    Con Artist Alley: The Saga of Rob Granito

    March 28, 2011 by  
    Filed under Comic Books, Convention News, Florida, New Jersey

    Rob Granito

    Since Thursday, when Bleeding Cool posted the article “Who On Earth is Rob Granito?“, the internet has been buzzing with discussion of convention staple Rob Granito, called out for swiping artwork done by other artists and making false claims about his credits in the comic book and animation industries. Heightening the attention this received was the fact that Rob was attending the MegaCon convention in Orlando this past weekend as a “Featured Artist, ” and many waited with anticipation online to see if Rob would show up, and if so, would be confronted about all this and possibly tossed out of the convention. While I believe Rob did make it through the convention (I saw him myself there on Saturday), he was indeed confronted by such attendees as artist Ethan Van Sciver and writer Mark Waid. On YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter, Rob became a hot topic of conversation, and people’s awareness of him has increased tenfold, but not in a way he would have desired, I’m sure.

    Rob’s artwork has been exposed as a series of typically poorly-done swipes of other artists. That in and of itself could be a reason for condemnation, but how Rob made things much worse for himself was by inflating his published credits, claiming to work on various comics and animated series, when no one has been able to confirm any of his claims. The latest allegations against him include him paying other artists for commissions that he in turn sold at conventions, claiming that he was the artist of them.

    Convention promoters are beginning to respond to all of the attention with the Chiller Theatre Expo apparently removing Rob from the guest list for their upcoming show, and Wizard World allegedly banning him from attending future cons.

    A Facebook page called Robert Granito Is A Fraud went from nothing to over 2,000 fans in the past few days and is a good place to keep up with the latest on the story.

    Here are also are some videos taken at Rob’s table at MegaCon:

    Great Allentown Comic Con! Adds Lee Weeks for April 2011

    Filed under Comic Books, Convention News, Pennsylvania

    Lee Weeks

    Press Release:

    Added guest artist – Lee Weeks!

    The Great Allentown Comic Con! is proud to announce that the Lee Weeks will be attending our upcoming April 16th Show!

    Lee WeeksLee Weeks made his professional comics debut in the 1980s, penciling, inking, and lettering a short story (“Friends Don’t Let Friends Drive Drunk”) in Tales of Terror #5, a horror anthology published by Eclipse Comics. He is best known for his work for Marvel Comics on Daredevil Vol. 1 series (1990 – 1992), where he penciled the Last Rites storyline. It featured the fall of the Kingpin and is a sequel of sorts to Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli’s Born Again.

    Other titles he is well known for include: Batman, Gambit, Spiderman, Captain America, The Incredible Hulk and Captain Marvel just to name a few. He illustrated the Juggernaut storyline in Amazing Spider-man and recently has been writing and drawing a Daredevil project In sum it could be said that the list of characters Lee has not touched during his long career is shorter that those which he has influenced.

    He will be available for only a limited time during the day, so be sure to arrive early and secure a spot in line to see him! Rumor has it he also knows a few good card tricks. So be sure to stop by and ask him to show you one!

    For more about Lee please check out Modern Masters Volume 17: Lee Weeks – a definitive 128 page book chronicling his childhood, career in comics, and faith in Jesus Christ.

    In addition to Lee Weeks, the GACC will also have an Exclusive comic from 215Ink guest Adam Wilson – Free to the first 50 attendees! And a fabulous lineup of guests including: Gus Fink, Doug Baron, Glenn Whitmore, Darrel Goza, Eric Cooper, Jim Kyle and Many More!
