Artist Darick Robertson signs at Third Eye Comics on Saturday, August 17, 2013 from 11:00am until 1:00pm!
Third Eye Faithful, we are totally excited to announce one of our biggest signings of the Summer with the arrival of Darick Robertson to Third Eye Comics this August! Darick is the legendary modern comics artist behind instant classics like TRANSMETROPOLITAN, THE BOYS, and HAPPY! He’s done a ton of other excellent work as well, in fact, we’d be here all day if we ran through the list. Let me just say this: we’re honored to have the man as a guest at our store this Summer in anticipation of his brand new creator-owned series, BALLISTIC, from BLACK MASK STUDIOS, the publishers of the recent 12 REASONS TO DIE comic.
What’s Darick’s new project, BALLISTIC, all about? Imagine the cult movie genius of REPO MAN (the ’80s one!) distilled into a modern day heist story. A madcap sci-fi buddy adventure about a wanna-be bank robber and his best friend Gun, a drug-addicted, foul-mouthed, living gun, marks Darick Robertson’s return to the hard sci-fi worldbuilding of his classic TRANSMETROPOLITAN mixed with THE BOYS’ ultra-violence.
Darick will be signing at Third Eye Annapolis from 11AM-1PM on Saturday 8/17. We’ll have plenty of copies of all his works available, including his new series, BALLISTIC!

Darick Robertson signs and sketches at Illusive Comics on Wednesday, December 19, 2012 at 4:00pm.
Illusive Comics & Games is hosting a signing with Darick Robertson on December 19, 2012 from 4:00-8:00pm. Robertson is the artist of Happy!, a new comic mini-series written by Grant Morrison; the first issue of which sold out in September before it hit the stands. He is also the original artist of The Boys, and the artist and co-creator of the long running series Transmetropolitan with Warren Ellis.
Copies of his books will be available for purchase, and attendees will receive a free sketch with purchase. Autographs will be supervised so that signed comics can be submitted to the CGC. The price for a supervised autograph is $38 per book, which includes shipping. Robertson will also be accepting a limited number of commissions.
Happy! is the story of hitman Nick Sax, who finds himself working with a young girl’s imaginary, magical blue horse to save the girl from a pedophiliac Santa Claus. Not your typical Christmas comic, the book has mature themes and images.
Robertson began his career in comics at age 17, and has illustrated hundreds of comics in his more than twenty years in the industry. He has worked on many well-known titles from major comic publishers DC and Marvel, including New Warriors, Justice League, Wolverine, Spider-man, and Fury.
