Special Guests:
Artists/Writers:
Dave Wachter! – Dave is the artist, co-creator and co-writer of the epic adventure web comic The Guns of Shadow Valley, which was nominated for Best Digital Comic in the 2010 Eisner Awards. He began his career as the artist and co-creator of the critically acclaimed independent comic series Scar Tissue. His work has been featured in various anthologies, including: Fiendish Fables, PKD Media Presents, and Hope: New Orleans.

Nick Mockoviak – Nick is a freelance illustrator. His talents have been put to good use as an artist on the “Night of the Living Dead: Re-Animated” project as well as being featured in the Drawgasmic Underground Artists Art Show. Currently he is developing a comic book that will see the light of day at the end of 2010, so be on the look-out!

Shawn Alleyne – Shawn was born and raised on the island of Barbados but later moved and set up in Philadelphia. From an early age he knew he wanted to be involved with art in some capacity and is currently working as a freelance artist, with many clients ranging from the field of comics, to music and film. Shawn is setting up a studio by the name of PYROGLYPHICS, a stylistic name that translates to “Hot Images”, to reflect his self-taught style.

John Kovaleski – John is the creator of the comic strip Bo Nanas and a contributor to MAD Magazine, making him one of the usual gang of idiots. His humorous scribblings have adorned magazines,
newspapers, greeting cards, puzzles, billboards, and that new-fangled Internet that all the kids
are talking about. His new comic strip “Infant Fred” will be coming to an iPhone, Blackberry or hand-held device near you this Fall. In his spare time he practices the ukulele and does the occasional escape-artist trick.

Bill Ellis – All New Issues is a web comic by Bill Ellis. The strip is a humorous look at relationships, being poor, the comic book retailing industry, gaming, and much more through the eyes of some, to put it kindly, flawed individuals.

Publishers/Industry Professionals:
Elizabeth Amber-Love Delaney – Elizabeth is a journalist, blogger, costumer and model who spends her Wednesdays slaving away at Comic Fusion in New Jersey. She is addicted to Nathan Fillion and Tiny Titans. She is best known as New Jersey’s Wonder Woman while participating and promoting an annual comic art auction raising money for domestic violence awareness month.
In Addition she will be participating as our Celebrity Costume Judge – deciding who will win for each Costume category!

The Ultimate Comics Group – NJ Based Ultimate Comics Group, LLC. (www.ultimatecomicsgroup.com) has been publishing amazing FULL COLOR comics since 2005. With 4 comics for sale and a full length Mature Audience Novel, UCG will have something exciting for ALL AUDIENCES!

Our first series, Livid Outbreak, was launched in January 2010. Currently, we have 3 issues online and were happy to see a good number of people checking it out. We love making comics, so we hope you enjoy reading them!
