Jim Steranko Joins Radical’s Comic-Con Panel and Signing Schedule

July 11th, 2008, LOS ANGELES – Following the recent addition of Yoshitaka Amano to its signing schedule, Radical Publishing is now extremely proud to announce that award winning comic book writer-artist-historian, graphic artist, publisher and film production illustrator Jim Steranko will be at  San Diego Comic-Con 2008 exclusively with Radical Publishing. In addition to signing on Friday and Saturday, Mr. Steranko will  be part of the Radical Publishing Comic-Con panel on Friday, July 25th from 2:30 P.M. to 3:30 P.M. in Room 10.

“I don’t think it gets any bigger than having Jim Steranko along with Yoshitaka Amano on board for Comic-Con 2008” states Radical Publishing’s President and Publisher, Barry Levine. “I’m also excited over the fact that Steranko is part of our Comic-Con panel, and I greatly encourage everyone to attend. We are going to have some big announcements during Comic-Con week in addition to our free raffle and soon-to-be-released signing schedule. “

In addition to providing covers for issue #1 and #2 of Hercules: The Thracian Wars, Steranko designed the Hercules character and provided the title logo. Besides signing issue #1s and #2s, Radical is providing a special sketch cover of Hercules: The Thracian Wars #1 (limited to 500 copies), a limited edition Hercules t-shirt, and a large poster-size print of his cover for Hercules issue #1.

“I’ve been fortunate over the years to have worked for many publishers and been in a position to pick and choose,” says Jim Steranko. “My prime criterion is quality, for which there is no substitute, and that’s one of the key aspects that impressed me about Radical’s production, and then, there’s the material. When they revealed their plan to reinvision Hercules, the quintessential hero, I knew they had to generate a treatment that breathed new life into the character—and that treatment was delivered by Steve Moore. It’s an extraordinary moment in comics history and I’m pleased to have played a small part in it.”

Jim Steranko will be signing on Friday, July 25th and Saturday, July 26th at the Radical Publishing booth.
