Scan to Black is an exhibition of original published comic book art by illustrator, V. Ken Marion.
Marion is one of the hottest rising stars of the comic book industry. He has worked on a number of titles as monthly penciller on Extermination (Boom! Studios) and Fathom: The Elite mini-series (Aspen Comics). Marion is the current monthly artist for Soulfire (Aspen Comics).
Marion’s artwork is influenced by the school of Jim Lee and closely reminiscent of Michael Turner’s style. Marion is known for beautiful portraits of women and his tightly penciled pages.
The term “scan to black” in the comic industry describes the process of scanning finished pencils and then converting them digitally to black without the use of an inker. This process usually requires finished pencils to be tight, clean, and clear. The result are beautiful renditions that bring an elegance to the comic-illustration genre and reflect a recent trend in the industry.
The opening and Comic Signing event are FREE and open to the public on Sunday, March 30, 2014 from 4:00 till 6:00 pm.
Pushkin Creperie Bakery is located at 541 Myrtle Avenue near the campus of Pratt Institute (between Steuben and Emerson Sts., across from the Pratt Store).
This event is sponsored by the Brooklyn Art Review.

Aspen Comics proudly presents their first ever super-hero series, IDOLIZED!
Welcome to the mind-bending new comic book series about a TV show where super-powered teens and 20-somethings are competing for the ultimate dream-prize: a guaranteed spot in that world’s top super-group, The Powered Protectors. The chance of winning offers fame, fortune, massive endorsement deals and, of course, a chance to actually save the world. Kids who dream of being worshipped as the next great, iconic hero would be falling all over themselves to get on – and hopefully even win – the show.
Against this backdrop, IDOLIZED is the story of a girl with fledgling superpowers and a dark past, who seeks revenge, and ultimately finds redemption, over the course of competing in this televised superhero competition show. It’s True Grit meets American Idol… with capes!

*UPDATE* A fundraiser website has been set up to assist Oliver Nome, details at the link!
DC/Aspen artist Oliver Nome (Flashpoint: Kid Flash, Kiani, DCU Online) needs to undergo surgery to remove a golf ball-sized tumor in his brain. As a freelancer, he has no health insurance and this procedure is sure to be quite expensive. For that reason his art rep and friend, Michael Alexandropoulos, and friend Ale Garza are starting a fundraiser for Oliver. Any artist that would like to donate a piece of art, a print, or even a signed comic may contact Mike (Mga1wars@aol.com) or Bob Shaw of Comic Art House (Bob@comicarthouse.com) for details.
Any fans that would like to contribute either art or a monetary contribution, may also contact Mike or Bob. Get well soon, Oliver!
