OH – The Brian Michael Bendis Experience

bendis2Brian Michael Bendis appears at the Cleveland Institute of Art on Thursday April 3, 2014 from 5:00PM – 6:30PM!

Press Release:

Brian Michael Bendis (CIA Class of 1991) is an award-winning comics creator, New York Times bestseller and one of the most successful writers working in mainstream comics. He’ll share his wit and wisdom – and maybe even a little career advice – with aspiring graphic novelists and comics lovers in this visiting artist lecture, which is free and open to the public.

Bendis is most recently the writer of All New X-Men and Uncanny X-Men, bringing about a new Renaissance for the X-Men franchise. He also launched a brand-new Guardians Of The Galaxy series as Marvel Comics gears up for the Disney motion picture of the same name. All three books debuted at number one on national sales charts.

Bendis completed nine years at the helm of Marvel’s popular Avengers franchise by writing every issue of the New Avengers, plus debuting the hit books Avengers, Mighty Avengers and Dark Avengers, along with the wildly successful ‘event’ projects Avengers vs X-Men, House of M, Secret War, Secret Invasion, Age of Ultron, and Siege.

Cinematheque presents Checefsky
Make an evening of it: stick around after Bendis’s talk for The Cinematheque’s presentation of The Films of Bruce Checefsky, starting at 6:45pm. Learn about the other side of CIA’s mild-mannered gallery director who, for the past 13 years has moonlighted as a maker of short, independent films that have shown widely around the world.

UK – Uber/Three Signing

uber three

Press Release:

Forbidden Planet are delighted to bring you a signing for the brand new hardcovers of UBER and THREE, both from writer Kieron Gillen! Join Kieron at the London Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, WC2H 8JR, on Friday 11th April from 6 – 7pm!

In UBER, it’s April 24, 1945. The world holds its collective breath as the war is only days away from ending. Russian troops move through Germany to the final objective… Hitler himself. As those around the mad dictator crumble, the much ridiculed threats of the “Wunderwafen” materialise. A new weapon is delivered, one with unstoppable power – a weapon like no other, and with a madman pulling the trigger. The Ubers change the direction of World War II, providing a dark and uncompromising alternative history in a way that you’ve never seen.

In THREE, we return to the world of Ancient Sparta, where three Helot slaves are running for their lives – and pursuing them are three hundred of their Spartan masters. Includes cover gallery, making of material, and annotations. This story takes place during the events of 300.
