Lazarus co-creator and all-around comics legend Michael Lark will be here signing on Wednesday 16th October, 6-7pm, courtesy of The Lakes International Comic Arts Festival!

With a career stretching back almost 30 years, Michael Lark has worked on numerous well-loved series, whether it be the art deco noir of Terminal City (with Mister X creator Dean Motter), early Ed Brubaker crime tale Scene of the Crime, Batman-tangential cop drama Gotham Central (with Greg Rucka, Ed Brubaker, Stefano Gaudiano & Kano), or the Brubaker run of Daredevil that managed to successfully follow in the footsteps of the Bendis/Maleev run without skipping a beat. We also love the Superman / War of the Worlds Elseworlds story he did, but that might be a little more niche for some of you!

His meticulous storytelling, gritty draftsmanship and ability to fully realise a world for the reader have made him a fan favourite, and it’s a rare chance indeed to see him here in the UK: a chance we’re very happy to take advantage of in association with the good folks at The Lakes International Comic Arts Festival!

Taking place this year from the 11th-13th October in the beautiful Lake District town of Kendal, the festival is hosting more than 70 guests this year, including Michael Lark, Becky Cloonan, Garth Ennis and Junko Muzuno! The festival takes over the whole town, with exhibitions in gallery spaces andf high street windows alike. It’s also the perfect excuse to tour around one of the UK’s most beautiful regions! Get all the details here.

But if you can’t make it, don’t miss your chance to meet Michael Lark right here on Wednesday 16th October, 6-7pm! If you can’t make it, we’re taking pre-orders for a signed copy of Lazarus TP Vol 01 on our webstore for mail order or collection. Or you can email us to confirm availability on anything else you’d like signed.
