Darin Henry: Sitcomics Seinfeld & Futurama Scribe Reading and Signing New Comics

October 19 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Darin Henry in columbus

Darin Henry, a veteran Hollywood sitcom writer who has written for several Emmy®-winning comedy shows, will be coming to Central Ohio to give a reading and sign copies of Sitcomics, his new family-friendly line of comic books, at World’s Greatest Comics in Westerville on Saturday, October 19th from 12-3pm. Henry, who has written for Jerry Seinfeld, Ellen DeGeneres, Zendaya and the Muppets, is the creator of these new comic book titles including The Blue Baron, Startup, Super ‘Suckers and Z-People. All ages are welcome to attend.

In addition to its diverse cast of superheroes and art by top-tier artists including Ron Frenz (Spider-Man), Sal Buscema (The Avengers), Jeff Shultz (Betty & Veronica) and Tom Richmond (MAD Magazine), Sitcomics’ new Binge Book format gives readers a 64-page, self-contained story for only $3.99 — essentially 3 traditional-sized comic books for the price of one. “People have endless entertainment options but they don’t have endless amounts of time and money,” explains Sitcomics creator Henry, “Comic book publishers keep putting up barriers to new readers by increasing prices and decreasing page counts and only telling a small portion of a story, but with the Binge Book, every issue is a satisfying, triple-sized entertainment experience.”

Henry, who is collaborating one-on-one with independently-owned comic stores across the country, is traveling from Los Angeles to Columbus to work with Jeff Patrick, owner of Westerville’s World’s Greatest Comics, to break down barriers in the comic book market and reach readers on a personal, grassroots level. In these meet-and-greets, comic fans can meet the creator and talk about the process, getting an insider view well ahead of Sitcomics’ international launch in late 2020.

“Introducing new characters typically takes a long time,” says Patrick, “But the humor in Darin’s writing makes these characters instantly feel like you’ve known them for years. And the Binge Book format makes Sitcomics perfect for my weekly customers, my first-time customers, and everyone in between.”

Parents can use the company’s “timeslot” rating system which features a clock on the bottom right of every cover ranging from 7pm to 9pm to know if a Sitcomics title is appropriate for their kids . For example, superhero bodyswap comedy The Blue Baron is rated 8pm, meaning it is appropriate for all-ages, while college vampire comedy Super ‘Suckers is rated 9pm for teens and up.

World’s Greatest Comics is located at 5974 Westerville Road in Westerville. Darin Henry’s appearance will take place from 12pm-3pm on Saturday October 19 with the author reading at 1:30 pm from The Blue Baron, a popular book for families, with its story of a 13-year-old boy who accidentally switches bodies with a 300 year old superhero.
