Spawn Creator at Baltimore Comic-Con

Press Release:

Todd McFarlane to appear at the 11th annual Baltimore Comic-Con on Saturday, August 28, 2010.

Berkeley, CA – 10 May 2010 – Image Comics Founder and Partner Todd McFarlane is set to appear at Baltimore Comic-Con 2010 on Saturday, August 28, 2010. The creator of the groundbreaking comic book SPAWN will take part in signings and other events during the show.

“I’m thrilled to be able to participate in this year’s Baltimore Comic Con,” says McFarlane. “It’s good to know events still exist where comics are the main focus, instead of being swallowed up by competing entertainment such as movies and video games. I appreciate all the support Baltimore Comic Con has provided Image with in the past, and am looking forward to attending and meeting with fans.”

Marc Nathan, organizer of the Baltimore Comic-Con, adds, “The Baltimore Comic-Con could not be more thrilled about hosting Todd McFarlane at this year’s convention. Image Comics continues to be at the top of all our publishing partners. We all know how popular Todd is and look forward to a great time!”

From budding baseball player to comic book artist extraordinaire to family man, Spawn creator Todd McFarlane has a wealth of experience in the world of entertainment. McFarlane’s road trip to creative autonomy began when he accepted an assignment penciling for Marvel/Epic Comics in March 1984. From there, he worked his way to the top of the talent roster before leaving Marvel to help found Image Comics with six other artists. It was then that Todd introduced his own character, Spawn. In 1994, Todd founded McFarlane Toys. Over the years, the company has become one of the largest, most renowned toy manufacturers in the world.

Don’t miss SPAWN creator Todd McFarlane at this year’s 11th annual Baltimore Comic-Con. He will appear one day only, on Saturday, August 28, 2010.

Image Comics is a comic book and graphic novel publisher founded in 1992 by a collective of best-selling artists.

My SDCC 2009 Recap!

My SDCC was unlike any other. My previous 5 years were focused mainly on getting as much sketches as possible. After 5 years of doing this though, I have finally delved into the realm of commissions. In addition to getting commissions, I spent my time behind the table of the biggest artist centric booth of the con, the Naked Fat Rave booth (or as I like to call it, The Rat Pack). This booth had some of the biggest name of the industry: Arthur Adams, Joyce Chin, Bruce Timm, Phil Noto, Amanda Conner, Matt Wagner, J. Scott Campbell, David Finch, and Jim Lee. While watching the lines pile up for various sketches and sketchbooks, I managed to also soak in the sights of Comic Con, as well as having the privilege of attending one of the bigger parties this year, Tyrese Gibson’s Mayhem party! Without further ado, let me take you on my journey through SDCC 2009.

It started off with a tour of Wildstorm and lunch at Karl Strauss with Jim Lee himself, along with artists from Wildstorm.

MAYHEM!

MAYHEM!

After the wonderful lunch paid for by Jim himself, I trudged on over to Comic Con to pick up my pass. After the show floor opened, I wandered about the floor, and came across the man himself, Tyrese Gibson. He was promoting his comic Mayhem all weekend long. Never have I met a man so determined to get the word out and sell his books. I saw him and his entourage at the tables, walking around selling the books, and basically popping his head around all over the place to make his name known.

After meeting Tyrese, and getting a feel for the show floor, I went back to my room to figure out my game plan for the following day.

Day 2 of the con made me excited, and I got to the show at 6 AM. However, what was before me boggled my mind, and I actually had to walk around and make sure that what I was seeing was true. There was a line of thousands all for Hall H at 6 AM! I had never seen anything like it.

Day 4 rolled around and after a day of more commissions and sketches, I was looking forward to Tyrese’s party at Stingaree, and I was not disappointed.

The last day of the con was a bit hellish, but I trucked on forward. I still had to get some great pics of what was considered the best booth presentation of the show, the Marvel booth.
