Jimmy Palmiotti is a prolific inker and writer. He gained wide acclaim for his art colaborations as Joe Quesada's inker on such titles as Daredevil, Ninjak and their own creations Painkiller Jane and Ash. As a writer Palmiotti has written a wide variety of titles including: Jonah Hex, Hawkgirl, The Freedom Fighters, Heroes for Hire, Deadpool, The Monolith, Powergirl and many more, often with co-writer Justin Gray.

Amanda Conner has been illustrating comics since the late 80's, providing art for such titles as Vampirella, Gatecrasher, Birds of Prey and the controversial one-shot The Pro, about a super-powered prostitute, with writer Garth Ennis. Most recently she collaborated on a well-received Power Girl series with writers Jimmy Palmiotti & Justin Gray.

They'll be at Gotham Comics from 12.30pm (subject to flight arrival after a gruelling 19 hour flight no less!), signing comics and providing sketches for a small fee. So if you would like to meet these two comic greats without making a round trip to Wellington next weekend, this is your best opportunity!
