Matt Wagner will appear on September 18 at 7:00 p.m. in Miller 105.
With an extensive career in comics, Matt Wagner introduced one of comicdom’s most respected creator-owned characters—the mastermind assassin, Grendel. Best known for this epic creation and his other, more personal, allegory, Mage, Wagner has also worked on a variety of established characters. His more recent efforts in this vein have included writing the Dr. Mid-nite mini-series for DC Comics and serving as the regular cover artist on the Kevin Smith-penned relaunch of Green Arrow.
This year sees the 25th anniversary of Grendel, and Wagner is hard at work on a variety of projects to commemorate this significant milestone. His appearance is co-sponsored by the Department of English and Watzek Library Special Collections.
