As part of the 2010 Free Comic Book Day celebrations, I will be at the two Regina ComicReaders locations in Regina, Saskatchewan, signing copies of my latest release: Acts of Violence, An Anthology of Crime Comics. My comic The Three Princes appears within, but I am also one of the anthology’s creators.
Mike Carey, writer of The Unwritten, Hellblazer, and Lucifer, had this to say about Acts of Violence: “A dark, rich anthology. There are acts of violence in profusion: also addictions, betrayals, uneasy consciences, moral ambiguities, bad choices and inadequate redemptions. Most importantly of all, there are strong creative voices, using the comics medium to do ambitious things.”
Featuring the talents of Toren Atkinson, Ed Brisson, Chad Boudreau, Dino Caruso, Damian Couceiro, Todd Ireland, Kevin Leeson, Manoel Magalhaes, and Marvin Mann and cover art by Fiona Staples, Acts of Violence unveils a roster of new voices in hard-boiled crime comics.
