Bob Layton will attend Clermont Comic Con

Bob Layton will attend Clermont Comic Con November 19th

One of the comics industry’s true visionaries at every level, creator, writer, artist, designer, and entrepreneur, with over 5000 comic book credits to his name, Bob Layton has successfully migrated from comics to other media, including television, animation and feature films .

If you’ve seen the Iron Man movies, then you’re familiar with Bob’s work as the DVD extras make clear. Bob reinvented the Iron Man comic in the late 70s, taking it from near-cancellation to one of Marvel’s all-time bestselling series. The classic Iron Man story “Demon in a Bottle” was recently voted “one of the top 20 comic stories of all time”. Bob also is credited as the co-creator of Marvel’s War Machine and DC Comics’ The Huntress as well as designing Mattel’s hugely-successful “Secret Wars” toy line.

At Marvel, Bob launched the first mini-series in comics’ history with his highly-praised “Hercules: Prince of Power“. That series, which Layton wrote and drew, spawned several successful sequels, a graphic novel and is still available to this day in trade paperback format. Layton also launched the record-breaking comic series “X-Factor” for Marvel. As co-author, Bob was involved in the creation of the new Ant-Man (Scott Lang) and many of the characters that appeared in the hit Marvel film.

Dubbed the unofficial “King of Marvel Merchandising”, Bob’s Bronze Age art currently appears on over 10,000 individual items for sale.

Bob was instrumental in Valiant Comics’ meteoric success in the 90s — first as co-architect of the Valiant Universe and then, as its Co-Owner/Editor-In-Chief/Senior VP. Valiant continues to thrive to this day and has begun work on creating motion pictures based on Bob’s original creations with Sony Pictures

In 2007, Bob made a career change and turned his attentions towards film and television. Bob currently works with Hollywood and the various Florida Film Commissions in developing properties in state for motion pictures and television. Bob has creative credits in seven Marvel films and a host of other television and movie acknowledgments while working with such stars as Academy Award Nominee Edward James Olmos, Kevin Feige, Robert Downey Jr., Jon Faveau, (Iron Man 1-3 , Ant-Man and both Avengers films) Howard Stern, Tracy Torme’ (Star Trek, Sliders, Odyssey 5), Scott Winant (Huff, My So-Called Life, True Blood), John Turman (FF2: Rise of the Sliver Surfer), Patrick Massett and Jon Zinman, (Caprica, Tomb Raider, Deep Blue Sea), Anne Marie Gillen ( Fried Green Tomatoes) David Nutter (Smallville, X-Files, Sarah Conner Chronicles, Flash, Arrow), John Harrison (Dune, Children of Dune) , Dante Harper (Mission Impossible, Edge of Tomorrow)Comedian Dane Cook and George Romero (Night of the Living Dead).

SPOOKY EMPIRE EXPANDS WITH WICKED ADDITION OF SPOOKY DAY IN THE PARKS

A New Event by the Creators of Spooky Empire for a Weekend of Villainy Fun 

LAKE BUENA VISTA, FL – Spooky Empire is thrilled to announce the addition of a new event:  Spooky Day In The Parks. Coming to Central, FL this Fall on September 22 – 23, 2017, Spooky Day in the Parks is a two-day meet up event for fans that have a “villainous” side. The weekend taking place throughout the Walt Disney World® Resort, will include a mixture of Theme Park gatherings, Special VIP events, a “Bizarre” full of merchandise to fulfill their dark side, art exhibit, fashion show, and much more to be announced.

This is an opportunity for fans to gather and celebrate their favorite Disney villains and haunted attractions. Not to mention a chance to step out in your best ghoulish garb. Attendees are encouraged to express themselves through Disney bounding or wicked attire, but do keep in mind this is not a costume or cosplay event. Be it dark or fun, guests will be able to showcase their personal style and materialize for this spirited event.

“We wanted to combine the Spooky Empire brand with our love for Disney. It was only natural to combine the two and honor the villains and haunted theme park attractions,” said the owners of Spooky Empire “We are so excited to see this inaugural event come to life.”

Meet-ups during the event will happen at multiple locations around Walt Disney World:

  • Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort (central location)
  • Magic Kingdom® Park
  • The Twilight Zone Tower of TerrorTM at Disney’s Hollywood Studios®
  • With more to be announced

Ticket packages will be announced soon.

Rooms are available at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort for a discounted price of $199 per night. Rooms can be reserved by visiting our website SpookyDayInTheParks.com

Spooky Day in the Parks is not associated with Walt Disney World® Resort, Disney’s Hollywood Studios®, or Magic Kingdom® Park. Spooky Day in the Parks works closely with Disney to insure all park rules and regulations regarding attire are followed.
