Wednesday, December 15th, 2021 - We are incredibly excited to welcome celebrated comic artist and British Fantasy Award winner STEPHANIE HANS for her first Challengers signing!
For over a decade, French artist Stephanie Hans has been one of the most celebrated cover artists in the comics industry. Her art has graced the covers of series including (alphabetically) Batman, Black Bolt, Black Widow, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Captain Marvel, The Eternals, Ironheart, Journey Into Mystery, The Mighty Thor, Ms. Marvel, Red Sonja, The Wicked + The Divine, Wonder Woman, and X-Men. Which is to say: whatever your favorite comic is, Stephanie probably did a cover for it and it probably knocked your socks off.
In 2018 Stephanie co-created the Image Comics series DIE with frequent collaborator Kieron Gillen. The series (which just concluded) was the first monthly comic to feature Stephanie’s lush and evocative interior art as well as covers. DIE went on to be nominated for two Hugo Awards and won the 2021 British Fantasy Award for Best Comic/Graphic Novel.
Stephanie Hans will be signing at Challengers on Wednesday, December 15th from 11:00am to 1:00pm. Stephanie lives in France, so this is a rare occasion to see her in Chicago!! We will have limited copies available of her King Conan #1 variant cover debuting that day as well as copies of all four volumes of the DIE series.
