Artist J.K. Woodward signs at Friendly Neighborhood Comics on Saturday, June 16, 2012 12:00pm until 4:00pm!
Woodward collaborated with A. David Lewis on the indie comic Mortal Coils and Michael Colbert on the Digital Webbing Presents series Crazy Mary where he still does covers and promises to do another full story. IDW noticed his work on Crazy Mary and offered him a gig doing a CSI:NY limited series and he followed in short order with a standout story in BOOM! Studios’ Zombie Tales series. When Peter David was re-launching his owner created series Fallen Angel at IDW, James was a natural choice for Peter’s dark world of magic, violence and redemption.
His painted work eventually caught the attention of Marvel editor, Mike Marts who chose him to illustrate X-men Origins:The Beast which was released September 2008.
Woodward illustrates various series for IDW and BOOM! Studios. His next series is the Star Trek / Dr Who crossover.
As a special bonus, anyone purchasing Star Trek / Dr Who will be entered into a free raffle to win an original painting by J.K.!

The GACC Summer Show will take place August 4 – 5, 2012 in the showroom at The Merchants Square Mall in Allentown, Pennsylvania.
“This is an awesome way to kick off our guest and event announcements for the Summer GACC show,” notes Christopher Wertz, Founder and Promoter of the GACC. “Joe Kubert is a living legend, and has contributed his talents not only to creating comic stories and characters but to sharing his talents teaching future generations of artists how to apply their skills. We at the GACC have worked hard to create an environment that both entertains and encourages younger fans to appreciate graphic arts much as Joe has done his entire career. We are further happy to be able to announce a chance for his fans to win an original sketch, while also supporting a great cause.”
Mr. Kubert will attend panels as well as conduct signings at the show and so there will be plenty of opportunity for his fans to see him. Mr. Kubert will be assisting the GACC in raising funds for the Tomorrows Children’s Fund charity, by donating an original sketch he will create while at the show! In addition, The Kubert School, which he founded in 1976, will also have a booth at the show and expect to see current and former students showing their support.

About Joe Kubert:
Born in 1926, Joe Kubert began his career at the age of eleven as an apprentice for Harry “A” Chesler’s comic-book production house. He has worked in the field ever since, and in his more than seventy years with the medium he has produced countless stories for countless characters, including DC Comics’ Hawkman, Tarzan, Enemy Ace, Batman and the Flash as well as his own characters: the heroic caveman, Tor, and Abraham Stone. He also edited, wrote and illustrated the DC title Sgt Rock for thirty years.
In the 1950s, Kubert was a principal in the creation of the first 3-D comic book. During the 1960s, he illustrated Tales of the Green Beret for the Chicago-Tribune New York News Syndicate.
In 1976, Kubert and his wife Muriel founded the first and only accredited school devoted solely to the art of cartoon graphics. The Kubert School, Inc. in Dover, New Jersey, has since produced many of today’s leading cartoonists. Pursuing this educational path further, in 1998 Kubert established a series of correspondence courses under the banner of Joe Kubert’s World of Cartooning. At the same time, he established his website: www.KubertSchool.edu.
Kubert has remained busy throughout the years. The last fifteen years, he has created SGT ROCK: BETWEEN HEAVEN AND HELL (written by Brian Azzarello) as well as FAX FROM SARAJEVO, YOSSEL, JEW GANGSTER, SGT ROCK: THE PROPHECY, and TOR: A PREHISTORIC ODYSSEY, all written and drawn by Kubert. In addition to these works, he produces PS Magazine for the U.S. Army (as he has since 2000) and has most recently written and illustrated a new graphic novel about a special forces team in Vietnam for DC Comics. DONG XOAI, VIETNAM 1965 is scheduled to be published in May 2010.
Joe Kubert lives in New Jersey. Two of his five children, Adam and Andy, have achieved great notoriety as comic-book artists.

With the help of donations and supporters, today, TCF provides a warm, healthy and loving environment for children in treatment; a full scope of services to relieve families’ emotional and financial stress; the very best possible medical care; and funding for research on these diseases.
