Midtown Comics in New York City is proud to announce a signing event with acclaimed comic book writer Matt Fraction, author of some of Marvel Comics’ hottest titles including Invincible Iron Man, The Immortal Iron Fist, Punisher War Journal, and The Uncanny X-Men, just to name a few.
Matt Fraction got his start working on projects such as Last of The Independents (AiT/PlanetLar), 30 Days of Night: Bloodsucker Tales (IDW Publishing) and The Five Fists of Science (Image Comics), before creating the mind-bending spy series Casanova (Image Comics). Along the way he has collaborated with some of the most talented creators in the business, penning scripts for artists like Ben Templesmith, Barry Kitson, Alan Davis, Gabriel BÃ¡, FÃ¡bio Moon, Ariel Olivetti, Salvador Larroca, Terry Dodson, and Greg Land, as well as coauthoring comics with Ed Brubaker.
Mr. Fraction has been nominated for two Eisner awards: one for his work on the Sensational Spider-Man Annual Vol. 2 #1, and another that he shares with Ed Brubaker and David Aja for their work on The Immortal Iron Fist. He’s also won the 2007 Eagle Award for “Favourite Newcomer Writer”.
As an advocate for the decidedly non-mainstream, Mr. Fraction, along with his wife Kelly Sue DeConnick, were co-founders and staff writers for Warren Ellis’ Artbomb.net, a treasured source of alternative comics, graphic novels, news and reviews.
Midtown Comics opened its first store in 1997, and is now the industry’s leading retailer of comic books, graphic novels and Manga, with its online store as well as two landmark NYC locationsÂ in Times Square and GrandÂ Central.
