Guest: Phil Hester
Writer/artist Phil Hester appears at Kowabunga Comics on Saturday, July 2nd at 1:00 PM to celebrate the release of Deathstroke Annual #2!
Phillip Hester has been writing and drawing comics for nearly three decades, beginning while still a student at the University of Iowa. After a toiling in the world of black and white indie comics, he broke into the mainstream with a long run as artist of DC’s Swamp Thing with writer Mark Millar. At nearly the same time he wrote and drew the Eisner Award nominated series The Wretch. In 2001 Phil drew Kevin Smith’s revival of Green Arrow with long time inker Ande Parks, also for DC. He wrote the original graphic novel The Coffin with artist Mike Huddleston, which was optioned for a feature film by James Cameron. At Image Comics he created Firebreather with artist Andy Kuhn, which became an Emmy-winning animated television feature for Cartoon Network.
His work, as both artist and writer, has been featured in hundreds of comics from nearly every major American publisher and includes runs on such titles as The Darkness, Wonder Woman, Ant-Man, Ultimate Marvel Team-Up, Nightwing, Invincible Universe, Batman Beyond, The Flash: Season Zero, The Thrilling Adventure Hour: Beyond Belief, Deathstroke, and his current Image project Mythic with artist John McCrea. Phil lives in rural Iowa with his family.
Come join us this Saturday for Free Comic Book Day!
March 22 marks the twentieth anniversary of Mike Mignola's career-defining release of Hellboy: Seed of Destruction #1. After the character's somewhat humble beginnings in an eight-page feature in Dark Horse's San Diego Comic-Con Comics special, Seed of Destruction would begin the long life of the beloved "beast of the apocalypse."
In December, Dark Horse declared that March 22, 2014, would be Hellboy Day, with events happening in comic shops around the world!
