Jeff Lemire is in town for the Thought Bubble festival, and we’ve been able to nab him for a signing here from 6-7pm on Thursday the 3rd November!
From his work for hire with Marvel, DC and Valiant to his new series from Image & Dark Horse, Jeff is a man who has been firing on all cylinders for years now.
First coming to our attention with the masterful Tales of Essex County, we’ve followed his career eagerly from his landmark Vertigo series Sweet Tooth, through his superhero work across the publishing spectrum, and now in his hit Image series Descender (with Dustin Nguyen) and of course Black Hammer, his collaboration with Dean Ormston, from Dark Horse.
Black Hammer is one of our favourite new series of the year. The series opens on a group of superheroes who are apparently in hiding in a small mid-western town after having saved the world decades ago. But all is not as it seems, and as the series unfolds we are slowly gaining insight into what their situation really is, and what has put them there in the first place. And of course the greatest mystery of all, what was the fate of the one hero who isn’t now among their number? What happened to Black Hammer?
And of course in the near future (sadly after our signing) we’ll be seeing AD: After Death, Lemire’s collaboration as artist with writer Scott Snyder. It’s an experimental mix of comics, prose and illustration released as three oversized squarebound issues, and it looks terrific.
Jeff will be here from 6-7pm on Thursday the 3rd of November, and if you can’t make it then feel free to drop us a line to firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a reservation or mail order. The Facebook event, for updates and announcements is here.
