MarcGuggenheimMeltdownMARC GUGGENHEIM, (THE CW’S ARROW, STRINGERS), IS VISITING LEGENDARY STORE MELTDOWN COMICS TO SIGN CREATOR-OWNED COMIC: STRINGERS #1.

PORTLAND, OR – Oni Press, Portland’s premier independent comic book publisher, announced today that iconic Los Angeles comic shop Meltdown Comics will be hosting Executive Producer & Writer MARC GUGGENHEIM in their store on August 26th at 7pm.

Guggenheim is the Executive Producer behind the CW’s ARROW, and mastermind behind the recently announced LEGENDS OF TOMORROW. When asked to describe his creator-owned passion project STRINGERS from Oni Press, Guggenheim stated:

STRINGERS is based on a real life profession: Freelance videographers. Those car chases, shootouts, and fires you see on your local news? You can thank these “stringers” for ‘em.

One night in Los Angeles, two struggling stringers capture something on their camera that they shouldn’t have. And now our heroes have to survive an adrenaline-fueled night in Los Angeles with street gangs, crooked cops, and a rival stringer after their heads.”

This action-packed comic will span only five issues, with unique flip covers that form one cohesive panoramic view of Los Angeles, as well as a variant cover for each issue by such notable artists as Robbi Rodriguez (Spider-Gwen) and Tyler Crook (Harrow County).

Located off Sunset Blvd and a few blocks from Hollywood, this comic shop is both the one of the most well-known and accessible shops in Los Angeles! Not a bad spot at all for what will be my second book signing! After doing some much needed re-stocking of my comic book inventory after last week’s signing at Pulp Fiction, I’m ready and excited to be doing my first signing at this fabulous comic shop! For those who couldn’t make my first one due to work, this one will be held on wednesday evening from 7-10 pm for all you hard-working nine-to-fivers! As always, the following items below will be available for purchase at the event:
– Damn Tourists issues 1-2 (Sorry folks, issue 3 just sold out!)
– Cosmic Force issues 1-5
– Cosmic Force Volume One TPB (limited edition)
– The Figure-Of-Speech Mongoose comic strip series 1-4

Come with friends, family, significant others, spouses, dates, potential one-night stands, etc, (sorry, got a little carried away, but I won’t judge) and experience an example of what new comics are all about! And if you can’t make it personally, tell a friend about it!

Legendary Meltdown Comics to Host Signing with Original Creator

LOS ANGELES, CA July 19th, 2015 – Oni Press, Portland’s premier independent comic book publisher, announced today a signing for their Invader Zim comic series at Meltdown Comics with original show and comic series creator Jhonen Vasquez and original show and comic series artist Aaron Alexovich on July 22nd. With issue #1 released on July 8th to a massively positive reception, this will be the first time Jhonen Vasquez and Aaron  Alexovich sign the comic book adaptation of the hit Nickelodeon show outside of convention appearances. The signing will be hosted by Los Angeles’ mecca for all things comic book, comedy, podcasting and pop-culture related, Meltdown Comics.

In 2001 animation fans were introduced to Zim, the diminutive, naïve Irken soldier, assigned to invade Earth to keep him from disrupting his leaders’ plans to expand their empire. Arriving on the unsuspecting planet, he tries to blend in by disguising himself and his malfunctioning robot sidekick GIR as a human boy and his dog. Zim is constantly hounded by his nemesis Dib, who recognizes his alien nature, and Dib’syounger sister Gaz. The show and Vasquez’s iconic characters went on to become cult classics with a following to this day. Fans have been waiting for the return of Zim and GIR; now they have it in the first all-Zim comic book series, part of Nickelodeon’s commitment to bring its beloved classic characters to new audiences.
