WELCOME CHRISTOPER DOOHAN TO GATORCON!

 As a child, Chris spent time on the sets of the original series with his father, James “Scotty” Doohan. At 19 years old, Chris was asked to be in the first Star Trek movie, Star Trek: The Motion Picture, which was only the beginning of several appearances on that beloved ship. His most recent credited Trek movie role put him in the transporter room of J.J. Abrams’ “Star Trek Into Darkness”, which followed his appearance in the directors first “Star Trek” in 2009, where Chris shared the screen with the new Scotty, Simon Pegg.

Chris is currently playing “Scotty” in the critically acclaimed, award winning web series, Star Trek Continues and also voices the character of Scotty on the popular game, Star Trek Online: Agents of Yesterday.

COMIC BOOK GUEST OF HONOR:  MARK SPARACIO!

 Successful illustrator Mark Sparacio studied sequential art for three years under the legendary Will Eisner recognized as the creator of the graphic novel at the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan. While still in school, Sparacio received his first contract job to do a painting for the movie poster for the United Artist film, The Draughtsman’s Contract. This opportunity resulted in a long run as a freelance illustrator for the advertising industry.   When the market for illustration collapsed, the door opened for Sparacio to return to the medium that is his first lovecomic books. In addition to painting covers for Billy Tucci’s Shi, D.C. Comic’s Green Lantern, Comics Buyer’s Guide and Alter Ego, Sparacio has also worked for Marvel Comics, painting covers for Heroes for Hire as well as covers for the Comics Values Annual from 2007 and 2008, and The Overstreet Price Guide for the same two years.
Sparacio recently completed the interior sequential pencils for issue #34 of Jonah Hex, along with painted covers for a new six issue Sgt. Rock mini-series being released by DC Comics. He has also done paintings for card sets for UpperDeck /DC Comics and for Topps Wacky Packages and Garbage Pail Kids.
In addition to handling the illustrations for No Quarter, Sparacio is currently penciling and doing painted covers for the new, on-going series Captain Action from Moonstone Comics, based on the classic Ideal Toys action figure (written by former X-Men writer Fabian Nicieza).  Mark is constantly developing new ideas and creating the corresponding artworkFor more information, please visit Mark Sparacio’s website: www.marksparacio.com
