Brian Michael Bendis @ Comic Book Ink

Q&A Followed By A Signing

Tacoma, Washington's multiple Einser Award Nominated store, COMIC BOOK INK, is proud to announce that it will host the MULTIPLE EISNER AWARD WINNING and #1 WRITER in the COUNTRY BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS for a QUESTION and ANSWER SESSION (5:00pm - 6:00pm) and a SIGNING (6:00pm - 8:00pm) on FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 23rd, 2007! 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!

"Brian Michael Bendis is truly a man of his word," said store owner, JOHN MUNN, "When we moved from our old location to our new home in August of 2005, we asked if he could come for another signing to help let everyone know that we had moved. He sent back a very kind, very supportive e-mail and told us that he really wanted to, but he was so swamped with all of the issues he was writing, the movies that were coming together for him and, above all, spending time his family. He also said that he would try and sign for us as soon as he could. His life has been incredibly busy since then with even MORE projects than ever before, but when we asked if he wanted to join us on Thanksgiving Weekend...He said, 'I'm in!' and then said he wanted to do a Question and Answer Session on TOP of it!"

The very best source for Brian Michael Bendis online would have to be at www.wikipedia.com, but we have tried to post just SOME of the highlights of their articles here:

BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS, who calls Portland, Oregon his home, has won critical acclaim (including FIVE EISNER AWARDS) and is one of the most successful writers working in mainstream comics; for over seven years, Bendis’ books have consistently sat in the top five best sellers on the nationwide comic sales chart.

Bendis first entered the comic world with the "Jinx" line of crime comics in 1995. This line has spawned the graphic novels Goldfish, Fire, Jinx, Torso (with Marc Andreyko), and Total Sell Out. Bendis is writing the film version of Jinx for Universal Pictures with Oscar-winner Charlize Theron attached to star and produce.

Bendis’s other projects include the Harvey, Eisner, and Eagle Award-nominated Powers (with MICHAEL AVON OEMING) originally from Image Comics, now published by Marvel's new creator-owned imprint Icon Comics, and the Hollywood tell-all Fortune and Glory from Oni Press, both of which received an "A" from Entertainment Weekly.

Bendis is one of the premiere architects of Marvel's "Ultimate" line: comics specifically created for the new generation of comic readers. He has written every issue of Ultimate Spider-Man since its best-selling launch, and has also written for Ultimate Fantastic Four, Ultimate X-Men and Ultimate Power as well as every issue of Ultimate Marvel Team-Up and Ultimate Six.

He is also known for his work on Daredevil, Alias / The Pulse, Avengers / New Avengers, New Avengers: Illuminanti (with BRIAN REED) and Mighty Avengers.

Bendis was the co-executive producer and series pilot writer for MainFrame Entertainment’s recent CGI animated Spider-man show, Spider-Man: The New Animated Series that aired on MTV and YTV. Bendis is the recipient of the Cleveland Press "Excellence in Journalism" Award and was named "Best Writer of the Year" by Wizard Magazine and Comic Buyer’s Guide for three consecutive years.

His website www.Jinxworld.com is also home to one of the Internet's leading comic book forums with an incredible array of contributors from the industry and the fans themselves.

"To me...Mr. Bendis can easily be called the 'Stephen King of Comics,'" Munn continued, "The impact that he has made on industry, specifically the Marvel Universe and the Ultimate Marvel Universe, is immeasurable and he has never faltered in the quality of his writing no matter the quantity. He doesn't talk about it, but I know he has helped usher in so many people into the comic book industry and has helped other creators get the attention they deserve. He is is giving up some of his time with his family over the Holidays to spend an evening with us. His generosity honestly knows no bounds."
