Brandon Graham & Simon Roy Signing April 19 at 7pm
Mission: Comics welcomes artists Brandon Graham and Simon Roy, partners in the relaunch of PROPHET! All part of the Inkstuds 500 Tour with Robin McConnell. As seen on kickstarter! http://kck.st/1lfyUkt
Brandon Graham well know for his puny books, KING CITY, MULTIPLE WARHEADS and PROPHET will be on hand signing books and offering up his opinion on all things comic book.
"MULTIPLE WARHEADS features ghosts, magic, and monsters, which doesn’t make it sound much like slice-of-life comics. But the twist is that while Graham enjoys exploring the supernatural and sci-fi elements of the world, the focus is squarely on the characters and their relationships with each other. Wild things do happen, and absurd characters do appear, but if you’re reading MULTIPLE WARHEADS, you’re reading it to see what happens to the cast, in addition to exploring their vibrant world."
Simon Roy is hot off the release of JAN’S ATOMIC HEART AND OTHER STORIES, a collection of previously hard to track down mini-comics focused on sci-fi and fantasy stories.
“Jan’s Atomic Heart and Other Stories” collects the critically acclaimed “Jan’s Atomic Heart” with six other early short works; tales that span across time, space, and species. Cut from the same cloth as sci-fi classics like “Bladerunner” and “Ghost in the Shell”, it’s a character-driven story about the intersection between technology and paranoia. Recommended for fans of “BPRD”, 1970s Heavy Metal Magazine, and “Akira”.

However, when the side effects kick in, Ben’s system restarts itself imbuing him with special abilities.

Nov. 2nd 7pm - “Daydreams” - Artwork by MJ Lindo - Opening Reception
"Daydreams" - Artwork by MJ Lindo - Opening Reception
Nov 2nd. 7pm - RSVP on Facebook
MJ Lindo's artworks translate a story thru imagery and subliminal messaging using animals and motifs. They are stories told thru the expressions of her womens faces and thru the suggested motifs used in her paintings. While her art evokes emotion and wonder it often shares insight into a contemporary women's story. It is up to the observer to put the pieces together of the story or emotion. MJ often works with a wooden canvas which ads a sort of strength and dimension to her paintings. It often leaves us with a feeling of transparency in her subjects.
MJ’s women are often seen to have hair that is illustrated in a way that ads movement to her paintings. It is a trait carried thru her work that allows our eyes to move along the painting.
