Writer Rob Venditti signs at A Comic Shop on Wednesday, June 5, 2013 at 4:00 pm!

RSVP on Facebook!

Press Release:

New Green Lantern writer, Rob Venditti, will be at A Comic Shop Wednesday June 5th to sign the first issue of his Green Lantern run!

He’s taking over for Geoff Johns with issue #21, and the ring chose him mainly because of his work on Valiant’s X-O Manowar.

You should also check out his Surrogates (which was made into a Bruce Willis movie) and Homeland Directive.

This will be a FREE signing and meet-up in the Geek Easy during the day with (green) food and beer specials and then a Green Lantern themed after party.

The party isn’t going on too late because it’s a Wednesday and Rob and I are going to Heroes Con the next day!

Come by and have a great time with a great guy. You can also warn him not to screw up Green Lantern, he can take it, he can overcome great fear!
