Speeding Bullet Comics Pop Art and Graphic Novel Signing on Oct. 6!

Monday, October 1, 2018

Meet Michael Garrett of Art by MG and Robert Soul, writer of the Set-In-Tulsa graphic novel, Ruined My Rhythm from noon to 3 p.m. on Oct. 6! Talk art and writing with the creators and get original art and graphic novels signed.

Rob has acted in several musicals, starring in three, including Esther and the Banquets of Susa, for which he co-wrote the music, lyrics, and the book. His non-fiction articles have appeared in Green Country’s PreviewMagazine and TulsaPets. His short fiction, under the pen name ROBERT SOUL, has appeared in Dark and Dangerous Things III.

Here’s a description of “Ruined My Rhythm”:

Maria’s pen and ink sketches always seem to cause things to happen. Six months after a stray bullet from a drive-by kills her mother, she steals from a foster family and leaves town in search of answers and her estranged father.

A snarky, intelligent outsider, Maria is hard, edgy and tough, a combination of Lisbeth Salandar, the angry, volatile main character from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and cynical, witty, coming-of-age Enid Coleslaw from Daniel Clowes‘ Ghost World.

Celebrate 20 years of Speeding Bullet Comics!

Monday, July 9, 2018

Speeding Bullet Comics, 614 N. Porter Ave., will celebrate 20 years of serving the Norman community with an anniversary party on July 14.

Signings, giveaways, sales and more will mark the occasion. Event hours will be from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. July 14 at the shop.

Specials include:

All Day: 20 percent off all back issues!
All Day: Buy two get one free on toys and posters!
Spend $50, get a 20th anniversary T-shirt!
Enter drawings for prizes all day!

“We are so appreciative to the people of Norman for supporting us for 20 years,” said co-owner Matthew Price. “And we’re so honored that local comic readers have chosen to make us part of their lives, in some cases across multiple generations.”

Speeding Bullet hopes that this year’s celebration will be even more than meets the eye.

“Transformers” fans will want to stop by to have a chat with former Marvel Comics assistant editor and letterer Jim Massara, who worked on Marvel Comics version of the title. Massara is also a veteran animator, penciller and inker. He’ll be on hand from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

“We are always glad to celebrate those who have worked for the larger comic publishers who have Oklahoma ties,” co-owner Matthew Price said. “We’re pleased to welcome Jim Massara on this big anniversary for us!”

Comic book writer/artist Jerry Bennett will return to Speeding Bullet Comics for the anniversary. Bennett is one of the artists of the comic-book story “The Grave,” written by Speeding Bullet Comics’ Matthew Price. The pilot film based on the Grave screened at this year’s deadCenter Film Festival in Oklahoma City and is on its way to Comic-Con International in San Diego.

Bennett has worked on sketch cards for many big licenses in recent years, including “Star Wars” and Marvel Comics. Coming up later this year, he will provide sketch cards for an official “Stranger Things” card set. Bennett will appear from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the shop. Bennett also created the art for the official Speeding Bullet Comics 20th anniversary T-shirt.

Kent Clark — in fact, his real name — is also on hand to celebrate 20 years of Speeding Bullet Comics. Clark, whose illustration of “The Grave” was recently featured in Oklahoma Contemporary’s exhibit on local comics, has drawn comic books for Looking Glass Studios, Equinox Comics, Gray Haven Press, and InDELLible Comics. He’s also worked on Marvel Comics characters through the Upper Deck card company. Clark will sign from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on July 14.

Matthew and his wife Annette, both University of Oklahoma graduates, formed Speeding Bullet Comics in 1998, after purchasing the assets of Millennium Books, which itself had followed the Norman location of The Archives chain of stores.

Speeding Bullet Comics is located at 614 N. Porter Ave. in Norman; for more information, call (405) 360-6866 or visit speedingbulletcomics.com. The Facebook event page can be found at https://www.facebook.com/events/209911372968168/

Heisserer was nominated for an Academy Award for his adapted screenplay for the science fiction film “The Arrival.”

“We are excited to welcome such a successful Normanite back home to celebrate his success,” said Matthew Price, co-owner of Speeding Bullet Comics.

Heisserer has joined artists Raul Allen and Patricia Martin for the comic-book miniseries “Secret Weapons,” in which the team leader Livewire and her squad of superhuman outcasts come out of hiding, and on to the frontline of the Valiant Universe’s coming battle against the cybernetic hunter called Rex-O.

