Matt Fraction, based in Oregon in the USA, is an Eisner Award-winning comic book writer, currently writing Uncanny X-Men, Thor, and Invincible Iron Man (with art from fellow STGCC guest Salvador Larroca) for Marvel Comics. Fraction started in comics by writing the graphic novels Last of the Independents and The Five Fists of Science. He is internationally known for his Casanova and his Marvel titles beyond Uncanny X-Men, Thor, and Invincible Iron Man include The Punisher War Journal, The Order, The Immortal Iron Fist, and The Sensational Spider-Man. Fraction’s Invincible Iron Man work led to him consulting on the set of the film Iron Man 2.
“The Singapore Toy, Games & Comic Convention is honored to welcome Mr. Matt Fraction,” STGCC Project Director Yeow Hui Leng said. “Matt is one of the most popular writers in the comics world today, and his pen has touched some of its biggest icons. I’m thrilled that fans on the other side of the planet, who have been shaped by Matt’s words will get the opportunity to meet him in person.”
Mr. Fraction will be appearing the first two days of STGCC, conducting autograph sessions with fans and speaking on panels covering both comics as well as the art of writing. Details about Fraction’s schedule — and the full STGCC panel listing — are available at www.singaporetgcc.com
