Creator/writer JP Roth and artist Eric “EBAS” Basaldua (Zenescope) sign this Saturday, March 23, 2013 from noon until 7:00 pm at Heroes’ Haven. There will be CGC Certification on site! 50% OFF ALL Zenescope Entertainment Trades and “Ebas” Exclusive Giveaway!
JP Roth is an artist, poet and mother of one. She has spent the greater majority of her life immersed in history, legends and fascinating cultures. She loves her son, good books, rhythmic languages, mythology and weaponry.
She has won poetry competitions in three continents and published her thesis. Also loves comic books, cosmetics, clothes and fast cars. ANCIENT DREAMS is an epic tale of blood lust, torment, passion, sacrifice and a love capable of destroying not only the gods themselves, but even the laws of space and time. Eric Basaldua (known more commonly through his signature – EBAS) began his career at Top Cow Productions in 2000 under the direct tutelage of founder, Marc Silvestri. His early credits include Magdalena, Witchblade/Wolverine, and Tomb Raider.
He has attained notoriety through his works for Zenescope Comics and various cover art for several series within their line. Conducting all hand sketches using gray tones, Basaldua’s unique shading and anatomical display have become very recognizable. His sketch art and commissions have become more pronounced as he extends his professional footprint.
Kevin Smith takes you on a terrifying journey inside the life and times of his best friend, Bryan Johnson (aka, Beard-Guy from AMC’s COMIC BOOK MEN). Squirm with delight as Big Bry horrifies Kev and the audience with tales of deviltry and debauchery in the Jersey ‘burbs!

About The Hero Initiative
The Hero Initiative is the first-ever federally chartered not-for-profit corporation dedicated strictly to helping comic book artists and craftsmen in need. Hero Initiative creates a financial safety net for yesterday’s creators who may need emergency medical aid, financial support for essentials of life, and an avenue back into paying work. It’s a chance for all of us to give back something to the people who have given us so much enjoyment.
Since its inception, The Hero Initiative has had the good fortune to grant over $500,000 to the comics veterans who have paved the way for those in the industry today. For more information, visitwww.heroinitiative.org or call 626-676-6354.
