The event will feature a “Tribute to the Romita’s” in honor of their amazing careers. With a career spanning over 60 years in comic books,

John Romita Sr. is one of the true giants of the industry. He is best known as the seminal artist of The Amazing Spider-Man along with his body of work with Marvel Comics in the Golden, Silver and Bronze Age of Comic Books. Romita created and co-created characters such as the Rhino, the Vulture, Mary Jane Watson, the Punisher, Kingpin, Wolverine and many many more.

John Romita Jr. is a modern-day comic-art master, following in his legendary father’s footsteps; timeless runs on Iron Man, Uncanny X-Men, Amazing Spider-Man and Daredevil helped establish him as his own force artistically, and his work on Wolverine and World War Hulk is arguably the most explosive comic art of the last decade. In addition to Eternals with writer Neil Gaiman, JRJR teamed with Mark Millar on the creator-owned Kick-Ass, later developed into a blockbuster feature film. Avid Spider-Man fans rejoiced at the artist’s return to Amazing Spider-Man with the Brand New Day storylines “New Ways To Die” and “Character Assassination”. Later JRJR joined writer Brian Michael Bendis on the relaunched Avengers. He most recently joined writer Rick Remender on Captain America and writer Mark Millar on the further adventures of Kick-Ass.
