Moriarty Invades Meltdown Comics

We here at Omnicomic are typically not ones to endorse visiting a meltdown. Lots of chaos, possible death, lasting negative impact. It's possible though that there are some meltdowns that are worth visiting, such as Meltdown Comics in LA. Especially when one of the greatest criminal masterminds is on hand.

Starting at 7 PM today, Moriarty Vol. 1 TPB creators Daniel Corey and Anthony Diecidue will be on hand to sign the freshly released pages combined in a nice softcover presentation. They'll be on hand until 9:30 PM.

If you're unaware of the work and need to know why you should care, the four issue paperback takes place 20 years after the death of Sherlock Holmes and Professor James Moriarty is a lost man. Lost, until MI5 blackmails him into finding Mycroft Holmes, the long lost brother of Sherlock.

Full press release after the jump.


On September 14th, starting at 7:00 P.M., Meltdown Comics will present an autograph signing with Daniel Corey(PROPHET) and Anthony Diecidue (Stan Lee's TIME JUMPER), for the release of MORIARTY VOL1 TP from Image Comics.

MORIARTY VOL1 TP, which collects issues #1-4 of the ongoing series, takes place 20 years after the death of Sherlock Holmes, and Professor James Moriarty is a lost man. MI5 blackmails Moriarty into finding Holmes' long-lost brother, Mycroft, but what at first appears to be a routine case leads to a web of intrigue that involves a psychic box and its creator, a woman from Moriarty's past, as well as a new villain that threatens to be greater than Moriarty ever was! See how Moriarty deals with love, loss, war and death rays in the critically acclaimed Image Comics series MORIARTY.

The MORIARTY autograph event will take place in Los Angeles at Meltdown Comics on September 14th, 2011 from 7:00 to 9:30 P.M. at 7522 Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90046. For more information, please call (323) 851-7223.
