Comic signing alert

If you happen to live near or will be in the vicinity of the Harrisburg/York/Lancaster area (i.e. my stomping grounds) this Saturday, you should know that Michael Avon Oeming, artist for the popular "Powers" series, will be signing books at two area stores.

Press release is below. I won't be going (prior committments and all), but if you're a fan of Oeming's work you'll probably want to check this out.

The artist and co-creator of Image Comics' Powers, Michael Avon Oeming, will be visiting Comix Connection-Mechanicsburg, 6200 Carlisle Pike, on Saturday, Jan. 21, from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM and Comix Connection-York. West Manchester Mall, from 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM to autograph his comics, show off his work and chat with fans.

"This will be a great event, showcasing the talent of Michael Avon Oeming," said Ken Ketterer, manager of Comix Connection. "I just love this kind of thing, and so do the fans! Powers is on all of our top 10 lists of great comics."

Mike Oeming is the artist and co-creator of the Eisner-award nominated series, "Powers" with writer Brian Michael Bendis. Mike has also done "Hammer of the Gods," and "Bastard Samurai" series. His current comic work includes writing duties on "Thor: Blood Oath" and "Ares" both from Marvel Comics, "Red Sonja" from Dynamite Entertainment, and "Blood River" from Image Comics in addition to his art chores on "Powers".

Oeming started his career at the tender age of 14 inking books for Innovation Comics. He then went on to ink titles like "Avengers" and "Daredevil" for Marvel Comics.

"When you visit Comix Connection on January 21 you will get to meet and chat with Mike and get a first hand look at his work. Issues of his latest work will be available to have autographed or you can bring your own comics. Don't miss it!"
