MEDIA, Pa. — Penn State Brandywine will host a multiple Harvey Award-winning writer and creator of graphic novels at 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 30, in the Lion’s Den.

Audience members are encouraged to take part in a Q&A segment, and the first 10 participants will receive a free copy of “Furious” or “The Mice Templar.”

Glass is also a contributor to DC Comics' “Adventures of Superman.” His Marvel Comics credentials include “Thor: Crown Of Fools,” “First Thunder” and “Valkyrie,” as well as adapting “Magician,” “The Riftwar Saga” and “Cirque Du Soleil's Kà.” His special projects include “Thor: Son Of Asgard,” a video game, and “Thor: Valor” for Burger King's Kids Club.
