Whether it’s creating new characters or reinventing older ones, Amy Reeder is here to remind us that great characters are what keep us hooked on comics. From her cover work on Supergirl, Ironheart, and Hit-Girl, to interiors on Madame Xanadu and Batwoman, to designing and illustrating the high-flying Image series Rocket Girl, to co-creating Moon Girl of the all-ages Marvel hit Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur, Amy has made it clear she’s just gotten started. Amy combined art and writing in her highly anticipated Amethyst miniseries for DC Comics.
Doc Shaner is a DC Comics exclusive artist. His past works include Future Quest, The Terrifics, Man of Steel, Supergirl, and Doom Patrol among others. Doc is currently working on Strange Adventures with Tom King and Mitch Gerads.
“DC has been the big buzz lately,” said Marc Nathan, show promoter for the Baltimore Comic-Con. “Certainly, with the hype around The Suicide Squad movie, their profile will only increase, and we’re really honored to have these 5 talents with us this year. They bring great storytelling to the DC Universe, and their fans are going to love getting a chance to meet them at our show in October.”
