Tim Vigil Signing At Heroes And Villains In Pleasanton Feb 2nd!


For all the Bay Area Nor-Cal comic fans, comic creator and artist Tim Vigil will be dropping by Heroes And Villains comic shop in downtown Pleasanton to sign and meet fans.

 
Don't know who Tim Vigil is? Tim Vigil made a name for himself as co-creator and artist for the indie smash hit Faust: Love of the Damned comic book series published by Rebel Studios and Avatar Press. This comic series was the first "mature audiences" comic that I ever read. Actually, when the Faust indie comic first came out, I wasn't old enough to buy the book. My brother was, though, and this comic had extremely graphic violence as well as sexual depictions, all in black and white.

My brother became a fan, and it was one of the only comic series he collected. I became a fan of the artwork, which was extremely detailed for the time. Vigil also inked the series along with Tim Tyler.

Vigil, however, gained recognition drawing for the comic book Grips published by Silverwolf Comics back in 1986 before publishing Faust: Love of the Damned with co-creator and writer David Quinn. The follow up to the popular Love of the Damned series was Faust: Book of M, and it was nominated for the 1999 Bram Stoker Award for Best Illustrated Narrative. 

Oh, yes, and the Faust: Love of the Damned comic was adapted into a movie of the same name by Brian Yuzna in 2001. I saw it when it came out, and seriously hope they do a reboot of it. So, if you have the DVD, swing it on over and get it signed.

So if you're a fan and in the Bay Area, drop by and meet this Bay Area comic creator and artist at Heroes And Villains!

Saturday Feb 2nd!

  1. Hey there Mayhem!! I love tim vigil's art and always wondered why he never did any mainstream comics??? I mean after Grips and Faust I can't ever remember seeing any of his stuff other than Omega. He's far too good not to have a huge following of fans and a part in the comic world as we know it. Any chance you can post a list of all his comic book works? Thanks.

    1. Tim Vigil is a highly under-rated comic artist. His work in phenomenal and have no clue why industry never picked up for mainstream work. Kinda sad.
