Press Release:

That’s Entertainment of 244 Park Ave., Worcester, MA invites comic books fans to meet widely revered comic book artist and creator Billy Tucci on Friday, June 23rd, 4:30pm to 7:30pm. Best known for his creator-owned comic book Shi, Tucci will be welcoming fans to his table for friendly chat as he signs purchased copies of comics and prints. Attendees may bring items to be signed by the artist, or purchase prints directly from his table. He will also be drawing free head-sketches for kids twelve and under, and taking commissions from adults. This is a free all-ages event; however, some art prints and books may be for mature audiences only.

Working from a one-bedroom apartment in 1994, Billy Tucci self-published the comic property Shi. Shi is a female Japanese warrior character, who also made several crossover appearances in Daredevil, Wolverine, Witchblade, and other popular comic titles. According to Tucci, over 4 million Shi comics have been sold worldwide, along with a vast array of related merchandise, resulting in gross revenues of over 25 million dollars to date. Some may have seen Tucci’s artwork in notable comic book titles such as Marvel’s Heroes for Hire and DC’s Sgt. Rock.

Tucci will be selling prints for $20.00 each (buy two get one free), and Suicide Squad #1 with limited edition variant Tucci covers ($20.00 each). Head shot sketches will be drawn upon request. Head shots are in full color, and can be drawn on sketch covers or art board ($60.00 each).

Marketer Sorana Gatej says, “I remember Tucci’s Shi comic book from when I was just getting into comics back in the 90s. The artwork was beautiful and the character was intriguing. It’s no wonder why the comic is still talked about to this day.”

MA – Insect Man 50th Anniversary Signing

0000000-insect-manPress Release:

Paul Howley, owner and founder of the pop-culture store, That’s Entertainment in Worcester, MA announces the publication of a 50th anniversary edition of his comic book character “Insect Man.” The comic book features a dramatic cover drawn by famed comic artist Gene Colan and it is inked by Colan’s frequent collaborator Tom Palmer. The interior story and art is by local comic book creators Chris Coleman and Andy Fish.

The release of the issue will be celebrated with a signing event at That’s Entertainment on Saturday, February 13th from Noon till 2:00 PM. A signed, limited edition Insect Man print will be available for free on request, one per attendee while supply lasts. The event is free, appropriate for all ages and it is open to the public.

Howley created the Insect Man character during his youth in Bolton, MA, writing and drawing comic book issues that he would then photocopy for his friends beginning in 1966.

“Insect Man had a ring that allowed him to change instantly into any kind of bug. It was a good power for sneaking up on people, disappearing and for flying around,” Howley explains, “But if he needed to just clobber somebody, he’d stay in human form and do his best.”

“One unique aspect of Insect Man was that his base of operations was Worcester, rather than New York, Gotham or Metropolis,” Howley says. “We billed him as ‘Worcester’s Own Superhero.’ We sold copies in the store, and even mailed out copies to subscribers in other states.”

In 1997, comic artist Gene Colan, whom Howley calls “truly one of the greatest of all-time”, agreed to make a special appearance at That’s Entertainment to sketch and sign for awestruck fans. With decades of dynamic art for characters like Batman, Daredevil, The Avengers, Iron Man, Doctor Strange, and Dracula on his resume, Colan was Howley’s personal favorite artist.
