Signing at Floating World Comics in Portland, OR:
Join Matt Fraction, Steve Lieber and Jesse Hamm on Wednesday March 13th to celebrate the release of HAWKEYE VOL. 1 MY LIFE AS A WEAPON TP. We will also have copies of the Hurricane Sandy benefit issue, Hawkeye #7 for sale. 100% of the proceeds from the event will be donated to American Red Cross, to benefit victims of Hurricane Sandy. Hawkeye #7 artists Steve Lieber and Jesse Hamm will draw sketches for fans in exchange for American Red Cross donations.
Writer Matt Fraction was at the center of a special signing appearance for “Hawkeye” #7, autographing copies of the Hurricane Sandy-themed issue and raising money for the American Red Cross.
“The whole book is about the dude who doesn’t have superpowers so it seemed like if we were going to try to do something to help people, that’s the book to do it…hopefully we’ll be able to write some checks and do a little good,” Fraction told CBR during the event about the special issue of the popular Marvel series.
Inspired to write the issue after Hurricane Sandy decimated parts of New York and New Jersey, Fraction is donating his royalties from the issue to the American Red Cross. Though the Portland-based writer was not in New York when Sandy hit, the devastation left in the storm’s wake prompted him to want to do something to help the victims.
“I spent an awful lot of time there and had lived there for business purposes,” Fraction explained. “I realized that not only would I have been evacuated, I would have been under water if I was still there in the place I had been living.”

Things From Another World is proud to announce a signing and gallery reception with Eisner Award-winning artist Jonathan Case, September 12 from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Portland TFAW! 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 by a horrible tragedy. Hellboy creator Mike Mignola 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.
Come pick up your copy of The Creep #1 on release date and get it signed by the artist, and see Jonathan Case’s original pages in person! Copies of Green River Killer and more will also be available for purchase. See you September 12 at the Portland TFAW.
