Aug. 16, 2014: Thief of Thieves Signing

Artist Shawn Martinbrough, known for his acclaimed two-year run illustrating Batman in Detective Comics with writer Greg Rucka and his current best selling work on Thief of Thieves with writer Robert Kirkman, creator of The Walking Dead, will appear at Geppi’s Entertainment Museum (GEM) on Saturday, August 16, 2014, in two sessions from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

From 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., he will give a talk about how he developed his craft and discuss his career in the comics industry. That session will conclude with a question-and-answer period. Then from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. he will be signing in the museum’s gift shop, Geppi’s Comic World. Admission for the talk is free with paid admission for non-museum members and free for museum members, however, reservations are recommended as seating is limited.

Martinbrough’s work, as well as that of many other creators, is currently on display at GEM as part of the widely lauded exhibit Milestones: African Americans in Comics, Pop Culture and Beyond, which runs through December 31, 2014. Among numerous projects, he has garnered praise for his Detective Comics work with Rucka, during which he co-created characters that were featured in the Batman: Gotham Knights animated DVD as a companion to director Christopher Nolan’s trilogy of Batman films.
