This summer, you can meet the talents behind Omega Comics Presents, the anthology series that Ain’t It Cool News calls “a great chunk of indie fun that has enough mainstream sensibilities to please both mainstream and indie readers.”
Russell Lissau, writer of multiple OCP stories, including the acclaimed “L’ange de Bastogne” from issue four (“a thrilling WWII vampire story”), will be at Quad Cities Anime-Zing! in Davenport, Iowa from June 17 to 19. Lissau will also be at Wizard World Chicago Comic-Con, which hits the Windy City Aug. 11 to 14.
Meanwhile, Canadian writer Dino Caruso, who has contributed a number of OCP comedic shorts, will hold court at the Calgary Comics & Entertainment Expo on June 17, 18 and 19 and at FanExpo Canada in Toronto from Aug. 25 to 28. His most recent contribution, “The Night Shift,” has been hailed as “a derivative and clever play on words and super hero stereotypes.”
If you can’t get to these shows, at least get your hands on the comics — find a store near you, order online, or download a copy!
