Tenn– You won’t find a more beautiful spot for a convention than Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, so why wouldn’t you want to head there this weekend and join the Adventure– AdventureCon that is! X-Men and Indiana Jones artist Steve Scott sure is!

“I always look forward to coming back to this show that has an awesome legion of fans, and hospitable promoters,” says Steve. “In an unbelievable location.”

In his illustration career, Steve has had the pleasure of penciling numerous titles including: “New Warriors,” “Hourman,” and “JLA” just to name a few. In addition, he is the only artist tapped by DC to do any work for the “Batman Dark Knight” movie featuring the now legendary Joker turn by Hearth Ledger.

In addition to this ever growing list of published comics, cards, and other related illustrations, Steve also penciled “Kyle XY” for Disney/ABC with writer Jeff Parker.

If you are a fan of the television show, “Smallville,” you no doubt have also seen Steve’s flash animation work used in that shows production, as well. Steve is currently working on a new flash animation project to be announced soon!

It’s no wonder that Steve has the distinction of having his work owned by numerous collectors worldwide, including director George Lucas himself!
