JIM SHOOTER Announced for 2017 Convention Bookings!

There are few people in the world of comics that can claim to have their name in as many comic books as this creator.  There are few people in our world of sequential art that can talk about history and characters and stories,  like this man can. 

For these and many other reasons, we are pleased to announce Jim Shooter as part of Eva Ink Artist Group/Pros & Cons Celebrity Booking, and present him for convention bookings in 2017! 

Here is just a brief recap of credits (if for some reason, you've NEVER read a comic book!):

Jim Shooter

James C. Shooter

Jim Shooter started writing Superman and other titles for DC Comics at the age of 13 in 1965.  He worked his way through high school writing stories, laying out pages and designing covers. 

He was hired by Marvel Comics in 1976 as associate editor and in 1978 became Editor in Chief.  He introduced benefits, royalties and other incentives for creators that attracted a legion of phenomenal talents who, under his oversight, authored a decade of brilliant creativity and unparalleled success.  Jim wrote several notable series including the Avengers and Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars.  He also headed up the creative teams that developed G.I. Joe and Transformers.