Characters in “Secret Weapons” have offbeat powers, including being able to talk to birds and making inanimate objects glow. Some of the characters from “Secret Weapons” have their origins in Heisserer’s role-playing past, when he developed characters for a superhero-themed RPG.

Heisserer is also involved as a screenwriter with the planned Valiant Entertainment films “Harbinger” and “Bloodshot.”

Archie Comics has announced that Norman’s Speeding Bullet Comics, 614 N Porter Ave., will have an exclusive cover for the new “Josie and the Pussycats” #1, on sale Sept. 28. Jessica Garvey is the artist for the cover.

Garvey is an Oklahoma City-based writer/artist who also works at Speeding Bullet Comics.

Garvey created the comic “It Did Happen” and is the co-creator of the webcomic “Game Knights.”

“It was an honor to illustrate these classic characters for my favorite comic shop!” Garvey said.

Mike Kennedy signing on Aug. 26!

Tuesday, August 23, 2016

“Celtic Knights” artist Mike Kennedy will return to Oklahoma with his “Celtic Knights Coloring Book”! You can check out other issues and the collection of “Celtic Knights” at the event as well! In the series, when 90% of the Superhero population of the world is killed or forced into hiding it’s down to the last heroes you’d want who have to save the world.

The signing will be from 4 to 7 p.m. on Aug. 26 at Speeding Bullet Comics, 614 N. Porter Ave. in Norman.

“Looking forward to being back at Speeding Bullet to sign books, sketch and talk comics with just about anybody who’ll listen!” Kennedy said. “So come out from 4-7 and let’s nerd out!”

Also set to appear is Scott Cosby, a cover artist, colorist, and publicist for Cremona Publishing, which publishes Celtic Knights.

In “Celtic Knights,” 90 percent of the world’s superheroes have been wiped out by supervillains.

Trying to protect themselves, “the governments are starting to gather their own superteams,” Kennedy said in a previous interview with The Oklahoman. “In Ireland, where the story takes place, they’re pretty much the dregs of the superhero community.”

Sterling Gates, Dorshak Bloch will help us celebrate 18 years!

Saturday, June 11, 2016

Two well-known comic book creators will be helping Speeding Bullet Comics celebrate its 18th anniversary with an event on June 18.

Speeding Bullet Comics, 614 N. Porter Ave., welcomes writer Sterling Gates and writer-artist Dorshak Bloch to the store for an exclusive signing event from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. that Saturday.

“Both creators have strong Oklahoma ties, making it a perfect way to mark the anniversary of our shop, which our family has owned and operated since June of 1998,” said Matthew Price, who owns the store with his wife, Annette. Both owners were born and raised in Oklahoma.

Sterling Gates grew up in Tulsa, before earning a degree in fine arts from the University of Oklahoma and moving to Los Angeles to begin a career writing scripts and screenplays.

Gates is best known for his critically acclaimed run on the “Supergirl” comic book, and many of his stories have inspired episodes of the Supergirl TV series on CBS. Gates’s impact on the character came full circle when DC Comics asked him to write “Adventures of Supergirl,” a comic book based on the show.

Since selling his first story to DC Comics in 2007, Sterling has written titles including “Justice League of America,” “Flash: Season Zero” and “Green Lantern Corps,” among many others.

Alongside writers Geoff Johns, James Robinson, and Greg Rucka, Sterling co-wrote the New York Times best-selling “Superman: New Krypton Saga” graphic novel series. Sterling also scripted the “Man of Steel” prequel comic (based on a story by David S. Goyer, Geoff Johns, and Zack Snyder) and served as writer/producer on the award-winning, independent, live action superhero feature film, The Posthuman Project, which was filmed in Oklahoma.

Writer-artist Dustin Oswald, aka Dorshak Bloch, will be signing his graphic novella “The Bloodied Past of Jingle Heimer SVS.” According to publisher Literati Press, this informal follow-up to The Story of Ivan A. Alexander features the grim, yet hopeful story of a rabbit-done-wrong who sets out on a path of vengeance, then on a path of redemption.

Oswald is also the artist behind the popular Bombs Away line of T-shirts and prints. Many of his images depict Oklahoma themes. His contemporary pop art has made him in-demand in the Oklahoma art scene. Oswald’s Bombs Away art gallery is located at 3003A Paseo Drive in OKC.
