Jonathan Case: The Creep Signing and Gallery Exhibition
Presented by Things From Another World
Admission: Free to the public
Join local comics artist Jonathan Case as he celebrates his latest work, The Creep. Case will sign his newest release from Dark Horse Comics, The Creep #1, and display his original pages from The Creep, Green River Killer, Dear Creature, and more! Complimentary food and beer (21+ with valid ID) provided.
Periscope Studios artist Jonathan Case won the Best Reality-Based Work Eisner for Green River Killer this year, as well as the Stumptown Awards for Best Artist and Best New Talent for GRK and Dear Creature. Now he teams up with B.P.R.D. writer John Arcudi for The Creep, a noir miniseries starring Oxel Karnhus, a private investigator who is reunited with his college sweetheart via a horrible tragedy. Mike Mignola, who did the cover for The Creep #1, calls it, "A beautiful book and, for my money, no one in comics writes better stories about human beings than John Arcudi."
Case hit the comics scene in a big way with Green River Killer, a haunting tale of notorious serial killer Gary Leon Ridgway, written by Entertainment Weekly writer Jeff Jensen. Case's cult-hit Dear Creature, a monster-pulp-romance, showcases a different side of Case's art and storytelling talent, melding sweetness and sci-fi.
