“Bad Candy” signing scheduled
Wednesday, October 18, 2023
Welcome Oklahoma comic book creators Robert Henry and Dirk Hooper to sign copies of the Halloween-themed “Bad Candy” comic book! They’ll be at Speeding Bullet Comics, 614 N. Porter Ave. in Norman, Oklahoma, from noon-3 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 28.
Henry is a photographer, artist, and Oklahoma native with comic-book credits including the “Rough Cut” comic book series of the 1990s.
Dirk Hooper is a professional artist, award-winning professional writer, award-winning photographer, audio talent, podcasting producer and host, journalist, mentor, and personal branding and marketing consultant. He’s the cover artist on “Bad Candy”#3.
Henry originally conceived of the pumpkin-headed Halloween character as an “Inktober” sketch in 2015. “Inktober” is a challenge where artists draw a sketch each day of October, often based on a specific prompt.
The series, set in 1982, features the farming family the Lewises, who provide an offering to a spirit known as Bad Candy each October. But when bank robbers on the run take over the Lewis’ house, the offering isn’t made, and trouble ensues.
