Press Release:

Steve Scott Heads Off for Adventure!– AdventureCon that is!

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!

Known for his work on “Razor” for London Knights, Indiana Jones for Dark Horse, X-Men for Marvel and most recently a Green Lantern special project for DC Comics, one of Steve’s favorite venues is AdventureCon.

“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. Steve’s work and rendition of this actor as the Joker can be found in the exclusive blue-ray package of the hit movie!

Other projects at Marvel Comics, and DC Comics include working with industry legends Louise Simonson and Chris Claremont on the titles “Magik” and “Exiles.” As well as titles in the successful Marvel Adventures line including: Fantastic Four, Avengers, and the Hulk. 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!

Scott will be at the convention all three days of the show available for signing and sketching, as well as offering several exclusive prints! So come on by.

Held at the Pigeon Forge Convention Center at the Grand Resort Hotel, May 28th-30th, this year’s AdventureCon promises to offer tons of excitement with a guest list that includes, in addition to Steve Scott: Marv Wolfman, Arthur Suydam, Gary Friedrich, Tom Feister, Billy Dee Williams, Charisma Carpenter, and many more, in addition to celebrity guests, independent film pros and even some awesome celebrity vehicles for you to take your pic with!
