From Comics, Graphic novels, Anime, Manga, Sci-fi and Fantasy to Cosplay, Horror, Gaming, Toys, Movies and Television – FAN EXPO Boston, presented by BOSTON COMIC CON celebrates pop-culture fandom.
Appearing all three days will be Michael Cherkas & Larry Hancock, co-creators of the The Silent Invasion, the paranoid cult-classic science fiction mystery of the early days of indie comics. With the first two volumes, Red Shadows and The Great Fear back in print (and available at the show), the upcoming third volume of previously uncollected material and the all-new fourth volume will conclude the epic series of conspiracy and paranoia.
Set against the background of a nightmarish 1950s crawling with communist spies, corrupt FBI agents, McCarthyites, Stalinists, cold warriors, flying saucers, mysterious government organizations, The Silent Invasion weaves a byzantine tale of mystery and deceit as a bewildered investigative reporter Matt Sinkage pursues the truth behind an apparent alien invasion of earth that points to involvement at the highest levels of American government officials.
Larry and Michael will also be participating on the panel, SURVIVING COLLABORATION alongside David & Meredith Finch, Ash Maczko, and Ashley Witter on Sunday, August 18th at 4:00 pm in Room 253A
