What do STEPHEN COLBERT, SCARFACE, MARVEL ZOMBIES and the ARMY of DARKNESS have in common? They are all written by Breakthrough Talent JOHN LAYMAN and we are proud to welcome him to a signing at COMIC BOOK INK, in Tacoma, Washington, on Saturday, March 17th, 2007!

"Mr. John Layman has been a large part of helping to shape the comic book landscape in recent years," said COMIC BOOK INK's owner, JOHN MUNN, "But I believe that this is the year the Mr. Layman firmly establishes himself as one of the biggest names in comics! In March he hits. what I feel is, a Comic Book Trifecta with the books he will have out. With "STEPHEN COLBERT's Tek Jansen," "SCARFACE: SCARRED for LIFE" and "ARMY of DARKNESS vs MARVEL ZOMBIES", he will dominate March, and the months that follow it, with a wide array of titles for a broad audience."

JOHN LAYMAN, who calls WASHINGTON STATE his home, has already amassed quite a history in the comic book industry. He started work as an editor for WILDSTORM, a branch of DC COMICS, but in 2002 he began to write comics full time. Some of, but definitely not all, the comics he has written include such recent titles as "HOUSE of M: FANTASTIC FOUR", "GAMBIT" and "SENTINEL SQUAD O*N*E" for MARVEL COMICS; "PUFFED" for IMAGE COMICS; "ARMAGEDDON and SON" for ONI PRESS; and "RED SONJA", "CLAW" and "XENA" for DYNAMITE ENTERTAINMENT. John Layman has won the admiration of his peers*, and of comic book fans around the world, with his fantastic stories and his strong, humor-filled dialogue.

"This is John Layman's year," Munn continued, "Three titles out at the same time with three different styles of writing? I haven't seen anything like this since BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS in 2004, ROBERT KIRKMAN in 2005 and ED BRUBAKER in 2006...and we've been lucky enough to have had them all at our shop! I am happy to say that the most wonderful part is that Mr. Layman is a comic book fan first**!! His love for the genre is contagious*** and I can't begin to explain how lucky we are to share an afternoon with him at a signing!****

JOHN LAYMAN will be signing his books at Tacoma, Washington's COMIC BOOK INK on SATURDAY, MARCH 17th, 2007 from 2:00pm until 6:00pm. Please contact the shop at (253) 761-4651 for further information.

The best part of that movie is when the Snowman bursts out of a dude's stomach and malevolently quips, "Don't eat the yellow snow!"

Dan Coyle said...

The other best part is when the scientist asks the snowman what it's like to come back from the abyss of death and be reborn, and the snowman's like,

"It feels..."

"Yes?"

"It feels..."

"YES?"

"COOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL!!!"
