11.00-12.00 Superheroes: Kathryn & Stuart Immonen
Venue: Shakespeare Centre
John McShane interviews husband and wife team Kathryn & Stuart Immonen about their incredible comic art careers and their imaginative collaborations.
Kathryn has been getting paid to make things up for more than 20 years. She has written stories for both DC and Marvel, but is best known for Journey into Mystery with Valerio Schiti and the sleeper hit mini-series Patsy Walker: Hellcat with David Lafuente.
Kathryn and Stuart’s webcomic Never as Bad as You Think was published in 2009 and Moving Pictures, a story of the theft and commoditization of both art and desire during the Second World War, was released by Top Shelf to wide acclaim in May 2010.
Stuart has a massive worldwide following which includes some of the best-known comic art creators. He has a distinctive aesthetic and brings characters powerfully to life. During his decade-long tenure at DC, in addition to writing and pencilling Adventures of Superman, Stuart illustrated the critically-acclaimed mini-series Superman: Secret Identity. For Marvel, in addition to 2011's Fear Itself event, he has drawn such high-profile series as Ultimate Spider-Man, The Mighty Thor, The Incredible Hulk, The Avengers and the cult favourite Nextwave: Agents of H.A.T.E. After joining forces with Mark Waid to inaugurate Marvel's digital Infinite Comics line, in the Marvel NOW! era, Immonen launched All-New X-Men and All-New Captain America.
We are pleased to welcome Kathryn and Stuart on their special visit to the UK.
