Steve Scott Sketch Cards on Ebay–
Avatar Theme Entices Penciler for the Limited Run.
Atlanta— Steve Scott has just consented to provide a limited run of sketch cards to comemorate the astounding success of the runaway blockbuster, “Avatar.” A renowned comic book professional, Scott is known for his work on “Razor” for London Knights, Indiana Jones for Dark Horse, X-Men for Marvel and most recently an exclusive Green Lantern special project for DC Comics. His work has been featured in numerous gallery shows from Manhattan to Brussels, while conducting art classes and appearing in places as diverse as The Netherlands, Paris and Gijon, Spain. If you are a fan of the hit television show, “Smallville,” you no doubt have also seen Steve’s sequential work used in that show’s production. In addition, Steve has the distinction of having his work owned by numerous discerning collectors worldwide, the least of which is not director George Lucas himself!
Other titles which Steve has had the pleasure of penciling include: “New Warriors,” “Hourman,” and “JLA” just to name a few. In addition, Steve was 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!
With a resume like that, one wouldn’t think that up until recently, Steve led a duel life as firefighter by day and artist by night– for more than sixteen years, in fact! Even then, it took one horrible event to bring those two identities together. On September 11, 2001, he watched, with the rest of the nation as the Twin Towers fell. Soon afterwards, DC Comics published “The Worlds Finest Comic Book Writers & Artists Tell Stories to Remember.” Steve was selected among the few to contribute to this historical collection, which was later exhibited, and is now archived, at the Library of Congress. Something he is truly proud to be part of.
Scott has since relocated to the renowned community of artist in Atlanta, Georgia, encouraged to pick up the pencil full time by his contemporaries. And with great effect! Immediately, since, Steve’s work has appeared in the pages of DC Comics “Shadowpact,” “The Creeper,” and “Checkmate.” He got a particularly special kick out of bringing to life some of DC Comics strangest characters like Detective Chimp, Rex the Wonder Dog, Rag Man, The Phantom Stranger, and many others.
Recent and current 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.
Although some of Steve’s sequential art pages are available on the comic art market, this is the first time that Steve has consented to provide a limited run edition of select sketch cards for fans of his work and sketch card collectors. To celebrate this limited time event, several of these sketch cards are now available on e-bay and available from Eva Ink Artist Group (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Don’t miss this opportunity to own these exclusive cards by this renowned artist, while supplies last. The ebay auctions below end of February 14th, so check ’em out now!

In addition, Entertainment Weekly is publishing its second annual Comic-Con preview package jam-packed with exclusive first looks at some of the most highly anticipated TV shows and movies including Iron Man 2, which will be featured on the cover of this special issue.

Entertainment Weekly’s three Comic-Con panels will bring together some of the best and brightest creators in television and movies to discuss the work that’s being done in their respective fields. Footage from each of these panels will be available by July 26 on EW.com. The first of these panels will be “Wonder Women: Female Power Icons in Pop Culture,” moderated by Entertainment Weekly editor-at-large Ben Svetkey. It will feature a discussion with Sigourney Weaver (Avatar), Elizabeth Mitchell (Lost, V), and Zoe Saldana (Avatar, Star Trek) about the actresses who have redefined the rules, and the female characters who have shattered the glass ceiling for all women. This panel will take place at 1:15 p.m. on Thursday, July 23.
Next up, Entertainment Weekly executive editor Jeff Giles will moderate an in-depth discussion with iconic filmmakers James Cameron (Avatar) and Peter Jackson (producer of District 9) on the future of film, the art of film narrative and how technology and global culture will alter the art of on-screen storytelling in the next 20 years. This panel will be at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, July 24.
To close out the series, Entertainment Weekly senior writers, hosts of EW.com’s Totally Lost, and resident Lost experts Jeffrey “Doc” Jensen and Dan Snierson will prep Lost fans for the final season of the show with their sharp insights and bold theories. There may be a few surprises as well. This panel will take place at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, July 25.
For the third year in a row, Entertainment Weekly and Syfy will partner to celebrate all things pop culture at Comic-Con 2009 with an exclusive event. Hollywood and the genre’s most elite will enjoy music, food, and cocktails while entertainment luminaries enjoy views of downtown San Diego. This event is invitation-only.
In addition to these events, Entertainment Weekly’s second annual Comic-Con issue will be packed full of first looks at highly anticipated movies such as Sherlock Holmes, District 9, 2012 and 9, as well as exclusives from upcoming TV shows including Vampire Diaries, Flashforward, V and Stargate Universe. Plus: An exclusive first look at the new Twilight graphic novel. Five thousand complimentary copies of this special issue will be handed out to Comic-Con visitors and fans who stop by the Marvel Studios booth celebrating Iron Man 2. Guests at the Hard Rock Hotel San Diego and the Hotel Solamar will also receive copies of EW’s special Comic-Con 2009 issue.

Comments Off on James Cameron Debuts Avatar Footage at SDCC
Dork Shelf reports interesting information from a reliable source regarding the San Diego Comic Con and James Cameron‘s new film Avatar:
Apparently the huge 65,000 square foot H hall at the San Diego Convention Center is being converted into a massive 3D theatre for the event. This means that not only will Cameron be showing off Avatar at Comic Con, but that it will also be presented in full 3D as the director intended it to be seen. The hour long panel on July 23rd will feature James Cameron and two of the stars of Avatar, Zoe Saldana and Sigourney Weaver.
Later that day the same hall will play host to the Future of Filmmaking panel with Cameron and Peter Jackson. We can probably expect some more footage of Avatar and possibly our first look at Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson’s Adventures of Tintin movie. Spielberg, Cameron and Jackson have been the biggest proponents of this new 3D tech; Comic Con will be the first real public demonstration of what they’ve been up to with the technology. Every person that has seen footage from Avatar says that it really must be seen to be believed — I guess we’ll find out in a few weeks. Will it live up to the hype?
