    Hero Initiative Announces Baltimore Comic-Con 2015 Line-Up

    Mike Grell Green Arrow

    Press Release:

    Hero Initiative Announces Baltimore Comic-Con 2015 Line-Up

    BALTIMORE, MARYLAND – June 23, 2015 – The Hero Initiative, the charity that supports comic creators in medical and financial need, will hit the Baltimore Comic-Con September 25-27, 2015 at the Baltimore Convention Center, with fan favorite creators — VIP and General Admission tickets are now on sale! Come ready with your books, as the Hero Initiative booth will be a popular stop on the Baltimore Convention Center floor (please check the Hero Initiative website closer to the date for booth number and scheduled times). This year, Hero Initiative is pleased to bring to Baltimore classic creators Bob Budiansky, Mike Grell, and Marv Wolfman.

    Bob Budiansky spent years working for Marvel Comics as a writer, penciller, and editor. He is the writer responsible for the entire run of Marvel’s Sleepwalker in the 1990s. He is also renowned for his contributions to theTransformers comics, where he created much of the original comics content, created some of the more popular characters in their continuity, and provided the “tech specs” that were packaged along with the Hasbro toys in the ’80s. As an artist, Budiansky’s pencils graced the pages and covers of titles like Ghost Rider, Captain America, and Prince Namor, the Sub-Mariner. Budiansky spent 13 years working as an editor at Marvel Comics on titles like Captain America, Daredevil, Fantastic Four, and The Thing, plus Spider-Man titles including those during the famed Clone Saga story line.

    Mike Grell began his storied career in comics working in comic strips, as an assistant on Brenda Starr. After moving to New York City in the 1970s, Grell took over art duties on DC Comics’ Superboy and the Legion of Super-Heroes. He later flexed his skills as a writer, creating The Warlord at DC. He launched Batman Family and worked on Green Lantern/Green Arrow as well. In the early 1980s, Grell returned to his comic strip roots, taking over writing and drawing roles on the syndicated Tarzan. Later, he went on to develop his creator-owned properties, Jon Sable Freelance at First Comics and Starslayer at Pacific Comics. In the late 1980s and into the 1990s, Grell took over writing and illustration duties on Green Arrow after his much-lauded take on the character in the Green Arrow: The Longbow Hunters limited series. As he entered the 2000s, he worked on Marvel Comics’ Iron Man and X-Men Forever, and returned to The Warlord at DC Comics. Recently, Grell serialized a Tarzan story for Dark Horse Presents, and contributed to DC’s Arrow, from the TV adaptation of the comic.

    Marv Wolfman got his start on the fandom side of comics, writing for and editing fanzines in the 1960s. His professional career began at DC Comics, where he wrote a story for Blackhawk and would go on to contribute to titles like Teen Titans, Showcase, and Weird Mystery Tales. Moving to Marvel Comics, he eventually ascended to the role of Editor-in-Chief, before stepping aside so he could concentrate on his writing. There, he had an extensive run on Tomb of Dracula, where he created Blade, the character that proved the viability of Marvel properties on the big screen. He was also the mind behind such Marvel characters as Nova, Terrax, Bullseye, and Black Cat. He also wrote the syndicated Howard the Duck comic strip. He later returned to DC to relaunch the acclaimed New Teen Titans. and worked on titles including Action Comics, Dial H for Hero, Green Lantern, andNight Force before the game-changing Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series. In the 1990s, Wolfman was an editor at and wrote for Disney Comics. In the 2000s, Wolfman returned to DC Comics, writing Nightwing, DC Special: Raven, and, more recently, Convergence: Adventures of Superman and Convergence: New Teen Titans.

    “We love the Hero Initiative,” said Marc Nathan, promoter of the Baltimore Comic-Con. “Besides bringing spectacular, high-profile guests to Baltimore, they do amazing things for the comics creative community, and we can’t emphasize enough the positive impact they have in people’s lives.”

    NYC – Treadwater Signing

    treadwater

    Press Release:

    Chad Coleman’s new graphic novel TREADWATER releases this week and Forbidden Planet NYC is proud to announce that the star of AMC’s The Walking Dead and and HBO’s The Wire will be here signing copies of the book from 10am-6pm on Saturday July 25th!!!

    In addition to your copy of the book*, Chad will also sign any one collectible you want to bring with you, so break out those Tyreese action figures, your Walking Dead poster, a rubber hammer, boxing gloves, that “Cutty’s Gym” tee you screen printed, whatever ya got.

    Chad-ColemanTreadwater is a new SF series published created by Morgan Rosenblum and published by Darkrose Studios. Here’s the skinny on it:

    In the wake of a global economic meltdown, chaos erupts and the world’s safety is jeopardized by a new wave of crime and terror. A privately funded team of high tech special operatives is assembled, known as TREADWATER, the only force standing between hope and anarchy. As Germany forms it’s aggressive Stance behind a true military German patriot, General Kirklau, it becomes more than evident that the balance of global powers is all but obsolete. Governments and world-wide organizations have their hands tied as one wrong move by any of them could launch an all-out world war. Treadwater is the only organization taking a proactive stance to keep the world afloat, while others helplessly do just that – tread water.

    While Chad is super duper awesome and will be sticking around for quite some time on Saturday to accommodate as many fans that come down to our gig, quantities of the book are limited and you’re encouraged to pre-order in advance. Pre-orders may be purchased in-store starting Monday the 20th; your receipt will be accompanied by a ticket to our event.

    There will be a very limited number of copies available via mail order, but this allotment is expected to dry up fast and this option will be deactivated when we’re out, so get on it if you’d like a signed copy.
