His career as a writer of comics – largely for Marvel over the years (and mutant characters in particular) — has made Chris Claremont one of the mainstays of the industry. His initial unbroken 17-year run on The Uncanny X-Men is the stuff of industry legend. His work is lauded for its anti-prejudice themes, and groundbreaking inclusion of minorities as heroes. He is the creator of such iconic characters as Gambit, Mystique, and Rogue just to mention a few.
In addition, he has scripted stories of other seminal characters such as Batman, Superman, The Fantastic Four, and the list goes on.
Plus, he has penned numerous novels including the science fiction “High Frontier” series First Flight, Grounded!, and Sundowner; the fantasy series Shadow Moon, Shadow Dawn, and Shadow Star (co-authored with George Lucas); and the dark fantasy Dragon Moon. Come hear what projects he has planned next for comics, prose, and film.
