“Heroes” artist to visit Tacoma

Tim Sale, the graphic artist whose work is prominently featured on and integral to the hit NBC series “Heroes,” will visit Comic Book Ink at 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 22 to sign and answer questions.

I didn’t watch “Heroes” most of the first season but finally gave in when friends and coworkers wouldn’t shut up about the show. Sale’s work is startling and used very effectively in the strange action series. It’s not very often (if ever?) that an artist’s work has been featured so well on a non-animated television show.

I spoke with Comic Book Ink owner John Munn last week. He’s very excited about getting one of the country’s hottest graphic artists to Tacoma. He says there will be an exclusive print for sale at the signing with proceeds going to the Hero Initiative, a charity that Sale supports.
