watch out for. And he just completed Time and Vine for IDW, about a magical time-traveling winery.

He is also a frequent writer and artist for IDW’s successful My Little Pony comics.

Zahler has written for the Disney XD cartoon, Spider-Man Web Warriors, where he wrote the first part of the season finale “Contest of Champions.” He is also a frequent contributor to the Topps’ Star Wars card sets. He recently wrote the pilot episode of the “Knights of the Zodiac” Netflix series, set to debut in 2018.

He continues to work as a cartoonist, illustrator and letterer for many companies across the country.

He is a graduate of the Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art and of Lake Catholic High School.

Voltron’s Shiro & Allura Appear at MomoCon 2018

Excited about the Voltron Season 5 premiere on Netflix last week? Join us at MomoCon 2018 to meet Josh Keaton and Kimberly Brooks, the voices of Shiro and Allura!

Kimberly Brooks is an industry proven voiceover dynamo, gaining recognition for her performances on many respected animated shows and interactive video games, and has been performing since she was eight years old. She got her start in animation voiceover on Nickelodeon’s, Rugrats. She can also be heard on Netflix’s reboot of Voltron voicing Princess Allura, on Nickelodeon’s Winx Club voicing Stormy, on Cartoon Network’s Steven Universe as Jasper, on Comedy Central’s South Park as Classi, as well as many other animated shows. Kimberly’s work in interactive video games includes Ashley Williams on the Mass Effect Series. She can also be heard on the Batman: Arkham game series as the ORACLE, as well as the notable roles as Daisy Fitzroy in BioShock Infinite: Burial at Sea and BAD JUJU in the more recent Skylanders: Imaginators. Kimberly will provide the first autograph free at MomoCon.

Josh Keaton was blessed by the gods (well, except Hades) not too long after he won the role of Young Hercules in Disney’s Hercules animated film. But that wasn’t enough to satiate his thirst for being awesome, and thus Josh proceeded to work his way up the ladder of being as many superhero voices as he could. He ended up lending his vocal performances to such iconic heroes as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in The Spectacular Spider-Man, and Hal Jordan in Green Lantern: The Animated Series. He sped his way into things such as Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths and DC Superhero Girls as The Flash, and voiced human Jack Darby, in Transformers: Prime. Recently, Josh decided all that still wasn’t enough for him, he had to have his own giant robot to bring justice to the entire galaxy! And so he stepped into the role of Shiro in the hit Dreamworks series Voltron: Legendary Defender, out now on Netflix. He has also started taking on smaller roles, such as Ant-Man in Avengers: Secret Wars. Yet, despite all of these previous voice over accomplishments and more (Like Revolver Ocelot in Metal Gear Solid 3, King Graham in the King’s Quest revival, Spyro in Skylanders, Valerian Mengsk in Starcraft II, King Anduin Wrynn in World of Warcraft, and Lann in World of Final Fantasy), he just had to give it all up and be the bad guy; namely Norman Osborn in the new animated series Marvel’s Spider-Man.  Josh will provide the first autograph free at MomoCon.
