FANGORIA COMICS will be appearing at Wizard World Chicago this weekend, August 9 thru 12, with a stellar line-up of comics and Hollywood talent!

The crew attending will include: renowned actor Michael Madsen (RESERVOIR DOGS, KILL BILL, and co-creator of Fangoria Comics’ SHIFTER); film producer Patrick Durham (co-creator of SHIFTER; CABIN FEVER 2); actor Ari Lehman (Jason Vorhees of FRIDAY THE 13TH); director Kevin Sean Michaels (VAMPIRA: THE MOVIE); Jesse Blaze Snider (writer of Fangoria Comics’ STRANGELAND: SEVEN SINS; frontman of BAPTiZED BY FiRE); writer/artist Mark Kidwell (creator of BUMP and RECLUSE; co-creator of SHIFTER; writer of Image’s 68); artist Tommy Castillo (THE FOURTH HORSEMAN, BATMAN, SE7EN); Fangoria Comics production manager Jason Moser; Fangoria Comics executive editor Scott Licina; and Fangoria Comics associate editor Troy Brownfield.

The crew will be signing at various times throughout the convention at the FANGORIA COMICS booth, located in the Premier Exhibitor section at Booth 142. Schedules will be posted. Comics, posters, prints and more will be available at the booth as well.

Our marquee event will be two signing sessions with Michael Madsen. We will have a limited convention exclusive 8” x 12” print of Michael Madsen’s project SHIFTER, featuring a special UV coated color side by the BENEATH THE VALLEY OF THE RAGE team of artist Stephen Thompson and colorist Jason Jensen; the flip-side is a glossy black and white take on the same image. Though we will ask that you purchase the $10 piece in order to get Mr. Madsen’s autograph, he will also sign a limited number of other items, including DVD inserts and autograph books, for no additional charge. Mr. Madsen will also, time permitting, pose for photographs with fans for, again, no additional charge.

We should also mention that Michael Madsen is an exclusive guest of Fangoria Comics, and will not be signing at any other booths during the event. You will not be required to obtain a ticket, attend a panel, or do a job for Nice Guy Eddie in order to get in line. Simply show up at the posted time, grab your litho, and hang out with the Fangoria Comics crew.
