Eric Heisserer to sign at Speeding Bullet!
Oscar-nominated screenwriter Eric Heisserer, originally from Norman, will sign his comic book “Secret Weapons” from Valiant Entertainment from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Aug. 12 at Speeding Bullet Comics, 614 N Porter Ave. in Norman. Heisserer was nominated for an Academy Award for his adapted screenplay for the science fiction film “The Arrival.”
“We are excited to welcome such a successful Normanite back home to celebrate his success,” said Matthew Price, co-owner of Speeding Bullet Comics.
Heisserer has joined artists Raul Allen and Patricia Martin for the comic-book miniseries “Secret Weapons,” in which the team leader Livewire and her squad of superhuman outcasts come out of hiding, and on to the frontline of the Valiant Universe’s coming battle against the cybernetic hunter called Rex-O.
Characters in “Secret Weapons” have offbeat powers, including being able to talk to birds and making inanimate objects glow. Some of the characters from “Secret Weapons” have their origins in Heisserer’s role-playing past, when he developed characters for a superhero-themed RPG.
Heisserer is also involved as a screenwriter with the planned Valiant Entertainment films “Harbinger” and “Bloodshot.”
