Press Release:

Mid-Ohio-Con announced that Adam Hughes has joined the guest roster for Mid-Ohio-Con 2010.  “Adam is one of the most influential and successful creators in comics today with a body of work that spans from comics and graphic novels to cards and gaming and has inspired work in countless other mediums.  We’re thrilled to welcome him as a guest of honor for our 30th anniversary show,” said James Henry, Managing Director of Mid-Ohio-Con.
 
The Eisner Award-winning creator is most commonly known for his stylized renderings of women – super heroines, damsels in distress, and figures in fantasy – as seen in Cover Run: The DC Comics Art of Adam Hughes which features the best of Hughes’ work for DC Comics, along with commentary from the artist, rarely seen preliminary material and much more.  Cover Run debuted in July 2010 at the number 2 spot on the New York Times Bestseller List and promptly sold out its first print run.

Adam began working in comics in 1985 at the age of 19 and in 1989 he started on his first mainstream comic title with DC’s Justice League. He worked on the book for almost 2 years, doing covers and interiors until 1990, then switching to just supplying artwork for the covers. In 1998 he began a highly successful five-year run as cover artist on DC’s Wonder Woman, bringing him critical acclaim and commercial success while solidifying his status as an all-star creator with legions of fans.

During the course of his career, Adam has brought his unique style to a broad array of titles for indie and mainstream publishers alike, including Star Wars for Dark Horse, Catwoman, Justice League, Legion of Superheroes, Power Girl, and Wonder Woman for DC, Gen13, Savage Dragon and Tomb Raider for Image, and Sensational She-Hulk and X-Men for Marvel, among many other titles. With the highly successful release of Cover Run: The DC Comics Art of Adam Hughes, Adam’s work is in high demand and we look forward to seeing new projects from the creator in the future.
 
Now entering its 30th year, Mid-Ohio-Con is one of America’s longest-running and most successful comic book and pop culture conventions. Each year, Mid-Ohio-Con brings fans of all ages together with leading comic book writers and artists, film and television creators and stars, as well as publishers and retailers from across the nation. Mid-Ohio-Con 2010 will be held on November 6-7 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio. Visit us online at www.midohiocon.com.

Win an Adam Hughes Original Sketch at HeroesCon!

Expires on: May 31, 201019:07:35 PDT

As many collectors  and fans know, Adam is renowned for his cover art on such books as Catwoman and Wonder Woman, as well as limited run covers for such titles as Power Girl, the Legion of Super Heroes, Joss Whedon’s Serenity, and assorted Star Wars projects, to name but a few. His designs for Sideshow Collectibles Marvel Comiquette Statues as well as DC Direct’s Women of the DCU busts and Covergirls statue series are much sought after and enjoyed. This auction is YOUR chance to have one of Adam’s pieces added to your collection, and not just any piece. The artwork you win will be a fully rendered sketch of the character of your choice. The images attached to this auction are an example of the quality of work that the winner can expect to receive.

To participate in this auction, you must meet the following criteria: the artwork must be collected from Adam in person by the winner at the upcoming Heroes Con  in Charlotte, North Carolina. The dates of the convention are June 4th to the 6th. You must be an attendee at the show, and be able to provide photo ID proving you are the same individual that won this auction. No one else will be allowed to pick up this artwork; so please if you do not plan on being at the Heroes Con, do not bid. We cannot make exceptions. You must be able to pay in full via paypal at the close of this auction or make arrangements to pay in cash at the opening of the show. Failure to do so will result in a second chance offer being sent out to the next highest bidder.

The following restrictions will also apply to this auction: Your request may be of a single character of your choosing. Adam reserves the right to add any complimentary characters that he may feel completes the piece of artwork. The artwork will be completed in gray-scale marker as all of Adam’s convention sketches are, with painted highlights added as Adam deems it necessary. The examples included with this auction may look like color was used; Adam achieved this effect using a combination or warm and cool gray tones markers. The artwork will be 11 by 14 inches, and all materials used are archival in quality.  No lewd requests will be accepted, nor any content deemed to be offensive. If you ask for something that is either of these, we will politely ask you for a second choice for the subject of your sketch.

Your artwork will be completed at Heroes Con, on the first day of the show (if Adam is able- Friday is a half day and seems to end very quickly!), unless other arrangements are made. For example; if you only plan on attending on Sunday, and would like to watch your sketch being worked on, we can move your piece to the first sketch of Sunday.  Something to keep in mind about Heroes Con: they have an art auction of their own. Adam will likely spend most of Saturday trying to complete a piece of art for the Heroes Con auction, which may cut back significantly on the number of sketches he will be able to complete during the show. So this auction may be one of only a few drawings he will be able to get done that weekend. Adam or myself will be in touch with you prior to the convention to talk about your sketch request. You can pick up your artwork from our table at any time during the weekend. However, if you neglect to collect your sketch, you will forfeit it. We cannot be responsible for shipping unclaimed artwork at the end of the show, and as stated earlier, the art MUST be picked up by the auction winner; no substitutions will be allowed.

Thank you for your participation in this auction. I know many people would like us to do this sort of thing for other shows, and even simply to provide Adam’s fans with a source for sketches outside of conventions. This is something we will consider in the coming months. But for now, we are looking forward to the trip to Charlotte, and Heroes Con, and wish everyone the best of luck in the auction!
