Chris Claremont

Chris Claremont

Flame Con is thrilled to welcome Chris Claremont on Sunday, August 21st!

Chris Claremont’s initial unbroken 17-year run on Marvel Comics The Uncanny X-Men is the stuff of industry legend. A NY Times best-selling author and Will Eisner Comics Industry Awards Hall of Fame member, his classic run on Uncanny examined morality in all its guises.

He made Wolverine a household name, and gave progressive treatment to strong, smart female characters like Storm, Rogue, Mystique, Jean Grey and Kitty Pryde in ground-breaking stories that fight prejudice and speak out for inclusivity regardless of race, religion, gender or sexual orientation. He embraced mutants as a metaphor for all who are viewed as outsiders, making the X-Men resonate with queer readers everywhere.

Chris is hard at work on new projects for comics, prose and film. Check out Chris’s website below for eBooks in all formats, new projects and appearance information.
