Sterling Gates, Dorshak Bloch will help us celebrate 18 years!

Saturday, June 11, 2016

Two well-known comic book creators will be helping Speeding Bullet Comics celebrate its 18th anniversary with an event on June 18.

Speeding Bullet Comics, 614 N. Porter Ave., welcomes writer Sterling Gates and writer-artist Dorshak Bloch to the store for an exclusive signing event from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. that Saturday.

“Both creators have strong Oklahoma ties, making it a perfect way to mark the anniversary of our shop, which our family has owned and operated since June of 1998,” said Matthew Price, who owns the store with his wife, Annette. Both owners were born and raised in Oklahoma.

Sterling Gates grew up in Tulsa, before earning a degree in fine arts from the University of Oklahoma and moving to Los Angeles to begin a career writing scripts and screenplays.

Gates is best known for his critically acclaimed run on the “Supergirl” comic book, and many of his stories have inspired episodes of the Supergirl TV series on CBS. Gates’s impact on the character came full circle when DC Comics asked him to write “Adventures of Supergirl,” a comic book based on the show.

Since selling his first story to DC Comics in 2007, Sterling has written titles including “Justice League of America,” “Flash: Season Zero” and “Green Lantern Corps,” among many others.

Alongside writers Geoff Johns, James Robinson, and Greg Rucka, Sterling co-wrote the New York Times best-selling “Superman: New Krypton Saga” graphic novel series. Sterling also scripted the “Man of Steel” prequel comic (based on a story by David S. Goyer, Geoff Johns, and Zack Snyder) and served as writer/producer on the award-winning, independent, live action superhero feature film, The Posthuman Project, which was filmed in Oklahoma.

Writer-artist Dustin Oswald, aka Dorshak Bloch, will be signing his graphic novella “The Bloodied Past of Jingle Heimer SVS.” According to publisher Literati Press, this informal follow-up to The Story of Ivan A. Alexander features the grim, yet hopeful story of a rabbit-done-wrong who sets out on a path of vengeance, then on a path of redemption.

Oswald is also the artist behind the popular Bombs Away line of T-shirts and prints. Many of his images depict Oklahoma themes. His contemporary pop art has made him in-demand in the Oklahoma art scene. Oswald’s Bombs Away art gallery is located at 3003A Paseo Drive in OKC.
