Kirkman: The Most Bad-Ass Man in Comics?

Robert Kirkman, creator of THE WALKING DEAD, meets world record sword swallower Betty Bloomerz and gets in on the Squidling Brothers Circus Sideshow‘s act during Isotope, iFanboy and Image Comics’ legendary WALKING DEAD Zombie Bar Crawl.

Is Robert the most bad-ass man in comics today? He might be! Watch this video filmed by Ryan Kennedy and you decide…

Kirkman & The Clown

My favorite comic from all of WonderCon this year would have to be this fumetti strip, made by Isotope’s resident photographer Dyami Serna, entitled “Robert Kirkman vs. Jellyboy The Clown.” I think you will love it!

Consisting entirely of live shots from Dyami’s camera of Kirkman’s encounter with the Squidling Bros. Circus Sideshow at the first stop on our WALKING DEAD Zombie Bar Crawl event.

Yes it’s true, WALKING DEAD creator Robert Kirkman not only did indeed staple money to Jellyboy The Clown’s face but he also got right into the act and helped Betty Bloomerz with her world-record sword swallowing act!

More photos to come!

Frank Quitely @ the Isotope!

The Isotope’s Saturday night WonderCon events are the stuff of comic book legend. Each year we bring in the industry’s coolest superstars, throw a huge party designed to rock the infinite Earths, and invite you all to join us. And this year is no exception…

Frank Quitely, the Scottish comics artgod behind some of the best comics of the decade, ALL-STAR SUPERMAN, NEW X-MEN, WE3, and BATMAN & ROBIN, comes to the Isotope for a rare American appearance! Frank will be hanging out, talking comics, meeting fans, and signing autographs all night. We also hear he’s planning to bring in some original artwork to sell too. Awesome!

We wanted to welcome Mister Quitely to SF in the highest of high style so we’re turning things up a notch just for him, and this event will also be featuring world-record sword swallower Betty Bloomerz and the famous Squidling Bros. Circus Sideshow from Philadelphia, PA for a special happy hour show to entertain him and all of you. Yes, you read that right… sword swallowing! Prepare your brain for what you are about to bear witness to by watching this, this, and this.

All night long we’ll also be spotlighting the sweet, backside-shaking tunes by San Francisco’s hottest grandmaster on the wheels of steel, DJ Bearzbub, and an assortment of original cocktails based on Frank’s work created just for this event by Isotope’s own Kirsten Baldock. What could be better?

And don’t forget on Friday night we’re also teaming up with iFanboy for the planet’s first ever WALKING DEAD Bar Crawl with series creator Robert Kirkman. This is going to be one seriously huge WonderCon weekend!
