Denver Comic Con '15: A Tour Of Avatar's Booth During Epic Signing, Plus Exclusives

Avatar Press has brought the heavy talent to Denver Comic Con, including Max Brooks, Kieron Gillen, Garth Ennis, and Jacen Burrows, all doing signings and panels at the show. At the Avatar booth today, things were heating up for a massive signing of all 4 guests around midday.

Here are some photos of the pre-signing set up:

And here's my first glimpse of the new Alan Moore and Jacen Burrows' HP Lovecraft inspired book Providence in the wild, which releases next Wednesday May 27th elsewhere. Lucky attendees can not only get the DCC exclusive Providence cover, but all the covers for Issue #1 here in advance. This is definite fan frenzy material. Swarming will happen.

And then, when I circled back, the signing had started, and it was like a four-sided convergence of lines to get to each of the guests and their work.

First, Max Brooks:

Then, Kieron Gillen:

Jacen Burrows and Garth Ennis faced the crowds cheerfully:

Jacen chatted with fans about the new book finally out!

And Garth was rather patient with fans of his many, many works wanting to talk about all of them, pretty much.
