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.

So proud in fact, that the preceding night they are hosting an informal cocktail reception in their store in advance of the event, attended by the staff, Adam, and if you’re lucky the lovely Allison Sohn, maybe even some other guest stars. That’ll start at 7pm on Friday June 25, and last until Adam says so.
