Tomorrow Night! Jeff Parker & Steve Lieber Join Creators Workshop LIVE

Tomorrow night, Tuesday, April 10, 2012 at 9pm Eastern Time, Jeff Parker and Steve Lieber will be joining us for an online Creators Workshop Book Club discussion of Underground published by Image Comics!

Underground follows the story of Park Ranger Wesley Fischer as she tries to save Stillwater Cave--and then has to save herself.

He released his self-published adventure graphic novel The Interman in 2003 to industry acclaim, and soon after began writing regularly for Marvel Comics.

Jeff has written numerous titles for Marvel, including acclaimed runs on Agents of Atlas, X-Men-First Class, Thunderbolts, Hulk, and the Marvel Adventures line.

Parker also created Mysterius The Unfathomable with cartoonist Tom Fowler, published by Wildstorm. He is a founding member of Periscope Studio, the largest studio of freelance comics artists in North America.

As recently announced at Emerald City Comic Con, Jeff's's Portland-based murder mystery webcomic Bucko, on which he collaborates with artist Erika Moen, will be released in print this September by Dark Horse Comics.

Illustrator Steve Lieber is a cartoonist in Portland, Oregon. He was born in Pittsburgh, PA, and studied comic book art at the Joe Kubert School.
