PREVIEWS: "Civil War II," "Punisher" & More Marvel Comics on Sale June 1, 2016
Start Time: 07:00PM End Time: 10:00PM
Acclaimed comic creators J.G. Jones and John Arcudi will be signing books at West Philadelphia’s LOCUST MOON COMICS on Friday, March 18 from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. Jones is the co-creator and artist of the hit comic book and major motion picture WANTED, and Arcudi is the writer of the sensational graphic novel A GOD SOMEWHERE.
Jones is one of the most sought-after artists in the comic book industry. His work, characterized by a classic pulp elegance combined with a modern graphic flair, has earned Eisner award nods for the best-selling, genre-bending WANTED and his stunning series of covers for DC Comics’ groundbreaking weekly series 52. Most recently, he was the primary artist on Grant Morrison’s definitive FINAL CRISIS epic. Jones is currently working on a five issue miniseries starring, appropriately enough, Doc Savage, the first pulp hero.
John Arcudi, a mainstay of the comics industry, is one of the architects of the HELLBOY line of books from Dark Horse Comics, being the primary writer of B.P.R.D. His early career included work writing for such titles as DARK HORSE PRESENTS, DOOM PATROL, and THUNDERBOLTS for Dark Horse, DC and Marvel before releasing his original graphic novel A GOD SOMEWHERE to rapturous critical praise in 2010. Described by HELLBOY creator Mike Mignola as “the most human take on the superhero story I have ever seen,” Arcudi’s opus, which explores the troubling implications of of superhumans in a realistic social setting, is taking the world of graphic fiction by storm.
