Jonathan Ross and Ian Churchill will be signing Revenge at our London Megastore on Wednesday 18th March, starting at 6:30 pm.
“If you wrong us, shall we not revenge?” – William Shakespeare
Griffin Franks was a joke in Hollywood. A washed up action-hero. Over the hill. Past it. A has-been. A barely-was. But now he IS The Revenger. He’s a star. His movie’s a hit. His newest wife is hot. He finally has everything he wants. The perfect time for someone to take it all away. Forever. Starting with his face.
Jonathan Ross is not only a national celebrity and TV presenter but a lifelong comics enthusiast – who is building a new following of comic fans with his critically acclaimed work on Turf and America’s Got Powers!
Ian Churchill has worked professionally in the comic book industry for 20 years. Debuting on Marvel’s X-Men titles, he went on to illustrate Cable, Deadpool, The Avengers, Superman, Supergirl, Teen Titans, Red Hulk, Richard Starkings’ Elephantmen and his own group of supernatural heroes The Coven. His creator-owned character Marineman, launched in 2010 and received an Eisner Award nomination for Best New Series 2010 and was shortlisted for the 2012 Stan Lee Excelsior Award.
