The exhibition starts Monday, October 13 – and we’ll be hosting a Halloween party and mega-jam signing session on Friday, October 31 (Halloween). Don’t miss it!
As part of this year’s Thought Bubble Sequential Art Festival, Orbital Comics is proud to be hosting those ‘Southern Bastards’, Jason Aaron and Jason Latour, for a London-exclusive signing on Wednesday, November 19 from 5-7pm. Hot on the heels of their work on Thor, Wolverine & The X-Men, The Winter Soldier, Men Of Wrath and the aforementioned Southern Bastards, this is sure to be another busy event.
Afterwards, when the store closes at 7.30pm, we will be hosting a very special Directors’ Commentary for Southern Bastards Volume 1 with creators Jason Aaron & Jason Latour. This is a ticketed event and spaces are limited, so allocations may occur. Tickets are free with the purchase of one of the creators’ graphic novels during the signing period (one ticket per book) … Start saving your pennies now!
In addition, we’re very pleased to announce that they’ll be joined for the signing by Image Comics’ creators Ivan Brandon (Drifter, Wolverine, Viking) and Tom Muller (Drifter, Zero). With issue 1 of their hot new series Drifter out from Image Comics the week before, this is the perfect opportunity to get in on another spectacular Image #1 and meet the creators before it sells out!
In conjunction with Lille Comics Festival and Malta Comic Con, Orbital Comics is proud to welcome Gabriel Hardman & Corinna Bechko (Savage Hulk, Star Wars: Legacy, Planet of the Apes, Deep Gravity) to the store for a very special signing on Wednesday, December 3, as part of their European tour. Aside from being two of the loveliest people in comics, they’re also an incredible creative force with a wealth of work behind (and ahead of) them, so don’t miss this rare opportunity to meet them as they fly through the UK between shows!
