About Phil Jimenez:
At an early age, Phil Jimenez learned of the world of comics through his love of Star Wars, leading him into Marvel Comics series based on the film. In addition, he was a big fan of the Super Friends and Wonder Woman TV show (soon to become a big fan of her comic version, thanks to George Perez’s post-crisis re-launch).
Attending Manhattan’s School of Visual Arts, Phil developed the skills he needed to become a comic book artist, being picked by Neal Pozner to draw a two-part Cyborg story in Showcase Œ93. A few of Phil’s more well known works are Fairest, Team Titans, Tempest, Guy Gardner: Warrior, Robin, Invisibles, New X-Men, and is very well known for his work on Wonder Woman, JLA/Titans: Technis Imperative, and his many pin-ups (notably: numerous Secret Files and Origins) and group splashes including the Justice League, Legion of Super-Heroes, and DC One-Million. Jimenez is currently at work on a creator-owned DC title for their Vertigo line called “Otherworld.”
Phil would also act as the stand-in for Tobey Maguire during the costume-designing scene in the 2002 Spider-Man feature film. But, in addition to his excellent talent for visual art, Phil is an accomplished writer as well thanks in large part to the man who not only hired him, but also taught him to write, draw, and love passionately, Neal Pozner. Unfortunately, Neal passed away in 1994 after contracting the HIV virus.

James Franco appears at The Strand for a very special evening with Frank Bidart on Friday August 9th from 7:00PM – 8:00PM
Academy Award Nominated Actor James Franco plays with the concept of memoir in his new book A California Childhood, through personal snapshots, sketches, paintings, poems, and stories.
An actor treads the line between reality and fiction every time he plays a part, and
for James Franco, that exploration isn’t limited to the screen—he’s also a visual artist with several exhibitions under his belt as well as the author of the widely praised story collection Palo Alto.
On the evening of August 9th, James will join us in the store for a special conversation and signing with legendary poet and academic Frank Bidart. Aside from the achievement of his many collections, Frank’s 2002 chapbook, Music Like Dirt, is the only chapbook to ever be nominated for the Pulitzer Prize. James and Frank will be speaking on memoir, California, and their own approaches to their written and visual creative endeavors.
Buy a copy of California Childhood or a $25 Strand gift card in order to attend this event. All options admit one person. Please note that payment is required for all online event orders at the time of checkout. This event will be located in our fifth floor loft space, accessible through the elevator bank at 826 Broadway.
