<div>Georges Jeanty has just been added to the added to the guest list for Florida Supercon 2013, July 4-7, <a href="http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.floridasupercon.com&h=oAQEdge_S&s=1" class="">www.floridasupercon.com</a>. Georges Jeanty is an Eisner Award winning, New York Times Bestselling Comic Book Artist best known for his work on Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Seasons Eight and Nine, published by Dark Horse Comics.<br> <br> His first break into comics was in 1994, working for several independent p…ublishers like the now-defunct London Night Studios, and by 1999, Georges had moved to Georgia, joining the ranks of Atlanta-based Gaijin Studios and doing regular work for DC Comics. Georges’ first regular ongoing monthly comic book was Bishop: The Last X-Man published by Marvel Comics, followed by Gambit, Deadpool, and Weapon X. In 2006, Wildstorm (DC) Comics paired Georges with Hollywood screenwriter John Ridley, for The American Way, a controversial comic book mini-series set in the turbulent 1960’s.<br> <br> Soon after, Georges was hand-picked by Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s creator Joss Whedon, to be the regular artist of the highly anticipated Buffy “Seasons Eight and Nine” – the comic book continuation of the popular Fox Television series. Fox Home Entertainment produced motion comics based on the first 19 issues of Season Eight. In addition to being an incredibly charming person, Georges is a man of many hats: adventurer, scholar, Prince aficionado, Godzilla fan, sometimes table dancer… but above all these, “Comic Book Artist” seems to best fit this man of mirth, mystery and intrigue!See More</a></div>FLORIDA SUPERCON
