The quick-draw game that pairs professional comic book artists with stand-up comedians will crown a champion team from a talented field of four teams at the EMERALD CITY COMIC CON on April 9th at 2:00 PM. The top half of the bracket features artist SCOTT KOBLISH (Deadpool) and comedian DYLAN COLE vs. artist JEFF JOHNSON (Bornhome, Wonder Man) and comedian SILAS LINDENSTEIN. The bottom half will see artist CHRIS BURNHAM (Nameless, Batman, Incorporated) and comedian SALLY JORDAN squaring off against artist NICK PITARRA (The Manhattan Projects) and comedian EMMETT MONTGOMERY.
The Burnham-Pitarra matchup will not be the first time the two have faced each other in Sketch Fighter as Burnham edged Pitarra out in the finals of the 2014 C2E2 convention. Scott Koblish earned the top seed by virtue of a tournament victory in February, thus forcing the first-round rematch between Burnham and Pitarra.
All art created during the game, as well as one drawing done by each artists prior to the event will be auctioned off at the conclusion of the game, with the proceeds going to the HERO INITIATIVE.

Cameron Stewart is on tour supporting the release of the hardcover edition of his Eisner award winning webcomic, Sin Titulo. He’ll be at Floating World on Monday November 4th, from 6-8pm to meet fans and sign copies of his new book.
Following the death of his grandfather, Alex Mackay discovers an enigmatic photograph of the old man smiling happily with an unknown and alluring young woman. Could his grandfather—whom Alex remembers as a sad and broken soul, longing for death— have been leading a double life? Alex’s mounting obsession with unraveling this mystery snatches him away from his mundane existence and thrusts him into a weird and sordid world of ever-escalating danger—where dreams and reality merge, childhood traumas and family secrets are laid bare, and lives are irrevocably altered.
Cameron Stewart (B.P.R.D., Batman & Robin) blends elements of noir, magic realism, and autobiography in this highly lauded and Eisner Award–winning mystery-thriller.
