The Zone Comic Shop, the shop to which this blog is tied, is proud to announce that Larry Hama will be in the store on Friday, June 29, from 5pm to 9pm. Here is the official announcement from The Zone’s owner, Dan Thompson:
We are proud to announce that comic book legend and all-around nice guy Mr. Larry Hama will be coming to The Zone Comic Shop on Friday June 29th. Mr. Hama is best known for writing nearly the entire Marvel G.I.JOE series and creating all of the characters for the comic and toy line. Mr. Hama had a lengthy run on Wolverine in the 90’s and has written or penciled various other comics throughout his illustrious career. He currently writes IDW’s G.I.JOE A Real American Hero comic (a continuation of the Marvel Comics series). He will be at the Zone from 5PM to 9PM Friday June 29th!!! Larry will also be appearing at the Derby City Comic Con on Saturday June 30th!!!
In another announcement, Dan asks that you not bring more than 5 items to be autographed. Personally, I’m lucky enough that Hama has also written a few Batman comics, and will be having him sign my copy of Detective Comics #736.
