To celebrate the release of Joel Meadows’ new book Masters of Comics, we’ll be hosting a signing with three of the incredible artists profiled in the book: Laurence Campbell, Posy Simmonds and Sean Phillips will be here (along with Joel) on Saturday June 15th, 1-2pm!
Similar to his 2008 book Studio Space, Joel has spent time in the studios of some of the most celebrated talents in the comics business, taking photos and conducting interviews.
“Readers are invited into the studio spaces of some of the most popular and prolific comic artists in the world. Through dynamic photography and exclusive interviews, Masters of Comics offers a rare, personal look at these artists' unique creative environments-spaces in which some of the greatest comics and graphic novels of the last fifty years took shape. Curated by Joel Meadows, editor of Tripwire Magazine, the book includes chapters on such legends as Milo Manara, Mike Kaluta, Walter Simonson, and more. The first in a series focusing on artists at work in a variety of mediums and industries, Masters of Comics offers a glimpse "behind the veil," shining new light on the artistic process, as well as providing a wonderful learning tool for aspiring artists wishing to learn from the greats.”
Laurence Campbell, a former 2000AD contributor, is a long-time artist on the Mignolaverse titles, notably now bringing the long-running BPRD saga to its close.
Sean Phillips has carved out a place as one of the preeminent crime storytellers in comics, particularly in his collaborations with writer Ed Brubaker. The new series of Criminal has just recently launched.
Posy Simmonds is the pioneering British graphic novelist behind classics such as Gemma Bovery, Tamara Drewe and her newest title Cassandra Darke.
Laurence, Sean and Posy are all featured in the book and will be appearing with Joel to sign here on Saturday June 15th, 1-2pm!
