Eric Powell signing at Comic Book Ink

Tacoma, Washington's multiple Einser Award Nominated store, COMIC BOOK INK, is proud to announce that it will host the MULTIPLE EISNER AWARD WINNING Artist and Writer ERIC POWELL for a signing on SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 17th, 2007 from 1:00pm until 4:00PM! It's all part of the shop's FIVE YEAR ANNIVERSARY Series of SPECTACULAR SIGNINGS that began with the INDEPENDENTS DAY II signing on September 29th and continues through the BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS Signing on Friday, November 23rd!

"THE GOON is one of the most inventive characters to break through the ranks of 'heroes' in the last decade," said store owner, JOHN MUNN, "And its creator, ERIC POWELL, infuses every page he creates with his wry humor and a wicked sense of film noir."

ERIC POWELL, hails from somewhere in the far reaches of Lebanon, Tennessee, and is a comic book writer and self-taught artist. In addition to THE GOON, from DARK HORSE COMICS, he has been an illustrator for MARVEL COMICS, his own ALBATROSS EXPLODING FUNNY BOOKS and is current artist on DC's ACTION COMICS. His work in the industry has been recognized with the 2004 EISNER AWARD for BEST SINGLE ISSUE (Dark Horse THE GOON #1) and two 2005 EISNER AWARDS for BEST HUMOR PUBLICATION and BEST CONTINUING SERIES (both for Dark Horse THE GOON). He has also been awarded the 2004 INTERNATIONAL HORROR GUILD AWARD for BEST ILLUSTRATED NARRATIVE. He is also a featured interviewee in the movie INDEPENDENTS.

Mr. Powell has also contributed work on such comics titles as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Hellboy: Weird Tales, Star Wars Tales, The Incredible Hulk, Black Panther, The Avengers, The Hood, MAD Magazine, Devil Dinosaur, Swamp Thing, the Avengers, She-Hulk, the Simpsons, Arkham Asylum: Living Hell and Action Comics.

A great taste of Eric Powell's sense of humor can easily be found on THE GOON's Website and on THE GOON's MySpace Site

"Mr. Powell was one of this year's hosts for the 2007 EISNER AWARD CEREMONY," Munn continued, "He had a room of industry professionals laughing so hard it was not always easy to hear him. Tears...honest tears...were streaming down my face from laughing so hard. His signing is sure to be a great time for one and all!"

ERIC POWELL is the third in a series of signings that COMIC BOOK INK is hosting as part of their FIVE YEAR ANNIVERSARY. It began with their INDEPENDENTS DAY II signing in September, BRIAN REED in October...continues with BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS on Friday, November 23rd and a special, surprise guest, in December.
