The Punisher, X-Factor and Creator of X-Men's Bishop
Whilce looks forward to meeting all his fans in Sydney and Perth in June 2017.
Whilce will conduct a general admission Q&A, and participate in signing and photo sessions on Friday (2:00pm to 5:30pm) in Sydney, and throughout each Saturday (10.30am to 5.30pm) and Sunday (11am to 5pm) in both cities.
Bishop creator Whilce Portacio broke into the comics industry by inking Marvel Comics’ classic book Longshot in 1985. He then proved that he was more than ready to headline as a penciler on The Punisher in 1988.
In 1990, Whilce’s artwork and popularity would reach a new turn with his triumphant work on X-Factor and Uncanny X-Men. He was even given the chance to create his own character for X-Men and created Bishop (who recently headlined the movie X Men: Days of Future Past).
Whilce was also a co-founder of the Image Comics, an American comic book publisher founded in 1992 and created Wetworks.
Whilce’s other works include Heroes Reborn: Iron Man, X-Force, Hulk, Batman Confidential, Authority, Stormwatch, Batman/Superman, Spawn, Non-Humans and Journey Into Mystery.
To date, Whilce has returned working independently for Image, Marvel and DC.
