Retro Rocket Comics is happy to announce we will be having an all-day IN STORE AUTOGRAPH session with A.Shay Hahn & Alfonso Espinos on July 16th, 2016!
A.Shay Hahn is a Toronto based comic artist and illustrator who self publishes three raucous and entertaining series, "The Homeless G-Men", "Battle Rally" and "Crypto Zombic". His comics and drawings have been featured on Inner Space and if you've ever watched the hit TV series "Orphan Black", you've seen his paintings and murals. He's proud to be bringing the recently released wrestling anthology "Kayfabe" to Retro Rocket Comics (a 100+ page book that features some of North America's best indie talent) and "American Bison Short Stories" (if you like Hellboy or the BPRD books, you have got to check it out!) He's recently had work published in IDW Entertainment's "Amazing Forest #6", and is putting together a web comic that is so full of action that you'll probably have an urge to shoot off fireworks after you read it! He'll be bringing his books and special comic packs, prints, sketches and will be drawing all day at the shop. He may even have a few of his highly coveted "King Bat" t-shirts as well!
Alfonso Espinos is no stranger to Retro Rocket regulars, but what you may not know is that he is actively working on a Kickstarter project, "Inside the Panels", a documentary following his journey in creating new independent comics in Canada! He is currently hard at work on many other projects, but will be at the Rocket with his prints, sketch covers, and comics available for sale!
Please mark it on your calendar NOW and don't forget to stop by to talk comics and check out some amazingly talented artists!
