AN EVENING WITH CHRIS CLAREMONT at PHILAMOCA
PhilaMOCA and Locust Moon Comics present AN EVENING WITH CHRIS CLAREMONT featuring the Philadelphia Premiere of the new documentary COMICS IN FOCUS: CHRIS CLAREMONT'S X-MEN.

Chris Claremont will be in attendance for a post-screening Q&A.

During his 17 years writing the X-Men, from 1974 to 1991, Chris Claremont took the title from the brink of cancellation to the best-selling comic of all time, co-creating more iconic characters than any comic-book writer since Stan Lee. Over the course of his run, Claremont remained remarkably fluid, changing with the times. Today, the "X-books" remain a massive franchise that spans comics, movies, video games, and TV. But unlike most such properties, the X-Men we know and love is mostly one man's vision. Claremont's work has inspired writers like Joss Whedon and Matt Fraction and redefined the super-team, creating a set of stories (such as "The Dark Phoenix Saga") that endures decades after original publication.

COMICS IN FOCUS: CHRIS CLAREMONT'S X-MEN takes an in-depth look at Claremont's monumental run. Using high-profile interviews, the film explores the behind-the-scenes development of notable characters like Wolverine, Storm, and Phoenix, as well as the challenges of creating art within a corporate system. The film includes new interviews with many of the biggest players involved, including Claremont, Louise Simonson, Ann Nocenti, Art Adams, and Jim Shooter.

Come celebrate the career of a comic book industry legend!
